Carrot cake – Farallon

Carrot cake - Farallon
Cream cheese icing, buttermilk ice cream, walnuts, fennel. $10
Farallon, San Francisco CA

This was probably the most moist carrot cake I’ve ever had, and that’s a good thing! I will say that with the cream cheese icing and the buttermilk ice cream, it got really heavy after a few bites. I think they could have kept this simpler and it would have been better.
