Mashed Potato Sputnik

The funniest thing ever to happen in a fancy restaurant.

At the Riu Palace in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, in the "Krystal" Fusion restaurant (quotation marks are theirs, not mine) I ordered the Vegetable parmentier with dill oil.

What I didn't know at the time, is that according to the food dictionary, parmentier is defined as a descriptor for a dish garnished or made with potatoes.

So this is what I was served:

Mashed potato sputnik. It was delicious, however, it wasn't what I was expecting. The probes are zucchini and carrot, and the lettuce is probably there to cover up the embarassment.

  1. Your sputnik is certainly interesting and proves how creative, we can be when we want our food to tell a tale.

    Thanks for linking it to MMM.
