CT Eats: Chocolate is the star at Hedonist Artisan Chocolates
As fantastic as the fun flavors were, they perfectly balanced with the real star of Hedonist: luscious, luxurious fresh chocolate.
CT Eats: Mamma G’s a mixed bag
As much as I adored those entrees, dessert left me wanting. Our waitress, who had a good track record with the timballo, claimed that “Dario’s dessert” was the best dessert.

CT Eats: Cuckoo for Coco Garden Malaysian Restaurant
Not only can Coco Garden come up with exciting flavors, but they know how to mix up the perfect shake as well. Even without the incredible taro flavor, this milkshake would have been to-die-for. Thick, creamy, and silky smooth. Wendy’s Frosties are quaking in their boots.

CT Eats: Lento is farm-to-table perfection

CT Eats: Yummy Garden Part II
After months of sorrowful separation, Shagun and I ventured back to Yummy Garden for another taste of glory. This time for the hot pot, as promised. For those unfamiliar with the concept, the hot pot experience is essentially cooking your own food in boiling broth at your table.
CT Eats: Pittsford Farms Dairy provides pastry perfection
