GREAT DINNER!

I had a great dinner at Mombo! My reservation was originally later in the evening, but my early evening plans changed. When I called to see if they could squeeze us in earlier they said they could seat us right away. Great!

In the online reservation I made a note that my husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. Most restaurants seem to ignore those things, but both the hostess and our waiter wished us happy anniversary right away. And they wrote happy anniversary on our dessert plate in chocolate, which was also nice.

We shared the lobster flatbread as an appetizer. It was so good I would have happily eaten it as my entree. The flatbread had a great chew to it, and the sauce drizzled on top was delicious.

For entrees, I had the rainbow trout en papillote on our waiter’s recommendation. The fish was perfectly flaky and came in a delicious, buttery lemon aioli. My husband got the huge bone-in pork chop. The seasoning and sauce were fantastic, and I snuck several bites of the corn and bacon succotash.

For dessert, we chose the Italian rum cake creme brûlée because it seemed like the most unique option on the menu. It was basically a little Neapolitan cake with a layer of dense chocolate cream, rum cake, and strawberry coulie on top of a creme brûlée. It. Was. Outstanding.

We had a lovely evening at Mombo, and will definitely come back.
