So it’s been 3 months since my last blog post. Work picked up and so did everything outside of work. I’ve been taking pictures of meals I’ve wanted to blog about, but I haven’t had the time to sit down and post about it all. Over the next few days, I’ll chronicles those lost food moments – just in time for an awesome event I’ll be eager to blog about this coming Saturday! My best friend Jenn (check out her blog Jenn Dot Com) and I will be attending the Gig Harbor Wine and Food Festival!
To get back into the swing of things, here’s a small taste of some scrumptious vittles Jenn and I noshed on at The Triple Door for Tweet Up for Team Up Birthday Bash! back in May. Happy Hour is 4pm-6pm everyday and 9pm-12am Sunday-Thursday, with some great food options (between $2.50-$8) and a variety of drinks specials ($3-$6 cocktails, draft beer, and wine).
If I recall correctly, I stuck to the wine – decent pours, they did me well! We started with the Indonesian twice-cooked chicken wings, a dish I hadn’t tried before. They were quite good – crispy yet tender, salty and sweet, and at $5 for 6 wings something I’d probably get again.
Then came the fragrant duck sliders ($5). The fragrant duck at Wild Ginger (same kitchen as The Triple Door) is one of my favorite duck preparations, so give it to me already on the bun w/ the plum sauce and I’m all for it. I really didn’t think I liked fruit and meat together until I had the golden plum sauce with the fragrant duck. And the buns, such a perfect soft pillow for the duck!
We weren’t quite full then, so we also ordered the peasant’s chicken satay ($2.50). I enjoyed it, particularly the peanut sauce. Their peanut sauce isn’t very sweet (which I like in this case), but full of peanut flavor. I also really like how the satay always come with the sticky rice! I’d like to go back and try the wild boar skewers during Happy Hour, not sure I’d want to pay more than $4 for 2 skewers.
All in all, I’d give Happy Hour in the Musicquarium of The Triple Door another go as I am a fan of the Wild Ginger food and the drink prices aren’t too hard on the wallet! Check them out on Twitter and Facebook.
Tomorrow, a look at the happy hour offerings of El Gaucho!
