So the soft opening of a Food & Wine was an overall success! Everything I ordered was available with the exception of the Tofu in Japan. Here are the iPhone shots I shared yesterday on my voyage. Our goal was the “new” stuff. “Real” photos and write ups to come. Going back for more today! My only sad faces thus far are as follows: Singapore Sling – Still makes us feel like we’re drinking paint thinner. Scotland’s Salmon – loved the cauliflower, but we just can’t do cooked salmon. The Haggis – flavor was fine, but kind of dry. I liked it more in the second and third bites.
Brazil: Seared Scallop with Ragout of Tomatoes, Peppers & Hearts of Palm; Crispy Pork Belly with Black Beans, Onions, Avocado & Cilantro
Argentina: Beef Empanada
Singapore: Lemongrass Chicken Curry with Coconut and Jasmine Rice; Singapore Sling featuring Hendrick’s Gin and Cherry Heering garnished with an All Natural CherryMan Farm to Market Maraschino (did not receive said garnish)
South Korea: Kimchi Dog with Spicy Mustard Sauce; Soju Fruit Slushy featuring Jinro Chamisul Soju
We ate and drank a lot more and you can find the pics on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Some circumstances beyond our control are causing me to cut this a bit short. We’ll be heading back to the festival shortly, so follow along on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook! See ya real soon!
