When was the last time you were overwhelmed with delicious choices at a restaurant? I met 3 of my favorite people for lunch at Tiny Pyramid this past Sunday, and I had the hardest time making a choice. If you’re a pescatarian, this place is heaven. Although you can find chicken, duck, and lamb on the menu, there are tons of seafood options.
I asked our server for the most popular items on the menu to help make my decision, and finally chose the Fisherman’s Pot Pie, a puff pastry with salmon, scallops, shrimp, bamboo, eggplant, zucchini, and red bell pepper in a green curry sauce. I was not disappointed by my choice. I was sure to get a piece of the flaky pastry paired with a piece of seafood for each perfect bite.
Katie ordered the Laotian Pot Pie, which was a puff pastry with chicken breast, carrot, onion, potato, and zucchini in a tomato sauce. She enjoyed her deconstructed pot pie!
Katrina chose the Green Curry, which came with the cutest tiny pyramid of rice. She described it as having the perfect level of spice, not too hot or mild.
Vanessa had the Khang Lao soup, which had a lemongrass broth with baby corn, spinach, and tomato. She said the broth was very flavorful.
She also enjoyed her Sea Scallop Napoleon. It was the previously mentioned puff pastry with scallop, eggplant, red bell peppper, and zucchini in a lemongrass curry sauce. Yum!After we were done with our main dishes, we went to the glorious case of desserts to make our picks. Again, more difficult choices to make! Everything was so beautiful and there was such a variety of flavors to choose from.
You really can’t go wrong with these beautiful desserts. The Chocolate Pyramid is a must if you’re a chocoholic, while the fresh fruit made the tarts a delicious choice.Coffee or tea is a must when eating desserts like these!
There are seats inside the restaurant, as well as in the covered area outside the eatery. They can accomodate quite a few people, but I would recommend making a reservation to ensure your spot. I was extremely impressed with the menu and beautiful desserts offered at Tiny Pyramid. It’s the kind of place that I can see myself going to over and over again. The menu had something for everyone, and I literally wanted to try every single dessert in that shiny case. As you can tell by my pictures, their food is art work on a plate. If you’re looking for a lunch, dinner, or dessert date spot, I highly recommend Tiny Pyramind.
