Our plans from last week got cancelled since I got so sick so M and I rescheduled our Truffle dinner at CLINK for this week. After a long day of work I finally got ready, got pretty, got REALLY hungry and was ready to drive into town for a night of good drinks and good food.
I am Food Ninja, hear me roar…
I parked Valet at the Liberty Hotel since that was one of our ultimate, possibly last, destination of the night… I grabbed a drink at the bar and waited for M to arrive. And then a “short walk” to No.9 Park. SO NOT A SHORT WALK WHEN IT’S FREEZING OUT! Up the hill, down the hill… thank GOD I wore my extra thick long fur jacket hahaha. FREEZING, my nose was snotted up and eyes were tearing up hahahaha FROZEN. As soon as we got in I was like de-frosting. Got a few ultra strong drinks and got ready to grub.
Customized Cheese Plate
I told them no goat cheeses, and the ones they picked were delicious. My favs were the middle three. I also LOVED the toasted nuts ;] Macadamia nuts. MMMM TOASTY.
Chicken Fried Foie Gras + Waffle
The most AMAZING dish! OMG. This TOTALLY ruined regular Fried Chicken + Waffles for me. I can still smell and taste it. The butter was SOOO creamy, salty and amazing. The waffle was fluffy and perfect. AMAZING Maple Syrup and that GIANT Perfectly Fried Foie??!! Best dish of the night HANDS DOWN. And we’re just still pre-eating :] Totally ruined the rest of the food of the night for us HAHAH…
Short Ribs & Bone Marrow
Actually have no idea how this showed up on our table… we didn’t order this, But it was good :] The veggies were so good!!… BONE MARROW!!!
Pretzels with Mayo & Whole Grain Mustard
I’m a sucker for pretzels, obviously… so M knew just what to order.. he knows my tummy so well :] HAHA… these were amazing.. NOM NOM NOM.. tiny bites of yumminess.. the best part is the pretzel skin anyways so little bites make me oh so so happy!
Bone Marrow on everything, Pretzels with everything!!!!
Bone Marrow and Pretzel.. hahaha I have issues :]
AND yes, this was our Pre-Dinner :]
“Some people pre-game, we pre-eat!” – M
We ate so much and for so long we were a TINNNNY bit late to CLINK :] Hehehe SOOO WORTH IT! The restaurant got a cab for us so we were there in a jiffy!!! YUM! Must return again and get everything else on the menu!
Oh and then there was this moment:
