A couple times a year I (and family/friends) dine in Cambria. Most often food quality is uneven-especially for the prices. Last night, for the first time, I tried Indigo Moon. It wasn’t any better. The ambiance is very pleasant, tables not too close together and the service is perfectly decent. However, the food’s quality ranged from excellent to an epic failure.
The Lobster Bisque was great. Not too rich, yet with an intense flavor, this velvety smooth soup flecked with bits of what I hope was lobster, caused us to look forward to the rest. Too bad.
The “Hearts of Romaine” Caesar boasted the dark green outer leaves that are not from the heart and easily wilted under the top ascetic dressing.
We liked the Shrimp Tempura except WHEN COATING SHRIMP WITH A BATTER, REMOVE THE TAILS AND LOWER SHELLS FIRST The accompanying noodles we’re unpleasantly textured.
The Cauliflower au gratin was bland and the cauliflower was cooked between al dente and raw.
Finally, the Crab Cakes with a chili-lime sauce contained something peculiar tasting that overpowered everything else. We never tasted the crab. Visually it was appealing but, after taking a bite, we looked at each other in wonder. It was practically inedible so we didn’t finish them. With crab cakes, that never happens.
