Spruce Revisited @ Phoenix Park
Nursing a burger craving, it brought me to Spruce. The great burger of yesteryears stuck on, as with their famed but now defunct purple velvet cake. Reservations were finally made after at least five dropped calls. When we arrived, most tables were reserved and it took an uncomfortable good 5 minutes before we were acknowledged. The menu had undergone some changes and seemed a lot more limited than the last visit yonks back.
Have yet to try their brunch though!
Glad that there was hardly a fishy stench about this – yum!
Tangy salad for company!
This dessert was served twice with the first attempt too tough for the spoon to attempt – bouncy infact!
The second was what it should be, all of moist and fragrant cake. Ginger was too faint to discern but the vanilla bean icecream was delightfully rich.
I could have ended up with more berries than the first but definitely the second attempt was way better!
