Another Taste of Taste on the Epic!

Because we loved lunch at Taste so much, we decided to go back another night for dinner. The left side of the menu remained the same every night, but the right side changed daily. That same menu was offered at the Manhattan Room. We decided to eat in Taste that night because we were not in the mood to dress up. That's what we love about Norwegian - you are free to do whatever.

For starters, we had the quesadillas stuffed with chihuahua cheese and mushrooms. Chihuahua cheese is a soft, white cheese made from cow's milk. It originated in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. (Our dog Joey's ancestors are from there too!) We have been big fans of chihuahua cheese ever since we tried the Queso Fundido at Rosa Mexicano in West Palm Beach. Ever since then, we look for chihuahua cheese on the menu of every Mexican restaurant we go to. We hadn't found it until we went to Taste, and Taste is not even a Mexican restaurant! We were pleasantly surprised!
Next, we tried the Chicken Skewers with Pineapple Salsa. From the moment we saw it on the menu, we knew we could recreate this at home. The chunky salsa is easy to make: mix chopped, grilled onions and pineapples, teriyaki sauce and cilantro in a bowl. Yum!

Mr. P ordered the Goat Cheese and Pear Salad with Walnuts. He loves goat cheese! The salad's simple vinaigrette dressing was perfect. All of the starters were tasted at Taste were definitely a hit!

Now on to the main course. Mrs. P had been craving pasta all day and was excited to see Cheese Tortellini on the menu. Then she saw Lobster Tail on the menu and felt that she had to make a choice between the two. She told her waitress her dilemma and the waitress gracefully offered to bring out both. Mrs. P happily enjoyed her meal and the excellent service.

Mr. P is a huge lamb fan! He ordered the lamb with leek mashed potatoes and fava beans. The beans were a little undercooked for his taste, but everything else was excellent.


For dessert, we had the Panna Cotta with sugar-free blueberry compote. We loved the panna cotta, but wished the compote wasn't sugar-free. We also tried the chocolate mousse, which was a little too rich for us, but not bad.

  1. Yum Yum! The lobster and the pasta look amazing.. I'm not a fan of goat cheese or lamb but the rest looks great! :) (and this is one of the freebie restaurants) Good point about one side of the menu staying the same and the other side changing daily. Good info!
