Awesome Bakery – Fav’s Treatery

I am so excited to boast about one of my favorite bakeries and pastry chefs ever, “Fav’s Treatery” (pronounced faves).  A delectable creation by partners Mehdi Youcef and Michael Bagley.  All their sweets are gastronomic wonders to both the eye and palette.
The goodies are endless and if Mehdi’s buttery and flaky Parisian Croissant filled with delicious crème custard, glazed with an Apricot wash, topped with sliced almonds, and sprinkled with powdered sugar doesn’t make your mouth water, I don’t know what else will.  🙂

My Sweet Journey!

Yesterday, I was invited to lunch by my two girl friends….What I thought would end up as the usual salad and soup turned out to be a delectable feast of the palate and eyes!

After a little debate, we ALL decided we were in the mood for some really good noodles and tempura..My friend knew of just the place…  Next thing I know we pull up in front of this HUGE Japanese Market..Yes..SUPER market… ?

As I walk in..I see the typical produce stands, nothing out of the ordinary…still a bit confused, she nudges me towards the back of the store..OMG! a bakery food court!

This is what I first saw…

Image

MOCHI! In every single color and flavor imaginable!.. Mochi is a traditional Japanese (sticky) sweet rice cake and is made in many flavors. I thought I had died and gone to heaven..

Image

And then even more pastry cases with sweet delectable treats..who wanted lunch? Dessert looks fine to me!

But before heading over for lunch (yes..a HUGE food court too)..I saw mult- technicolored aisle after aisle of yummy sweet candy…

Image

and more candy…

Image

and even more candy…  I was a goner for sure.. my eyes were as big as saucers !

But then I saw this!

SUSHI! I never saw so much sushi in my life! Every single variety that exists, I am sure.

Image

Breath taking!

Image

Okay..so NOW I was hungry…

Tempura anyone? There was shrimp, sweet potato, onion, zucchini, and things I couldn’t quite recognize..but looked good..Hey….anything tastes good if its fried!  🙂

Image

The variety was astounding…so many choices..my eyes were definitely bigger than my stomach…

That was too much for me to take in an hour …really.

I was finally able to calm myself down long enough to eat what I came here for…Noodles and Tempura!

Image

Delicious! You know I made room for dessert…

Have a great day!  🙂
