…….but first…..Cirque du Soleil’s ‘Totem’ in Santa Monica.
Hi Clara….you’re so cute!
So much fun!!!
I might as well tell you right off that the rest of this blog is all about food. Clara, my #1 foodie friend and I sort of get dreamy eyed and rhapsodize over a great meal and boy did we ever have one. We had parked at ‘Shutters on the Beach’ so it was great fun walking to Totem and back to Shutters for dinner. So many interesting sights along the way and at night it was fun to see the Ferris wheel all lit up.
And this couple was amazing!
Back at Shutters on the Beach
For foodies only…..Our seasonal market dinner.
Roasted Beets with capers, heirloom apples, Burrata (this was heavenly) and organic watercress.
Grilled Octopus & Pork Belly. I confess, I’d never had octopus….I know, it taste like chicken. No it doesn’t, this was sublime….served with a raw artichoke salad, arugula & black garlic.
Oooooohhhhhh sooooooooooooo goooood!
Grilled Mediterranean Sea Bass with glazed market carrots, Harissa & asian pears.
Clara told them it was my birthday (not) and so a candle arrived with the most over the top desert.
Wait for it……
Wait for it……
Wait for it….
A salted Caramel Sundae with candy popcorn, chocolate brownie pieces and caramel ice cream. Well worth the wait!
Thank you Clara for picking such a perfect place and wonderful day!
