Sometimes, you go to a restaurant you’ve been wanting to try and, as luck would have it, you end up there at a time where you can’t really indulge in a full meal. I finally made it to Fatty Crab with some friends after the second of the two recent Tori Amos shows at the Beacon Theater for dessert and drinks. Their only dessert items are two chocolate bars. I thought they were being “nice restaurant” cute in their naming of the dish, but oh no, they are actually just that – chocolate bars. With a $6 price tag.
There’s the milk chocolate – ginger, puffed rice, & crisped rice. There’s also the dark chocolate – roasted almonds, chili, & Maldon sea salt. The milk chocolate was ok – the ginger was too subtle to almost notice it was there. The dark chocolate was far better, with the chili adding a pronounced punch.
Perhaps I chose to do myself in with my drink selection – the Chupacabra, which was chili-infused tequila blanco, fresh watermelon juice, and ginger liqueur. A little spicy to pair, but excellent as well. I’d like to go back and try the food. Anyone been there?
And more interested to know, what’s the most expensive candy bar you’ve ever eaten?
