Due to lack of food at home (empty fridge! :shock:) and my cook-laziness, we eat out twice a day on Saturday.
For lunch we went to Rice. After that visit with Maggie and Bobby, it became our to-go restaurant in our neighbor for a quick meal.
Since then we always order the same appetizers.
For me: veggie soup with silken tofu
For Star: chicken soup
As entree, I had thai stir-fry veggies with basil and fried tofu
that came with black rice which was super chewy (love it!)
Star had shrimp spaghetti with bacon
Afternoon was spent at the gym and an 2 hour nap, preparing for a formal dinner at Taberna del Alabardero. Washingtonian Magazine restaurant critic Robert Shoffner calls it “The best Spanish restaurant in the Country”.
For five of us we ordered 3 appetizers
Dry Tuna with Garlic, Olive Oil and Pistachio Sauce served with Salty Tomato and Crunchy Bread
Grilled Fresh Vegetables over Green Asparagus Creamy Sauce and topped with a Local Farmer Poached Egg
Star and Adam shared a Lobster Paella
I “steal” half of the lobster from his plate 😉
our guest had Angus Beef Tenderloin in a Mushroom Sauce served with Broiled Potato stuffed with Cheese
the other guest and I had Codfish Comfit server over a bed of Creamy Potato Pure, Grilled Octopus, Sea Salt and Paprika
it was the best codfish I’ve ever had!!!
Star was too full to have dessert, so I had this Mixed Egg Cream Custard with Mascarpone and Orange Sorbet for myself
It was delicious, so creamy and not too sweet!
Adam had Egg Yolk Custard with Rosemary essence topped with Yogurt Ice-Cream
and the guests shared Peach Ragout in a Light Coffee Syrup with Cream Custard topped with a Magdalene
It was an amazing meal and great conversation. We learned things about NIH, how they do experiments to schizophrenia patient. Interesting 😉
Sunday will a busy day, climbing and frisbee. Got to run! Have a great Sunday you too! 🙂
