Traditional Beignets hand-rolled, flash fried, and dusted in powdered sugar.
I have to say, I’ve never even heard of a beignet before I came across this place and I certainly didn’t know how to pronounce it (ben-yay). But once I met the beignet, I was pretty happy we got to know each other.
They’re kind of like donuts with powdered sugar. But this place also has what they call ‘savory’ beignets, too, with several varieties of goodness on the inside of them depending on which kind you choose. I just happened to try ‘The Bronx’ beignet and I thought it was pretty good for a savory surprise.
I have to say, I did fall in love with the 7-cheese macaroni. How do you NOT love something that has 7 different cheeses inside of it?! I immersed my entire face into it. It was as if we became one.
But I wasn’t too fond of the bread pudding tho (probably because I’ve grown accustomed to the awesome bread pudding at my local diner).
