I haven’t fired up the blog in forever, but this is definitely blog-worthy.
Tonight The Peached Tortilla opens it’s doors. Go check them out.

Last night we had the opportunity to taste some of their foods during the soft opening. Please allow me to introduce you to your new favorite dish!
First we started with the Bacon Jam Fries. How could you not order these?
A long time food truck favorite, the flavor of the fries is simply amazing. Be sure to dip your fries in the running egg yolk or just mix the whole thing. The Peached Tortilla offers three sauces on the table that you can smoother on your fries if you wish.
Then We had some new dishes that are unique to the brick and motor restaurant – the names of which I can’t remember… Shucks, I guess I’ll just have to go back soon so I can update this review with the proper information I’ll just describe the dish instead. It’s ramen in a curried broth, loaded with various toppings… green onion, mint, cilantro, basil, poached shrimp, and a soft-boiled egg to name a few. The flavor is pretty delish – I have to mention that’s it’s pretty heavy on the seafood side so if that’s not you’re forte, proceed with caution.
Next we had a bowl everyone will love. Pork Belly, Kimchi, and Rice. What else can you ask for in life?

Finally, we decided to go whole hog and get a dessert. This is a moment we’ve been waiting years for, right?? This is the “Singapore Fling”. Tapioca pearls with little cubes of pear and lime zest. It’s delicious but while I was enjoying spoonful after spoonful, I couldn’t help but wonder what it would be like with some basil strips floating around in that ball pit. An experiment I must save for another day I suppose.
I hope to go back so I can provide a review of every new item on their Brick and Motor menu – so stay tuned for updates!!
