Last night deserved another dinner at the Ashmont Grill—first time without masks in a couple of years!
Barbara started with an “appetizer-sized” portion of three delicious barbecued pork belly sliders with mango BBQ glaze, shaved romaine, and pickled onions. Clearly this was an overly generous serving, so I had to perform my duty and help out by eating one of the three. I started with an even more generous serving of fried brussels sprouts with fish sauce, cilantro, mint, and lime. I had to take three quarters of it home. Are you sensing a theme here?
Then the main course. Barbara had her perennial favorite (but only an occasional special) wood-grilled steak tips, grilled medium rare as ordered, with caramelized onions, mashed potatoes, french green beans, two (two, not one!) onion rings, and herbed truffle butter. I went for the spicy fried chicken on a pretzel roll, with hot sauce, cole slaw, pickles, shredded lettuce, and too many french fries; the chicken was remarkably juicy, especially since it was a boneless breast.
A good crowd for a Sunday evening. And excellent service as always.
