Meal #26: Dinner

New best dinner winner!!! Wow! We’re staying at Ballygally Castle in Northern Ireland. Beautiful! We had dinner at the castle restaurant. We started with a fresh-made pepper roll with butter. I had a selection of County Down heritage pork. It was SO amazing. The pork belly was crispy and silky with a perfect salty, herbal stuffing. The pork chop was perfectly cooked with an awesome charred exterior. The pork was totally different than our bland American pork. It has so much “animal” flavor. The salad was fresh and crispy with a lovely mustard vinaigrette. The potato croquette was crisp on the outside and smooth and creamy inside. I loved the creamed Savoy cabbage. The Irish really know how to make cabbage! We finished with locally made Irish Ice cream. Wow!!! It was sponge cake with honey, chocolate, and raspberry-lavender ice cream. Awesome!
