This was pretty good. I liked the salmon and it was nice and thick. The latke was good too but it was definitely on the greasy side.

Smoked salmon plate – Escena Lounge & Grill

Smoked salmon plate - Escena Lounge & Grill
Cream cheese, tomato, red onions, capers, bagel. $14
Escena Lounge & Grill, Palm Springs CA

There was a lot of salmon on this plate. I couldn’t eat most of it. I wish the bagel was better though. It was really poor quality.

Smoked salmon rolls – Vino Volo

Braised veal cheeks - Jasper's Corner Tap and Kitchen
Smoked salmon served with succulent crabmeat and crispy crostini. $11
Vino Volo, Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD)

This were such a disappointment. The crostini were so small, dry, and crumbly that they had to chance to stand against any toppings. Also, the mixed crab spread was mush and disgusting as was the old smoked salmon.

I love getting the trio (or quarto) at Fresca because you get to try a variety of their ceviches and the price is great. This time around, I really liked the mixto. It’s the most traditional one, but I really just liked the flavors. I was surprised by the ceviche passion with it’s passion fruit dressing. It tasted pretty good!

Plantain chips - Fresca
Plantain chips. $5
I think it’s kinda lame that you have to pay for plantain chips. They should just give you less and make it complimentary.
