This month the Dining Divas discovered KOMA (Kitchen of Michael Anthony) Restaurant – at 3090 Dougall Avenue, in Windsor. It’s nestled behind Taco Bell.
Upon arrival, I was pleasantly surprised at how beautifully decorated the restaurant is. Luxurious red, accompanied by black accents with lovely furniture and great little bar. The place is small – perhaps twelve tables, but it’s the perfect size for Chef Michael Anthony to shine.
The menu presentation isn’t fancy, a printed sheet of paper – but the appetizers and entrees certainly are.
Once all Divas arrived, we chatted among ourselves and reviewed the deliciously described menu choices – most of us kept changing our minds on what to order as each tantalizing item was discussed.
After much discussion and input from our server, about the menu items, we finally decided.
Our starters in included:
- Tempura Vegetables smothered in roasted carrot puree with soy honey dressing
- Rice Balls laid over pulled pork tenderloin with san marzano tomato and guincale
- Braised Lamb atop seared bacon corn bread, caramelized onion and blue cheese
- Panko encrusted Calamari with dill soy honey ginger dressing and red curry cream.
