Jen and I met up for dinner on Friday night at La Grande Orange Cafe in Pasadena. LGO had over 500 reviews on Yelp and an average rating of 4 stars. *sigh* Yelp reviews failed us again. The food was mediocre and over priced. The only two things that I actually liked was my Orangina, which came from a bottle, and the chips that came with the ceviche. There was an olive oil cake on the menu that we wanted to order for dessert, but after the disastrous appetizers and entree, we lost confidence in the quality of their desserts. I will not be eating at LGO again.
P & B’s Wedding Weekend September 21, 2011
My dear friends (and two of the most awesome people in the world) Peian and Branden were married this past weekend. The year long anticipation finally arrived and I’m kinda sad it’s over because I had way too much fun being a part of this wedding.
I hope they plan some kind of anniversary celebration soon.
Trummer’s on Main June 18, 2011
Last weekend I flew to Virginia to attend Evey and Josh’s very delicious wedding at Trummer’s on Main. I love the restaurant, everything from the high ceilings fans to the paintings on the walls. The food was so OH MY GOD delicious that I was tempted to ask for seconds. Although I don’t think the server would actually bring me a second plate of anything.
When we walked into the restaurant after the ceremony, we found sweet potato chips, popcorn and friends waiting for us at our designated tables.
Next the servers brought out big plates of grilled cheese sandwiches.
I love bread and the rolls were good. It took a lot of self control to not eat more than one. Yes. I had to take pics of the bread. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t.
For starters, I chose the chicken confit. I’m pretty sure that I’m going to have a food related dream about this dish some time. It was amazing.
I believe the other choice was a spinach salad. It doesn’t look or taste as good as my chicken confit though.
For my entree, I decided on the roasted chicken. Delicious. The green stuff was bayleaf crumbles.
The other choice was braised short ribs. Why didn’t they think to put the mushrooms with the chicken too? That would have been nice. I don’t know why the pic won’t rotate.
My dessert was the chocolate tart with rosemary lemon sorbet.
The other choice was the fruit plate with vanilla chantilly.
I like to thank the newly weds for choosing Trummer’s on Main for their reception because the food was amazing. I hope they are having a wonderful time on their honeymoon.
