The theme for this weekend ended up being “eating not-so-good-for-you food”. Part of our dinner tonight was green (spinach) smoothies, in order to make up for it!
It all started when we drove to Huntington Beach to deliver dinner for a family with a new baby. To make the most of our driving time, I thought it would be prudent to try out a couple of places that have been on my mental list of places to try.
First, we went to Da Hawaiian Kitchen in Huntington Beach to try the famous Chili Peppa Chicken. We ordered one “regular” and one “spicy garlic”. This chicken had the crispiest skin ever, and was quite flavorful, too.
Afterward we went to Afters Ice Cream in Fountain Valley. This place is known for Milky Buns, which is basically a donut ice cream sandwich. We opted for a glazed donut with strawberry crunch ice cream and sweet cornflake cereal. Yes, we shared one for the four of us, so I didn’t end up feeling *too* bad about this decadent treat.
The verdict? Well, as D concluded, you could pretty much make this at home, with donuts and ice cream. It is an interesting concept though, especially how they seal the donut, and the play with warm and cool. I don’t think we’ll go again, but it was fun to try.
