Cookie crunch puff - Beard Papa's
Mmm, how I love Beard Papa’s cream puffs! I hadn’t seen this variety before so I decided to try it. The cookie crumble on top was actually really good, but these puffs are plenty good without them too.

Assorted babycakes - Cupcake Royale
These little babycakes are cute, but they’re definitely not as good as their normal sized cupcakes. While the flavors were there, they were kinda dry and lifeless. I bought these for my niece’s birthday and the kids seemed to enjoy them nevertheless.

Chocolate Spoon by Icebergs, Manila PHILIPPINES

After a long day exploring Robinsons Place Manila, we needed a little treat to keep us going. This sundae did just the trick. I don’t think the ice cream was all that great, but I liked the overall flavor of the sundae.

Brownie a la mode – Mozzeria

Brownie a la mode - Mozzeria
Banana, walnut, vanilla ice cream. Pre fixe menu
Mozzeria, San Francisco CA

Mmm, this was pretty good and I’m not even into really sweet desserts. The brownie was moist and not super sweet as brownies go, thank goodness. I also liked that they bruleed the bananas individually. A great way to finish off a less than stellar meal. 🙂

Warm peach sticky bun – Town Hall

Warm peach sticky bun - Town Hall
Bourbon caramel sauce, vanilla ice cream, candied pecans. $9
Town Hall, San Francisco CA

Mmm, this dessert was very tasty and the peaches were great. The sticky bun was a bit too caramelized on the bottom and hard to cut through, but all the flavors were there and the vanilla ice cream helped to soften up everything.

Floating island – Alamo Square Seafood Grill

Floating island - Alamo Square Seafood Grill
Meringue, creme anglaise (vanilla custard), toasted almonds, caramel sauce, strawberry and mint garnish. Daily 3-course prix fixe $14.50
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!
