A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

I’ve been to Casa B once before. This time, we sat upstairs and had a totally different experience. Our waiter was amazing – great service, good suggestions, a really nice guy.

They bring fried plantains to the table to snack on.

I decided to try their raspberry lime rickey that was both sweet and tart!

The only thing that I had last time that we repeated was the cheese plate – it’s too good to pass up. The dulce de leche is so delicious you (I) find yourself scraping at the wooden board for every last bite.

The albondingas ($10) are organic beef meatballsin guava + tomato sauce. A little sweet and a little savory – a really nice combination.

The sandwich de pollo ($10) was grilled free range chicken thighs, sautéed onions, crispy shallots + grandma’s ketchup. This dish was a little  messy to eat (I still can’t figure out how I was trying to be lady like and cut it and then it ended up all over my shirt…thank goodness I had a jacket!) but it was probably my favorite. The chicken was well seasoned and the sauteed onions were a nice contrast to the crispy shallots.

The choripan ($16) is chorizo and guava wrapped in puff pastry. We joked with our waiter that it’s kind of like a gourmet pig in a blanket. I love the sweetness of the guava paired with the smoky and salty chorizo and the buttery puffy pastry tied it all together nicely.

IMG_2016Of course we HAD to have the ice cream sandwiches ($12) – they won’t be on the menu for much longer. This time, I paced myself through my meal so that I would have enough room for dessert. The cookie on the rum raisin sandwich was delicious.

IMG_2017Of course I loved everything about the pistachio ice cream sandwich – the cookie was salty and delicious.

IMG_2019The chocolate hazelnut was SO rich!
