Salted Caramel Bread Pudding

I had this as my birthday dessert to myself. All this can be enjoyed at B Sweet Dessert Bar .

Lechón Kiwali

There is a Filipino food stall at Grand Central Market and i went there last Sunday.

At $15 it wasn’t cheap for a bowl of rice, meat and vegetables. The pork belly was cooked properly. I was very pleased with it. The fried egg was cooked as I like and the pickled vegetables complemented the rich and fatty pork.

There was a decent amount of pork served. I also ordered their highly rated coconut pie. The pie was a coconut custard with shredded coconut added throughput. It was good.

I had a calamansi soda to drink. The calamansi juice was not 100% fresh, but it wasn’t awful.

Flan de Elote

I was in Mexico City a few days ago and I thought I’d try a local dessert.

Usually I don’t like vegetables in dessert, but technically chocolate comes from a bean, so I ordered this corn flan in a cafe overlooking Alameda Central, the big park in the center of Ciudad de México.

The corn flavor was present, but it did seem out of place. The flan was evenly cooked but a little dry. I like flan to be a little eggy, I’m not sure how authentic that is. More caramel would have made me happier as well.

After having the flan and a latte I went to the Diego Rivera Mural Museum.

Mexico City is beautiful and safe and there are plenty of museums and good restaurants to make anyone happy.
