We started out by ordering edamame dumplings with shallot-sauternes broth to share and personal servings of chili rock shrimp with toasted ginger.
The dumplings were magnificent. The texture was quite interesting. The outside was smooth and slick. The inside was creamy and a little grainy. The broth complemented the dumplings quite nicely.
The chili rock shrimp lived up to the hype. Although, I wish we had shared the dish because neither of us finished our portion. The shrimp were not as spicy as I liked, however one of the servers provided us with some chili sauce that provided the appropriate level of spice. The only issue I had with the shrimp was they were coated in batter. While I'm not big on "healthy eating" I don't love eating fried things. Had we split the dish, it would have been more than enough.
For my main course, I ordered Kung-pao Monkfish and we split Lobster fried rice. I'm sad to report that the fried rice was just rice with lobster. There was no real flavor to it, but again that chili sauce rescued it.
The Monkfish was not as spicy as I would have liked but was otherwise satisfying. A warning that it is also coated in batter so again not my favorite. Although we were both filled to the brim, we decided to make enough room for dessert.
That beauty is Crying Chocolate: malted white chocolate ganache and coffee ice cream. It was so good I'm pretty sure we did not take breaths between bites. It didn't take us too long to finish it up.
