Amigo has a very loyal following these days, with live music every night, a great happy hour, and one of the most comfortable seating arrangements in town. Their food has been top notch and consistent since the beginning, but it is never a good idea to rest on your laurels. When the crew at MORE learned they were revamping their menu we had to return and check out the changes. Let’s get right down to business, shall we?
We started with Pumpkin and Cream Sauce with Parma Ham Wrapped Scallop 48RMB, a highly recommended treat that reminded us of Thanksgiving dinner. It comes baked and naturally sweetened with pumpkin, and finished off with a dollop of guacamole on top. Next was Salmon Carpaccio 68RMB, nice and flavorful, very fresh, but it was a big serving for us. Be forewarned, it is a lot of fish. The Chicken Pesto Pizza 88RMB is a nice change from the standard pizza offering, and we actually liked that it still had some tomato sauce as well as the pesto.
One of the biggest winners was the BBQ Pork Ribs 78RMB. Delicious, meaty, doused in a wonderful BBQ sauce, and accompanied by a salad to make you feel a little healthier. Another fantastic surprise was the Lamb Stew on Toast 48RMB. We could have eaten ten orders and been set for the day. The Zesty Lemon Pasta with Broccoli 48RMB was delicious as a simple pasta dish, but might be more aptly named a creamy Alfredo sauce. If you are feeling decadent, try the Foie Gras Hamburger 128RMB.
