First, we ordered the playful pigs in a blanket, using Chinese sausage with a light crispy outer skin, served mustard and sweet chili sauce. The dish tasted really good and looked like a work of art.
We also ordered the chicken liver toast, served with a grapefruit marmalade and crispy chicken skin.
Another great dish, and for someone who doesn't like chicken liver that much this dish also tasted great.
The last dish we ordered was the clam chowder. The chowder itself was made well, but the homemade oyster crackers were what really made the dish for me. So light, fluffy, and flavorful.
While I wouldn't suggest going to Alder's if you are pretty hungry, it's a great spot for a date to share some beautiful and great tasting plates of food. We'll be back someday to try some other dishes in the future.
