Arroz con Leche at Sala One Nine: I grew up eating the Colombian version of rice pudding, arroz con leche, which uses evaporated and/or sweetened condensed milk for maximum creaminess, and is served warm with plenty of cinnamon sprinkled on top. Sala One Nine, an endearing Spanish restaurant in Flatiron, offers a nice twist on this dessert. Its arroz con leche is made with bomba rice (a short-grain variety used for paella), which stays firm amid velvety pudding flavored with cinnamon and brandy. A caramelized sugar topping and blood-orange compote liven up the dish.
