Last week I had the pleasure of dining at Creo Restaurant in Albany NY.
The food was so amazing that I had to share with you all!
Here’s what we had:
We started off with Scallop Ceviche, a citrus marinated sea scallop with cucumber, cilantro and chili oil with a side of mashed potatoes.
This was light, airy and extremely flavorful. This might have been the best scallop I’ve ever had!
Next, we had a Beet Salad with beets, arugula, goat cheese, candied walnuts, tossed in a white balsamic vinaigrette and topped with spiced crispy onions.
I was actually surprised how delicious this was! The beets gave it just enough sweet flavor and the spiced onions gave it that perfect crunch that I like.
For our third course, we had a Thai noodle dish that consisted of sautÃ©ed shrimp, baby bok choy, carrots, daikon, cilantro and yaki soba noodles in Tom Yum broth served in spicy coconut red curry.
As an avid Thai food lover, I have to say, this was outstanding. It hit all four of the Thai taste senses (sweet, sour, salty and bitter) just perfectly.
Our main course was a pistachio encrusted sliced pork tenderloin over parsnip puree and cranberry-apple chutney. Yup. This pretty much melted in my mouth!
Last but not least, our dessert was a bread pudding du jour topped with homemade vanilla ice cream. This was light and tasty, a great ending to a wonderful 5 course meal!
At the end of the meal, I got a quick shot with our server and Executive Chef David Gibson!
So how did Creo Restaurant rate overall?
All in all, I have to give Creo Restaurant 5 gourmet hats out of 5! I will definitely be going back again. The atmosphere was inviting, the food was out of this world, the service was impeccable and the staff were so friendly!
