So, I planned out every-other-day blogs for you guys and pre-scheduled them to post right on time, but I’m interrupting my beautiful plan to let you know that I AM NO LONGER LAME BECAUSE I WENT TO COCO SALA FOR DINNER DURING RESTAURANT WEEK.
Also, please note that this is the same restaurant I went to for my birthday one year ago, during January 2011’s restaurant week! What a weird coincidence. So this time, I knew that “Bacon Mac & Cheese” is kind of a let down and so, when the waitress recommended that as a popular item I knew to avoid ordering ALL popular items and follow my heart.
And so I followed my heart, to a mini cup of steaming hot chocolate. To a basil-infused lemonade (with alcohol, of course, I mean, it was $13). To a pear, blue cheese, and candied walnut arugula salad.
To a small plate of scallops and a tiny bowl of shrimp mac & cheese. Then, to a plate of spicy chocolate deliciousness, finished off with a shot of kahlua. Delicious. Seriously.
And not only did I eat all of this deliciousness, the portions were small-ish so I don’t feel like a big cow (although those cupcakes are calling my name) and I got to do it with a fantastic friend and to meet one of her friends from before DC. All-in-all, this was a great day.
And happy birthday to us, Mom! :)
