I had an amazing food at Ming Tsai’s new restaurant Blue Dragon last night. I had a wonderful time with my Valentine, Jennifer (I love you).
Here is what we had.
Local Oysters 2 ways
Tempura with Avocado Purée &
On The Half Shell with Beet Mignonette, Yuzu and Caviar
Peking-Glazed Squab Breast
Foie Gras “Dirty” Fried Rice and Juniper Sauce
Lamb Loin Roulade with Root Vegetable Gratin
Black Truffle-Mushroom Ragout
Double Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie
I do eat out a lot (I have spotted 1,046 food items on my foodspotting so far), but most the time, I look for cheap food, so it may have been one of the most expensive night out. I think it was worth it — kind of food that I would expect to have if I spend a lot of money — it was like explosions of flavors. Blue Dragon may have become my favorite place to go.
We were also having this sake: Kikusui Funaguchi Ichiban Shibori, Nama genshu, Honjozo.
