Hi from your local food blogger, Ella Batson! Today I will be reviewing a restraunt called Coal Mine Dragon. Right, here goes.
It was a dark and stormy night, with ghouls and zombi……Wait, no it wasn’t. I did learn however that I am a dog and my dad is a monkey on the Chinese zodiac calendar. (February 8th-happy new year!)
While we awaited the arrival of the main course, I will draw your attention to a few things. Number one, the bathroom inspection. I try to do this every time I review, because restaurants are required by law to have a bathroom. The bathroom at Wild Ginger is clean, somewhat well decorated, and well stocked. The second thing I want to draw your attention to is a second one of my phrases of praise for the atmosphere of Asian restaurants. I really like the lighting of most Asian places – dim and in the form of colored lamps hanging from the ceiling. Some restaurants even have central lighting as well.
Up next [at Amy's Donuts] is the pistachio cake donut. This donut is special because it has a cake donut instead of a glazed one. There is a mystery, because the toppings are blended so they camouflage together and you can’t tell what they are. As soon as you bite into it, you realize that there are tons of ingredients, but they aren’t overpowering. At the end, when you swallow your last bite, you can make out a gentle hint of lemon, which is the frosting. This is good with milk. This donut is a great, an honor.
