Mom and I popped by town for a quick lunch yesterday. We got there a bit past 2pm, and they only had a limited lunch menu :(
Nonetheless, we were each satisfied with our choice, mom had a prosciutto and salami panini with fries. I didn’t try her panini, but those fries are sooo awesome, the best part is the deep-fried sage and parsley tossed into the mix.
My panini was pretty simple and straightforward: roasted eggplant, tomatoes, caramelized onions and boursin. I really like the bread the use for the panini, though have no idea whether they bake in house or outsource…thin, crusty, a high crust to innards ratio. Notice I opted for the Ma’o salad over fries? Yes, my mom thinks I’m starting to fall on the chubby side so she kindly suggested I get a salad. After the ‘maybe you need a boyfriend‘ talk, I’ve lost the will to argue. But I ate most of her fries :)
I find that lunch service is always pretty lousy no matter what time of the day I go. Waiters at dinner seem to be much more attentive…

The idea of tea arriving at my door step through a subscription service has always been exciting. Recently I had something almost more exciting come to my door….a chocolate subscription box! Similar to a tea subscription, this box arrived with a selection of chocolate bars from makers all over the world to discover. I was gifted a Kekao Boxand it blew me away! My box consisted of 5 premium specialty crafted dark chocolate bars and I immediately had to steep some teas and get pairing. Chocolate and tea pairings allow you to experience more flavours from both. For best results, using both high quality tea and high quality chocolate is recommended. Luckily, that was all I found in the Kekao monthly chocolate box.
