Poblacion Food Crawl

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

Poblacion is a vibrant neighborhood known for its eclectic mix of dining experiences, and I recently had the pleasure of indulging in a 3-course meal that took me on a culinary journey through some of its finest establishments. From appetizers to dessert, each dish was a testament to the creativity and skill of the chefs. Here’s a detailed look at my gastronomic adventure:

Appetizers at Dr. Wine

Dr. Wine is a charming bistro, renowned for its laid-back ambiance and exquisite selection of appetizers. It’s the perfect spot to kick off any culinary journey.

Baba Ghanoush

Taste: This smoky and creamy eggplant dip was a delightful start to the meal. The smooth texture of the eggplant was complemented by the subtle hint of garlic and lemon, providing a refreshing tang.

Background: Baba Ghanoush is a classic Middle Eastern appetizer. At Dr. Wine, it’s served with freshly baked bread, perfect for scooping up every bit of this flavorful dip.

Salmon Rillette

Taste: The Salmon Rillete was a delicate and flavorful spread, combining finely shredded salmon with herbs. The slight acidity from the lemon zest balanced the richness of the salmon, making it a light yet satisfying appetizer.

Background: Rillettes are a traditional French preparation, typically made with pork or duck. Dr. Wine’s version with salmon offers a lighter twist on this classic, ideal for seafood lovers.


Taste: Soft, creamy, and slightly tangy, the Brie at Dr. Wine was served at the perfect temperature to bring out its buttery flavor. Paired with a drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of nuts, it was a harmonious blend of sweet and savory.

Background: Brie is a renowned French cheese, often referred to as the “Queen of Cheeses.” At Dr. Wine, it’s served with accompaniments that enhance its natural flavors.

Solar Shroom Gyoza

Background: Gyozas are Japanese dumplings, often enjoyed as a snack or side dish. Kosu Mosu’s mushroom version is a vegetarian delight that doesn’t skimp on flavor.

Big Bang Chicken Bao

Taste: The Big Bang Chicken Bao was an explosion of flavors. Tender, juicy chicken was encased in a soft, fluffy bao bun, topped with a spicy and tangy sauce. The fresh vegetables added a crunchy texture that rounded out the dish.
