Transform Date Night with Fusion-style Drinks and Dessert
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
Start tonight with dinner and science-focused cocktails at Straylight, located underneath Juku in Chinatown. Their cocktails are made with quality ingredients like yuzu, jasmine, cherry blossom, sesame, matcha, and ginger honey. Try the Bulleit Train made with Bulleit bourbon, sesame, matcha, cacao nib, ginger honey, and oloroso. We're obsessed with the green velvet booths, colorful stained glass-esque ceiling, and warm ambiance. Their small bites menu includes fried chicken, grilled baby sardine chips, Menchi Katsu sliders, and "cheeza-it," an assortment of Japanese cheese crackers.
Afterward, head over to Eggloo—a dessert shop that specializes in Asian-fusion desserts, based on the Hong Kong-style egg waffle and ice cream. The waffles are made from a sweet, egg-based batter that gives them a crunchy exterior with a cake-like interior. In their own words, Eggloo aims to "bring you something that may taste new but nostalgic, foreign but native, and sometimes even hot but cold." While the space itself is minimally decorated and small, the dessert packs a punch.
