Gastrophoria is a baked sweet potato at Fat Spoon.
It may not be the most photogenic dessert with its misshapen and charred exterior, but one bite has the ability to transport you headfirst to your most beloved campfire memory. It’s a twice baked sweet potato, with its innards mixed with rich cream and butter and roasted till they’re all caramelized—much like a s’more. Except a simple s’more can never compare as this has a bonus addition of vanilla ice cream and bittersweet caramel (cue body-roll)! The hot-and-cold sensation of the baked potato with the ice cream is just divine.
Oh, if you’re hungry for more than just dessert, their creamy, molten crab croquettes are not to be missed. Especially when smother in house-made curry sauce. This is no diet food to be sure, but you can lessen the guilt with a side of nutty brown rice.
One dish that should come with a cautionary note is the black squid ink pasta with clams. Warning—your teeth and mouth will be dyed black. Make sure your dining companion has a sense of humor before ordering.
