Dine About Town starts today Jan 15th, so we kicked it off with dinner at Daffodil Restaurant, which is less than 2 blocks from where we live.
There were three of us for dinner and we ordered the DAT menu and the regular menu as well. To start off with, we had these cheese topped biscuits. So delicious with the butter.
The DAT menu includes an amuse bouche, this is a potato croquette with a creamy sauce that had a bit of a spicy kick.
From the regular menu, we tried the French Fried Green Beans with a Horseradish Honey Mustard Dip ($6). Nice and crispy but also a bit oily. The green beans were also a bit stuck together so a bit hard to eat because you had to figure out separate them.
For the First Course of the DAT menu, I chose the spinach salad with fennel and pomegranate seeds. Refreshing.
From the regular menu, the pulled pork with cole slaw and onion rings. Nothing amazing but not bad either.
For the main course of the DAT menu, V chose the short ribs braised in red wine and served with mashed potatoes and broccolini. The meat was tender and you could really taste the red wine.
For my main course of the DAT menu, I chose the Artic Char served with squash and quinoa. The skin of the fish was super crispy and delicious. I’ve never had Artic Char before but it was yummy, nice and light.
Dessert for the DAT menu was an apple galette served with some berries and vanilla ice cream. I haven’t had a dessert like this in the last 2 months, so perhaps my taste buds don’t know any better anymore, but it was yummy.
Not sure if we’ll be back as it wasn’t amazing but DAT gives us the opportunity to try all these different restaurants for an affordable price.
