We started out with a breaded shrimp appetizer with aioli for dipping (one mild and sweet and one with a kick) along with some roasted veggies. Both of us were salivating for some of Asado’s fine butternut squash soup that we had eaten on other visits. On the menu we saw “Butternut Puree” so we assumed that had to be soup. So when we requested the “Butternut Puree” BEFORE our entrée our lovely and kind server looked a bit puzzled but happily took our request. We were then served a pile of mashed butternut squash chunks. We couldn’t stop laughing at our ignorance and were too shy to tell our delightful server. I am sure she would have understood if we admitted our gaff. Of course, I like to blame the whole thing on my pre-dinner martini. Let’s leave it at that.
After our squash piles, and loads of laughter, we enjoyed delicious entrées (hubby had steak, prawns, and chorizo sausage with a side of purple Peruvian mashed potatoes) and I had delectably smoky flavorful king salmon with the same awesome purple potatoes. We felt “just right” full.
Enjoy! Even if it's a pile of squash, you'll love it.
