I’ve been hearing about Icafe for years now because Grayson goes there quite a bit. So when I finally had the time to go by for dinner the other day, you can assume I had quite the expectations. The first thing I noticed was how big the menu was. It was practically a novel long!
This braided red bean milk bread has the softest, fluffiest dough ever! And the most surprising part is that it uses a regular dough rather than a gelatinized one!
