Finding out that the executive chef was a fellow #Filipino , we were excited to taste his creations.
Starter plates: Caesar salad with fresh anchovies and bacon.
Can I just say 👌🏻👌🏻. The dressing was light and perfectly seasoned. Paired with anchovies, now it wasn’t your normal one but reminded me of a small fried #tuyo . Gave that subtle salty and crisp bite to it. Then the #bacon was more like #jamon . Like those holiday hams our momma makes during the holidays. Cured, lightly sweet and salty.
Next was the grilled #octopus . Yummy. Tender and melts in your mouth. 👍🏻 Well done, Chef Reyes!
Caesar salad with homemade Caesar dressing, a rare recipe made by my boyfriend. Definitely the best Caesar I’ve had!🥗🍋🐟 Dressing:
-6 cloves of roasted garlic, 5 anchovy filets, mashed with 2 tbs dijon mustard, 1 tsp sherry wine, heavy sprinkle of cracked pepper, half a lemon’s worth juice, 1 tbs Worcestershire, 3 drops Tabasco, 1 egg yolk & 2/3 cups extra virgin olive oil— emulsified.
-In a large bowl, toss Romain with dressing until covered. Add freshly grated Parmesan cheese & croutons and toss again
🌿 McAlister's Caesar Salad with Grilled Chicken 🌿
Comments: Long time, no Cae-sar! 😜 So I haven't rated a salad in awhile and was craving a Caesar. Overall this was a pretty tasty one from McAlister's. For starters, the appearance was top notch! I added grilled chicken to the top and it had a good flavor. The lettuce had a few brown pieces, but overall wasn't too bad. The dressing lacked that Caesar "zing," but there was a good amount of it on the salad. Extra points for Fleetwood Mac playing in the restaurant--really heightened the experience. 😉 Thumbs up for this Caesar!!
