Where to Eat
Cheu Noodle Bar: I'm going to go ahead and say it. The black garlic wings at Cheu are THE. BEST. WINGS. that I've ever had. EVER. Their sauce is so delicious I could drink a bowl of it every day.
But you don't go here for the wings (or the jasmine ice tea, which was equally delicious). Cheu's specialty is of course their noodles and my bowl of coconut curry noodles with peas, herbs, and peanut sambal was divine. Endlessly messy, but worth every single splatter. At $11 for a huge bowl, this is one sweet - make that spicy! - deal.
The desserts were equally tempting and my choice, a creme fraiche panna cotta with spiced fresh apricot, was unusual, creative, and hugely delicious.
The service was absolutely phenomenal and little touches, like double checking if anyone in the party had allergies and bringing over a surprise scoop of prickly pear gelato just because the stafff heard us chatting about the unique flavor, made a great meal soar to new heights.
For bonus points, finish up the night with a second dessert. Nearby Capogiro Gelato has a sea salt gelato that you absolutely must try. No really, trust me!
