Highlights from this week included great homemade dinners and tons of best-in-their-game-good desserts!
Freddo cappuccino from The Grand.
Coquito iced latte from 787.
We had a giant, insanely good meal at Sunday in Brooklyn. Honeybear on Holiday – rum, Montenegro, sherry, apricot, pineapple, lime, cumin, and honey.
The Tiger Prince – Indian single malt whiskey, pandan, coconut, curry leaves, and lime.
Warm crab and artichoke dip with crusty bread.
Wood roasted mushrooms with salsa verde, peanuts, coriander, and spring greens.
Herb-crusted roasted chicken with butter lettuce and fries with za’atar, chili flakes, and spicy mayo.
Our dinners at home this week were great thanks to the best flour tortillas and a big batch of homemade salsa (loosely based on this recipe). Quesadillas with Oaxaca cheese and sharp cheddar (and salsa and plain Greek yogurt) plus shishito peppers.
Plus flan from Bushwick Taco Company.
And a homemade soursop frozen margarita!
Turkey tacos with ground meat sautéed with poblano pepper and orange yellow bell pepper plus cheese, yogurt, and salsa.
Chilaquiles – salsa, poblano and bell pepper, homemade baked tortilla chips and pico de gallo chips, plus tons of cheese – topped with fried eggs, shredded chicken thighs, yogurt, and hot sauce.
This mochi chocolate chip cookie from Cha An Bon Bon is one of my favorite things I’ve eaten this year! The crispy, slightly savory cookie was the perfect foil for the mochi.
Crepe cake with salted milk foam, boba, and brown sugar syrup from Prince Tea House.
Oddfellows Ice Cream – saffron passionfruit ice cream with apricot and pistachio plus chocotorta (cream cheese ice cream with dulce de leche and chocolate cookie crumb (<–my new favorite flavor!))
Kitsby dessert bar blew our minds. We came for (and loved!) the salted egg yolk lava cake.
But were head over heels for The King – durian cream brulee with banana ice cream, brown butter shortbread, and herbal jelly. If you’re a durian fan in NYC I recommend getting this immediately!
Have a great week!
