Everyone believes they were the cutest kid ever, but is it truly narcissistic of me to really think I was the most adorable?
I was reminiscing on my childhood, decided to dust off the old photo-albums and take a stroll down memory lane.
Also, I do not think that way of myself now (because adults are never as cute as children, unfortunately), but I mean come on…
I do admit though, I had a few awkward stages before five. My hair did not grow in until I was ~two years old, I mainly dressed like a Chinese boy and my mom cut my bangs by placing a piece of scotch tape horizontally across and cutting it off with scissors. You can see the unevenness in the bottom left picture, thanks mom…
Moving on, look at what I spotted while going out Friday night. Yes, it is the Creme Brûlée Cart! I know it’s going to be a good week when I get to eat creme brûlée twice in a week. I forgot that they park in the Castro late nights.
I am a traditional vanilla bean girl myself, but how can I resist a berry compote? It was as if heaven rained down, fired the torch to glaze the sugar, blew me a kiss and floated back up. As if all the evil on earth decided to take a day off and only delicious and positive energy stayed. It felt like the warmth of blowing out candles on a birthday cake with all of your favorite people surrounding you.
It was magical. I might of even went back and got another one, which would not have been too difficult because I finished it before we started the car.
I feel bad for the caprese salad pictured below because it has to compete with my ode to creme brûlée, but it also looks pretty sexy if I say so myself.
I also ate at Company on Guerrero St. over the weekend. I have been meaning to try this place because I wanted to visit a certain someone…
The decor is very…my mind draws a blank. What kind of vintage of this restaurant and logo font? Help a girl out here.
My friend Cal was our waiter! He has worked there for the longest time and I’m so thrilled to finally get a chance to experience the A++ service.
He gave us a tasting of the Crispy Confit Chicken Wings w/ red jalapeños and basil. A little too sweet for my taste but still enjoyable overall.
I was so excited when this came, the Steak Frites with parmesan-herb frites, cab reduction and chimichurri sauce. It was cooked to perfection and I almost didn’t share. The Company was offering a $25 prefix for two plates of your choice (picking between appetizer, entree and desert), so I picked a main plate and after sweets. I had to add an additional cost for the steak but I have no regrets.
Last but not least, the orange buttermilk Panna Cotta with raspberry and rose syrup.
Hate to cut this post short but Breaking Bad starts in exactly three more minutes. Wouldn’t miss it for the world!
EDIT: Just came back from watching BrBa. I don’t know how I feel.
How cute was I on a 10 scale? Also, Breaking Bad open discussion in comments (no spoilers for people who haven’t watched it yet). Feelings on this episode?
