Falling in Love @ Burgoo

After watching the Harry Potter Series finally come to its end, my sister and I felt sad. (If you're a Harry Potter fan, you probably felt the same way, too.) We decided to drown our sorrows with what lifts our mood best...FOOD! :))

It was my sister's treat (as usual) so she asked me where I'd like to eat dinner. All that crying over HP 7 must have worked up my appetite. By that time, my stomach didn't really care. It just wants to be fed! We were in the mall so I pointed to the nearest restaurant. It's called Burgoo and it was my first time to eat there.

Huge servings
As we took our seats on a cozy corner, I immediately liked the place. Instead of tablecloths, the tables were lined with white paper where customers could doodle on with crayons which they also provide. It's a creative way for kids and 'kids at heart' like me to pass time until their food arrives.

But we didn't have to wait long for our food to be served, much to my grumbling stomach's delight. First off, we had Mozzarella sticks for appetizers. They were crunchy on the outside, soft and gooey on the inside, plus the tomato dip complimented it well.

For main courses, my Ate had Pork chops with rice and corn and carrots. She made me taste it; It was delicious! I had Seafood Au gratin* which was served as a pasta dish. And my god, it's heavenly! I love it! It had all the clams, mussels, and fish meat going on but you'd be surprised how light it is.
Raspberry Cheesecake 

We had to unbutton our pants to make room for dessert. We had ordered Raspberry Cheesecake and were a bit disappointed that it didn't have actual raspberries. But it turned out to be so good we forgave it. Ate Faye tasted it first. She said, "You have to try this! (As if I needed urging) It will lessen your fullness." She was right. When I took my first bite, I knew it was my first 'real' cheesecake. It was rich, salty, and it was meant to be served with the tangy raspberry sauce so as not to overwhelm you with its 'cheesy-ness'.

We realized that we ordered more than we could chew. The servings in Burgoo are big. (Even for us!) One serving is big enough for two so we still had leftovers to take home. My sister and I went home happily with lighter hearts and more than satisfied palates.
