For my birthday a couple of weeks ago my husband took me out to dinner at Fuel in Lewiston, Maine. It was our first time there, but we had been hearing great things about this spot for a while now. Our dinner was amazing from the start, but what really got me was the dessert! Chai spice creme brulee served with a snickerdoodle cookie. I love chai spices. I love creme brulee. I love snickerdoodle cookies. Obviously I was excited to try this dish.
Believe it or not, it was better than I anticipated. The top was perfectly crunchy and needed a good smack from the spoon to crack. Oh, how I love to do that! Under the sugar was a perfectly decadent creamy and spice custard. Every bite was incredible. Even the snickerdoodle cookie was wonderfully snickerdoodly!
If you find yourself in the area of Lewiston, Maine, do yourself the favor of checking out Fuel. You will love it! In addition to the beautiful dessert we also had the fondue for two and the coq au vin. Both dishes were delicious, and over the top. The fondue was creamy, salty, garlicy and fun! The coq au vin was rich and savory, with wonderful complex flavors of chicken, wine, butter, mushrooms and bacon. Hungry yet?! I can’t wait to get back to Fuel for another meal (and dessert) and hope you make it there soon.
