Saturday Night at Hibiscus

Since we were going to be alone for dinner (for the first time in a while), we decided to make it a special night and go to Pops new favorite restaurant Hibiscus

Diego was our waiter. He was funny and not stuffy and waiters at these restaurants sometimes are. We started out with an appetizer of "Baked Dungeness Crab Dip with Wood Oven Fried Crackers. This was my favorite part of the meal. The dip was full of crabmeat. You can eat the homemade crackers by themselves. They are so good. For anyone who has been to New York, it reminds me of the flatbread served there.

Next we had salads. I had a dinner salad with ranch and Pops had the Caesar. Of course, I tasted his. It was very good. Next time I will order the Caesar. For our entree, I had the "Crispy Cracklin' Shrimp" and he had the "Three Pepper Crusted Prime Ribeye." The shrimp were huge. Pops said that his steak was one of the best he has ever had. We had "Pt. Reyes Bleu Cheese Glazed Spuds" and "Bourbon Creamed Corn." Pops loved the potatoes. I thought they were very good, but you need to love bleu cheese because it is very strong. The corn was sweet and had a good flavor.
Those of you who know me well, know I love anything that is sweet.

We finished the meal off with the special dessert of the day, Peach Cobbler with Lavender Vanilla Ice Cream. It was served straight from the oven. The ice cream had an interesting flavor, but it was delicious. I would definitely order it again.

Writing this is making me hungry!! I am ready to decide where we will eat tonight.
