That Food Named!


Well we had a lot of good guesses for our most recent Name That Food contest. I especially liked Britannia‘s guess of velveeta cheeese, white bean hummus and hot sauce. As expected, no one knew exactly what this one was — I’d have to say Tracy‘s guess of lemon curd surrounded by white chocolate with raspberry swirls was probably the closest.

So what is this monstrosity? Full explanation after the jump…

Aha! It was the mango pudding dessert from Buddha Bodai, New York’s best (only?) Kosher Chinese vegetarian restaurant, composed from mango, soy cream and agar. Wow, the description sounds a lot grosser than it looks, huh? It was actually delicious, and thankfully, upon seeing our gawking/confused faces, the waiter offered to slice it up and serve it to us on individual plates.
