[Cupertino] The Red Crane Restaurant

20110416meetup001
四月份的東西聯姻Meetup聚餐在Cupertino的The Red Crane餐廳, 位於7335 Bollinger Rd (與De Anza Blvd交叉, 在Home Depot旁邊), 完全不是我猜的地點, 我以為是另一頭的Bollinger Rd. 餐廳不大, 但乾淨寬敞, 因為他們沒有硬塞很多桌椅, 擺設簡單卻保持愉悅的用餐氣氛, 服務人員熱忱親切, 在點菜上提供許多幫助, 每道菜不但擺盤美麗, 連味道上也感覺的出主廚的創意和用心.

菜單上分為Salads, Starters, Raw Plates, Small Plates, and Sides, 每道菜下面都貼心的幫你配好合適的Cold Sake.

Wasabi Caesar Salad – 讓原本很平常的凱薩沙拉添加一點驚喜, 我以後也要在自製的凱薩沙拉醬裡加一點Wasabi, 舌根後面有點辣的感覺很好.

看到這裡你應該有發現這家餐廳菜的份量不多, 所以不適合吃粗飽的人, 如果你喜歡少量多樣的吃法, 你可以試試這家餐廳. 其實別看我們好像點了不少菜, 實際上菜單上還有一些沒點到的, 就我點到的菜來說, 我覺得非常棒的是Salmon Tartare, Char Siu Marinated Alaskan Black Cod, Shaking Beef (我老公喜歡Coffee Glazed Ribs, 但我覺得味道太重), Panna Cotta; 下次還會再點的還包括Wasabi Caesar Salad, Crispy Crab Bites, Rainbow Chirashi, Mushroom Pizza, Crispy Unagi Chirashi. 炒麵覺得太鹹; 茄子不錯, 但是別家中餐館也吃得到; Calamari很新鮮, 但別的餐廳也有賣.

我們這頓14人吃下來不少錢, 因為大家還有點啤酒和Sake, 但也只有和一大票人一起吃飯的時候, 才有機會嚐到那麼多道菜的機會. 如果你有特別日子要慶祝, 是蠻推薦你來試試看.
