One of the best things to look forward to during each special occasion is being with family or friends and getting that special time to relax, to forget work, drop all the stress, be with those you love and celebrate traditions. Just like the one we had when my daughter turned 15 years old.
See how we celebrated her day with the most delightful dinner here:
After a year since Village Tavern had a branch here in the Philippines, many foodies have eulogized about it, including me. Many have gone nuts by just checking out the miscellany offering. I consider it God's divine intervention when I said I have to be back soon after we have tried the tavern. Yes! I got an invite to their first anniversary to try out the spanking addition to their teeming all-American comfort food selection. I'm quite sure, if my kids would read this post, they would say, "we haven't even tried the other food, now they have added more." Well for me, I guess there would be more reasons to come back.
We began the night of gustatory experience with Crispy Clams with Spicy Lemon Dip (P 375). A basket of crisped baby clams served with the concoction of spiced up mayo, lemon dip and simple salad greens.
Before Chef Josh left our table, he said that there is no bad cholesterol in it. I gawked and said, "really, come on." Realizing how stupid I was and how so right he was and after much debate with my husband on this, I can fairly say that indeed bone marrows (specifically those of grass-fed animals) are nutritious and scientists and doctors said it contains many important elements for brain growth and development. It also takes much less energy to digest than plant food.
When I saw the menu, I instantly checked out what would be served for dessert. It was the thought of lime sorbet that had got into my mind when I saw the name, not realizing by then that it's a souffle, frozen at that. So I said to myself that it will be for cleaning up the palate. Indeed, it was to lighten up and freshen up the palate for more of what they have!
Oh yes the beverages! If you have some cravings with cocktails to match your impeccable food choices, Village Tavern is also treating their customers with half off on all wines by the glass, as well as all cocktails and liquors to their Wednesday Night Out.
