The destination of our most recent weeknight dinner date was a relatively new restaurant in our neighborhood. Dark Horse.
We needed something in this part of the city, and we were super happy when they opened a few months ago.
The interior decor is very cool. I love their use of salvaged wood. Rustic yet inviting.
When we got to the restaurant, it was still not completely dark outside yet. So I chose this table right by the window, hoping I could take nice pictures of our food.
Their menu is not very big and unique in terms of the number of items under each category. For instance there were only three things listed as an entree; their actual menu presented at the restaurant was a bit different from the one on their website.
Terry had fish tacos. They were not exceptional but good.
I had eggplant and mushroom gyro.
My review on this dish is rather mixed.
I didn’t care for their “vegan tzatziki”. I appreciated their effort to make it vegan, but it did not have the fresh flavor you would expect from tzatziki sauce that is usually made with real yogurt. I was disappointed by the expected acidity flavor being absent as well. But there was something I LOVED about this dish. That was their homemade pita bread. It was warm, chewy, and absolutely delicious.
Next time I would like to try one of their burgers. We saw a waitress bringing a burger dish to another customer. It had a pretzel bun and it looked really good.
