Ricardo’s Steak House, birthday dinner

My very dear friend turned 30 this year. She went to Puerto Rico on a couple’s trip, I love that.  We got to celebrate upon her return.  She is a lover of meat and choose Ricardo’s for her celebratory dinner.  I was on time, she was her standard late.  I ordered a strawberry Patron margarita, while I waited.  In my haste to order I forgot to get salt on my rim, it was great without it.  She ordered a pink colada, the waitress warned her it would be weak and wasn’t the best drink.  She was absolutely right, it was mediocre.  The garlic bread was grilled with butter, it was crisp and warm, great combination. We skipped appetizers,  we both have been here before. She ordered the Ricardo’s special platter, skirt steak, pork chop, plantains, mashed potatoes and rice and beans.  Although she enjoyed it, it was a lot of food. She shared her plantain and rice and beans with me and still had a plate to go home.  I ordered the chicken piccata.  It was served with mashed potatoes and grilled veggies.  The veggies were great, the mash was okay, it was a little cold.  The chicken was amazing, no complaints. It’s a birthday dinner,  so there had to be dessert. She ordered cheesecake with fresh strawberries and I ordered the crepe. Her’s came with a firecracker like candle,  it was a nice touch.  My crepe was more like a burrito filled with an espresso filling,  fresh strawberries and vanilla ice cream on the side.  I was disappointed in my dessert.  I am a foodie and was looking forward to the light airy crispness of a crepe.  All in all I enjoyed my meal.  This was my second time here, I would definitely go again.  Next time, I will skip dessert and have a salad instead.
