I love Urth Caffe with a passion hotter than the Spanish latte. It's the number one place I drag my parents' wallets to. It's a place where just the mention of the name makes me perk up like a deer that's about to get hunted. Sadly, the butter was not as amazing as everything else on the menu.
It just kind of sits there like me in math class when I don't know what to do
Salt Scale- 2/5
There was a hint of salt, but not enough to save the dish
It was pretty dense, but the consistency didn't add anything special to the bread
It RIPPED a piece of toasted sourdough. That is hard to do!
By far, our lowest score to date
Melt in your mouth and went down like a milkshake
Not very salty, but had great flavor
Light and Airy
Bonus point for presentation
Hello my fellow butter enthusiasts, it's been so long since I've written I hope none of you have melted!
It is with a low head that I have to report that the Pasadena Institution does not have homemade butter, instead a diner is stuck with opening a tin wrapping and eating butter from Darigold.
Alas, I must report
The texture was pleasant for a peasant butter. It didn't just sit on the tip of my tongue
It was very dense
Glided on the bread like a bird in the ocean
Not bad for packaged butter
Note- All these factors may have been affected by the 90 degree weather. Even though the butter may not be ideal, the zucchini bread is AMAZING
Didn’t melt right into the waffle or in my mouth
Salt Scale: 3/5
I feel kinda bad for giving this butter such a low rating, because honey butter isn’t supposed to be salty, but sweet.
It was very rich and dense, it even stuck to the roof of my mouth when I first tried it.
Most butter on waffles is really hard to spread due to the lack of the smooth surface, but this butter crept into the crevices easily and didn’t stick to my knife
I also think it deserves an extra point for presentation. Meritage almost had me worried that they forgot my butter, but it was disguised (or maybe I just hadn't had my morning coffee yet) +1
My very first butter review! It is a good thing that Limewood's butter was pretty good, because every first post has to be iconic.
If you need a refresher (or learn) my grading scale on my butter preferences.
"It's practically Liquid"- My Aunt Jen
It was very soft didn't over power the bread
This butter virtually had no flavor, except for that butter taste, we all know that taste. I love salty butter, and this was just not doing it for me. I did enjoy the hints of honey though.
Limewood's butter was very light and airy, but for bread on thick San Francisco sourdough the butter needs to be rich and dense.
It slid on like a newborn on ice skates.
