Since we got there before 6 pm we were able to get an appetizer of our choice half off. My co-worker Sheila chose the Stuffed Crispy Avocado. It was a deep fried avocado with shrimp remoulade and a basil vinaigrette on a crispy tortilla and romaine salad.
My mom chose the Tamales with sweet corn sauce, fresh pico de gallo, and a chipotle-lime sour cream.
We all shared the appetizers. I'm not a fan of tamales in general but they were better than any other tamale I've ever tried. The crispy avocado was good but I could have just eaten an entire bowl of the romaine and tortilla with the basil vinaigrette and been happy.
For the entree my mom chose the Florida Rock Shrimp & Fried Green Tomato Pizza. It came with Fontina cheese, fresh mozzarella, and Duroc bacon lardons with a Romesco sauce.
Sheila chose the Dr. Pepper Braised Beef Short Ribs. The short ribs were served in a pool of the braising liquid with redskin mashed potatoes, fresh asparagus, crispy onion strings and a horseradish creme fraiche.
Daphne chose the Pan Roasted Jumbo Sea Scallops with rock shrimp and feta risotto, grape tomato, bacon, grilled red onion, and asparagus salad with basil lemon butter. She said it was one of the best meals she's ever had.
I had the Super Kobe Burger with Wagyu beef, crispy applewood smoked bacon, provolone cheese, lettuce, tomato, Dijon mustard and mayo and topped with grilled onion. It was served with french fries.
After finishing out meal, well trying......the portions were huge, we asked about the dessert menu. After asking about the size of the bread pudding we all decided to split two orders of Louis' White Chocolate Pecan Bread Pudding. The waitress brought us two bowls with three slices of bread pudding topped with sliced bananas, a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream and drizzled with banana run caramel sauce. The bread pudding was good but the best bites were the ones that had a slice of banana. Sorry for the lack of a picture. We devoured them before I realized I'd forgotten to get a photo.
Overall the food made the 30 minute drive well worth it.
