So, some of you may or may not know about my other food review blog, The Darling Foodie, but I’ve decided once again to merge that blog back with this one. Why? Primarily because I can’t stand WordPress. Maybe because I don’t know how to use it, maybe because it won’t let me run ads on it, or maybe because it always crashes on me when I’m uploading pictures. Either way, I’m a blogger user and I’m gonna stick to it.
Testing out something new, food reviews!: Bottega Louie
When I say “merge,” I mean post my food reviews on this blog from now on. I looked into importing my blog from WordPress to Blogger, but my goodness, that’s just something way out of my league. I do not have the patience or skill to do it.
The plus side is that there will be more posts and more food here! Thoughts?
Now to the point. Botegga Louie!
Now, I actually didn’t get to go here. My DB found this place all on his own and went while he was doing some training in the area and took these photos for me. He even created a video so that I could see the entire place (see below)! Bless his little heart.
My DB and his friend also ate lunch while they were there. They ordered some portobello mushroom fries:
And some pizza…
Not only that, he brought a couple goodies home for me!
Starting with a chocolate eclair…
and some macarons!
hazelnut, vanilla bean, some kind of berry, and banana chocolate:
Chocolate cupcake with a coffee frosting:
It didn’t travel that great, but it sure did taste great!
And here’s the video he shot for me:
Everything that I tried was above par. Although I couldn’t be at the actual store to get the whole experience, my DB made sure I got a good piece of it. This was also the first time I tried a macaron, believe it or not, and I can’t believe what I’ve been missing all my life! I need to get on that, pronto.
All of the desserts are packaged so beautifully, too. The box, the cupcake wrapping, the edible gold foil on top of the eclair… just gorgeous. I need to go for myself– I keep hearing the portobello mushroom fries and pizza are to die for.
