aroma_logoThank you Restaurant.com for giving us a delicious dinner experience, allowing us to keep our budget for date night, yet getting to taste amazingly good food!  We saved $25!  And oh man was it delectable.

Aroma1Ricky enjoyed a Seared Mahi Mahi with a cold rice/quinoa salad with sauteed jicama on top.  So refreshing.  I went for the Ropa Vieja, shredded flank steak, rice, black beans and plantains.  As Ricky said, “that beef was marinated in magic”. And just to brag on restaurant.com for a moment, these two $18 dishes only cost us about $6 each.  wow.

And then to top it off, since we’d saved so much mula, we decided to splurge on a little dessert.  It was inspiring.  Pineapple cinnamon wantons with a little vanilla ice cream that had chocolate shavings mixed in. (It was inspiring because I think I figured out how to make them at home, I found wanton wrappers at our local asian market!)

Aroma2Folks, I definitely recommend this little urban place, and it’s right here in Olney! If you like light, fresh foods (not a lot of fried stuff here…and they bring in meat fresh from the market each day… I felt like I’d stepped out of the little country town into a sweet little urban-city restaurant…so good.)

And of course, this was Especially nice because Ricky’s been sick and we’ve finally been able to get out and get a little time together without him feeling miserable!
