Spot Dessert Bar

19 May

Spot Dessert Bar is a restaurant serving only desserts and beverages that are mix of American and asian flavors. They have created really unique and exotic flavors.

We ordered the choose the soft cheesecake which consists of passion fruit, blueberry, walnut, and maldon salt. This was my favorite.

My sister chose the Yuzu Eskimo which is Black berry, Rasberry, Oreo and Chocolate. It was a little too sour for my tastes, but she enjoyed it.
Lastly, my boyfriend ordered the Ovaltine Panna Cotta which is Banana, Fresh Milk foam, and spiced Caramelized Popcorn. This was also just okay for me, but he loved it.

Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. I’m not sure how I feel about these asian american desserts. They were all just okay for me. But I love the concept of having a dessert bar and only serving dessert…suchh a good idea.

Sarabeths

19 May

My sister always talks about this place. She is obsessed with their almond crusted french toast. She can’t stop talking about it. Therefore, I had to try this place out.

I ordered the farmers omelette which consisted of leeks, ham, chunks of potato and gruyere. This was one of the best omelettes I have ever had. It was super fluffy and melted in my mouth. Unlike any other omelette I have ever had.

My boyfriend ordered the jumbo lump crab cake sandwich. I took a few bites. I was so delicious. I was kinda jealous.

My sister ordered the fat and fluffy french toast because the almond one is only served on weekends I guess.

Everything was amazing as expected.

Dylan’s Candy Bar

19 May

Dylan’s candy bar is heaven on earth. It has each and every candy imaginable. I think my boyfriend and I spend hours in this store because I couldn’t decide what I wanted to buy. I didn’t want to spend $50 on candy. That would have been ridiculous.

I’m a big Adam fan so I was happy to find out what his favorite candies are 😉 But I was not so happy to find out that they were good and plenty.

Fun Fact: This candy store is owned by Dylan Lauren, the daughter of Ralph Lauren.

Last time I went, the café upstairs wasn’t open but I heard that recently it opened up. Next time i’ll make sure to go check that out. It looks so cute. On the site it says that the café has frozen yogurt and ice cream in unique flavors like ruggelah and candy bar blast. I can’t wait to try these out!

Dallas BBQ

19 May

I first heard about this place from my friend. I wanted to go here because I love bbq food and also because they have texas sized margaritas which I love even more.

My boyfriend ordered the texas-sized mango marg. We were surprised to find that they serve their margaritas with an extra shot in a tube.

I ordered the bbq baby back ribs with cornbread and baked potato. It was amazing.

The bf ordered the texas hot dog. He said it was delicious and tasted kinda like chipolata or a french sausage.

Incredible meal. Everything was delicious. I have no complaints

Max Brenner

18 May

Max Brenner restaurant and chocolate store is one of the most innovative restaurants I have ever encountered. The numerous ways in which he transforms chocolate is incredible and inventive. He is a chocolate genius.

Max Brenner est un restaurant et un conserver de chocolat le plus innovante que j’ai jamais rencontré. Les nombreux de moyens dont il transforme le chocolat est incroyable et innovante. Il est une génie de chocolat.

To start off, my sister, my boyfriend and I each got the burgers which were good, but not what we came for.

Pour commencer, ma soeur, mon copain, et moi, nous avons tous pris les hamburgers qui étaient bon, mais pas la raison pour laquelle on est venu.

Finally for dessert, we ordered the Chocolate Chunk Pizza with chocolate, peanut butter, and marshmallows. I was on a sugar high.

Fun Fact: This pizza was shown on Food Network’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate/Pizza.”

Finalement pour le dessert, on a commandé le pizza chocolat avec du chocolat, du beurre d’arachide, et des guimauves.

Un fait plaisir: Cette Pizza était montré dans le série de télévision, “The Best Thing I Ever Ate/Pizza” sur le Food Network.

We also decided to try the smores fondue.

Aussi, on a décidé d’essayer la fondue de smores.

It was delish.
