It's not often that I my wife and I are completely impressed with all aspects of a dining experience. This happened at Tommy Toy's Cuisine Chinoise in San Francisco. There recently for a birthday celebration dinner for my wife's uncle, who turned 84, we've been raving about it ever since.
My wife's uncle chose his favorite restaurant and not having been to the restaurant before, we followed his lead and joined in having Tommy Toy's Signature Dinner.
Now, where do I start? First, we began with an appetizer and then embarked on a culinary adventure in the six-course, famous Tommy Toy's Signature Dinner. An extravaganza of excellent food, all were well prepared and expertly presented and served.
My wife's uncle is a well-known patron here which was a benefit to all of us as we were served a complimentary appetizer of deep-fried won tons filled with crab mousse served with plum sauce.
The first course of the Signature Dinner was squab and pine nuts wrapped in iceberg lettuce leaves. Delicious and crisp. This was followed by their Seafood Bisque soup served in an open coconut shell, oven-baked and covered with a flaky pastry. Simply marvelous! Then came a fresh whole Maine Lobster! This was served on a platter with a small amount of mixed greens with a vinaigrette dressing. The lobster was chopped and cooked with red and green pepper and served over a bed of delicious vermicelli noodles. Our next course was Medallions of Filet Mignon. This was served over fried rice with asparagus spears. Whole Peking Duck was presented to the table and then carved table side and served with lotus buns.
Our dessert, complimented the various flavors, textures and tastes, a Peach Mousse served in a strawberry sauce was light, cool and refreshing.
One of our guests chose two very nice wines to accompany our meal. One, a Bordeaux and the other, a Riesling, slightly sweet. Both were well-paired and enjoyed with the Signature Dinner.
Wow, if you ever get a chance to experience a fusion of Chinese and French cuisines, consider Tommy Toy's in The City!
