Hello everyone it’s Healthy Chef Angela Rivera hoping everyone is enjoying restaurant week as much as I am. As always I was so pleased with my dinner at Union restaurant in Haverstraw.
The food was great as usual and Paolo, one of the owners, was a charmer as always. (He’s a huge reason I love going there.) My girlfriend was ecstatic that they had their famous pinto bean ravioli on the menu. We had all of the appetizers.
Lychee-Coco Soup Shrimp Tiradito & crispy cornbread crouton:
Guacamole Tomatillo Salsa with Chimol & smoked paprika tortilla chips:
Crispy Rock Shrimp Frito with Jicama, romaine leaf, dulce & agrio sauce:
Pinto Bean Ravioli with White truffe oil, chorizo & queso seco:
BBQ Pork Quesadilla with Jack Cheese, Cucumber annd Napa Cabbage Cole Slaw:
The rock shrimp and the guacamole were definitely my favorite! The coco shrimp soup was presented so cute we didn’t even want to eat it and mess up the presentation.
I went lite on the main course so I decided to have the fish.
What a great spring dish. A lightly pan fried hake with a bean ragout and chard and I loved it.
Both of my girlfriends had the panko crusted pork chop with the tomato arugula salad.
They really enjoyed the balance of a nice pan fried pork chop with a light salad.
For dessert, we enjoyed the apple fritter:
the coconut rice pudding brulee:
and the waffle yum yum:
By the end of the night we were so full we figured we wouldn’t have to eat for a few days.
I’d like to end on this note: Union is a great place to eat, not just for Restaurant Week, but any time.
