A lot of restaurants seem to be advertising their 500-calorie meals or the weight watchers specials but sometimes, you just need serious comfort food. Tavern On the Square is one of my regular comfort food places, and Phantom Gourmet agrees!
#1 Risotto Fritters
Parmesan risotto stuffed with pesto and mozzarella lightly breaded and fried. Served with tomato cream sauce and baby arugula.
The risotto is nutty with the perfect amount of pesto. The arugula is peppery and added a nice contrast to the salty parmesan.
#2 White Truffle Tator Tots
A heaping portion of our tator tots drizzled with aromatic white truffle oil and Parmesan cheese.
The tator tots are truly a heaping portion. I think the truffle oil is a bit lacking and I’d prefer a better ratio but I wouldn’t pass on these…they’re just too addicting.
#3 Tropical Chicken Skewers
Chicken tenders coated in shredded coconut and panko breadcrumbs, fried to a golden brown and served with a pineapple curry sauce and fruit salsa.
I was pleasantly surprised by these. The coconut was perfect and a great sweetness with the zip of the sauce.
These apps are really fun and make a meal to share.
