Sublime desserts at Kyotofu

[Translate] On Tuesday night, I went to Kyotofu with Kim for an evening dessert tasting invitation by one of the co-owners, Nicole Bermensolo. Those of you who have read my daytime dessert flight at Kyotofu a month or so ago, the menu is slightly different during the evenings. I just love how they used the candles to dimly light the room. Here’s part of the evening menu… (more…)

A Day of Baked Goods and Fooding: A Girls' Day Out

[Translate] This is the second, separate post for something that has taken 6 1/2 hours of hanging out with a lot of my girlfriends. This post will be about the fooding portion of the day; the macaron hunt was the previous one. Got it? Good. Sunday morning was the plan that Robyn and I have our macaron hunt/fooding for the past few weeks. The insane thing I told her and all of my friends was that we’re going to meet at Silver Moon Bakery by 9 AM! As preposterous as it is for me to get my behind from Queens..

It’s been a few years since I’ve been to the Doughnut Plant and if memory serves me well, it was inspiring that Mark Isreal (the guy who owns and created the place) created innovative, gourmetized flavors for a donut. But I didn’t like the texture too well. It was too chewy, a bit dense, and leathery. But that’s my opinion… As most of you know, I frequent Bouchon Bakery and Caffe Falai pretty often as of recent. Last time when I visited Caffe Falai..

Seasonal Desserts from Bouchon Bakery

[Translate] I know those of you who have been reading my blog for a while are probably getting weary of me due to the fact that every week I’m bound to write something about Bouchon. Well, at least it’s all about desserts. Yeess…the sugary goodness that Bouchon actually excel in most parts (the exclusion is the disappointing French macarons). Since this is about their seasonal stuff, let’s start cracking.
