Latest Bunky's news and reviews at del.icio.us
JM ate the penne primavera and an Izzo lemonade.
Nichole ate the tilapia special with a pear Izzo.
We split 2/3 of a slice of Chocolate Eruption cake and took the last third home.
JM and Nichole both gave Bunky's an A (see our grading rubric).
Step away from the computer and make plans to go to Bunky's now. It is wonderful. Warm and inviting inside, with a kind of shabby chic look, very nice staff, and a suitable menu, Bunky's is our favorite place since Bahn Thai. Must be the neighborhood.
Smooth lentil soup made a great starter with warm garlic bread. Nichole's tilapia was served on a bed of orange-spiced couscous and inscrutably delicious vegetables. The fish veritably melted in the mouth, and the contrasting textures of the side dishes were delightful.
JM's food was plentiful and flavorful with enough marinara sauce to hide any scary vegetables. The spices worked well and JM even got to sneak a little bread into the sauce to dip (his favorite).
Good. Grief. Chocolate. Eruption. We chose it from a dessert menu that also offered such rewards as carrot cake, tiramisu, and others too numerous to recall. Though we can't be sure, we think we got the best in show. The server called it simply "chocolate mousse cake," but when we saw it, it became obvious why it deserves a fancy name. A foundation of chocolate flour cake heroically hoists rich chocolate mousse several inches over the plate. It looks as if the mousse itself has recently devoured whole chunks of - we kid you not - cheesecake, and the whole shebang is topped with caramel and almond topping. Bunky's coffee is top notch as well.
We're not kidding - check it out as soon as you can.
