We're big fans of Uchi, well worth a trip to Austin by itself. But, you know, get tacos and stuff too. Ready to put some effort into one of the best desserts we've ever tasted? These folks cook methodically (for good reason), so break out that scale and get ready to show your sweet tooth a little love.

I love the silky creaminess of a flan, so pleasing on the tongue. For years I experimented with savory versions to be served as a side. This was my first success, a cheesy, custard-like dish that parfectly partners with any grilled or poached fish. It's also very easy to do.

Creme brulee is typically a vanilla custard topped off with a burnt sugar topping. The absolute best part of this dessert is that to get the sugar topping all burnt and crackly, you get to scorch the top with a mini-butane kitchen torch. It's also a dessert that is reasonably easy to prep and make, but super impressive when you serve it.
