Most of us had the 5 course dinner tasting menu last night (most of them had it with the 5 courses of wine selection - that came with the dinner as well - except for me, because I don't drink...) I swear... by the 2nd course, I was completely full... I really couldn't eat anything else. Luckily the restaurant was nice enough to give us take home boxes and I ended up taking the entire next three courses home. We got to the restaurant at 5:30 and didn't leave until four hours later... And even if I didn't have a drop of alcohol, we were all laughing and talking so loud that you would've thought that we were ALL drunk... ;P
Here are some photos of us last night (with some photos of our entrees - and due to the sheer volumne of food last night, I could only pick a few of the highlights or this entry would go on forever!! :))
All the girls in our office were all ready for a nice dinner at Alan Wong's! :)
Everyone was really excited about trying the wonderful food!! :)
“H.R.Caesar Salad” in Cheese Basket
Chopped Romaine with a Creamy Anchovy Dressing and Kalua Pig, Lomi Tomato Relish
This was the first thing that arrived... that cheese basket was one of the best parts of the salad!!
This one I'll have to do from memory since it's not on the website menu... It was Sweet Kona lobster on a deep friend, panko encrusted potato cake with shiitake mushrooms and... some kind of great sauce! (I know, I could never be a server at Alan Wong's!) ;) This was to-die-for!! SO delicious!! :)
Grilled “Kalbi” Short Ribs
With gingered Shrimp, Ko Choo Jang Sauce
By the time this came, I was so full, that I immediately had to put it in my "to-go" box... Everyone said it was delicious, though! :)
Here I am with my boss (not to be confused with my BIG boss) and my co-worker Ana.
It was SO nice of my BIG boss to take us out to dinner!! We all had such a wonderful time! :)
Today Mark & I are taking it easy (I may have to run a few thousand miles to burn off the calories from last night's meal...) and then this evening we're headed to my co-worker Steve's house (who is pictured above in the second photo) for a 4th of July BBQ.... *SIGH* more good eating - how will I ever lose weight this way??
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!! *HUGS!!*
