Firefly dinner with the meeting of the douchebagfoodcritics

1009 El Centro St
South Pasadena, CA 91030
(626) 441-2443

The first meeting of the douchebagfoodcritics, Kristine, Jamie and me. New place to try out after a yelp hunt by me. Not disappointed! Really cute and quaint ambiance (remind me to bring a date here). Service was good, sangria yum.

What we had:Sangria of course

Spicy Butternut Squash Doughnuts with toasted walnut-madras curry dip, and oregano honey
Flavorful crunchy good sweetness

Mushroom Tokana with potato, feta and caper crispy dumplings, and dill marinated cabbage
This was interesting, yet very very good. Mushroom tokana wa
s great

Pecan Coated Catfish over sweet potato-andouille hash, with firefly collard greens, and mustard pan sauce
Flavorful as well, the fish has a sharp citrus tang, collard greens cooked just right!

Italian Broccoli with white beans, chili flakes, garlic, herbs, and grilled flat bread (in back), Parsley-Garlic Fries (front)
I didnt care too much for the Broccoli, but the Parsley-Garlic fries was really good

Pear and Cranberry Crisp with corn meal-pine nut crumble and sweet basil ice cream

Piping hot piping good

Dulce de Leche Cake with caramelized orange, cinnamon whipped cream and a shot of Mexican hot chocolate
Anything with dulce de leche is great. The cake has the right amount of lightness, the shot just tops it off
