Even if it was a Tuesday night, the place was really packed. We sat outside and it wasn’t able to get a glimpse of how the inside looks. We told the waitress to move us to the inside when there’s a table available but I guess people really stay there long to chat over big ass beers so we stayed outside the whole time. The place wasn’t bad and it was quite chilly anyway so we enjoyed the ambiance.Since we went straight to Eastwood after work, we decided to eat dinner first before trying out their beers. They serve a wide variety of dishes from pasta to ribs to pizza to a vast selection of appetizers, it’s my kind of food!
After the really yummy roast beef, I was expecting a lot from the entree, and sadly, it didn’t live up to my expectations. The chicken was perfectly cooked, juicy and not burnt. But it didn’t taste like anything. I wish they seasoned the chicken with some rosemary or even just salt and pepper. The jambalaya was okay. Again, well cooked but lacking in depth of flavor. Upon checking the menu, it mentioned that the jambalaya has sausages but honestly, I didn’t taste it at all. Underwhelming entree that could easily be fixed by adding spices. I hope they do something about it.
I was expecting this to be like how butterbeer would taste like: sweet and buttery. There was a hint of sweetness but it wasn’t caramel-y enough for me. However, I usually don’t like beer and I was able to finish more than half of it so it made beer more bearable for me. All in all, it’s pretty good for the price. One of this is enough for a night of catching up. I’ll try the other flavors next time.At the end of the day, will I eat here again? Yes, definitely! Rue Bourbon has promising food since what I had were all well cooked. I’ll go back for the roast beef, though maybe without fries, and I’d like to try the other items on their menu. The beer is a good complement to the meal. Rue Bourbon is a great place to have dinner and drinks!
