Thoughts on Beer & Food, Home & Away

#beenawhile - Roister
Posted Sunday, June 18th, 2017 by thewimperoo

Dinner last night at Roister in Chicago for the wife's birthday.  Sat in the basement prep kitchen counter. 5 course meal.  I can't remember all of the components to every dish and there wasn't a menu so descriptions will be to the best of my memories.  Overall it was a pretty epic meal.


Cocktail/Beer Menu


Shinjuku Spritz - I love cucumber water so this hit the spot in cocktail form.


Eden Imperial Rose Ice Cider - More rose than cider, pretty interesting


1st course - East Coast Oyster with a mushroom mignonette & a shrimp dish with other stuff and tempura fried Thai basil leaves.  Could have eaten about 20 of those oysters.


2nd course - Multiple types of radishes, cucumber, carrots, dill, 7 hour egg, pumpernickel rye croutons.  Pumpernickel dashi to drink.  That dashi was insane, such a condensed explosive flavor.


3rd course - Crab fried rice & a green bean dish that had bacon and other stuff.


Snack - Sausage & red cabbage pot stickers with cajun seasoning.


4th course - Fried chicken thighs, sourdough biscuits, hot sauce. A fermented cabbage slaw.


5th course - "Milk & Cookies" & their play on a Take 5 bar (Foie Gras, Pretzel, Caramel, Black Walnut)
