    Adjusting creme brulee recipe?

    Thanks, but I really only need to make 5, I don't want an extra. This is for a dinner at a vacation home and we're leaving the following morning for a 500 mile drive home. Will an extra 1/3 cup milk and an egg yolk work? maybe a spoonful of sugar too?

    Opinion on Morimoto's in Philly?

    I've been there twice. Liked the food, the dessert was so tiny, like a wafer in a pool of sauce. Definitely pass by the desserts. Any other opinions? I had the eggplant appetizer and the yellowtail, both amazing. My SO had the omakase, delish.
