Quick reports: Sugar Sweet Sunshine, Latin Clinton Restaurant, Cocoa Bar, Babycakes, Roasting Plant

Sugar Sweet Sunshine: I tried the pumpkin cupcake there previously and really liked it. This time, though, I tried the pistachio, which had a buttercream frosting on it that was far too buttery. Really disappointing.

Clinton Latin Restaurant: Decent but unremarkable mexican/latin food. I had huevos rancheros, which were served with a large mound of rice and beans and a ton of cheese covering them. The actual eggs were on some fried tortillas that were kind of leathery.

Cocoa Bar (on the lower east side): I tried the white hot chocolate here, which tasted a lot like warm milk with white cocoa in it. Not bad, not great. Decent.

Babycakes: I tried the red velvet cupcake, which is gluten- and dairy-free, at this vegan bakery. It was tasty, though the various flavorings gave it a hint of a bitter flavor that gave away its ingredients. The frosting was dense and tasty, though, and the cake itself was kind of addictive. This is a tasty cupcake.
