Slow Food UW Cafe Lunch – 3/20

March 2013 029Today’s Slow Food UW Cafe lunch featured a carnival theme. And there’s nothing I love more than a menu crafted around a theme. I couldn’t help myself from I trying everything on the menu, except the chili cheese dog. My picks included an over-sized soft pretzel with house mustard and beer cheese sauce ($4), a savory funnel cake ($1), fried pickles and onion rings ($1), a root veggie kabob ($1), and for dessert, chocolate custard with caramel corn topping ($1). All were delicious. The savory funnel cake with wild rice and roasted bell peppers was particularly interesting (although slightly disconcerting in appearance). And I loved the dessert’s contrast in textures —smooth chocolate pudding punctuated by crunchy popcorn coated in a hardened sweet, caramel sauce, finished with a drizzle of chocolate sauce. Thankfully, the food was unlike any other I’ve enjoyed at a carnival.
