The Pimiento main dining room menu (MDR) on Royal Caribbean looks really good, and I was cheering for it to be great. In the end, it was fine. This post is the last in my series about MDR menus on our June/July 2017 cruise, and I was generally impressed with the high quality of the food. Sadly, this meal was just OK.
I started with the arancini. Fried rice balls are a favorite treat of mine, so I was disappointed to receive what very much tasted like it had been pulled out of the freezer. They weren’t bad but there just wasn’t anything special about them.
The same thing applied with the garlic tiger shrimp I ordered for my entree. They tasted fine, but it was all rather bland. Happily, the dessert menu featured one of my favorite things.
Bread and butter pudding is one of the principal reasons I am OK with being fat. It tastes amazing, and this was a bit dry without a lot of flavor. Nothing on this dinner menu was bad, and the service was fantastic. Still, the Royal Caribbean main dining room menu changes a little each night. This was one of the two nights I might have considered dining in a specialty restaurant.
