Resto: Belgian Food Adventure

Resto
I stopped by Resto this weekend to enjoy some Belgian food.  So I must admit I didn't include Belgian beer or chocolates as part of this food adventure, however I look forward to going back to Resto and tasting these and some of their other unique dishes.  This food adventure was a rather short and sweet one, I snuck it in between some holiday shopping.
Chicken 'n Waffles
I started my dinner with Chicken n'Waffles.  The chicken was covered in a sweet chilly sauce (a little sweet, a little spicy).  The chicken was so tender it fell right off the bone, but the skin was nice and crispy.   The waffles had pieces of bacon in it, these were delicious!!!! It was like finding a little surprise every time I took a bite of the waffles and found the crispy bacon.  I was so into the food, I totally forgot about the peppercorn gravy.  This will definitely be one of those dishes I'll randomly think about.
Salted Caramel Pot d'Creme
For dessert, I had the Salted Caramel Pot d'Creme.  This is a light baked custard, topped with Apricot jam and creme fraiche.  This couldn't have been a more perfect dessert.  The creamy custard, with the very sweet apricot jam and the velvety creme fraiche was a perfect combination!  I ate every bite in the ramekin.

What a great food adventure.  It was an unplanned food adventure, but one I look forward to repeating this one real soon.  Hope you get to enjoy some good food this holiday season!  Until next time, Buen Provecho!
