Oh My God

Agate Alley is known for quite a few things–Mac and Cheese that is well worth the $9 they charge for it, an extensive cocktail list, outside seating and local food–but the creme brulee is worthy of its own blog post.

Creme Brulee, Agate Alley

Of course the best part of dessert at Agate Alley is that the waiters don’t complain when you order dessert early, because after all who knows when they’re going to die?

The creme brulee comes in a porcelain ramekin set on a plate, accompanied by a soup spoon. Specks of sugar that escaped the hand torch (also known as a butane torch) massacre line the rim

of the dish. The caramelized sugar easily breaks under the spoon, revealing the simple, vanilla flavored custard. In itself the custard is light and full of creamy flavor but not rich or overwhelming by any means. It is a dessert easily finished by one but that could be shared between two lovers on a date.

Moreover, this dish is very reasonably priced, even for a college student.

  1. I’m diggin’ your blog, and now I understand what you meant by “if there’s food I’m there”!
    This was my favorite part of your post: “Of course the best part of dessert at Agate Alley is that the waiters don’t complain when you order dessert early, because after all who knows when they’re going to die?” So true.

  2. That is a great looking creme brulee. If you are looking to make one yourself, I have done one with basil. If you steep the basil in the creme before you complete the custard… it is fabulous. Happy eating!
