This past weekend, I went to Savannah to tour some old homes for a soft of “girls weekend” with family. In an ironic twist of fate, the home tour was a few weeks ago…..
Yeah, that pretty much sums up the weekend. But, we made the best of it and still had a great time!!
I had never been to Savannah before, and it was truly an amazingly beautiful city. The moss… the history… I loved it all. My allergies, however, did not concur. 🙁
Most of what I ate wasn’t that exciting…. On the way down, we did stop at Cracker Barrel and had breakfast. I had the Good Morning Breakfast and it was pretty good. It’s really hard to mess up breakfast.
But, what I really want to talk about is the amazing meal we had for dinner the first night of our stay. It was at the The Olde Pink House in downtown Savannah.
First off, the building was beautiful!
We were seated upstairs in part of the restaurant that was a new addition in 2008. It was, however, still in keeping with the look and feel of the rest of the house.
When we sat down, I asked for the gluten free menu and they were happy to get it for me. No problems. I love it already.
For dinner, I had the Bourbon Molasses Grilled Pork Tenderloin and Sweet Potato with Pecan Vanilla Butter. It was supposed to come with Collard Greens, but I’m not a huge fan of greens. So, I switched them out for asparagus. I cannot express in words how delicious this meal was. The meat was so tender. It almost melted in your mouth. Amazing!
When our server offered us dessert, I was pleased to hear that they had two options for me!! Wow! We decided on the peanut butter mousse covered in milk chocolate on a dark chocolate base. When he said it was like a big Reese’s cup, I was sold. We decided to order one and share it with the table. (The other gluten free option they had was a praline basket.)
The dessert didn’t disappoint. I almost forgot to take a picture of it! So sorry! Here it is after we had already started digging into it.
If you are in Savannah, I highly recommend The Olde Pink House. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
We spent the rest of our time visiting historic homes and museums. Here’s some photos taken around the Savannah area:
