Vikings: American Independence Day Menu Set at SM North Edsa

July 3, 2014 SM City North Edsa Scenic Skywalk, Quezon City, Philippines

I didn't know that Vikings had a monthly theme special.  I was invited to sample their American Independence Day Menu Set for the month of July.

Although with the same theme, each branch had the freedom to make their own menu selection.  I was fortunate to try Vikings at SM North Edsa.

Food

Appetizer
tortilla club sandwich
Tortilla Club Sandwich
The Tortilla Club Sandwich is a tortilla wrap with cheddar cheese, ham, turkey, lettuce and chopped black olives with thousand island dressing.  This is delicious!
 

niagara falls maki maryland maki maguro maki
Niagara Falls Maki, Maryland Maki and Maguro Maki
The Niagara Falls Maki is my favorite among the three.  It really stands out because it has noodles and sauce on top of it.  It's very flavorful since it has vinegar, mayonnaise, avocado,mango, citrus, Japanese soy sauce, and tuna.  The Maryland Maki was popular among my companions.  It's a fried roll wrapped in nori (seaweed) and filled with crabstick, carrot, mango, strawberry sauce and mango puree.  The Maguro Haru Maki has chicken teriyaki, asparagus, carrot, tuna and crabstick with mango puree with cream sauce.

Salad
chicago summer salad
Chicago Summer Corn Salad
The Chicago Summer Corn Salad has cheese, diced cucumber, onions and tomatoes and corn kernels.  It was very light and refreshing.

Soup
chowder
Boston Clam Chowder Soup
I love chowder soups!  This Boston Clam Chowder Soup is really top-notch and definitely one of the best I've had.  This even beats some of those I've tried in expensive fine dining restaurants.  It has a very creamy broth that delivers a rich clam flavor.  It also has fine cubes of carrots, celery, green onions and potato.  Everything especially the potato was cooked with precision!  It is also served with a cheese bread stick.

Main Course
california grilled fish agli olio roasted bell peppers
California Grilled Fish and Agli Olio with Roasted Bell Pepper
The California Grilled Fish is an impressive gindara dish marinated for 24 hours in orange marmalade.  It was praised by everyone.  The Agli Olio with Roasted Bell Pepper is an angel hair pasta with parmesan, chopped green olives, green bell pepper and tomatoes.  I don't usually enjoy oil-based pasta.  But, this is exceptional!

lime sorbet
Lemon Sorbet
I found the Lemon Sorbet a bit too thick and sweet.  It's refreshing if taken only in small amount.


indianas pork loin cranberry sauce lime gaze jambalaya louisiana rice shepherds pie
Indiania's Pork Loin with Cranberry Sauce or Ginger Lime Gaze, Jambalaya Louisiana Rice and Mississippi's Turkey Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie
The Indiania's Pork Loin with Cranberry Sauce or Ginger Lime Gaze is tender but a bit dry.  The Ginger Lime Gaze is sweet as it is caramelized.  The Jambalaya Louisiana Rice is flavorful!  I'm told the secret is that it has 8 spices along with its tomato base.  The Mississippi's Turkey Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie is such a nice comfort food. The top layer is a smooth finely mashed potato and underneath is akin to a tomato-based turkey stew with chickpeas.  
 

tenderloin
Tenderloin with Red Wine Sauce and Horse Radish Sauce and Corn on a Cob
I had my Tenderloin with Red Wine Sauce and Horse Radish Sauce cooked medium so its pink and not bloddy wet.  I liked both the sauces.  The beef was tender with a light taste of thyme and pepper.


yorkshire pudding
Yorkshire Pudding
Westerners enjoy their roast dinners with the Yorkshire Pudding which is made using the meat drippings.  It's my first time to encounter one so I was ecstatic to try it.  This one is heavy and dense.  According to my research, this should be puffy and airy as it is eaten like a dinner roll.


Pastry
vikings sm north edsa
Boston Cream Pie, New York Cheesecake and Cherry Cashew Parfaits
The Boston Cream Pie is sinfully delightful!  The top layer is a thick, rich and creamy dark chocolate ganache.  The next layer is a smooth almond cream followed by chocolate mousse and the soft crust.  The New York Cheesecake has a heavy, dense, rich and chewy texture.  The Cherry Cashew Parfaits is light and simple.
