Flores for dinner
Having had a very tasty brunch there a few mo ago, my partner and I returned for dinner yesterday. It was delicious. We had the following. The names of the dishes might not be exact since I don't take notes or photos of my food. ;)
1. Kanpachi cerviche w/ avocado and citrus cream. The fish is actually sashimi style (not cooked in the citrus juice). Cream is smeared onto the side of the bowl. Really light and refreshing. Could've easily had another bowl of this.
2. Pork cheek croquetas. The server revealed that these are actually made from a pig head's (and had been labelled a such) but that they changed the name it make it more appealing. The croquetas are about an inch in diameter and served w/ small slices of pickles and some aioli. The innards are totally soft and incredibly rich. *Too* rich, almost. The plate comes w/ 5; I could've been satisfied w/ just one.
3. Kale caeser. Homemade croutons! =) Very tasty and quite a large portion, although I wish they had tossed the dressing in a bit more thoroughly.
4. P.E.I. mussels w/ lime curry. Tasted exactly what you'd expect them to taste like. Mussels were small and nicely cooked, although a couple of them had some sand (rrr....).
5. Farro risotto w/ mushrooms and soft-boiled egg. Rich and delicious. The egg really helped the texture. The farro tasted strongly (in a good way) of mushrooms, although the mushrooms themselves, oddly enough, did not. ::shrug:: Also quite a large portion.
Served comped us for some apple liquor. =)
Nice ambiance, music was mercifully relatively soft. Sat at the counter, which was really quite pleasant.
Total (incl 1 ice tea and 2 glasses red wines) = $98. Not cheap, but we thought it was a respectable value for the quality of the food. Nothing was transcendent (or even that original, I think), but it was simply really well prepared and enjoyable.
