A Food Adventure at U-Village

When Saturday night rolled around I wanted Frose and edible cookie dough. Not together and not particularly in that order. So it was U-Village to the rescue for a food adventure. Having never tried Frose and reading about how its the perfect summer drink, I did a little research for where you can order some in Seattle. Joey had some on their menu and it looked suberb. Frose is frozen Rose wine. The perfect drink for sipping on a warm summer evening. And the best part was they had a location in U-Village where I wanted to go check out the new Froglegs Culinary Acadamy for the cookie dough.

So I decided to combine both places and make a night out of it. It had been years since I visited U-Village and I was scratching my head wondering why I hadn't visited in so long. This outdoor shopping area, located close to the University of Washington, seemed to have everything. I liked the openness of the place and it almost felt like I was in California, because of the sun shining and all of the great brands they have. I really liked how many local spots are there, too. Molly Moon's, Trophy Cupcakes, Rachel's Ginger Beer, and Ba Bar, and many more are here. There's also a nice outdoor play area for the kids and four Starbucks. I almost wanted to move in.

But before we walked around to check everything out we had dinner at Joey. I sipped my Frose happily. It really was good. Cold and refreshing. I also tried the new watermelon cocktail. It had Vodka in it, but one couldn't tell because the watermelon was so good. This drink was a thirst quencher and I liked the piece of watermelon garnish. To eat I had the Bleu Cheese Fries and two Sushi Cones. The fries were excellent and crispy and I loved the cheese on top. The Sushi Cones were a really surprise because of just how pretty they were. But not only that, they were so fresh and flavorful. They were full of many goodies, and I especially enjoyed the tempura crab tucked inside. My husband also was feeling like some Sushi and he had the Rainbow Roll. The servers were so sweet and attentive and I wish I could make this a regular spot to hang out.

For a little something sweet, we walked over to Froglegs to check out their edible cookie dough. Luckily they're located right by the kid's area so our boys played a little bit and then we checked out  the Mercantile part of the store. They're also a cooking academy for kids and adults, but they have an adorable shop in front with plenty of unicorn toys, stuffies, stationary, lip balm, and other cute items. They sell cookies and four flavors of the edible cookie dough and they also have a walk-up window for fast ordering. We decided on the Oreo cookie dough and I'm glad we did. The pieces of Oreo cookies were a nice size and so yummy in the cookie dough. My son's review of the cookie dough was that it was "rich and sugary, in a good way." My husband wished it was chilled. And I thought it was too good to be true, I liked it so much. But my son was right, it was rich and between the four of us, the one serving was hard to finish. But it really hit the spot for me and I hope its not the last time I get to eat edible cookie dough.

After that, my husband needed a coffee so we headed to one of the Starbucks. Then he wanted to go home, probably because U-Village is awesome but not so awesome on the wallet.
