Lemon Bar #3 – Market Hall on College Ave. in Rockridge, Oakland
I left work early for a doctor’s appointment and boy met me on College Ave. for a quick lunch before back to work. He never did like Crepevine and didn’t finish that tuna melt and the food is a bit 2 AM post-drinking food, but I don’t mind it. I had the Kyoto crepe – weird combination. To make up for the sub-par food we ran across the road never using proper crosswalks like we should and grabbed some treats from the Market Hall bakery.
Over-baked. I don’t want the top of my lemon bar looking like an omelet. But at least it had a bit of powdered sugar on top. I nibbled bits in the car, they crumbled off the top while the crust didn’t budge without a snap. The crust was thick and not buttery enough. The lemon part was too dry and still didn’t have that sharp lemony sweet bite.
I came back to a spotty internet connection and missed time-sensitive emails that may have contributed to me shoving the rest of the bar into my mouth without tasting much. Because that’s how stress eating works.
