OK, I failed to report in a timely fashion, but I actually went out and did this on Friday.  Since I don't eat seafood, my options are often insanely limiting.  Also, as predicted, I didn't even eat my meal because I was full :(

Since I went for a really late dinner, I went for a chain (Grand Lux Cafe) and had Double Stuffed Potato Spring Rolls (basically like mashed potatoes in spring roll wrappers with cheese and green onion and bacon...pretty PJC-like).  Very yummy.  Make sure you get extra green onion because it makes the dish.

This is wrong.

I had a beef carpaccio with horseradish cream and greens a few weeks ago. Two thumbs up!

I once had a springbok carpaccio.  It was probably the single best thing I've ever eaten.

Springbok is amazing.

Way to kill my national animal, a-hole.   >:(

(Although springbok remains delicious.  Makes great biltong, too!)

The potato skins were more like french fries...  All the stuff to dip them and eat them with were amazing.

I had goat cheese fondue the other night.  I am a total cheese fan and basically love almost any kind.  However, I was a little disappointed.  Not very flavorful at all.  It was OK with the bread and kinda bland with the apples.  I'd rather get a cheese plate instead.

I made an omelet today and put cheese on it. Sharp cheddar. Also, had a few bagels with cream cheese.
