Bone chilling insanity

After a full morning outdoors, we tried cooling off, in Phoenix, with delicious Taiwanese snow.  Its kind of like shaved ice, only it’s shaved ice cream; topped with fresh fruit and creamy tasty toppings, such as the “cream with black sesame seeds” flavor I choose to compliment my coconut shaved cream, which was topped with mango chunks.

It’s was so delicious I went delirious (see photo above).

I’ll be posting about this fun bone chilling spot soon, so be forewarned,  because addiction is in your near future, after you get a taste of this mind blowing treat.

Thankfully it’s right nextdoor  to a place that already holds my heart.

EAT: Bread + Butter Atlantic City, NJ

One of the busiest places inside the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, at any given time of the day, is Bread + Butter. Its the best place for a quick bite or a gourmet beverage. Their griddled sandwiches are packed with tasty eats. Best of all, breakfast is served all day. If your in the mood for something sweet, you’re in for a sweet delight. All of their desserts are made on the premises and look like they flew them in directly from Paris, France.

Its a counter-style restaurant, so you order first and then seat yourself. When your food is prepared especially for you, they will bring it out to your table. The seating area is very airy and open. Bread + Butter is located in the vicinity of the Music Box Theater at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

I have enjoyed the waffles served with strawberries, whipped cream and gooey maple syrup; the only thing missing was MORE! The waffle wasn’t too soggy, but instead a tab bit crispy on the outer edges; just how I like them. The strawberries were sweet, definitely in season-lucky me! Its not a big serving, so next time I might just order two.

On a previous visit to Bread + Butter, I ordered the taylor ham & egg sandwich. It consisted of two scrambled eggs + taylor ham on a kaiser roll. I wasn’t too impressed with this sandwich, as it seemed a little to dry. It definitely should have had a slice of cheese on it. The taylor ham was a little too rich for my tastes without the calming effect of cheese. For the price, in the Borgata, you cannot go wrong; but next time i’m ordering cheese too!

I’m a sucker for corn muffins! So its no shock that Bread + Butter has me addicted to theirs. Its served sliced in half and slathered with butter, then grilled. Even though their muffins are grilled, they are so moist! Each muffin will cost you $3.50 for a little bite of heaven.

This past weekend I tried their grilled portobello and provolone sandwich. It was created with roasted portobello mushroom, roasted tomato and provolone cheese for only $8.50. The only bad thing about this sandwich were the butter pickles served along side. I tried to eat one, but couldn’t go through with it. The portobello mushroom was perfectly cooked, not to hard and not too mushy; it was so meaty, I forgot I was eating a mushroom. I love roasted tomato and this was a perfect pairing for the cheese and portobello. The cheese was gooey and perfectly melted on the bread, which was lightly toasted to a golden perfection, with a hint of butter.

Their desserts are out of this world. I was eyeing the banana nut bread, all the muffins and the tarts, but decided against one, as this was only breakfast!  Brian on the other hand chose the fruit tart. The fruit tart was laden with blueberries, apples, strawberries and a piece of star fruit. After tasting the star fruit, we decided that it was derived from a cross between apples, pineapples and kiwi (but we don’t know for sure!). All the fruit was piled atop a custard, which sat atop a layer of icing, which lined the flaky crust. Brian ate the fruit and custard topping, after which I indulged in the delicious and cookie like crust. It was so hard, but surprisingly flaky at the same time. When I bit down on it, it melted in my mouth. Beautiful, fresh, sweet and flaky for only $6.50.

No matter the time, you will definitely find something to satisfy your craving at Bread + Butter, no matter what time of the day.
