For my work holiday party, we went to Westside Tavern at the Westside Pavillion Mall. I’ve always seen it, but because the outside was covered (and not windows, like normal restaurants), I never realized what a hidden gem this place really was! The place inside is incredibly modern and chic; The wait staff and friendly and attentive; and the food was phenomenal. I didn’t get to try more than the dishes I ordered~ but it was a great experience and I’m excited to try it again.
Now…on to the food!
Hamburger with arugula and cheddar cheese and Chili on the side
–MELTED in my mouth. I literally inhaled the burger so fast. The bun was soft and buttery and the meat was juicy and tender.
Half Dozen Oysters on the Half Shell Fresh Horseradish Cocktail Sauce | Champagne Mignonette
Cinnamon Sugar Donuts Creme Anglaise | Chocolate Ganache
–I literally had a food orgasm in my mouth with these. Because the donuts were round balls of fluffiness, it was easy to dip into the chocolate and cream sauces. I could eat a hundred of these all day and everyday. DEFINITELY order these!!
Warm Sticky Toffee Cake Mascarpone Cream
–this was aiiite. the first couple bites were yummy but it became overwhelmingly sweet.
