We decided to celebrate our Two Year Wedding Anniversary by redeeming our Thrillest Reward Dinner for Two at Ember Room. This tasting menu pitted Todd English's dishes against Chalermkittichai's. We were ready to be official judges and took our responsibility quite seriously.
|Gingered Sapphire & Ember Julep|
|Thai Pastrami Meatballs & Roasted Sea Scallops|
|Berkshire Pork Belly|
Then came the first f the Chalermkittichai dishes: Shrimp Satay with Finger Chili, Cilantro and Lemon Grass. Good, but not as exciting as the English dishes so far.
|Thai Chicken Wings & Blackened Ahi Tuna|
|Chocolate Baby Back Ribs|
|Crispy Gingered Oysters|
For me there was no question, Todd English was the clear winner with some really interesting flavor combinations. The Mr wasn't as cut-and-dry, but after some deliberation announced English as his favorite too.
