Wednesday - Out to dinner at Shango

Wednesday was date night this week and M and I tried a new-to-us restaurant, Shango, in the University Heights area. Shango is semi-upscale with a Creole influence. We've been wanting to try it since we arrived in Buffalo and were not disappointed. The meal starts with a little olive melange and wonderful breads served with a crelo seasoned olive oil. They serve wine and beer and have extensive lists of both, though fewer Louisiana beers than I hoped for (being a fan of Blackened Voodoo and Crimson Voodoo, neither of which are fatured). We split an appitizer special of mussels in a spicy tomato broth that was out of this world and required more bread for dipping. For entrees I had the creole seafood pasta and M had a pork chop cooked in rootbeer. Everything was extremely well prepared. M thought the chop ended up a bit sweet for his taste, but felt that was a personal preference and not a flaw in the dish. All in all, very yummy. We will be back.
