My dad took me to the Pacific Dining Car last night for my 12th birthday. It was a pretty meat tastic experience. I ate an Ossa Bucco, which is slow cooked, cross cut veal shank. It fell of the bone, and melted in my mouth. It tasted like the gravy that Grandma makes at Thanksgiving. Thick, dark, juicy, and it came with a huge pile of mashed potatoes. The mashed potatoes had a bunch of vegetables inside of them, which went well with the mashed potatoes. I’m a kid, so I don’t always like vegetables, but somehow they did it right.
After dinner, I had a chocolate soufflé. My mom didn’t like it that much, but i thought it was great. Super chocolatey, melts in your mouth, and comes with a pile of whip cream.
This restaurant was great, and even better because I didn’t have to pay!
Well, here she is again… The mother in law in her ‘ all of a sudden’ quest for the best lamb.
As you may have read, I had the most delicious and most varied lamb dishes in Turkey. But enough about that already. With my new quest I had to find some good lamb locally….aha! I remembered Taverna Tony in Malibu.
Stopped in last night for a House Specialty…Lamb Tenderloin… charcoal grilled and deliciously spiced (as they say in their menu) in a light black peppercorn sauce. Excellent…succulent. OMG, that kind of sounds like a barbaric, bone tossing over the shoulder woman. I’m really a yoghurt and granola woman..I’m shocking myself here.
Anyway, for appetizer I had a Tiropita plate, which is a blended feta baked in filo– just to make sure I had enough cholesterol for the evening. It was worth it.
They also do a great Klefiko..baby lamb slow roasted with herbs, garlic, onions and oregano. My friend ordered that and was pleased.
Now I’m sure I am going to get letters from Meat Eaters Anonymous or some other twelve step program trying to help me.
Off to Ireland now, where I know they have good lamb (and good golf). ‘Till then .. Ta Ta!
