Our date night at Girl and the Goat was really fun! Like I mentioned yesterday, I made these reservations three months ago so I was really excited that they were actually HERE! We normally eat dinner around 7:45/8:00 so eating at 4:45 basically felt like lunch. I was so excited the waiter kept chuckling at me and looking at PartyDog with a face that said ‘is this girl for real?” Back off man, I get excited about food.
We started out with some drinks of course, I got a Malbec that was delicious and PartyDog got some beer I’m too bored to remember. One of the chefs in the back gets to the restaurant early each morning to make the featured breads for the day. I wanted to order all three since I all I ever want to eat is fresh bread but Max insisted we just get one. We went with one that was served with some raspberry honey and some kind of peanut-butter dip that was so good I finished it with my spoon. Get ready for some craptastic cell-phone pictures.
Then came out some fish dish we got with pork belly on top. I honestly only wanted this because I saw the word pork in it and I’m a sucker for that stuff. This wasn’t that great. PartyDog didn’t like it at all. I of course ate the entire thing. I realize the picture makes it look like I just threw up on a plate and decided to post it for you to see but I promise that is in fact not my vomit but some fancy fish.
Then came out a dish so good I was not capable of talking while I ate it: chickpea fritters. People, this was really good. I almost stole PartyDog’s portion off his plate it was so good. It was so creamy and silky and everything I imagined it to be. I was really sad when I realized the bowl was empty.
Next came out the green beans. Gingerfoxxx demanded we get these and because I’m scared of any redhead that owns a machete, I did as I was told (wouldn’t you?). These were seriously good too. Trust me when I say I ate 98% of these before PartyDog even had four. I’m a delight to have as a girlfriend.
The last dish that came out were the goat empanadas. I have never had goat and I don’t normally eat much meat but I figured since the word goat was in the title of the restaurant we had to get some.
These were just OK. I don’t think PartyDog and I are big goat meat people. At least we tried it once!
So overall this was a really fun place to go to on a date! I doubt we would ever go back, it was pretty expensive for what we got but it is definitely worth going once. Maybe if you go your photography skills will actually make the food look better than human vomit and actually entice people to go…
That’s all the nonsense I have for now!
Tell me your favorite dish you’ve had lately!
