PHAT @ Royal Centre

May 29, 2014

Latkes: Shredded potato pancakes w sour cream & apple sauce (skinny) - 2+

J's comment > almost as good as last time's! slightly less crisp on the outside than last try's, but still pretty darn good!

Belgian Waffles with Fresh Fruit - 2+

J's comment > OMG! Really good waffles!!! I have to say one of the best waffles I've ever had; not too heavy or dense, lightly crisped on the exterior, airy on the inside; it's always a pleasant surprise to see food joints that already have established star dishes have even more spectacular side kicks; FYI, PHAT's rise to fame is reportedly the smoked meat - I thought this was OK, but was easily taken down by these waffles

Triple Decker Grilled Cheese Cheddar and Mozzarella Cheese - 2+

J's comment > very cheesy & bread was soft like a pillow! Only complaint though was that the cheese flavor was kinda one-dimensional; would have preferred an extra oomph, like say swiss or gruyere

Bagel with Butter - 2

J's comment > not bad; texture of the bagel one of the better ones I've had, not too hard yet still dense; seriously insufficient butter though, I'd say go for the cream cheese or something else as a complement
