Something Fishy? Or Just Ducky?

Dinner at Simon Lin's just outside Chicago tonight. Forgot the camera at the hotel. Dammit. But yay for Simon Lin who has a neato picture menu on his site.

Oh... first a Seaweed Salad sidebar: had seaweed salad and a lovely smoked fish plate at the Drake Hotel in Toronto yesterday and Sheena remembered how much she adored seaweed salad, and thought I'd eat it again today. Then looked at the nutritional content. Yowza baby. A sodium dirty bomb. Just a heads up. That is all.

Tonight wasn't in a huge sushi mood but the Tartare Parfait was too much to resist. Tuna and Salmon tartare with a bit of avocado, creme fraiche topped with caviar. Served on an upside down martini glass with some baby greens under glass. Yummy, and bristled with hostility when required to share.
Main was the Sweet Crispy Duck. Done medium, on a bed of sweet potato mash in a yummy sweet & sour type of glaze. Lightly spiced steamed veggies on the side.

One of the dining companions had the Hot Roll, which Sheena coveted from afar. Maybe next time.

How evil, just as I'm struggling with late night snackies as I begin my Lose Five Pounds diet!

prices, sheena. people of scottish descent need the odd price to get a proper perspective on the food.

The tartare parfait was $9 US.
The duck was $22.
I don't know how much the hot roll is.

Seaweed salad is actually quite inexpensive. $4 at the Drake, and $4.50 at Simon's.

Talk about work of "Art"-you should be a food photographer for a magazine.
Ever thought about it?

Hmmm....me- airport lunch (over-priced, dried-out crap). 3 or 4 hours later- airplane food (chemical-laden, flash-frozen, re-heated crap). This evening- club sandwich from hotel "market".

Maybe we should switch jobs for a while...
