Alright, y’all. So I made a pact with myself that I would catch up on some blogging today. Lo and behold….
Yup. I’m at Kudu. What can I say? I love their free wi-fi and iced peppermint soy mochas. (My apologies about the goofy picture. Far too much caffeine today between this and the Turkish coffee I had this morning at Cafe Paridiso. My eye is literally twitching.)
So I was thinking that maybe I’ll just put up some pictures of food that I’ve taken in the past (that are still living on my camera) and tell you how wonderful they all are. Deal?
First off, let’s go on a field trip to Cru Cafe. Ohhhh Cru, what would I do without you? Combine the fact that they’re open for both lunch and dinner and the fact that you know I have a propensity to prefer to dine out for lunch, one would assume based on the transitive property that I would like to dine at Cru more for lunch. Which would be an incorrect assumption. Sorry to totally throw y’all off guys but seriously, their dinner is just too good for me to not call them on it. Par exemple…
Apologies for the relatively crappy picture above. The lighting above our table wasn’t really all that substantial and the picture didn’t come out as well as I hoped. However, what was on the plate was fab. Pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon served atop roasted squash. It’s actually what they’ve replaced the pork chop with (or it was last I checked) which is fine. If you’re getting rid of a pork item why not replace it with yet another pork item. Oh, and everyone loves bacon. Argue all you want but the fact still remains that if there is vegan bacon, one can assume that even people that don’t eat meat still crave the delicious pork product.
Moving right along.
Bunny’s fried oyster salad. I once again apologize for the quality of the picture because it looks freakin atrocious, y’all. That has no comment on the taste of it by the by. Those fried oysters are pretty close to heaven as far as fried oysters go. I have heard that Anson has some delicious fried oysters but I have yet to partake. Honestly, I have yet to find a salad with oysters that I like as much as this one. I have tried Fleet Landing’s and it was pretty damn, I must say. It’s no Cru salad. But a very close second nonetheless.
Le tiramisu. It reminds me of being a young lassie in the glorious state of New Jersey because I’m sure that you know at this point (if you’re a regular to CC) that Italian is my comfort food. My mom used to always make tiramisu and this tasted pretty damn close to her homemade recipe. Honestly, I wasn’t sure if anyone south of Maryland could make it properly but John Zucker hath proved me wrong yet again.
Alright, so I’m realizing that this task was more tedious than I previously thought so I’m going to end this post and start another one. Right now. Tootles!
