There were many bites to be consumed at Friday's Decadence. The key was to arrive early and explore deep. If you got stuck following the same line of people, you missed out on some lip-smacking eats. Here were our favorites of the night.

5. Raspberry Sherbert Pops from Sweets by Jenni

VIP entry offered limited access tastes. A display from Sweets by Jenni served a dizzying array of eye candy. We watched ladies strategically lounge in close proximity to her chock-full table. Our favorite was a pretty cake pop. The dessert wasn't cloying, but gentle on our taste buds. An ideal bite between salty plates.

4. Ceviche from House of Big Fish and Ice Cold Beer

There were a couple of places serving seafood, but we were hooked on this particular version. A chunky mixture of shrimp and crab, lime and OJ citrus notes married all the flavors. Their garnish of Corn Nuts kept it playful. A recent overhaul of Craig Connole's menu means yet another reason to perch ourselves in Laguna.

3. Lobster Grilled Cheese from Slapfish

The gang headed by Andrew Gruel got a very late start due to electricity woes. So by the time they began cooking, it was a mad rush to serve their line. Smoky chile sauce and melty Jack cheese made for total comfort food. Our bite wasn't the prettiest (hence the photo), but it was what we've come to expect from Slapfish-- sustainable and flavorful.
