I went to Whiskey Cake on National Chicken Wings Day (wasn’t planned that way). I sat at the bar – a few menus were sitting around so I picked one up started skimming through all the options. There was a lot, so I asked the bartender to help me out. She told me to go for the steamed black mussels – which ended up being a great option to start with.
STARTER: The dish could’ve honestly been enough for a full lunch or dinner. There were a ton of mussels in the bowl and the broth was enough to share. Also came with some bread which of course was dipped in that hot steamy broth. OH that was so good. Do the same if you order this. Let me note there is a bit of a kick to the broth the mussels came in.
MAIN: Main entrée was recommended from friend after posting the menu on Instagram (@FreddyRivera). He said ‘GO FOR THE WINGS MAN’! So I did. I ordered the Thai BBQ duck wings in honor of my friend and in honor of National Chicken Wing Day – a bird’s a bird right? So he said anyway. The meat fell right off the bone. I had a fork and knife but c’mon, you gotta go right in. Wings were meant to be eaten with your hands. So tender, so flavorful. Since these were duck wings they were slightly bigger than your average wing so be ready!
DESSERT: How am I gonna eat at Whiskey Cake at not order the whiskey cake??? I was full after the first two plates but if you know me, you know I always seem to have room for dessert. The whiskey cake was moist, sitting atop a layer of caramel and everything GOOD. Couldn’t really taste the whiskey (which I guess is a good thing) and the walnuts add for a nice texture / bite to the cake. It was topped with what looked like homemade whipped cream. Big enough to share, right size for one person.
DRINKS: Their whiskey drinks on the menu looked and sounded AMAZING but since I ordered so much food I thought I’d wait for my second visit… to try that ‘Smokey Robinson’. Cheers!
