Highlights from an exceptionally yummy weekend…
We made dalgona iced lattes with chocolate milk. This is my favorite coffee texture.
Iced cinnamon roll from Mel The Bakery, aka the best cinnamon roll we’ve ever eaten. We regretted not buying more things and want to go back immediately.
Tres Leches x3 doughnut ice cream sandwich (tres leches ice cream sandwiched in a tres leches cake doughnut and dipped in tres leches chocolate coating!) from Doughnut Plant.
Hazelnut crunch gelato at Bambina Blue. We thought we weren’t big gelato fans but this spot has changed our tune.
Topo Chico has officially 100% sold me on alcoholic seltzers. These cans are delicious.
We had a wonderfully good lunch at The Tyger.
I had a Tyger Strype Slushee – Espolòn tequila, Shoumei white tea, peach, lemon, and smoke layered with Espolòn tequila, mango, lemon, honey, and cardamon.
Also a non-alcoholic Green Woods Laugh – mint, pandan, cucumber, and lemon – with Tito’s.
We shared hamachi crudo with Vietnamese salsa verde, coconut, microgreens, and cherry tomato.
Chicken satay with the most interesting/layered peanut sauce I’ve ever tasted.
Stir-fried water spinach with chili, garlic, and shrimp paste.
And Pad See Ew with Chinese broccoli and tofu. The tofu was a salt and pepper crusted silken tofu and it was fantastic.
Plus a Thai coffee tart with a bruleed top for dessert.
Dinner salads. Local butter lettuce with balsamic vinaigrette, mint, peas, lamb sausage, and raw milk aged cheddar. I see why the lamb + mint + pea pairing is a classic.
