Hey everybody, Im doing a menu development class now (well it's almost over) but I'm coming up with a whole restaurant concept including menus, staffing, labor and costing out recipes. Ive gotten some decent reviews of my menu from my professor, but I'd like to throw it up here and see what you all think about it. There are just one or two hyphen/spelling errors, but Ive got to get ready for class so please comment and let me know what you think. Or if you have issues with it, Im very open to suggestions. The restaurant is called Antipodes based off Aldous Huxeley's heaven and hell theme. This is the "darker" side of the menu. Oh yeah, it's basically a spicy Asian/Creole themed menu. Please feel free to look it over and use any ideas for personal use, but Id like to run with this one someday so please no jacking large portions of the menu :)

I just want to say that I've never had the opportunity to eat a quality shrimp bisque. The only bisque I've ever had was at Soup Plantation, and...well, bleah.

I have dreams of what shrimp bisque could taste like if it was good.

Wording wise I prefer garbanzo to chickpea.
