Chocolate frozen custard - Sheridan's Frozen Custard

This cone was super cute! I liked the chocolate flavor and the texture of the frozen custard. It was very hot outside so it started melting pretty quickly, lol!

I really enjoyed this dessert. Under the hardened chocolate shell was a silky, coffee flavored custard that just melted in your mouth. Such a wonderful way to end a glorious meal at Zahav. Thank you, Zahav! Until next time.

Tous Les Jours, Ho Chi Minh City VIETNAM

This was a nice little sweet treat for our morning walk to the War Remnants Museum. It got SO hot that we had to stop at Tao Dan Park for some much needed shade. The custard pastry was SO tasty and moist. This bakery was really popular since it had branches all over the city.

Alamo Square Seafood Grill, San Francisco CA

This was a very simple, light and elegant dish and it tasted really good! I don’t think I’ve ever had this before but I can see that it’s a great cost effective way to put out a delicious dessert. You really need the toasted almonds and caramel sauce to elevate it though. Noms!

This pomme d’amour really is a delicious dessert for breakfast! It’s small enough that it isn’t a morning sugar overload, and it’s super tasty. The custard filling is delicate and smooth, and pairs perfectly with a warm cup of coffee. Noms!
