What got us curious and what brought us to Burgoo were the kids having a blast drawing on the table. That's a good idea so they won't get bored while waiting for the food to be served. Right there and then, we decided to try Burgoo =)The place:
spacious, clean, bright and inviting. We liked that they have booths with white cushioned seats. They had white paper as table cover which you can draw, write on; and they provided crayons! We were like kids doodling on every surface we could find! Haha!
The servers would introduce him/herself and write his/her name (backwards-not the mirror image type but facing our direction) on the paper table cover. Amazing! All of them were cheerful and accommodating. They also looked tidy and professional.
On to the food...
We had Grilled Chicken Alfredo, Seafood Jambalaya and Strawberry Margarita. We were already hungry just from the names of the dishes! The Chicken Alfredo
was great! The strips of chicken were big and tender and had a lot of flavor. We thought it wouldn't taste good (because it looked pale, white) but boy were we wrong! Don't judge a chicken by its skin. Haha! The white sauce was also very appetizing - creamy, flavorful and just had the right texture.
Next is the Seafood Jambalaya
! The dish not only sounded good -- it tasted and smelled really good, too. There were a lot of toppings: fluffy, soft, juicy shrimps, tender squid rings, flavorful, aromatic mussels and some fresh bright green peas. The rice was also cooked well with the right amount of flavor, not overpowering the taste of seafood and vice versa. The whole dish was a feast for our taste buds!
For our drinks, we chose to have Strawberry Margarita
. What a refreshing drink! It looked very nice, too, with the pinkish, icy liquid and the bright red cherry on top. It tasted sweet and tangy at the same time.
Needless to say, we had a great lunch! so much flavor, texture for our palates! We were not disappointed to have chosen to eat at Burgoo. Next time, we'd like to try their desserts. We heard they have desserts that could satisfy sweet tooth! Overall, we had a fun dining experience at Burgoo-- the food, atmosphere, servers were great!
