Sisters and Sweets



My not-so-little-anymore sister came into town from across the country, a cause to celebrate and to indulge even more than we already had by going to one of my favorite Cambodian restaurants, Kampuchea (which apparently split up into two parts- one being a pub-style room with "street food" dishes and the other being a more proper sit-down section). After dinner, Queridis pulled another surprise food move and introduced us to a delightful dessert bar in the East Village, ChikaLicious. It's about 6 years old, but I can't see people getting sick of it. You order according to a prix fixe menu, which changes daily, and watching the chefs prepare and plate everything right before your very eyes is itself a feast.

Our guest of honor, Gordis, ordered the Brown Sugar Panna Cotta with Granny Smith Sorbet and Calvados Agar Agar Gelee with its pairing, Moscato d'Asti, La Spinetta 2007.




Queridis ordered the Sweet Potato Brulee with Eggnog Ice Cream and Maple Spaghetti Squash, and I got the Marscapone Parfait in Citrus Gazpaccho with Black Tapioca Pearls and a Vanilla Wafer with a Brachetto d'Acqui Banfi 2007.






The amuse was a Chocolate Gelee with Coconut Sorbet, which Gordis declared tasted like Almond Joy, and the petit fours of the day were Coconut Marshmallow, Cinnamon Shortbread and a Chocolate Bourbon Truffle.




Pardon the shmaltz, but a delightful evening with both Queridis and my sister- nothing could be sweeter!

About Me

My photo
I'm an LA transplant now living in Brooklyn. I develop film projects by day, write at night, and have a dangerous predilection for vintage Robinson Golluber scarves- this blog serves as a tiny window to everything else I do when I'm not satisfying those first three passions. I'm trying to blog more and tweet less @annabelleqv. What about you?
