Few weeks ago, Andrew brought me to Glowbal by Glowbal to try out the upcoming featured Platter Dinner for two. From April 24 to 30, customers can enjoy a dinner for two, valued at $198, for only $98. I think it is such an awesome value, especially if you need a dinner plan for any special occasions. Sitting at the heated patio, while enjoying a glass of red wine and a delectable meal, with awesome accompany is the best way to spend your evenings.
The Platter Dinner comes with two glasses of House Red or House White, accompanied with Amuse Bouche. The dinner then starts with a Caesar Salad as an appetizer. It is not too saucy, and my favourite part is the house made croutons. The crunchy and flavorful croutons are an excellent add-on to a simple salad.
For the entree, it serves in a platter form, with 16oz Carved Rib Eye Steak, Shrimp Gnocchi with Pesto Cream, 1/4lb Snow Crab, and Seared Tuna. The platter serves with two sides, Brussels Sprouts and Buttermilk Mashed Potato. The gnocchi is very addicting, because it is pillowy and light with the pesto cream.
The rib eye steak is my second favorite; though it might be slightly overcooked, the seasoning is on point. Medium rare would be perfect for a steak like this!
Snow crab and seared tuna is not as flavorful, compared to the other two entrees. I think it is a good balance, so you won’t be overwhelmed with saltiness throughout the dinner. However, I do wish the seared tuna is more “seared”, with a tiny bit more of seasoning (maybe a pinch of salt?).
How can I end the meal without a dessert? In this dinner set, customers can try a variety of desserts with the Chef’s Selection of Petit Fours. In our Petit Fours, the chef made an edible cherry blossom tree with cotton candy. Simple, but fun to eat and take pictures with!
I think this dinner for two is an awesome value, and I really enjoyed it. The portion is huge; Andrew left with most of the steak! So if you are looking for a reasonably priced at a classy and elegant restaurant from April 24 to 30, I would highly recommend this dinner set. I promise you two will be satisfied and leave with a full stomach!
