Dinner with my colleagues (now ex-colleagues) is never normal. We always resort to picking up desserts (the dreaded yet highly anticipated D-word) instead of any actual food. We headed over to Cocola Bakery located in Santana Row at around 6 in the evening. It was pretty crowded with a huge number of people trying to satisfy their sweet tooth. Some people can be so desperate for baked goods, tsk tsk. We all ended up getting creme brûlée and I got to pick up a piece of Opera cake for my little sister because I'm basically the nicest sister ever. Creme brûlée was good but since we didn't eat them immediately, the caramel layer became a tad too hard but nonetheless tasted fantastic. A little less lemon-y and I would've given it a 10/10. As for the Opera cake...HEAVEN. I sneaked a few bites after giving it to my sister and at that point I was wishing that I could've picked up a slice for myself. Here's Cocola's description of the cake for those of you who are interested in the finer things in life "layers of almond sponge cake, melted chocolate, coffee butter cream and ganash". Pictures below! Try not to lick your screen please.
I know, I'm sorry! I never seem to remember to take quality pictures so I end up with the ones saved from Snapchat. Anyway, this is about the time I paid a visit to the food trucks set up by Off The Grid, which takes place every Tuesday evening in the Whole Foods parking lot area in 95014. I went with a couple of family friends the evening of the Belgium vs USA game so although people were a little more irritable than usual, seeing all these trucks parked with such good food made everything better. My friend and I weren't thaaat hungry so we stopped by the waffle truck and picked up a belgian waffle, topped with blueberries, strawberries, and Nutella AKA deliciousness! We were booed at by a fellow friend for "fraternizing with the enemy's waffles" but they were just too good! Definitely make your way over to these food trucks if you haven't already, trust me, you won't regret it!
