KM and I were closing in on our one year anniversary. My in-laws gave us a gift card last year to The Mundo Grill when they were just my soon to be wife’s parents.
KM made a 6:30 reservation for Saturday night. We were sat promptly upon our arrival. The restaurant was ¾ full. A $75 gift card did not allow for a bottle of wine, which was good because KM is not really a wine drinker….. but neither am I. More like when in Rome… if Rome happened to have a view of the Citgo gas station across the street. I had a glass of the 2005 Little Penguin Pinot Noir. I don’t know wine at all but it was very nice. Full of flavor w/o being overpowering to my taste buds.
Our waitress was just a bit too casual for me, but so what. It made for a relaxing evening, even if her descriptions of the specials and desert menu was not a thesaurus of mouthwatering adjectives.
KM ordered the Crispy Duck, and I choose the Butcher’s Choices which was a flat iron steak over mashed potatoes. Now The Mundo Grill is a seafood place. Next time we will definitely go for their seafood. I have a bit of phobia concern seafood, but I should break myself of that.
The food was very good. Although my steak arrived to me only warm. The pitfalls of a flat iron steak served sliced. There are clearly better places for steak, as I said this is a seafood place.
Desert was a mini-apple pie that resembled a pot pie for KM. I had the molten chocolate cake, which was tiny. Delicious, but tiny. I wanted more, probably a good idea it was as small as it was.
