Or go for the Market Menu for tasters of all the above (except the lemonade, which is to die for!). Lunch specials at the Market as well, or the 50 minutes $20 power lunch downstairs in the Lobby Lounge, which has more hearty food. Business casual.

Leslie Stowe’s Cranberry Hazelnut Raincoast Crisps
with Brie cheese. Brie cheese goes with all the crisps, but she doesn’t mention it to go with the sweeter cranberry hazelnut selection, though I think it’s even more delicious.

As Snobby can attest to, Haagen-Dazs ice cream ranks pretty high on my list of worthwhile calories. And I’ve fallen madly in love with their vanilla caramel latte ice cream. Theres something about the coffe icecream with a hint of caramel that does a body good.
I rate it in the same catergory as sticky toffee pudding, tasty as hell but not everyday. As for that old friend that I’ve re-found, its all thanks to Snobby and her rare find in the supermarket…she managed to find me a tub of Baileys ice cream. The folks at Haagen-Dazs must have heard my complains from across the Pacific! At least now people won’t think I’m a complete tard, saying that Bailey ice cream is my favorite…most out here in their igloos haven’t tasted it nor seen this rare specimen. If you’ve never tried it before please, for your fat-cells-sake go out and get some! Its rich, creamy, like scooping frozen Bailey’s, but the ice-cream only contains 4% of the liquer. It’s bloody amazing so much so, that the hunt is on to find more!!

Yes, you read it correctly. Orgasmic cheese… not organic.

Went to the Alibi Room last night and had the cheese platter. There was this nondescript semi soft cheese paired with a pile of roasted organic hazelnuts. I spread, took a bite, popped a hazelnut and 3 seconds later it was a nutty orgasm in my mouth. I have NEVER had such a reaction to any cheese before, and it beats out my current fave Beecher’s Flagship by miles.

The Tomme Gros Ille (Quebec) can be found at Mount Pleasant Cheese (new place, May 08) that specializes in Canadian Cheese.

  1. Golden Grahams and Honey Bunches of Oats (only original or almonds)
  2. Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup and McDonalds Sausage Egg McMuffin

Sure Mcdonalds tells you that their Sausage Egg McMuffin pairs well with breakfast beverages such as coffee, tea, juice or even milk. But did you know that it does especially well with Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup? It was like a sensory epiphany at lunch today.
