Mimi’s Introduces a Tasty Honey Lavender Pork Chop
We dined as a guest of the venue
Mimi’s is one of our favorite family dining destinations in OC, and during the summer, they tested 175 guest-submitted recipes to find the newest addition to Mimi’s menu. With the help from Ellise Pierce, aka Cowgirl Chef, Mimi’s discovered the winning dish – a honey lavender pork chop.
When I heard the news of this newest menu addition, I couldn’t wait to bring the family to our local Mimi’s to try the new dish. Mimi’s is my younger son’s favorite restaurant, and I was excited to surprise him with news that we were having dinner at his favorite restaurant. I waited to surprise him with the news until we arrived at Mimi’s, and he squealed with delight when he realized where we were eating.
Our family was seated at a comfortable table in the dining room, and our server immediately came over to our table to take our drink orders. The server was quick to notice that our children were extra hungry, and brought out a basket of fresh warm rolls and butter to help curb our kid’s appetite.
We started dinner with our favorite appetizer, the spinach and artichoke dip. The dish is the ultimate comfort food, and our children devoured every last bite. When it came to ordering our main dish, my husband and I both wanted to order the new honey lavender pork chop, but I let him enjoy it for the evening.
The new dish is unlike anything that Mimi’s has put on their menu before. The pork chop was cooked to perfection and boasted fresh flavors. He enjoyed every bite of the new dish and was sweet enough to let me sneak in a couple of bites too.
While he enjoyed the pork chop, I savored every bite of the simmered meat french pasta dish. The dish featured ripe tomatoes and beef that was simmered with carrots, celery, onions, and red wine. It tasted just as authentic as my husband’s Italian Grandma’s sauce recipe.
Everything we ate at Mimi’s Cafe was delicious, and while we wished there was room for dessert, we just couldn’t eat another delicious bite.
Don’t miss experiencing the all-new honey lavender pork chop at your closest Mimi’s Cafe. I guarantee that it will become one of your newest favorite dishes to enjoy while dining out.
