My friend Snowy had been in China and Tawain for the past three weeks and she got home this weekend so I jumped at the chance to go out to dinner with her and catch up! We picked Uncorked because of it's proximity and every time we walk by there on our way to TJ Maxx, I always mention we should go there, and on Monday night, we did!
I picked out the Flirtini, after asking the server if the drink was very strong. It was a Monday night and I didn't want to overdo it! And as I drank about a third of the drink, Snowy found out what a lightweight I was! In my defense, I hadn't eaten anything since lunch. That's all I got... It was really good, I could barely taste the alcohol at all, but I don't know if I would order it again.
Snowy choose a Pinot Noir. She gave me a good tip too- they are usually the cheapest and the tastiest! And she was right! It was really good! And I'm not wine connoisseur or anything, but it was really nice!
Snowy said she liked cheese and wanted to get some, so I said we should get some charcuterie too, but we ended up getting the Chef Selection because it was a better deal! We asked if we could pick out the cheeses because Snowy didn't like goat cheese and neither of us like blue cheese, and the server was happy to ask the chef, and he complied. We picked out the Brie, the Tete de Moine, and the charcuterie that came with the platter was the Prosciutto and Calabrese Salami. The Pate was alright, the grapes were so good! I forgot how good grapes are! And the green apple slices are perfect with the brie! They cut into the richness so well!
Next was the Toasted Pita with Hummus! Man I could eat just three of these! This was so good and it smelled so good! I was really happy with this!
Next came the Chorizo Al Vino Tinto. These were so good but they were so salty, and I LOVE salty things! I like things that taste like they've been dipped in the ocean, so I really love salty foods! Sadly, I could only eat a few sadly, but we didn't send it back or anything.
Lastly we ordered the Grilled Saffron Shrimp. This was really good! I really loved it and could have ordered just this and hummus and I would have been so happy! My only complaint was there wasn't more shrimp to eat!
I really loved most everything! And sadly, I do not have a picture of the table when we finished eating because they cleared all the small plates as we were done. It was a great experience and I can't wait to go back there again!
