Dinner at Poros

The “dinner spread” that Mom & I enjoyed at Poros (one of the Big Y restaurants)!

*DISCLAIMER*: Neither Poros nor the Big Y Restaurant Group asked me to write this post.  I am just a Friendly Pittsburgh Foodie and Yogini, who enjoys sharing her food and yoga adventures with others. Photos captured with an iPhone 5s, and were edited with Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Instagram.

Last year, I won a gift certificate from The Fearless Warrior Conference to the Big Y Restaurants! Since my Mother and I have never been to Poros, we decided to dine there before the Pittsburgh Symphony‘s Moonlight Serenade concert in September!

Course #1 : Fingerling Potatoes! VERY tasty, and cooked to perfection! This was one of Poros’ Vegan options!

Course #2: Roasted Cauliflower (also Vegan)! I enjoyed this course as well! Almost as good as the Cauliflower dish at Butcher & The Rye!

I forgot to take a photo, but I also had the Sokolatina Flourless Chocolate Tort (with orange yogurt sauce and candied orange) for dessert. This was one of THE best Flourless Chocolate Torts that I’ve EVER had!

Mom’s Dessert: Bakalava Ice Cream, with walnut and filo! This was REALLY good!

 

Overall, great service and a wonderful dining ambiance! The food was good, but not great. I’m still deciding if I would ever go back, but I did enjoy my dining experience at Poros!
