Mar. 28th, 2006 @ 12:50 pm Training for Iron Chef
In my attempts to train hard to be successful at pwning nopictures at Iron Editor at Anime Central, I decided that I needed to witness the handiwork of a true Iron Chef. While I could go on in detail about the decor and the setting, I think this photo shows more than I could ever say:



Toro tartare with crispy fried shallots
3 raw oysters served on ice(jalepeno and fish sauce, japanese salsa, champagne sauce)
Thinly sliced live scallops in hot oil
Saffron-orange sorbet as a pallate cleanser
Baby greens salad with seared jackfish
Half a lobster(cut lengthwise) with 8 spice seasoning
Kobe beef served under fois gras accompanied by japanese sweet potatoes
Series of traditional sushi with their exceptional brewed soy sauce and rice
Chocolate cheesecake topped with peppercorn icecream and banana puree on the side



All of us came in with high expectations for the food and the service and yet we were all blown away by the quality of food, ambiance of the restaurant, and the exceptional service from the knowledgable waitstaff. While all of the food was very good, the toro tartare and the kobe beef with fois gras were heavenly. The beverage omakase was We got lucky in that Iron Chef Morimoto was actually present at the Philadelpha location. I even got to shake his hand! But the group of us did get the photo-op:

Sadly all I have only had his ale

kissmary and I have been closest to an Iron Chef when we ate at a Bobby Flay restaurant in Chicago. Though Emeril has 3-4 places in New Orleans. When you come down we can plan to visit one.

Make sure to bring enlargements of mr_mking signing the bill...

this is the most relevant your journal has ever been to me. Good pictures, man, thanks for posting. For the thing your tongue represents, it's spelled, "palate"
