Not A Hostess Ho Ho But Still DeathbedFood®
Urth Caffe is more than a place to get a cup of organic coffee in LA. It’s a requirement if you want to call yourself an Angeleno. It’s men in Ferraris, girls in short shorts and short booties, women in Lulu with matcha tea lattes. It’s Mad men evoking Mad Men, kvetching about Kevin Spacey’s new Netflix contract while savoring Poached Eggs Di Parma.
But more than the scene, there’s a truly urgent reason to go: DeathbedFood Dessert.
In the case, it looks like a modern day Hostess Ho Ho. But no! It’s Urth’s version of Banana Cream Pie and it’s DeathbedFood.
The surprise inside makes it DeathbedFood: butterscotch pudding. Butterscotch is the new salted caramel. Safe to say that Jenni Fields of Pastry Chef Online agrees. She invented Hot Curried Butterscotch Pudding after all. And butterscotch is what sparked me to start this website in the first place, post inhaling The Six’s Butterscotch Crème Brulee in 3.5 seconds.
If you’re in LA, you must drive or Uber there immediately and order it pronto. WALK if you have to! For those outside the 310, 213, 424, 818 or 909, call them at (310) 205-9311. Beg for an overnight, early delivery shipment of the whole entire pie. For the right price, they’ll comply.
