Buttermilk Pancakes w salted caramel butter, maple syrup, hash browns & 2 eggs - 3

J's comment > so thankful that these pancakes are as wonderful as I remembered them to be from my previous visit... soft, fluffy w a light crisp on the edges, syrup doesn't 'disappear' when drizzled on top, hard 3; yup, definitely comes w eggs - the kitchen can't do 'no yolks', but they did the next best thing for me and didn't break the yolks so I could cut around it.

Salted Caramel Apple Creme Brulee: Caramelized granny smith apples with a salted caramel custard.‎ Finished with a touch of citrus salt - 2

J's comment > not bad; loved the pairing of the granny smith apples & the custard, the apples aren't just for decoration, it tastes really fab together; on its own though, the custard was a tad warm (I think the chef went a little too eager w the torch), surprisingly though, the top wasn't caramelized enough - I think the salt may have something to do w the chemistry w the flame; I got the salt, but wouldn't go so far to point out that it's 'citrus salt'
