Talula's - Beekeeper's Lament & Apple Cider Donuts
Every time I've been to Talula's, I've enjoyed fine selections of craft beer, and I encourage everyone to do the same. But after a flight from Florida back to Newark, all I crave is a drink and a fantastic slice of pizza. For this round, I ordered the Paper Plane. It's a fantastic little drink make with Four Roses Bourbon and some lemon. The taste is lightly sweet, and mostly tart, but definitely serves as an excellent starter. Because it also has amaro nonino, it's also partly a digestive drink and blends in perfectly with the meal ordered, or for after!
The Beekeeper's Lament - my greatest food kryptonite. I've challenged myself so many times to order something else. My desire to have something else almost always seemed quashed by my desire for the sweetness of that honey meeting the spiciness of the calabrian soppresata. It's such a simple design with easy ingredients and yet, the taste is insanely addictive and I can't stop ordering it. Whenever someone asks me about pizza, I immediately recommend this one. Nothings get uneaten here, even the sourdough crust gets demolished.
Since I won't budge on ordering the Beekeeper's Lament, I decided to switch it up a bit and actually try one of the desserts. I'd been recommended the Apple Cider Donuts before and decided to finally give it a shot. What you receive is three decent sized donuts that is easily shareable for two people. The donuts are coated in cinnamon sugar with some whipped cream on the side. With or without the whipped cream, the donuts are excellent. They come out warm, so I assume freshly made to order and don't carry that heavy feeling from having donuts at a donut place.
I definitely recommend the Apple Cider Donuts and, of course, The Beekeeper's Lament. With a distance relatively close to many breweries such as Kane Brewing, Jughandle Brewing, and Little Dog, amongst a few others, it's hard not to give into the desires of having a pizza at Talula's. If you haven't been yet, you should. If you haven't read my previous review from July, here you go. And until you plan to make a trip here, here's another picture of the Beekeeper's Lament to further entice you. Salud!
