My old roommate Vanessa and I, along with our friend Betty, went to Mani's on Fairfax today for a quick breakfast. I knew about the great special they are currently running (Monday-Friday before 11am all breakfast orders are only $9) so we took advantage and headed down to Mid-Wilshire.
Of course, it shouldn't go unmentioned that we also made a late night stop at Millions of Milkshakes after dancing our way through The Abbey and Apple. I love Millions of Milkshakes (check my previous post here) but I'm not sure it was the best idea for a late night snack...See my previous post about Millions of Milkshakes here.
Vanessa and I always make sure to check out the baked goods displayed at the front of Mani's so we know what to expect for dessert. I was pleasantly surprised to see that there were slices available of the restaurants Dark Chocolate Mousse Cake. I've tried the bakery's peanut butter bites, caramelized apple cake, and lemon poppy muffins, but had never seen the Dark Chocolate Mousse Cake Available (check out my previous posts about Mani's here and here).
I made sure to pick up a slice of the Dark Chocolate Mousse for later... and later is now! I just ate the slice and it was amazing, in a word. It had a slight hint of raspberry (or at least I thought so) and was really great. There is one downside, however: it is expensive! The slice cost me $6.75 this morning!! In these tough economic times it's difficult to justify that, but as an infrequent treat the Dark Chocolate Mousse Cake is the way to go.
Also, on a sidenote, I'd like to wish everyone a happy and healthy Memorial Day weekend.
