Alright everyone, I’m super excited to tell you guys all about my latest food adventure with Justin (aka DCFoodPorn). We went to Silver in Bethesda, MD last week to get our nom on for lunch. I seriously felt like I had died and gone to food heaven! We got to try a bunch of different dishes – all of which were super delish.
We started thangs off with nomtastic drinks. We ordered a Heath Bar milkshake (made with breyers ice cream) and a Beachbum cocktail (made with bacardi, blackwell rum, apricot brandy, pineapple, and lime). We sipped on them while looking over apps. Everything looked BOMB so it was a hard decision, but we ended up going with Creekstone Angus sliders and Tuna Tartare.
DCFoodPorn werking it.
Our tuna tartare! Marinated in a ponzu sauce with chunks of avocado, garnished with micro greens and dressed with lime peanut dressing – comes with a side of crispy wontons. Available in a half + whole portion!
Then, we ordered 3 different entrees to share for our main course: Caramel French Toast, Pan Seared Scallops, and Carolina Shrimp Picatta. Sooo, let’s just go in order. If you’re a fan of all things sweet, the french toast will blow your mind. This plate of deliciousness was coated in maple sugar + salted caramel drizzle.
The scallops were on POINT. They were perfectly cooked and flavored with MD Bay seasoning, lemon garlic sauce, feta, cilantro and served on a bed of wilted spinach (!!!!) They came with mashed butternut squash and mixed vegetables. I didn’t take a photo of the shrimp dish, but that was also super nomtastic. It was dressed in a scrumptious lemon garlic caper sauce and garnished with italian parsley – it came with the same side dishes mentioned above. FYI, both of these fabulous plates were under 600 calories each. I love that they offer a lighter menu here!
Conclusion: I’ll be back to try their other dishes soon! If you live in the DMV area, head on over and try ’em out. Their grub is definitely on the pricier side, but remember that you’re paying for quality noms. A huge thanks to Silver for having us!
