Dining Out | Freshstreet’s Takoyaki House

The beloved owners of Foodie Cart have a new culinary endeavor inside Mikey’s Late Night Slice in the Short North: an authentic takoyaki house.  Savory little ball-shaped dumplings filled with goodies like octopus, Japanese pork sausage or cabbage, are made fresh when you walk up and order.

Jeni’s Launch at Middle West Spirits

I was almost giggly when I found out about the Jeni’s Splendid launch party for the new flavor Oakvale Young Gouda with Vodka-Plumped Cranberries.   Hosted by Middle West Spirits in the Short North, the belle of the ball was served out of Jeni’s pretty new mobile ice cream truck. 

 

Now add to this that Middle West held tastings of their boutique vodka OYO, and Foodie Cart was serving Japanese Crepes outside and Clever Crow was running in fresh cornbread crust pizzas from across the street and the Salty Caramels were crooning and playing the saw (awesome!).   I thought for a minute it was my birthday.  Well, the birthday of my dreams.  My dream birthday would have mariachis doing a set when the Salty Caramels took a break and there would be fireworks.  But I digress.

The ice cream, first off, is amazing.  It’s a locally-sourced and locally-made treasure.  Jeni’s great base made with Snowville cream is layered with OYO soaked cranberries and bits of Oakvale’s young gouda.  It’s a sweet and savory flavor combination that makes your tongue want to turn cartwheels.  Oh happy, happy day.  “Sweet and unique it’s Jeni’s ice cream.”

Japanese Crepes from Foodie Cart

Columbus, as the locals all know, has a fast growing number of food carts and food trucks.  PK loves Foodie Cart.  

Sweet people.  Tasty, creative crepes.  And a devoted following

Within two minutes of setting up, a healthy line had already formed, thanks to lots of followers on Twitter and FaceBook.

 

We sampled the two sweet crepes, not having room for the Tigertree BLT with E&C.   Sigh.  Next time, hopefully. 

We sampled the Azuki Stick and the Kabocha Pumpkin

 

The Azuki Stick was filled with azuki beans, strawberries and shredded mozzarella.   Nice, nice.  Very nice.

And then the heavenly Kabocha Pumpkin Mont Blanc.  It was like Japanese pumpkin pie in a crepe.  Silky pumpkin, baked meringue and whipped cream.
