Salted Caramel

Earl grey ice cream rocks at Salted Caramel, salted caramel ironically not so much.

Chocolate sorbet is intensely chocolaty, avocado rather mild, Horlicks Tim Tam a fanciful childhood flavour, and hazelnut very ferrero rocher-ish.

All in all, a neat boutique with freshly made ice cream that I don’t mind going back to! : )

More Tex-Mex than pure Mex, Baja Fresh has a selling point of fresh quality food made from scratch. Sounds good on paper, except that the flavours are not as bold as I’d like and prices are a tad high for such a Subway-ish concept, hmm.

Free flow Salsa Molcajete, Salsa 6 Chiles, Salsa Baja and my favourite Pico De Gallo from the salsa bar, to go along with the complimentary chips.

Cheese nachos ($11.95).

Shrimp and mahi mahi tacos ($6.95 each).

Grilled shrimp fajita ($13.95), served with simmered pinto beans (which I dig), rice (which I didn’t want), creamy guacamole..

And corn tortillas too!

Wild Honey-ed Again

Went back to Wild Honey the other day (on a mission to try out all the items on the menu, haha) and wow, another great find I had!

Loving Tunisian a lot, a mouthwatering concoction of tangy-spicy shakshouka (tomatoes, onions, bell peppers etc) and two lovely fried eggs with gooey yolks, all served up in a cast iron pan with multigrain brioche on the side to mop up all that delish sauce, yums max.

And for something less exotic, there’s reliable Basque. Scrambled eggs with peppers and onions, paired with Spanish Serrano ham and brioche.

Simple food, simple happiness : )
