Arthur's

Arthur's: Round Two. Earlier entry: January 5.

When a restaurant's complimentary bread is exceptional, it makes us sit back and relax, assured of a satisfying meal ahead. This one hit all the right notes: warm, freshly made and fabulously fragrant.

Cobb Salad. Also a pleasure, featuring some of our favorite ingredients: boiled eggs, avocado & blue cheese. Combined with a hearty helping of shrimp, smoked beef & raw leaves, this could be a complete meal on its own. Why hasn't the Cobb Salad overtaken the Caesar in popularity across the globe?

Grilled cod fish with creamy spinach & sauteed asparagus. As tender and tasty as cod can be; this "safe" dish won't disappoint, but won't linger in the memory either. Still, a healthy recipe, impeccably prepared.

180-gram medium-rare tenderloin with caramelized onions, green beans & shallots. Succulent and flavorsome; not the finest in town, but we can't find fault with it.

  3. The tenderloin is especially enticing to me today since I'm in the mood for some real meat this weekend. :D

  4. Lfb: real meat? Sounds like you've spent a week being a vegetarian (which my vast network of highly trained spies assures me isn't the case!) :D

  5. You raise a good point about the cobb salad not being as popular as it's counterpart. Why do you think that is?

  7. makan monster: i suspect it's because it's not as cheap and convenient to make, since the ingredients for caesar salads are easier to obtain and the caesar recipe is a bit less complicated. still wish it were more widely available!
    eiling: ouhhh, i think this was my first time trying them! i think i like 'em though :D
