BBQ and Sushi


During our stay in the US we enjoyed some really good food for dinner..... I want to pick out two things: BBQ at Famous Dave's and Suhsi at Hibachi (I didn't make any pix at this fantastic steak house...).

Famous Dave's (we'd been in the restaurant in Delaware) is a paradise for everybody who loves meat, so it was the perfect place for us...

You come in and you know what it is about. BBQ, meat, pigs, chicken, ribs... did I forget anything?








We visited it twice. First time we took the Feast for two, a combo which gave you a good impression of the food they have here: Spare ribs, grilled chicken, fried beans, coleslaw, pulled pork and corn muffin. The meat was perfect, prepared to the point in the smoker.... and surpisingly the corn muffin was something that I really liked.... Never had it before, but I'll have it again for sure...



At the second visit we both concentrated on what we liked the best from the feast... Tanja took a portion of the pulled pork, I stuck to the spare ribs....

What I shouldn't forget are the different sauces that they offer.... 5 different styles:
  • Rich and Sassy
  • Sweet and Zesty
  • Georgia Mustard
  • Texas Pit
  • Devil Spit
They're all not bad, but the last two ones - having hints of spiceness - had been my favorites....

Dave won several prices with his BBQ'd meat and also his sauces.... some of the trophies can be seen in the entrance area of the restaurant....



Another evening, another restaurant. This time Hibachi Japanese Steakhouse in Downingtown.

I like Sushi... and I like big portions.... but Rob did forget to tell us a little detail: the Sushi roll you order, is a ROLL and not only two pieces of the roll as we are used to get over here at the places. Tanja and I made our first order and we wondered a bit about the big plate we got....



But we managed it.... and there was enough place left for some more culinary highlights.

I LOVED the Red Dragon Roll... looks a bit unusual with the sauce on top, but it was really delicious....



This opulent meal was a perfect basis for the cigars which followed it.... but that's another story....
