So, I've heard from my share of Bobby Flay haters saying that he's an over-hyped celebrity chef, but I don't care. I went to Mesa Grill last night and had an incredible meal and I'd recommend the place to anyone. Forget the haters, here's my lowdown of the meal.
The complimentary bread was actually mad good, especially this spicy, jalepeno corn muffin type thing.
As an entree, I order the New Mexican Spice Rubbed Pork Tenderloin which was amazing!! It was so juicy, and succulent and flavorful, it really was a tender loin, it was the best piece of pork I ever had. Very spicy too, which I like, marinated in what I believe was a Bourbon Ancho-Chili Sauce. It came with a sweet potato tamale which was amazing. It tasted like ultra sweet corn bread, with corn kernels in it, and had crushed pecan butter. Amazing, I couldn't get enough.
For dessert, we shared this spicy chocolate ice cream sandwich with caramel and this spicy, hot fudge sauce with an orange kick. Very flavorful, the chocolate ice cream was quite rich as well. However, I wished the cookie part of the ice cream sandwich had been richer and thicker, but it was very good nonetheless. The waiter was very friendly and recommended this dessert to us.
Overall, great meal and I can't wait to go back.
