I had dinner with in-laws. It's not because of Easter. I don't have the holiday. I just had 3 days off and I thought it would nice to have family dinner on Sunday. So I got some seafood and grilled them. I didn't take a picture of the table (because I was busy to eat) but I also cooked corns and zucchini. I had a great time under the beautiful sunshine.
I went to Emporio with my vegetarian friend. I eat meat. I mean I LOVE meat, but I stayed vegetarian style today. I had vegetarian ball with mushroom sauce and vegetable quinoa. I liked them. I would like to try different sauce next time.
The first summer day in Pittsbugh (Did we have spring??). To celebrate this beautiful weather, I had dinner outside. Moet Chandon is a bit too nice to open on the normal day, but it's not regualy Sunday. Cheers for sunshine. I was very happy and made big appetizer which goes good with Sparkling wine. :)
Kilkenny, one of my favorite beer. I didn't think I could have this beer here in Pittsburgh. So when I saw the beer server at Harp and Fiddle, I was so excited. Food was ok. I ordered Shepards Pie and it was salty. But I will come back soon (maybe next week?) just for Kilkenny!
It was such a beautiful day and I definitely want have lunch outside. So I picked Jerome Bettis. It was around noon when I got there but nobody was outside. I took a table and ordered food. I thought more people might come out but I was the only one sat outside eventually. I felt bad for my server and left good tip for him.
Jerome's Hamburger - hmmmmmm. I won't order it again.
Pasta at dish is awesome ....the appetizers are mediocre. I had known it. I just wanted give another chance, I ordered soup. Ok, I was right. If I am hungry for appetizers, just order a plate of pasta, and have pasta for main dish too. What I wanna say is Pasta tastes good.
olive oil tastes really good!
Soup - Leek and Potato soup. Very mild and nice.
Pappardelle ai Funghi - Mushroom Pasta. The pasta has so flavorful. Three kinds of mushroom make good juice!
Spaghetti ai Frutti di Mare - Seafood Pasta. I always like this pasta. I had red wine. I should have white wine. maybe next time!
Usually, we use thin sliced pork for this recipe but of course I have no ideas where I can get. So I cut chicken as thin as I could. For side, cooked nappa cabbage & mushreoom, onion & seaweed miso-soup and rice.
I went to Grit and Grace which is a sister restaurant of Spoon and BRGR. They have some $5 dimsum menu. I like the idea. The server walked around and we can grab some from the tray. They usually have 5 kinds and the dimsum menu is changed occasionally. After some dimsum plates, we had salad, grilled chicken and ramen. I liked the atomosphere. Def, Ill be back.
Dimdum : Salmon Tartar
Dimdum : Pork Belly
Dimsum : Cheese rissot ball
Roasted carrots, Edamame, Romain Salad
Chicken Thigh and Fried rice - The chicken is very crispy!
Duck Ramen - Don't expect original ramen. The broth tasted like Japanese soba noodle one. It was ok.
Pizza party at in-laws. I made Kale Salad. I brought some ingredients but I totally forgot about dried fig. I found rasins in the cabinet and it worked on the salad. And the main dish, Home made pizza! It was awesome. The dough is perfect salted and crispy. It's always nice to have family dinner.
