Last week was our 3rd anniversary, and we went back to the place where it all started for us, the Queen Mary. We were married on board, and have made it a point to go back every year for our anniversary. We had dinner at Sir Winston’s and I love their food. I have to say, their Wellington can’t be beat.
We started off with appetizers: Queenies (sea scallops wrapped with Apple Smoked Bacon, drizzled with parsley butter)
*Also, can I tell you how much I love micro greens? Not for just the pretty factor, but to eat?
As you can see, we decimated the plate before we could take a proper picture of it. They were delicious, but I would have preferred that they stuck with the Champagne Scallops as an appetizer. The flavor was more delicate and sophisticated than the Queenies. Sayin!
We both ordered Beef Wellingtons, because really…How often does one get to eat a Wellington? I mean, unless Trader Joe’s has a frozen Wellington all ready to be heated up and eaten, the chances are slim.
The Beef Wellingtons were cooked to perfection, and the truffle sauce was a perfect compliment. The truffle mashed potatoes were boring. There was nothing that stood out for me, and they almost reminded me of the boxed mashed potatoes. I can probably out-do them with my mad mashed potato skillz any day.
Last but not least, dessert. I was tempted to order the Baked Alaska because I am a huge fan of Baked Alaska. It’s one of the many reasons I go on cruises, Baked Alaska night. I decided not to go with the Baked Alaska, because I’m on a diet, and will have to wear a bathing suit in less than a month, so I just ordered a cappucino instead.
But lo and behold, the staff came to our table with an anniversary dessert (not Baked Alaska). It was quite the magnificent and tasty and sugary Creme Brulee (almost as good as a Baked Alaska).
We had a great time at Sir Winstons and hope that we can come back again next year.
