We went o Hatchet Hall this past Sunday for dinner. It was just OK this time. I've enjoyed our previous visits, but this time some of the food was a bit flat.
It was quite dark, so a lot of the photos didn't turn out well.
Benne Yeast Rolls w/ sweet butter and KY ham - this was delicious. Sweet, salty, creamy, and fatty. Perfect starter.
Red Beans and Carolina Gold rice - This right here was the highlight of the night! Beautiful savory flavors with outstanding rice texture. Total care for ingredients. Sloppy pic. Dug in before the GF could snap a shot.
Chicken Schnitzel w/ hunter's sauce, mushrooms, bacon, dill - This was ok. A little subdued in flavor. The chicken was super crunchy. To the point that it cut up the roof of my mouth.
Duck Breast w/ chanterelle, cherry mostarda, duck fat - This duck was cooked to absolute perfection. The fat was expertly rendered and the meat was a beautiful rosy pink med rare. My qualm with this dish was that the combination of the mostarda and chanerelles brought out an almost BBQ sauce flavor to me. It kind of overpowered the duck flavor. If you closed your eyes and ate it, you would think it was grilled chicken with BBQ sauce. A bit dissappointing...as is the pic.
Beef Fat potatoes were wonderfully crisp and creamy at the same time.
Again, I apologize for the dark pictures.
