So who else loves this stuff like I do?
I've only had it once and it is still lingering on my memory. Granted I should be remembering the steak, but that's not going to happen.
The texture was just soooooo velvety. Now I know creme brulee is supposed to be a thicker and denser texture, but I just fell in love with the silky melt-in-your-mouth of Ruth Chris's version of creme brulee!
For some reason I got thinking of it, and now I would like to ask the creme brulee queens and kings to post their favorite places in the city that serves the "best".
Almost everywhere else I have had it tastes the same or just "alright" to me. Nothing spectacular to take up memory space. I forget, but I've tried:
Commander's Palace - fairly decent but what I remember most is the fleur de lis stencil heh
Maurice French Bakery - the worst I've had so far (did I taste lard in it?? the sugar is not even carmelized)
La Madeleine's - probably my 2nd favorite, but the tart, although creative and equally yummy throws me off
Sheraton Hotel - my first time to have had creme brulee and I remember it being very very rich. It wasn't dense, but more of a very thick cream. I wouldn't mind having it again but since it was for a wedding, I don't know how to order it!
Bravo's - mediocre, not memorable
And of course, if I am missing out, please let me know. Maybe Ruth Chris's isn't the penultimate...
