A very nice dinner at Plum in honor of J&A's birthdays. We tried most of the menu and were impressed. Starting with the snacks, I liked the crunchy texture of the "chicharrones" a nice way to start the meal though it could've used some acid or other seasoning, though I couldn't stop eating them for the enjoyable crunch. Among the vegetable based dishes, the potatoes with lardo and arugula was the standout, the lardo very thin and just melted away on top of the potatoes. I also loved the burger which was a loosely formed patty made of short rib type beef caramelized on the surface and a soft texture as I bit into it -- deep beef flavor from the meat and the caramelized beef exterior. A smear of slightly tangy and peppery horseradish mayo brought the whole thing together. I knew I'd be back for this one.
Stopped by for lunch on the way back from Fremont. Burger good as I remembered. Mac n Cheese fries mostly noodle, not much cheese flavor. Other items look promising.
