A couple weeks ago, we went to Austin Cake Ball with Dustin for dinner. The food totally exceeded my expectations. I started with a chicken and potato curry soup. It was good and I don't have anything else to say about it. For my entree, I got the chicken and mushroom crepes, which were tasty and covered in a rich gravy. The salad was a nice way to break up the extreme richness of the meal. Colby got the gnocchi alfredo. These were excellent. On the salty side, but I like things on the salty side. Also, (again) incredibly rich. There's no way I would have been able to make an entire meal of out them without getting sick. Colby ate a lot of my salad. Dustin got the roasted chicken with brussels sprouts and bacon. This was definitely the winner. If we ever go back there, I'm ordering that.
The cake balls themselves were a bit disappointing. Every time I have a cake ball or a cake pop, I'm always reminded that I kind of hate the way candy melts taste, so it sort of takes away from the experience. They're also CRAZY expensive. At nearly $3 a piece, these cake balls are on the small side. Dustin said that the peanut butter cake ball was worth the expensive, though. We'll likely come back here again, but I'll probably skip on the cake balls.
