This dish was boring and really was just an attempt to try to eat something healthy during our trip. They just used the usual vegetables and the sauce was basic.
San Augustin Church, Intramuros.

Alamo Square Seafood Grill, San Francisco CA
I enjoyed the trout. It was a small, thin piece with not a lot of meat but it tasted good and was prepared well. I wasn’t a fan of the green peppercorn sauce though. The color was off-putting and I didn’t think that the sour taste did anything to elevate the trout.
Chateau Moulin de l’Esperance, bordeaux, 2009. Half off bottle $18.50
Catch of the day (broadbrill swordfish) with vegetable tempura, black bean and corn salsa, queso fresco (?).
Roy’s, Waikoloa HI
This was a pretty thick cut of swordfish, yeah! I appreciated their straighforward preparation and clean plating.

Sorry for the horrible pic, but it really didn’t taste that great anyway. 😦
