Plan “C”

Zia Cafe, new owner (about a year now), new chef (same time). When the changeover happened, The Cat and The Mouse were a little discombobulated. Some staple menu items were dropped, items were added with higher cost. The chef use to run the kitchen at a high-end wine bar, his menu mods kinda reflected his past pedigree. (The Mouse’s opinion).

For dinner, The Cat and The Mouse were heading to the neighborhood Japanese/Pho restaurants (one of our go-to’s) but they closed for the holiday. Sigh.

Plan B, chop suey house. But we were last there last week.

Plan C, a detour. Zia Cafe. Try try, revisit.

Penne Pasta Primavera

Penne Pasta Meat Sauce

Good basic bowls. The Cat and The Mouse’s new strategy for the cafe, stick to the basics, not the fancy stuff.

Highpoint of the dinner was the desserts.

Ube Cookies and Cream Gelato & Strawberry Guava Sorbet

One with dairy, one without, Mmm!

Be safe and well.

Final installment, dessert.

Frozen Kona geisha coffee pie: black chocolate crust, manjari chocolate crunch, burnt hazelnut custard, vanilla bean whipped cream, nutella powder. Think mudd pie, but different. it was good, but The Mouse thinks The Cat still likes mudd pie better.

Strawberry yuzu sorbet with fruit and cereal crunchies. The Mouse was happy. 🙂
