National Bagel and Lox Day - Try WD 50's Bagel Ice Cream and Salmon Threads


{Classic Bagel and Lox}

Today is National Bagel and Lox Day! And although there's nothing wrong with the classic you've go to try WD 50's Everything Bagel Ice cream.
 
{Everything Bagel Ice Cream, Salmon Threads, Pickled Red Onions, and Cream Cheese Chip}


WD50 is a restaurant on the Lower East Side that specializes in Molecular Gastronomy and American Nouveau cuisine. I have always been a huge fan of Molecular Gastronomy; I blame it on my science background. In fact, one of the top restaurants on my bucket list is Homaro Cantu's Moto Restaurant in Chicago. I mean talk about a genius in the kitchen. 


{Chef Wylie Dufresne}


 But I'm not going to Chicago anytime soon and I really wanted to partake in a meal that would blow my mind.
Chef and Owner Wylie Dufresne is a magician in the kitchen. He transforms one of my favorite breakfast foods into a culinary delight, that I would expect to find in Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. 



{Everything Bagel Ice Cream, Salmon Threads, Pickled Red Onions, and Cream Cheese Chip}

The Everything Bagel Ice Cream is served with Pickled red Onions, a crispy cream cheese chip, Salmon Threads, and sorrel microgreens as garnish. It's like nothing I've ever tasted. The Everything bagel Ice Cream tastes like a creamy, sweet and Salty version of an Everything Bagel. The Salmon threads have the texture of bonito flakes, and the pickled red onions add a balanced acidity.  The strange thing is despite how it looks it tastes just like bagel and lox. This is definitely a must try!
