XXX - Hardcore food

I’ve been in this restaurant once, months ago. In that occasion, I sent you some very explicit pic.
Tonight I’m here with my wife, and I thought about you and about the fact we don’t have a proper “food porn” thread. Yes, we have the strange food thread, but that was intended for STRANGE food… BTW, I should go back on topic and post some strange food there…
We don’t have a place were to share useless and uncalled for pics of shiny and glamorous food.

Ok, here’s my dinner:

Steak tartare with capers sauce, raw egg yolk, and truffle (please, don’t look at the sad plate my wife asked…) with a nice glass of Passerina (dry and fruity still white wine)

Roasted suckling pig with green sauce, mashed pears and friggitelli peppers tempura (my wife took a wild roast chicken with vegetables) with a glass of Tuscan Sangiovese (good wine, but wrong match, shame on me)

Pistachio semifreddo with raspberry (my wife took a Puff pastry with chantilly cream and Valrhona dark chocolate chips), with a glass of Passito di Pantelleria (sweet and fruity wine from dried grapes)

After this good meal, I felt particularly insipired, and I decided it was time to renew my wedding vows…

EDIT: raspberry, not strawberry

First of all: That looks very delicious (and I now get hungry …). :star_struck:

We have the “What’s for dinner” thread:

Wow. Seems I really missed it.

But that is typical dinner. This thread is “hardcore food” for adults … :wink:

Ok, fine, then :wink:

Yum, that all looks really nice!

I had that when I went to Dinner in the Dark, a restaurant in London where you eat in the pitch black, served by blind waiters. You don’t know what you’re getting until it’s served to you - it took me a while to work out what is was when I couldn’t see it!

Yours looks quite different though - what’s the cracked casing on it?

Is that a doughnut?

Looks more like a fried squid ring…

Ah yes! The other exquisite delicacy…

Calamares as they call it in spain.
Calamari as they call it in greece.
Tittenfisch Tintenfisch as we say in germany.

I saw once some famous chefs who were to guess a food tasting it blindfolded… emabrassing mistakes!

The “cracked casing” are truffle slices.

Anyway here a tartare is very creatively served differently in any restaurant… so it could look differently when presented.

While in the fridge it always look as… raw minced meat :sweat_smile:

:joy:
It’s a butter O-shaped butter biscuit. If you zoom in, you can notice the sugar crystals. You can spot it on the right, with some other biscuits, in the previous pic.

I have to disappoint you and destroy your joke(*), but we have “Calamares” too. The German word is Kalmar. :wink: We have also the possiblity to chose from these synonyms:

Tintenfisch, Achtfüßler, Krake, Sepia, Oktopode, Polyp, Calamares, Achtfüßer, Kopffüßer, Zehnarmer, Zephalopode

(*) Yeah! Party pooper to the rescue!

Ah, yes! If I zoom in I can see it. But from the distance it looks similar to a fried squid ring. :slight_smile:

So that is the name of the dish, too then? You like go to your oddly unspecific northern german restraurant and say:“Ich hätte gerne einen Kalmar, yummy yum yum!” ?

I don’t get anything of your german ichthyic humour, but imagining you saying that line makes me laugh.
:grin:

makes that “opening” hand gesture from Shape Of Water

I don’t order “Tintenfisch” too. :wink: In most restaurants the dish is either called “Tintenfischringe” or “Calamares” (we even have the alternative plural “Calamari”). If the cook knows what he is doing, then you can order “Kalmare” too. :slight_smile:

It was a nasty wordplay not suitable for kids. :wink:

This was worth a new soundcloud clip

but this is worth a new youtube clip.

Should I remember you this is the “food porn thread”?
If I didn’t make myself clear, I wrote “hardcore”, “explicit”, and I put a triple-X in the title.
