Creamistry Palo Alto Opening PREVIEW

Everyone in the Bay Area is probably familiar with Smitten Ice cream, where the ice cream is made-to-order  using liquid Nitrogen.

Creamistry is a version of a liquid Nitrogen ice creamery. I am all too familiar with them because it is from SoCal. Finally, they are opening their first location in the Bay Area in Palo Alto.

I love having the option of choosing the base. I went for organic Straus so I could be a little healthier. But then again, I ordered the double, which was giant. HA HA. I noticed that the ice cream is usually super silky and smooth when it is made with liquid Nitrogen and Creamistry’s texture was ON POINT.

There are so many flavors and toppings to choose from (over 70+!). I, of course, got so many toppings because I like options. I got fresh strawberries and bananas, marshmallow cream, Fruity Pebbles, and a waffle cone. I added fresh fruit, so it’s healthy, right?

I wanted to try the edible chocolate bowl, but those weren’t available yet. A side of brownie is also an option with your ice cream.

I also tried a cookies ‘n cream NitroShake with mini M&M’s mixed in garnished with some minis and chocolate shavings.

This month features snacks from Sweden, France, Thailand, Spain, and Portugal.

I really liked the Thai Taro Chips. They are baked, not fried.  The chips had a super crispy texture with a slightly sweet and buttery taste; something that I found addicting. The buttery-ness comes from the palm oil that they use. Let me know which was your fave!

Fiorella: Sneak Peek NEW Brunch

FIRST POST!

I had the opportunity to preview a part of  Fiorella‘s new brunch menu.

The highlight of my meal was this banana bread toast with coconut cream! Looks like your average toast, but the twist is that it’s actually banana bread. If you love banana bread and coconut, like I do, then this is definitely the dish to getfiorella spread.

Every dish was pretty (VERY photogenic), but it was also well balanced. What more do you expect from Chef Dante Cecchini, ex-chef de cuisine of Marlowe?

 It’s a great new addition to the Richmond District.  And I would definitely come back to try their dinner menu items.

Leave comments/requests below. I am always looking to improve my site.
