some good, hot mesquite-charcoal-grilled chicken wih a nice sear on it but still moist and juicy, some plain Basmati rice with a little butter, salt and pepper on it, and some nice fresh green beans sauteed in olive oil with fresh garlic and shallots, and an ice cold glass of tea, then a sliver of chocolate cake with a chocolate ganache and fresh raspberry sauce and black coffee, sitting on the patio with friends around the firepit.
I went to this sushi restaurant called Sensais in Kona a few weeks ago and I have to say that the most delicious sushi I have ever had (it might possibly be the greatest thing to ever grace my taste buds) was the panko crusted shashimi ahi with butter sauce.
Add a side of Saki and I am good to go! Yummy, yummy, yummy, yummy...
The very last, best meal in a great atmosphere with people I like that I've had: Could be almost anything, anywhere.
The last one was Chicken Tandori with Basmati rice, Indian flat bread and a host of sauces with unbelievable spices...in a comfortable/elegant restaurant with candles and flowers on the tables. It was cold outside and the Chai tea was perfection!
Candlelight, great companions, wonderful conversation, a medium rare steak with a side of skinny sketti and grilled veggies...ummm. Be sure to start with a reaspberry daiquiri and move to a good red wine. (end the night with a bubble bath, a roaring fire and more wine)... can't beat the combination!
Cajun baked Salmon or Catfish, mixed vegetables with diced fruit (like mango or pineapple), with steamed white rice! Dessert would be a creamy cheese-cake with strawberry topping. Don't forget the wine; a simple wine, like a zinfandel. Let's eat!
