Ok so Chemda took me to the VERY fancy Russian Tea Room for my birthday. Half the menu was on this list. AND-just for my listeners (and my own curiosity) I ordered mousse with 24-karat gold flakes and caviar. It was...I'm trying to find a reason why it makes sense. I can't. I just can't. Chemda was right when the waiter asked her how it tastes and she replied, "It tastes like rude human beings."
Chocolate+Fish eggs+Metallic chemical element = FANCYYYYYY
It was sweet, a little salty and of course a little fishy.
The restaurant also had a few other items we talked about on this list: fois gras, veal...I only wish I included 24-karat gold!
Our dinners were incredible. The atmosphere was wonderful and gaudy and hilariously Russian. I was so excited to be there and it was such a fun surprise. We had a great time!
