Segovia-Part 2

June4

I should taken notes or asked to take a copy of the menu -what kind of foodie blogger am I?  My head was spinning with the whirlwind of food that started arriving at our table and was soon divided up and devoured.  A couple of these items are referenced on the Segovia website so I know that I have gotten them right but for the details that I am just trying to pull from memory…forgive me please.

This was one of their specials-braised beef tongue served over succulent baby peas.  I was going to pass and let the guys enjoy this one on their own.  Good thing I got brave or I would have missed out on the most amazing dish.

I truly don’t remember what this was but it had a poached egg on top and was smooth, creamy and delectable.

This dish was part bruschetta/part salad and totally delicious.  I recall fresh basil, grilled tomatoes and crispy pancetta.

We had two orders of these…even without the enhancing drizzles, they might have been the best “french fry” I have ever tasted, rivalled only by the papas frites at La Lomita on Isla Mujeres.

We had two orders of these too….we call them croquettes and Sister #2 is a master maker of them, having been taught be her Italian mother-in-law.  The bechamel was rich and substantial and the creamy/salty/crunchy combination so much fun.

Salt and pepper squid with apple saffron aioli-a curious taste twist on calamari, highly successful.

Seared scallops atop of cauliflower puree.  Scallops may be my favourite shellfish especially when they are expertly seared as these were, leaving the inside moist, firm and bursting with flavour.

We thought that we should start winding down with this platter arrived brimming with cured and smoked meats.  Duck, tongue, salami, ham-each taste made unique by the substance, heartiness, spice and length of cure.

This  was the bread grilled and brushed with olive oil that accompanied the platter.  I could have been happy with just the bread and a little sea salt!
