Restaurant Show @ Javitts
- Michele Cindy
Anyone go yet? Any tasty must seek items? Thanks
Went to the Show yesterday. As for unusual items, I sampled some "lox ice cream"......pieces of Nova Scotia salmon in a vanilla ice cream base. Surprisingly, not at all disagreeable! Nothing too radical at the Show this year. Grilled ostrich sirloin was quite good, as were a fairly large variety of unusual beers (many off-beat heffeweizen or wheat beers). The pastry competition was perhaps the best I've ever seen, with some truly remarkable chocolate sculptures. All in all, it made for a pleasant day.
I agree with you Barry, nothing to amazing at the show, but it was a fun time. The oddest thing I tasted was vanilla cheese, and I can't say anything other then it was odd. I too sampled the ostrich, but strangely all I could think about was how they kill them, you know those long necks decapitated made me a bit squeamish! There was a few interesting beverages. I like the fig flavored vodka and the Tangauray 10 was pretty good.
Hopefully next years will be better.
