Hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful weather this weekend! Since it was so nice, Friday seemed the perfect night for patio time at Momocho. I had three of my favorite Momocho menu items: the spicy mango margarita, the corn and crab guacamole, and the duck taquitos with pomegranate barbacoa. Delicious!
While we were sipping and dipping, my friend Chrissy asked me if I would be a bridesmaid in her wedding in June 2013. I was so honored and of course immediately accepted! I also had to tell Chrissy that Momocho has a history with me and bridesmaids…my friend Beth asked me to be one of her Maids of Honor there and I asked Beth to be one of my bridesmaids at Momocho as well. Maybe it’s something they put in the margaritas?!
On Sunday, it was time to celebrate Mom. The whole family went out to dinner at Salmon Dave’s. The restaurant is known for its fresh seafood and fish. We started with sharing the seared ahi tuna appetizer and the calamari appetizer.
Many of the dishes at Salmon Dave’s have an Asian influence. The seared ahi tuna is served with seaweed salad and spicy sticky rice. The calamari came with a delicious Thai peanut sauce.
For our entrees, there was no question what Mom and I wanted: the king crab legs special.
I selected the lobster mashers and steamed asparagus as my sides. I love when seafood is so fresh and tasty that it can just stand on its own and these crab legs certainly did. They were sweet and tender and completely delicious. Everyone else seemed happy with their choices as well, from Maine lobster tail to diver scallops to Alaskan king salmon. For straight-up good, fresh seafood and fish, Salmon Dave’s is a win.
Most importantly, though, we had a wonderful time as a family honoring a very special lady. Cheers, Mom!
