A Dinner to Remember

I know this post is long overdue. For my mother’s birthday two weeks ago, my family and I went to Jeans Georges. My dining experience was definitely one of the best I’ve ever experienced. All of the food was so exquisite, and there sure was plenty of food.

My dinner started off with a delicious amuse-bouche – a pickled cucumber with some sort of gelée on top, watermelon with cheese, and my favorite, miso soup with popcorn.

My first course came out – hamachi sashimi with avocado, radish, and yuzu – a true work of art to say the least.

Following my delicious sashimi, I continued my food adventure with sea scallops accompanied by sweet caramelized cauliflower and a caper and raisin emulsion.

For my main course, I ordered a rack of lamb which the server carved in front of me! The rack of lamb was prepared in a sweet chili glaze and came with a nice mix of veggies.

I was already full by this point, but how could I forget about my beloved dessert? My eyes widened when I read the dessert menu. I saw a dessert dedicated to chocolate – a tasting of four chocolate desserts. I just knew I had to pick that dessert. The four mini desserts are as follows (as shown in the picture below starting with the lower right quadrant and working my way clockwise):

1) Mexican chocolate beignet
2) Lemon ice with cinnamon and white chocolate meringue (my least favorite of the four just because I dislike white chocolate. But trust me, this quadrant was good too).
3) Warm chocolate cake with vanilla bean ice cream (definitely my favorite!)
4) Bitter chocolate candy bar

As if this wasn’t enough dessert, the server brought us some scrumptious petits fours: blackberry macarons, assorted chocolates, orange jellies, and ever-so-fluffy vanilla marshmallows. These marshmallows tasted like clouds. I wish I could have a pillow this soft.

They even brought my mom a chocolate mousse cake for her birthday.

Definitely a dinner I will remember for years and years.
