I was in Dutchess County, New York, this past weekend. Do you know what that means?
Dinner at Another Fork in the Road!
Our menu for the evening – but the chicken under a brick had been replaced by fried chicken. And now that I think about it, I think the kimchi brussel sprouts were unavailable. I think it was more of a kimchi sauce that was on the plate. Something had been sold out – maybe the rabbit meatballs?
The cauliflower appetizer. I only tasted a little bit of it because I am anti-cilantro, but what I tasted of it was very good.
The kale and mussel toast. OMG! So good!
The scallops platter was not mine, but I think it was the best of the entrees at our table. I think I’m probably biased toward any plate with perfectly cooked scallops.
The fried chicken was superb! The sauce was spicy and very red, so I think it might have had gochujang in it. The scallion pancake was a floppy disappointment though. I guess I can’t have it all.
The duck and soba soup was mine. The broth and the duck were delicious. Yes, that is cilantro you see. Yes, I picked it all off. In my defense, cilantro was not mentioned in the menu description for this dish. The soba noodles were oddly a little bitter? I wonder if they had been dressed in sauce before being added to the soup.
If for some weird reason you’re in Red Hook, NY, or elsewhere in Dutchess County, I still recommend having a meal here.
