It's like a Jello- Shot but is liquid in the center, totally insane!
MC know's I'm burned out on Local Lobs. We overdosed at the begining of the Season. Right now Live King Crab is avail downtown. If you call MC he can probably get some this week "special order" before it goes away.
>>What's "greyhound on a spoon"? Chef isn't getting Korean influences, is he?
LOL - as others already mentioned, it's jellified cocktail (LAT did a piece on that trend recently). Sounds much more delicious than the jello shots I downed when ... umm, nevermind ;)
But I can't wait to return just for dessert tasting menu.
My guess is that the greyhound on a spoon is made much like the mojito. The later is called Mojito Raviolo. It is served on an El Bulli spoon and utilizes the Adria technique of adding calcium aginate to a liquid - the effect is a thin film encasing the mojito liquid so that it popped mojito liquid into your mouth as you ate it.
