oatmeal trip report: bouley

tried the oatmeal at bouley this morning, based on the awesome article from last week.

totally not my thing, took 2 bites, realized I was going to be sick if I ate the whole thing, and went to whole foods for bacon and eggs instead. the review was a good description, as it's basically a cupful of cream, but there felt like there were not very many oats, which made the texture jellylike and just weird. there also just wasn't a lot of flavor to it, apart from the whole "hot cream" thing. also, at 6.50, it was really overpriced.

I'm looking forward to trying some of the other places in the article, as I really like oatmeal, but bouley just wasn't for me.
