Foodielicious pt. 1

I've really been trying to tone down with eating out lately to help adjust to healthier eating habits and save money. This week though, I had a dinner date with my dear middle school friend who will be moving on to medical school as well as a dinner date for two with La Dubs.

Here is part one of my foodielicious adventure! Commonwealth has been on my list of to try for quite some time and I'm glad to say that it lived up to my expectations. The decor was simple, airy and bright. Nothing too over the top or snooty.

We started out with the complimentary homemade chips with nori powder-- which I just couldn't get enough of. It was served with some sort of foamy dip that I didn't quite get or cared for. I was happy munching the chips on its own.




We started with,
shishito peppers, goat cheese mousse, rose
crispy rabbit rillettes, brik pastry, peach mostarda.
I wasn't exactly a fan of the rabbit rillettes but I loved the shishito peppers.



And had the 
halibut poached in coconut milk, potato, little gems, padron peppers, rose geranium
grilled beef heart, sprouting broccoli, daikon radish, ramps, black garlic, kimchee
for our entrees. The halibut is so good and so soft that it reminded us of crabmeat!


Everything was delicious but I especially loved the halibut and the beef hearts. It was definitely a great catch up date with my friend. 

And just an update, last week has officially become my best foodie week ever-- by the end of the week, I managed to knock out 3 Yelp bookmarks in the span of a week!
