I do not feel the over powering urge to do a review but when I do it’s a special one.
Today we remember and honor our Mother. My mother is missed terribly. I wish I could call her. Only she had the answers I needed. No more direct info~answers from that beautiful woman. Then again, she is always with me and each time I look in the mirror I see her; so this is a good thing. She is never far away.
My daughter took me out for the day. Not just one ,but three awesome journey’s.
First we went to the local Marriott pool and hot tub. The drinks and water were perfect. The iguana’s were sunning in the palms and all was serene in my world.
We came home changed clothes and were off to the movies.”The Great Gatsby” It was a beautiful, but bittersweet love story.
(Daisy is not a very likeable girl in my opinion)
Last stop, TGIF. No crowd. Perfect service and the food was seasoned and prepared to perfection. Kudu’s to the chef’s.
We had the Thai Pork Taco’s and Seared Tuna for appetizers.
~Thai Pork Tacos
Three soft corn tortillas with Thai marinated pulled pork, Sriracha aioli, ginger-lime slaw and hoisin sauce.
The Taco’s were moist, very spicy and delicious.
Ahi Tuna Crisps
Three blackened Ahi tuna slices on tortilla chips with house-made guacamole, jalapeños, Sriracha sauce and Avocado Vinaigrette drizzled with Cucumber-Wasabi Ranch.
For dinner I had the Grilled Salmon with Langostino Lobster
Norwegian salmon fillet fire-grilled and topped with a sauté of langostino lobster and cremini mushrooms in a zesty roasted Alfredo sauce. Served with your choice of two sides.
That too, was moist and flaky. Perfectly cooked.
The other dinner was Jack Daniel’s® Black Angus Sirloin* & Shrimp
10-ounce Black Angus sirloin fire-grilled and basted with Jack Daniel’s® sauce, paired with crispy Cajun-spiced shrimp. Served with your choice of two sides.
We had as sides~ Fridays House Salad ,Romaine, red cabbage, grape tomato, cucumber, mixed cheese and focaccia croutons with choice of dressing and a hot garlic breadstick.
The bread stick was not noticeably missing, sweet potato fries, loaded baked, mashed potatoes and Broccoli.
It felt like I was dining in a palace. Everyone was attentive and friendly. We met the manager KC, he was very personable and gracious.Several of the other servers came too our table to inquire of us.
66-48…just an observance pleasant too mine eye
Our server was Dale.
That made us chuckle as we have an ongoing relationship with the terminology of DALE. Actually Dale’ in Spanish means “Speed up” Or “Hurry up!”
The dinner was perfectly timed.
We did notice one thing. We could hear everything. The music system was down and everyone’s conversation could be heard as we dined. That was interesting.
Oh and my Ultimate Long island Iced Tea created by Dale was superb. Smirnoff Vodka, Bacardi Rum, Bombay Gin, triple sec, brandy, Fridays original sweet & sour, Coke and fresh lemon
Our take home dessert~Tennessee Whiskey Cake~A warm toffee cake topped with glazed pecans and vanilla ice cream. Served with butterscotch Jack Daniel’s® Whiskey sauce.
Really, I can not make one complaint if I tried.
There is something to be said for dining in a slow paced atmosphere. We were not overwhelmed with everything at once, and that I believe is what made the experience so enjoyable.
It was that great!!!
