flavours: sweet meeting savoury, then there was the creaminess from the cheese and myriad sauces, all of which didn’t necessarily join forces effectively for a mouth-watering bite. A few liked it, but some of the food agents had a difficulty judging the dish, and consequently gave mixed reviews.
The third stop, Usain Bolt’s Tracks and Records created sweet garlic and herb ham steak en croute with stuffed plantain cream cheese mushrooms wrapped in zucchini. Now, I know there can never be too much ham, but large chunks of ham can either make or break the balance of a dish. Again, the jury was still out on the ham steak that appeared intimidating in the sandwich pastry. Some dug right in and others fell short in completing the meal, consuming only half or going straight for the ham. The talk of the dish came from the stuffed plantain cream cheese mushrooms wrapped in zucchini which flew off the plates of many.
The greatest part of the night? Exchanging reviews and indulging in the whole experience with fellow foodies. So you know how they say third time’s the charm? Well, for the food bloggers and media personnel aboard the Restaurant Week Media Bus, the first time was definitely the culinary charm for them all: great job, Fromage! The night’s big winner.
