🗒: Fried spinach portabella mushroom dumplings. Sweet n’ spiced wings. Five spice calamari.
🤔: It was good af. I didn’t get a pic of the wings, but boiiiiiii they were definitely 1 of the best tasting set of wings I’ve ever had. I ordered 2 (shared some with my fransss) but they were just SO GOOD. It was sweet, salty & spicy. I normally don’t do sweet & spicy. I think it’s an odd combination, but I’m glad I took a chance. The calamari had been perfectly fried to a golden crisp & the fried dumplings were fulfilling & wholesome. My friend got the spicy sesame chicken ginger dumplings (not pictured) & it was okay but I didn’t like the texture – possibly because it got soggy idk, but something threw me off about the minced chicken. If you like spinach & if you like mushroom…like ME, go with the spinach portabella mushroom dumplings fried!YUMMMMMMMM.
😋: HOT. Dim lighting, good food & a chill ambiance. We were even offered house made shots. If I was free tonight I’d be there. I spent my 24th birthday at Verlaine. They have happy hour from 5pm-10pm. I should just end the review right there, but that would be disingenuous. The food was great. The vibes were really chill. They have tables, couches, a full bar, the whole nine yards. The layout was really cute. I plan on going back but I plan on making it a pre-game type spot. For me, just having a baby & all it was the perfect place to celebrate & go right back home to baby. ACALMNIGHT. Our server did her job, but she seemed a little antsy & hopped-up at times. She also looked like the only server that Wednesday night.
💃🏽: GO. I was having such a hard decision on choosing where to spend my birthday but Verlaine won when I found them on yelp & read that their happy hour goes until 10. Go check it out, tell them how you heard of them & me when you do go.
