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!
