Mother’s Day Dinner

My husband and I had an early dinner last night in the Mise Restaurant to celebrate Mother’s day ahead of the crowd. The dinner is a treat from our daughter in Hong Kong.

Mise offered two groups of dishes, First and Second in their menu. They also had a special offer of creating a three-course meal from any three dishes in the First group. So we ordered six dishes and one dessert to share.

Below is the menu we created last night.

Seven-course Tasting Menu

Shaved Fennel and Orange Salad with Red Wine Vinaigrette and Crisp Romaine

Crispy Fried Flour Dusted Calamari with Lemon, Red Onion, Parsley and Tzatziki
