Valentine’s Day Date

I’m sorry I haven’t blogged recently! I have been pretty busy with school and the quarter is finally over. Woohoo! This past Valentine’s day, I went to Rockcreek located in Fremont. It’s a newer restaurant that is right next to Uneeda Burger (also really like that place).

Atmosphere: It has really classy wooden decor with a bar and a little patio area in the front. It’s also two stories. I didn’t get a chance to go upstairs but there seemed to have a lot of seating. It didn’t look that big of a restaurant from the outside. With the high ceiling, it made the restaurant seem even bigger.

Pricing: It’s a little on your expensive side. Small plates are about $12-$14. Entrees are about $20. They encourage sharing, which is what we usually tend to do.

Service: Our waiter was excellent! He kept checking in on us and made some really great recommendations that we ended up getting. A+

Rockcreek oyster stew with smoked bacon, sofrito, herb butter and Tobasco crackers. The spiciness of the soup surprised me until I looked to see what was in it.

IMG_0040Dungeness crab chile relleno, bright tomatilla salsa, cool radish herb salad. It was basically a pepper with dungeness crab inside. really interesting and had a lot of great flavors. The texture was nice too with the crunch pepper and soft crab.

Split Oregon Poussin, butternut squash, root vegetable has, brown butter, sage, and hazelnuts. Very tender chicken! It was bigger than I thought it would be.

IMG_0068This was probably my favorite. Short Trip Neah Bay black cod, sherry, lime, caramelized shallots. The flavor was sweet, but balanced out with the fish. Very flaky as well!

IMG_0076I can’t resist desserts! This was the smore – graham cracker, chocolate mousse, smoked meringue, caramel, and sprinkled sea salt on top. It was a really great combo.

Overall: I thought everything was delicious and they served larger portions than some other nicer restaurants I’ve been to. I was pretty happy with the dinner and I would give them a 4.5/5. I heard their brunch is super good, but they don’t take any reservations for that :/ I’ll have to come back and try it 🙂
