Birthday Outtakes, Part 2: Pretty Polynesian at Mother of Pearl
Mother of Pearl on the LES is such a pretty place. I was happy to join a group of old friends to celebrate getting older.
The scrumptious Char Sui Buns with roasted mushroom and celery root and fresno chile. Sweet and succulent. Is there nothing more perfect than a well-balanced bao?
Togarashi Fries: saffron and black garlic topped perfectly crispy shoestring fries with a melody of creamy and spicy dipping sauces.
Pickled Vegetable Spring Rolls with a sweet chili dipping sauce. Fried perfection.
Deep-fried Tropical Guacamole with plantain chips
A birthday layer cake from By Chloe makes my birthday official.
