Hello, it’s me. I’ve thought about us for a long long time…

I love that song, and I love doing Danny Dines. So, I am happy to be back in the swing of things!

Anyway, let’s get to it. This week I had the pleasure of going to Lily and Liam Bistro to try some of their delicious food.

I had 20 submissions from you all asking me to check out Lily and Liam’s, and I finally got around to it. I have a list, and I am slowly making my way down it. Thank you for being patient!

I will be honest with you, I did not know Lily and Liam Bistro existed. As soon as I walked in, I saw their homemade bakery items and tried their Biscochito Tres Leche Cake. Well, I quickly realized that I was missing out!

You heard me right, they have a Biscochito Tres Leche Cake, and it was perfectly moist, creamy, sweet, cinnamony and had some anise seeds sprinkled on top.

If I could eat a Biscochito Tres Leche Cake everyday, I’d be a happier man.

But I did not stop there. I asked my wonderful server, Isaac, “What’s the most popular item here?”

Isaac listed off some of their amazing original dishes, and I decided to get the N.M. Baby.

The N.M. Baby includes a Dutch Baby, braised short rib, eggs, Muenster cheese, cheddar cheese, avocado, green chile and au jus broth on the side.

I learned that a Dutch Baby is a thicker pancake that is baked in the oven instead of the skillet. A Dutch Baby is also known as a German pancake. I did not know this so thank you, Lily and Liam Bistro staff, for dropping some knowledge on me.

As you can guess, it was delicious.

I poured au jus broth all over my plate. The braised short rib was soft and decadent, the green chile and avocado were fresh, and the Dutch Baby tasted like a custardy-thick crepe.

I liked the vibe of this spot. It is the perfect place to meet a friend, read a book and just start the day.

I will definitely be back and encourage you all to venture there as well!

If you have any questions on their food or bakery, call 505-340-3309.
