Out the Door's Argument-Worthy Ginger Snaps
While we've come to know the various locations of Charles Phan's Out the Door as decent places for dessert, the mini-chain's crystallized ginger snap cookies ($5) are a revelation. They're pleasingly crisp and dark due to the use of molasses, but the little strips of candied rhizome embedded in the cookies keep stealing the show.
These snaps would make a nice addition to one of the restaurant's impressive-looking to-go dinner kits. By way of warning, though, each bag is likely to be a grappling point with your clued-in friends, since some cookies have more candied ginger than others.
