Trip 2 to Hugo’s Restaurant

I took another trip to Hugo’s Restaurant in West Hollywood and again I couldn’t resist some of their monthly specials.  Sadly for you, I went on the last weekend of the month and didn’t have a chance to post these amazing dishes in time.  I do hope they add these to their regular menu.  Both dishes I got were superb!

For an appetizer, I got their Grilled Polenta & Portabello Ragout ($7.75): grilled polenta topped with sautéed diced portabello mushrooms, artichoke hearts, broccolini, and sun dried tomato, in a cashew-cream marsala-tomato sauce and sprinkled with fresh chopped basil.  I wish they bottled this sauce.  Vegans don’t have a creamy red sauce readily available in grocery store and I think our time has come – Hugo’s, are you listening?!  I loved this dish.

For my entree I ordered their special of Oyster Mushroom Tacos ($12.75): warm corn tortillas filled with breaded crispy fried oyster mushrooms and topped with shredded lettuce, jalapeno-marinated vegetables, fire-roasted-tomato salsa and cilantro. Served with chopped romaine salad and Caesar dressing.  I already knew I’d love this dish, because I’ve been recently obsessed with oyster mushrooms.  These mushrooms were perfectly seasoned and not too oily.  The salad was also wonderful.  I couldn’t think of anything I would change about this dish.
