Philly's Best Dessert?

phillybakingqueen | Aug 5, 2010 05:20 PM

I hardly ever order dessert in restaurants. I either deem the dessert "not worth the calories" or, since I am a baker myself, I think (quite arrogantly) that I can do it better.

However, there is one restaurant where dessert does not disappoint -- Alma de Cuba. It is not one of my favorite restaurants. The ceviches are perfect, but otherwise I find the food heavy, the drinks uninspired, and the service spotty.

The desserts at Alma de Cuba are amazing -- every one of them. The chocolate cigar is original and delicious (even for non-chocolate lovers like me), but my two favorites are the tapioca pudding (served in a young coconut with a guava bar cookie on the side) and the dulce de leche crepes, which are served with little nuggets of crunchy goodness inside and as a garnish on the plate. Sweet perfection!

What's your favorite restaurant dessert? There must be more out there that are worth it??!
