gabbygatsby What a hot day in New England summer! Treat myself with giant ice cream in waffle cone sounds like a fantastic idea. This is extra virgin olive oil and buttermilk honey blueberry ice cream at OddFellows Ice Cream in Williamsburg, NYC. The olive oil ice cream has potent olive oil-y flavor but has a subtle hint of sweet vanilla-ish cream. The blueberry one is a favorite--- sweet, yet slightly tangy. 24h

gabbygatsby Amazing porterhouse steak for three at Peter Luger in Brooklyn, NY. Nice charred flavor on the outside, with juicy, tender meat both on loin and filet parts. 2d

gabbygatsby Homecooked: pork belly lettuce wrap, gochujang mayo, carrot-daikon pickle. The pork belly is braised in aromatic mixture of chicken stock, shiitake mushrooms, peppercorns, thyme, bay leaves, soy sauce, mirin and onions. The meat was juicy temder, while skin was crispy! Delicious food you can always make at home. 7d

gabbygatsby Smoked chocolate bread pudding; Jacobsen Salt ice cream at Alden & Harlow. I am normally very forgiving when it comes to desserts. Still, I find it hard to like what Alden & Harlow offers here. The bread pudding comes across as too smoky and too burnt for me and my company. The flavor of smokiness is just too overwhelming as if I am eating charcoal (not the most pleasant feeling for sure). We couldn't finish this thing after a couple of spoonfuls. We look at each other and mutually agree that this doesn't work for us. 1w

  •   gabbygatsby @crazeazz I wouldn't say they try too hard. Obviously a lot of trail-and-errors right here. Food is fun and they incorporate many flavors and come up with original combinations. Complicated? Maybe, but some are crazy simple as well. 1w

gabbygatsby Slow roasted beef neck; parsnips, vinegar, radishes at Alden & Harlow. Look how beautiful this dish actually is! The beef is fork tender and flavorful. The parsnip puree underneath is what I can eat a pint of-- very sweet and velvety smooth. The pickled radishes are vibrant as in both color and flavor. Very balanced dish with richness and sweet-and-sour spectrum. 1w

gabbygatsby Grilled lamb sirloin; cocoa rub, grilled carrot mash, spring green at Alden & Harlow. Medium rare! The lamb is cooked perfectly (though my friends said their pieces were a bit stringy). The cocoa rub imparts just enough depth and richness that goes well with the lamb. The carrot mash was a confusing mess, flavor- and appearance-wise. 1w

gabbygatsby Crispy Berkshire pork belly; roasted Harry's strawberries, Anson Mills grits at Alden & Harlow in Cambridge. There are many hits and misses about this dish. The pork was tender and delicious. The grits are very smooth and well seasoned. The strawberries come off as a surprise because it does not only work well with the pork but also the grits, giving the tanginess that cuts the overall richness this dish has. The pork skin, however, is not so crispy and is borderline gummy. You feel it when part of it is stuck in your teeth. Yuck. 2w

gabbygatsby Chicken fried local rabbit; celery, apple, blue cheese, chili oil at Alden & Harlow. Easily the most intricate looking dish we order. The rabbit is quite crispy and slightly gamey. I like the small salad of diced apple, shaved celery and crumbled blue cheese which can very well pass for another dish. A touch of chili oil makes this dish more exciting with its spiciness. 2w

gabbygatsby Pickled Verrill Farm corn pancakes; buttermilk, maple, shishito at Alden & Harlow. Woah pancakes! Woah popcorn! I get the connection there. Seems like breakfast gone crazy but the shishito keeps it sane (albeit a little spicier). The combination seems to work and exude fun. However I cannot get pass the fact that the pancakes are quite dry on my visit. 2w

gabbygatsby English peas & wild mushrooms; 60c egg, pine nut crumble at Alden & Harlow in Cambridge. The dish that I think represent the veggies very well. English peas are prepared in various ways: whole, sauteed and pureed. I lose track of how many mushrooms are featured in this but it seems like a bouquet. Throwing in sous vide egg sounds redundant tese days but it works well for this dish. It is delightful and delicious. Not to mention the cast iron mini pan wins my heart everytime! 3w

gabbygatsby Ubiquitous kale salad; fennel, creamy pistachio at Alden & Harlow. Such funny name! I am glad this kale salad is not the same as others. The kale comes in two forms: shredded fresh leaves and crisped ones. Talking about different textures! The pistachio is transformed into the creamy dressing that fits well with this arguably vegetarian dish. 3w

gabbygatsby Chips & three-onion dip at Alden & Harlow in Cambridge. The chips are thin and crispy, but the prize goes to the unabashedly rich onion dip that beats any dip, mayo-based or not. So the three onions here are caramelized onion (yum), shallot (yum) and scallion (hella yum). You feel the fat in every scoop of this onion-y heaven, but you cannot help it but eat more. 3w
