The gyoza is fantastic. The turkey and squash were hearty with a zesty flavor that paired well with the citrus ponzu sauce.

The noodles dish is not only presented beautifully, but each bite delivers more flavor. Don’t miss out on this vegan dish, even if you’re not a vegan. Each ingredient is high quality and packed with a ton of rich flavor.

churros filled with dulce de leche

This was a standard churro filled with a dulce de leche cream. The cream was thick and tasty, but there was not a lot there. We did not taste any pumpkin or pumpkin spice flavor, unfortunately. It’s good and easy to eat, but it would be better with icing or sauce.

*NEW* Bog Slime – $14.99

gin, lime juice, and house-made matcha-cardamom syrup in a souvenir cup

Bog Slime was our absolute favorite pre-mixed drink at the event. It’s sweet, but not overly so. It tasted a bit like a subtle sweet and sour mix. The lime came through, but the matcha-cardamom was undetectable.
