The Mister and I cruised on the Breakaway the other week. I began a large writeup about what we did, but suddenly realized that I have no desire to do all of that writing this time. So I’ll create a few posts that focus on what we did at specific times instead of putting it all into one article. For the foodies out there, this one is for you.
The focus of these photos i on two meals. One in taste restaurant for lunch and the other in the Manhattan room. The Taste meal might be of particular interest to those who want to see what specific appetizers look like in this restaurant.
7 Course Meal of Appetizers at Taste Restaurant on the Norwegian Breakaway
– Greek Salad 4 out of 5 stars.
Tasty without being too heavy on the Olive Oil Dressing.
– Hummus and Bagel Chips. 3 of 5.
I enjoyed the hummus and savory marinated vegetables. The chips were nice but I think that I like the idea of Bagel chips more than Bagel chips.
– Scallops and Garlic Bread. 2.5 of 5 stars.
My husband mentioned that the sauce used for the scallops seemed to be the same one used for the Escargot in Le Bistro and that it worked better with Escargot. I thought that it was flavorful but rather overpowering for such a light meal. The garlic bread was quite delicious. I could eat it all day, but I didn’t. This time.
– Atlantic Chowder Soup. 3.5 of 5.
Not memorable but good. A tasty soup that I wouldn’t hesitate to try again. Not overly seafoody, but still maintaining that essence.
– Vanilla Bean Creme Caramel (like Flan) 5 of 5.
Flan consistency. Very good with a vanilla twist on a classic. The topping was crunchy and added a nice variety of texture to the tasting palette.
– The Raspberry
– Popcorn Shrimp 2.5 of 5.
Nice and crunchy but I like my Popcorn shrimp with a little more shrimp and a bit more spice.
– Watermelon and Feta Cheese 4 of 5.
This concept went over well. The sweet of the watermelon, with the tang of the vinegar and lime and creaminess of the feta bits.
