Siri's Thai French vs La Campagne

Bashful3 | Jun 13, 2006 09:16 PM

Well, we went to Siri's first, but are planning a two part anniversary celebration, with the second part at La Campagne.

Siri's is located right across Route 70 from the new Wegmans's at Garden State Racetrack development, so we even had a little after dinner shopping experience.

The menu was extensive, and reasonable. Hard to choose between four interesting soups. We both chose the wild mushroom soup in a coconut milk base, with Thai seasonings, for $5. Tasty and original. My appetizer, the crab/shrimp golden pockets were crisp wontons with a very tasty filling and lovely sweet curry sauce, maybe $6 or $7. My husband thought his Thai beef salad was too tough; I thought it was appropriately chewy and tasty from my sample.

His main was a marinated chicken breast with curried sauce that he thoroughly enjoyed--$15. My seafood melange included diver scallops, langostini, shrimp and some salmon in a tasty but not spicy sauce with cashews--$20.

Service and decor were quite nice, with the biggest disappointment being the deserts. Both the tiramasu and my apricot tart seemed to have been made days before. NOt bad, but nothing to rave about--$6 each. Coffee served in relatively thick china was on target.

I would go back; there were many interesting entrees that intrigued me, with the most expensive being a rack of lamb in pistachio nuts, for $30. Great value.
