Brunch picnic in Dolores Park. Pavan and I picked up some tea cakes and quiche from the popular Tartine bakery (James Beard Award for Outstanding Pastry Chef 2008). I dread long lines, but it went relatively quickly. I usually don’t eat baked goods, but these were delightful. I never use the word “delightful,” but I just did.
Zzalgern0n picked up this awesome looking pastry ball filled with rice, called a Ohzi Al-Sham from Ali Baba’s Cafe. He thought it was bland. I tasted it and agreed. It could use some sauce or chutney.
After the park, I got a mango kulfi pop from Bombay Ice Creamery. They say they make the kulfi even though it comes in a pre-packaged wrapper. Very creamy. They also sell many Indian ice cream flavors like pistachio, saffron rose, cardamon and chai.
