Gitlo's: Daikon Cake with XO and Sweet Potato Puffs

junior coyote | Mar 7, 2008 06:55 AM

/esterday's lunch at Gitlo's included Daikon Cake with XO sauce and Sweet Potato Puffs. The new standard method of preparation for the daikon cakes include pre-frying (before pan frying) the cubes of daikon so they are browned on all sides. This gives it a kind of home fry/ french fry type consistency. I liked it. If you l liked the previous method of preperation, you may want to specify that.

The Sweet Potato Puffs I had were different from the ones I had several weeks ago. Gitlo said that they are now using Japanesse sweet potatoes (lighter color) instead of Chinese sweet potatoes (a more yellow color). I liked the puffs with the Japanesse sweet potatoes much better. Give them another try if you have only had the other variety.

Renovations are underway. Good bye green walls and fluorescent lights.
