pumpkin-cheddar bread pudding
braised kale, caramelized onion, toasted walnut sauce
I am not a vegetarian, but I often order the vegetarian entree when I eat out. Why? I don't cook vegetarian at home. If I had a chef at home who would prepare AWESOME vegetarian entrees like this bread pudding, I would give up meat today! This entree was flavorful and had great texture. There were chunks of pumpkin in the bread pudding, which were slightly al dente, so you could really get the taste of pumpkin. Also, the addition of the braised kale was perfect. I'll either have to learn to make this at home, or keep going back to Palace Kitchen for more!!! So delicious.
wood roasted bershire pork loin
creamy grits, collard greens, quince jam
This was my husband's entree. I did not have a taste, however, he did offer a bite. I was told the pork was very juicy and the collard greens, not his favorite, was good. I did sneak a taste of the grits, very creamy, just enough salt and pretty good.
palace burger royale
wood grilled oregon country beef with nearly traditional accompaniments and fries
If you haven't guested, my 17 year old son ordered the BURGER. I wasn't offered a bite, so I don't know how the burger tasted, however, I stole a few fries and the tart aioli...perfectly crunchy on the outside and YUM. All the usual "accompaniments" were included, the only surprise was the pickled green tomato, very good. He devoured every bite.
valrhona chocolate pudding
This is the reason why I love Tom Douglas...dalia triple coconut cream pie!!! I use to work next door to Etta's, another Tom Douglas eateries, and I would skip lunch and go straight to this beautiful, sweet, perfect little beauty. Worth EVERY BITE. YUM!
