A big menu is also a big responsibility for a restaurant. Can you turn out salads, sushi, Thai food, Asian fusion and even a great burger all on the same night? We can’t answer for everything on the menu, but PM restaurant in the Belmont area was right on target with our items on a recent Friday night. Best of all the food is quite affordable and there’s a funky, laid back atmosphere to the place.
We started with the Peanut Sauce Fondue, which comes with pieces of focaccia and crispy tofu for dipping. The peanut sauce was savory and worked well with the light, fluffy bread and the perfectly fried tofu.
For main dishes the Meat Eater succumbed to hype and ordered the popular Char-Grilled Burger with wasabi mayo. It lived up the reputation for being a truly great burger, but did make the Meat Eater feel guilty for not being more adventurous.
Veggie Eater: I was pleasantly surprised by PM. We had ventured here about a year ago for cocktails, and had not returned for dinner. Something about that visit made me think it was fussy, and so we never got around to going back until this weekend. I’m glad we finally did. I had the Moo Shu vegetables and it was phenomenal: little julienned fresh veggies, including fresh shitakes; a homemade soy ginger sauce instead of gloppy, syrupy hoison; and most amazing, home made Moo Shu pancakes/crepes that were fluffy with little scallions immersed inside the crepes. There were many other items for the vegetarian to try, and I promise I will return to sample some more.
Meat Eater: We had two beers, an appetizer and two entrees for a total of $36 including tax and tip. For food this good, that’s a steal.
