A couple of weeks ago, Dave and I enjoyed dinner at the Twisted Rooster in Belleville with Sarah, Karen, and Josh. Karen and Josh had been before and had recommended it. Dave and I got to the restaurant a little early, so we took a seat at the bar and ordered drinks. I got a pineapple upside down cake martini (fabulous!) and Dave ordered a glass of the Motor City Brewing Works Ghetto Blaster beer, which Dave though was just OK.
For dinner, I ordered the BBQ chicken and smoked gouda quesadilla and Dave ordered the pulled pork sandwich. The quesadilla was very good, but I wish it had a more smokey flavor. I think that if the title of a dish includes one of the ingredients, that flavor should be very bold in the dish and in this case it wasn’t. I also wish that the sour cream sauce that was drizzled over the quesadilla had been provided in a small container on the side so I could dip. Despite my couple of complaints, I did enjoy it a lot and would order it again.
Dave enjoyed the pulled pork sandwich which came with a sweet crunchy noodle slaw on top that was a bit overshadowed by the flavor of the pork. The sandwich was served with salt and pepper fries. The fries were quite addictive, nice and crunchy on the outside, but warm and fluffy on the inside.
Overall, we really enjoyed the Twisted Rooster and we would go back again.
