The Seabourn Legend: The Veranda Cafe: Lunch
Shrimp with Cocktail Sauce
The shrimp were perfectly cooked.
Salmon with Spinach and Wild Rice en Croute with White Wine Sauce
The salmon was a bit overcooked, and the crust was a bit soggy, but the sauce was great and when you removed the crust this was a pretty tasty dish.
The air-dried beef was interesting and tasty, as was the prosciutto. The duck rillette was not very flavorful.
Really good. Beefy, cheesy, flavorful. Yum.
Not great, but not bad.
Salty and delicious, as cured meat should be
This was interesting. It tasted like ham, but had the consistency of those Vietnamese meat cake things that are wrapped in leaves.
Salad and Smoked Tuna and Eel
The only problem, food-wise, with this cruise so far is the lack of veggies. Alexis was craving some roughage and loaded up her plate with a bit salad. The smoked tuna was very interesting…very salty and very tender.
Fish and Chips with Mushy Peas
The fish was good, even if the breading was a bit stick. The mushy peas were surprisingly good. They were salty and delicious. A baby would have loved them.
Pasta with Artichokes
This was actually a bit of a miss. The pasta was overcooked and the artichokes undercooked. There was nothing special about the sauce.
