Ok ok, really this is the last time I will talk about Matt’s this summer. 🙂
I am not much of a cake person so I wanted some bread pudding. Gathered a small group, my cousins, my coworkers, and my friend Pat, all whom have never been to Matt’s before. I was pretty excited to share this experience with them.
By the way, found the pike place flag featuring the illustrated interpretation of me on our way there! I was pretty excited. Back story here.
I apologize in advance that I did not want to take the time to take nice photos of the food just because I wanted to enjoy myself, but here we go:
I ordered myself a fancy glass of wine (apparently it was worth $18). I wanted it because it had crushed rose petals in it. I can’t even remember the name. How useless am I. Here is Pat being fancy and me laughing at him.
Of course then there was bread pudding. Which I did not take photos of because I’ve eaten it a million times now. We should note that there was Strawberry Shortcake on the dessert menu. Strawberry Shortcake is my absolute favorite, so I felt torn between that and the bread pudding. But Pat helped me out by ordering the Strawberry Shortcake so I could have Bread Pudding and we could share. Turns out the Strawberry Shortcake was not what we had envisioned at all and was a bit dissapointing. It tasted great, it was just not what we were expecting. We wanted light fluffy cake with fresh fruit. Instead it was a creative interpretation of Strawberry Shortcake. A biscuit with strawberry and lemon sorbet. Sprinkled with candied blackberries. Again, it tasted fine, it just wasn’t what we wanted. But I was ok with that. Earlier today, my coworkers brought in strawberry shortcake for my birthday. 🙂
It was a good day. Thanks Matt’s for treating us so well and for a very lovely birthday dinner.
