311 Arizona Avenue, Santa Monica, CA
I been super busy lately, and most likely it will stay this way for quite awhile. Anyways, I will try to blog as much as I can (sorry in advance if I am MIA for a few days). A couple weeks back, R and I had to make a short trip down to LA. One of the places we visited was the Santa Monica Pier. Unfortunately for us, that day was windy and cold, so we sought out indoor shelter instead. Therefore discovered this beautiful bakery shop by chance.
The place was beautiful with their wooden decors. Their menu was short and simple with most of their food in the display case for you to see. In all honesty, what drew me in initially was the simple yet elegant decor, but what made me stay was their delicious sounding souffle menu.
I watched to try their Passion fruit souffle, but they weren't offering that anymore. So in the end, I went for the raspberry souffle with white chocolate bread pudding ($7ish). I know with souffles, it is best to consume when it's still hot. Therefore, they told us to be back in 20 minutes after ordering. We got back in time only to find out that their first one did not rise as nicely as they would have liked, so they are making a 2nd one. They apologized for the delay and hope we can accept. Since we weren't in a hurry, we did wait it out. Let's just say it was so worth it. The souffle was light and fluffy with a slight liquid center. The tartness from the raspberry was balance out nicely by the addition of the white chocolate bread pudding. This was also very good, but a bit dry in places.
Overall, both R and I really enjoyed their souffle and would definitely recommended it to anyone. Also what we really loved was the decor, the wooden counter tops and the grass bar stools were a nice touch for that all natural feel. So if you ever in Santa Monica, definitely give this place a try, it's totally worth it.
