Unusual Flavors

13 Aug

Over the weekend, we had the most unusual after-dinner dessert. We decided to visit a fine desserts cafe after googling it up, and decided to try it out since it was just a short drive from the mall where we had dinner.

The menu wasn’t extensive but enough with the usual offerings of dessert, coffee and tea. As always, we shared our portions.

The single scoop was rather interesting – ice cream made from Guinness Stout, yes the stout beer and contained alcohol. I still can’t get into my sorbet (there’s still half of the pint in the freezer) so I have resorted to indulging in small intake of real ice cream.

The other dessert choice was an Apple Strudel with a scoop of Black Pepper Mango ice cream! The strudel was normal like any other strudel but this ice cream…. obviously we’ve never had anything like it before! What a combination.

Comparing both flavors, the three of us preferred the stout ice cream. Although the crushed pepper was too strong and totally subdued the mango flavor, I liked that the pepper provided a nicer crunch than the pistachio bits. Very unusual.

I foresee this will be our new favorite haunt for dessert if we feel like having some dessert after dinner regardless of future dinner venues.
