Recently I went to Manhattan Beach Post (M.B Post) for a girl dinner, located near downtown Manhattan Beach and right across from the ocean. This modern yet soulful looking restaurant was packed to the max on a Friday night. The menu is playful offering Contemporary-American dishes, with unique and fun presentations. I thought everything that we ordered was absolutely delicious. It was such a good dinner! I highly recommend this place. Not only is it a trendy and popular social scene in the Manhattan Beach area, the food and cocktails are so worth going for.
MOJITO…My favorite cocktail- So good!
BACON CHEDDAR BUTTERMILK BISCUITS WITH MAPLE BUTTER
Um, can this combination be any more amazing? Bacon, cheese, freshly baked biscuits with a sweet butter!? HEAVEN! I could literally make a meal out of this and cocktails and be thoroughly satisfied lol. Must order!
RED CURRY MARINATED BIG EYE TUNA TARTAR
Coconut, cucumber, peanuts, puffed rice
Unique twist on a tuna tartare. The tuna itself was fresh and delicious, but I’m a sucker for the traditional tuna tartare with avocado, wonton strips and a drizzled spicy mayo. But this take on it was a nice change. The mixture of textures and flavors worked. I’m glad I tried it!
BLISTERING BLUE LAKE GREEN BEANS
Thai basil, chili sauce, crispy pork
These were delicious! It reminded me of the spicy green beans from Yang Chow (which I’ve blogged about). They were spicy and sweet and I loved the flavor of pork in it as well. This dish makes eating vegetables fun! I recommend!
FEE FI FO FUM FRIES W/ MB POST FRY SAUCE
Giant french fries! They were huge! So fun. Can’t go wrong with this. Make sure whoever you go with are not on diets! I was practically eating all of them by myself lol.
Shrimp-ginger dumplings, katsuo dashi broth
Light & delectable. Seared to perfection with a nice flavor. A very pleasant and simple dish.
12oz SLICED RIBEYE W/ BLACK TRUFFLE BUTTER
This was my favorite of the night. The steak was cooked to perfection- medium rare. It was so tender it melted in your mouth. The truffle butter added the most amazing flavor to it too. I am obsessed with anything with truffle, so adding it to a good, flavorful rib eye is heaven to me! I love how it came out in a skillet pan too.*HIGHLY RECOMMENDED*
MAC N’ CHEESE!!!!
Rich and creamy. Loved the bread crumbs on top!
I had a great dining experience at M.B Post. It was great for a night out with my girls, and the food was delicious. I left feeling so full but so happy and satisfied lol. Nothing like an amazing dinner at a great restaurant! It’s also in a really cute part of town so there’s lots to do around there when you finish eating! It’s right across from the beach…I love Manhattan!
