Highlights from a quite tasty weekend —
Whistle and Fizz. We got a black sesame latte and a yuzu mint lemonade.
Fantastic espresso pain au chocolat from Librae Bakery.
Banana bars. I hated the Misfits one (I tried another flavor from them and hated that too, will not buy again) but loved the Bob’s Red Mill.
Tuna snack plate. Crackers, bell pepper, and a packet of spicy thai chili tuna.
Our first trip (of hopefully many!) to Lady Wong. We loved the coconut pandan steamed rainbow cake.
More rainbow – I added sprinkles to my epic Hanoi Dessert Shop sundae. Bright Eyes: vanilla soft serve, hot fudge, egg custard, chocolate sesame crunch, and Vietnamese coffee over crushed ice.
Cheese plate dinner! Mini brie / bell pepper / feta dip / cheddar crisps / seasoned pretzels / chocolate sea salt almonds / beef bacon / apple pie rice cakes / extra-sharp cheddar / smoked almonds / crackers / dried apples.
A feast at Au Za’atar. We shared fried halloum with garlic, honey, and olive oil.
Plus Dalaa Mahshi, braised lamb shoulder with seasoned rice. The meat was amazing, particularly when paired with the complimentary pickles and garlic tahini.
