Smoked Scottish salmon, homemade hollandaise sauce, roasted fingerling potatoes. $15.95

This was yummy. I liked the smoked salmon and the hollandaise sauce was bright and delicious. I think the roasted potatoes were the best part though. Mmm…

This cake was yummy! It was moist and nice and molten in the center. I also liked the two different sauces along with the ice cream and berries.

Whole grain mustard-herb crusted, with gratinee potatoes, green beans, and red wine demi-glace. $38

Where Spencer’s lacked in the appetizer department, they made up for it in the entrees. This rack of lamb was delicious and the portion was ginormous! I loved everything about this dish. Noms!

Lobster potstickers – Spencer’s Restaurant

Lobster potstickers - Spencer's Restaurant
Cilantro soy sauce, chili aioli, and sriracha. Part of Spencer’s Hot Appetizer Sampler $25
Spencer’s Restaurant, Palm Springs CA

These potstickers were rock hard and gross. You could chip a tooth trying to bite these things! And the “cilantro” soy was so salty as a dipping sauce. I’d say this appetizer was a failure.

Hawaiian sugarloaf pineapple and sweet pineapple glaze. Part of Spencer’s Hot Appetizer Sampler $25

These shrimp were over-fried and the crust was really hard and dry. Thank goodness for the pineapple glaze to add some moisture and soften them up a bit.
