Our 3rd year anniversary dinner at Morton’s

And so we were back to Morton’s for our 3rd year anniversary dinner. Unfortunately we weren’t entitled to their complimentary soufflé as we were celebrating our ‘dating’ anniversary and not a wedding anniversary. But I guess that wasn’t about to stop us from ordering it on our own. Haha

To start, we ordered the ‘Chilled’ seafood platter as opposed to the ‘Baked’ one, primarily because we were just craving so badly for the jumbo shrimp cocktails! We were left super impressed by it the last time we came here. The platter for 2 came with chunks of lobster, crabmeat, 2 oysters, 2 jumbo shrimp and Alaskan King crab legs. We concluded it’s somewhat value for money if you’re looking to try a little of everything, but definitely unable to satisfy our Jumbo Shrimp craving so we ended up ordering a separate ala carte order of it. Hahaha

For our mains, we both were sort of decided on the Prime Ribeye for myself and New York Strip for Bunny but was informed by the waitstaff of their serving size and was recommended to have one to share before ordering the next. 

So in an attempt to prevent over-ordering, we went ahead with the ribeye, along with three different side orders - Truffle mash Cauliflower, Cream Corn and Mashed potatoes. Hahahahaha. 

The Mashed Potatoes were really just Mashed potatoes, served with a generous amount of bacon topping, butter and sour cream. But $26 for the mash, not worth the calories and the price. 

The Truffle mashed Cauliflower was something refreshing amidst all the starchy options, pretty much the winner among the three we ordered. 

Cream Corn was ok too, less sweet as compared to Lawry’s but Bunny said she prefers the creamier texture of the one at Lawry’s better. 

We finished the ribeye very quickly, and decided that ok! We have room for a New York strip! Hahahaha. Glad that we ordered cuz we concluded that we both prefer the New York strip for that oomph of flavor which was lacking in the ribeye. 

Ended the meal off with the chocolate soufflé we had both been craving but somehow felt that the overall meal lacked the punch we had, to that of our last meal there. Food was good in general, just lacking the punch that we had from our previous visit. Figured our trusty Lawry’s would just do the trick to ease a steak craving. Haha.
