My Beef Wellington
dre @ MS Zuiderdam: I got smarter as I spent more days on the cruise. I learned that the dining room posts that night's menu outside the entrance, so I make my way almost every afternoon to check it out and pre-order in my head what I want to eat that night. Funny enough, I knew that Beef Wellington would pop up on one of these meals, and lo and behold, it did! The menu for this night was very exciting as Mike and I ordered the same entree.
Corn and Yellow Squash Soup with Crab Meat
Dim Sum - Veggie dumpling (it was gross), "shumai" (which was pretty good), spring roll (delicious!)
Pistou Soup - vegetables and white bean enhanced with basil pesto oil
Filet of Beef Wellington - I was looking forward to the puff pastry and the roast. There was duck liver pate wrapped around the tenderloin in between the puff pastry which I did not like. The steak was really tender though and deliciously cooked medium rare.
Caramelized Pear crepe - we really like the portion sizes of this ship. I'm sure there is minimal food waste as well (so we hope!)
Chocolate Brownie Stack - decadent brownie layered with creamy chocolate pudding, piled with chocolate cake chunks and drenched with milk chocolate ganache. This was available daily, and I was tempted to order it every night, but did not want to order 2 desserts. I finally found a dessert menu that didn't have something that I wanted, so it was the perfect excuse to finally order this cake. It made a good last resort dessert, and I secretly hoped there was another chance for me to try this again, but I never did.
