huckleberry

although i usually like to hold off on the post until i check out a restaurant at least twice or more, i decided that from now on i will try to have more entries and have them get updated as i go!

today, i want to introduce you to huckleberry bakery & cafe
it's been on my yelp bookmark for a while but i only just recently got to try it!
even before going, i was expecting good things--from their reviews AND since it is a sister restaurant of my very favorite ice cream place sweet rose creamery, which happened to be my very first review as well (you can find my review right here
as the wife of the huckleberry learned to bake at tartine bakery in san francisco, which was one of my favorite bakeries, i knew also knew that their baked goods were going to be over-the-top! everything served at huckleberry is made on site using the best quality ingredients,  including organic flour, vahlrona chocolate and farmer's market produce

at huckleberry bakery & cafe, you order first and then find your seat 
so choose from their homemade artisan breads, morning pastries, breakfast items, soups, salads, sandwiches, rotisserie chickens and deck oven flatbread pizza and so on from their chalk board [menu]

since i didn't know what to order, as literally everything looked so delicious, i asked for recommendations (fried egg sandwich, warm creekstone farm's brisket plate and brussel sprouts) & surely...i absolutely loved them! 


since everything i tried was "henven-in-my-mouth", i am already excited to go back and try more goodies! i also heard that their brunch is amazing ;)
i promise that i will make sure to update after trying more things! 

i am now happilyfull ♥ 
see you on my next adventure!

quick recap of my birthday

T.G.I.F. everyone!

although getting another year older is a scary thing, i actually felt okay this year! and my friends made my birthday extra special with so much love~~~

i honestly would not prefer being any younger if i had to go back to where i was at the age, because i like who i am now-

pâtisserie chantilly


one of my favorite dessert places is pâtisserie chantilly
i have a soft spot for cakes & my favorite sweets are definitely japanese pastries or french pastries
so, since pâtisserie chantilly has both japanese/french touches to their goodness, i can't help but to love them . . .

as written on their website
chan.til.ly (shaàNte yée) is a sweetened whipped cream. the name for this cream is said to have originated from the ancient white castle in france, chateau de chantilly. 

pastry chef keiko nojima has created a patisserie dedicated in satisfying the palettes of all types of pastry lovers. whether it is a traditional cheesecake or a unique french-style pastry with a japanese touch, she is committed to bring out the best qualities of each ingredient, some of which are imported from japan. always striving to produce only high-quality pastries, every detail is carefully handcrafted by the chef. all of the pastries are guaranteed to be made fresh daily with no additives or preservatives.
enjoy them with a delicious cup of crema coffee--brewed with premium espresso beans imported from italy--or a warm cup of english tea or japanese green tea

honestly, everything i've tried from here have been A-mazing!!!
here's the menu for you to get a glimpse of-
my pick? although it's hard to just pick one, i highly recommend their [black sesame cream puff] which is just as amazing as beard papa's but with a twist-


. . . because i couldn't take photos of all that i've tried
and i still need few more i need to try myself . . . 
here are more photos of delicious pastry goods from  pâtisserie chantilly from their website

 

you can also find more photos on their facebook
they are open wed-sun and some mondays, so make sure to check before heading out there!
i've had the mistakes of just dropping by to see them closed which made me very sad-

so if you are the area
or if you want some quality dessert that will bring "party in your mouth", check this place out- 

i am now happilyfull ♥ 
see you on my next adventure!
