Rice To Riches

Fleurise was scandalized that I had never been to Rice to Riches. So we made a trip. It is a place that sells rice pudding in different flavors. Fleurise was pretty excited to be there.

I didn't have strong feelings for rice pudding either which way, so I didn't know quite what to expect. She recommended the mascarpone rice pudding with cherries. It was delicious!! I didn't know rice pudding could taste that smooth.

Even better are those durable orange plastic bowls and spoons that are a bit too small to hold anything useful but a pity to throw out and fun to take home. The faintly european sensibility of the place (The clean lines? The zany idea of a rice pudding dessert place?) rounds out the fun.
