The eggs got somewhat scrambled. I've made carbonara so many times it's pretty much my signature dish, but a combination of trying to make it a little creamier by adding some heat to the pan in the end, and only being able to stand on one leg while cooking (knee surgery), made for an awful dish. Also, the pecorino I used was different from my usual go-to, and I made the mistake of not even tasting it before using it. I used the usual amount and it turned out to be was too salty. frown.gif

Yes, from him. He also had a bunch of huge live crabs that were being snatched up by older chinese people. I did saute them alive.

Yep. A couple of the big ones were filled with roe (at least I hope that's what it was - it kinda looked dark orange gelatin) and I got those off my wife's plate too. That was a bridge too far for her and it did look a bit like bloody guts, but it was delicious.

Great lobster, great whole snapper, horrific clams, bland fried rice. Not too bad, but honestly I'd stay home next time.

Newport tan cang. The lobster and french style beef there are amazing.

Don't know what was french style about that beef but it was reasonably tasty. Not a whole lot better than general take out, but the lobster was properly cooked.

Ya strange, because the clams were rubber... we got a soup with squid, intact shrimp and clams in a tom yum broth and it was all hideously overcooked, and unless tom yum is really made to order so that you can taste the vibrancy of the herbs and citrus, it takes on this sort of pond scum flavor that makes me wish I was dead.

The fish was gorgeous, fresh, very well done and the lobster was great.. but got the rest of the seafood bordered on terrifying. The clams came in this snotty type sauce I'd discussed before in my hatred of chinese food.

Then again, I've had 3 great chinese meals inside of a week so who am I to complain.

Cooked some striped bass tonight (didn't bother with plating). This is a great fish; very meaty. The skin crisps nicely (as long as you dry it very well prior to placing in the pan).

Inside, the meat falls apart.

Is that a single slice of mushroom?

If it is, why did you score it?

Roasted. Artichoke hearts and fennel and onions with saffron. Also a tomato olive oil sauce and an aioli not shown.
