Dayton OH: The Killer Brownie from Dorothy Lane Market

When I checked in at the hotel, the staff member told me that if I was going to dinner in Oakwood, I had to stop by Dorothy Lane for their killer brownie---named top 10 in the U. S. I reminded her that my mom was in the competition but that I would be sure to try it.

I didn’t realize that Killer Brownie is the official name of the dish. This brownie is indeed impressive. It is both much thicker than the typical brownie. It is also very dense---most cakey brownies are not this dense. The taste is very flavorful but not overwhelming. A layer of nuts and caramel is buried in the middle.

This brownie has great taste and provides a wonderful sense of indulgence. Mom, your crown is secure, but this killer brownie is pretty good.

Serious Spices

During our Bengali breakfast session, Milu showed me her spice tray. All the spices here are whole and unground, allowing them to stay fresh for longer. She explained that this type of tray is standard issue in Indian kitchens. But the tray only her first line of defense in her never-ending war against boring food. This is her pantry. You can see the vast array of spices and flavorings that make up the core of her stock. I can't think of a better illustration of the palate of flavors that make up Indian cuisine.

Brooklyn: Ganso

When I hit the ground in Brooklyn, I was in the mood for something fast and fun. I decided to try this small, hip ramen shop. I ordered the traditional miso ramen. I enjoyed the slightly salty broth and the firm, toothy noodles. The egg and pork belly provided a nice spot of protein. It was a satisfying meal for a cold winter evening.

Tucker: Monterrey

This restaurant, part of a regional chain, has been in the neighborhood for untold ages. Its feel is cozy and welcoming. The staff is very nice. I ordered an interesting dish, pork and cheese on a sizzling platter. The cheese makes this a very different dish from fajitas. The cheese browns and crisps up, putting a real spin on the pork. The browned cheese complements the sweetness of the pork to make a very umami dish.
