Oxtail on the menu? Don’t mind if I do! Whenever this item is offered you be darn sure I’ll be the first person to order it because when stewed over the stove with the right ingredients this dish can blow your mind away. Making its authentic Latin food imprint in Brooklyn, El Nuevo Cibao’s chef can cook up a mean meal and oxtail is the one to get because it’s tail sucking good with its flavorful sauce and tender meat (albeit sparse). The rice and beans you get here is served in a separate dish which means more room for the main entree; hey, my kinda eatin’!
Great service, lovely staff, decent pancakes, free drink; it’s no wonder why Tom’s in Brooklyn have an hour wait during the weekends! Catch an employee on their good side and you’re probably gonna score a rickey on the house. I scored mine after mentioning they overdid my pancakes so along with the brightly colored eye candy drink I got a new stack of pumpkin pancakes cooked to perfection the second time around. Hooray for freebies and good service!
A decorative dessert platter, Woof!, is waffles constructed and deconstructed to create a fun, dimensional piece for you to devour. Warm and crispy waffles are accompanied with bananas, strawberry and two scoops of vanilla ice cream drizzled with chocolate sauce; talk about armed with the goods you can’t refuse! Not really an ice cream sandwich and not quite a Belgian waffle, the appearance of this week’s special over at Palais de Sweet will likely pique your gastronomy interest and lead to this question, “Fork or spoon?”
Since I haven’t updated this blog in a hot minute I’m just going to enter a few entries at one go. All that eating does take up time you know! So without further ado, I present you the latest creation from Palais de Sweet: Palais Pizza!
The PP (hahaha!) is peppered with ham, pineapple and cheese over a slice of toasted flat bread so eat it immediately to enjoy each delicious bite. I personally like to enjoy my pizza while it’s still warm but to those who don’t care about the temperature… Bravo! Although it’s a light snack, I’m impressed with the generous ingredients with its ratio and I’m particularly happy to know I can order a fondue after it LOL! Where else can you enjoy a pizza, traditional sweet soups, fusion desserts and chill out with great friends in a laid back environment around here? No where but Palais de Sweet! :)
The sweet little shop that could got wind that savory items are desired so what customers want the customers get! Palais de Sweet now carry several light snack platters that cater to those who are seeking for a bit of salt pre-sugar mania.
Their mini burger consists of three meatballs made from quality Italian sausage meat and you can taste its authenticity. Juicy and tender, sweet and savory, this order is meant to tide you over before your dessert desire kicks in. And of course they already got you covered in that area. Well played, Palais de Sweet, well played.
Hooray for mango season!! I’ve been waiting for this day to come since the winter started and boy oh boy am I glad the fragrant fruit has returned to my life! What is the mango known for besides its intense flavor and lovely scent?

b) indigestion reliever
c) lowers cholesterol
d) diabetic friendly
e) cancer fighter
f) hosts a trove of minerals
g) promotes better vision
h) sex drive enhancer
i) keeps blood pressure down
j) clears the skin

Palais de Sweet must be a shop that advocates a healthy lifestyle because it certainly speak so in their menu. Serving the mango cheesecake in a dainty glass cup, I can safely say I had a nutritious dessert due to its portion as well as meeting my health mark for the day with the pulpy potent fruit found inside.
Feast your eyes on this beast! Because that’s all you can do :-P Back by popular demand is the tiramisu from Palais de Sweet since customers just can’t seem to get enough of it.

Presentable and yummy, what can go wrong with that combo?
