Restaurant Week

Most of you I'm sure have heard of Restaurant Week.
I learned of this amazing event about three years ago in Philadelphia and loved the idea, and now I got to enjoy some yummy food here in Orange County, too. Orange County's Restaurant Week doesn't start until February 26th but Newport Beach had its own little restaurant week so we went. I just couldn't say no to that! Because, ya know, I love food...

We went to Chart House and had a blast.
Our server wasn't the happiest (sorry dude, but you are not made for this business, trust me!!) but this could not stop my excitement to eat yummy salmon and try from my friends' dishes, too.

 
First though we had some appetizer that we just had to devour slowly....it was that good. :)


And then the main dish came, and I was so excited I forgot to take a picture of my own dish...the salmon. Just imagine a gigantic piece of fish, on top of a mustard, black pepper sauce (or something like that - I just wanted the sauce in the end it was that delish!), and homemade mashed potatoes (weird combo but it worked so well I freaked out...hence my excitement and the fact that I forgot to take a picture!).



The breaded shrimp with mango salsa and honey-ed beans was just as delicious...and the beef medallions with such an amazing onion sauce...hmmmm, is it weird that my mouth is watering again?!

These pictures aren't the best (I know I suck at taking phone pictures!), but hey, did I mention the food was awesome? And I was excited and hungry, too?! I just had to quickly take a photo and then fill my stomach! 

Oh, and I forgot to take pictures of my friends' lava cake, and my mud pie ice cream! That's how excited I was...really!

Let's hope I make it to Orange County's Restaurant Week and actually take pictures of everything I ate, or shared, or whatnot...
...I'm already excited!!!

And BYE January...you were an okay month!
Just saying!
