Tortilla Pudding at Ticoz

Tired of discovering a restaurant's delectable desserts after already stuffing ourselves full of appetizers and entrees, we're on a mission to find the places where diners should order Dessert First.

This week we headed to Ticoz Resto-Bar to see what irresistible Latin fusion desserts they have to offer. While fond memories of fruit empanadas led us there, it was serendipitous that the seasonal sweet is not currently available. Instead we started with Tortilla Pudding, which definitely did not disappoint.

Ticoz's Tortilla Pudding is concocted similarly to a bread pudding, but the final result is much closer to a cake -- a gooey, cinnamony, can't-stop-shoving-forkfuls-in-your-mouth kind of cake. As the picture demonstrates, this isn't a dessert that's designed to be breathtakingly gorgeous. But that's absolutely fine with us because it's clearly made to be uniquely flavorful, as if the world's best cinnamon roll and grandma's homemade cake had a love child.

Find out what else we had for dessert after the jump.

Upscale Churros
​We also sampled Ticoz's Churros, curious to find them on the menu in such a nice establishment, though they were described as "crunchy donut sticks." That's exactly what they were, and they were definitely better than the typical churro you'll find in a mall or at Costco. For diners who enjoy a simple, plain dessert, the Churros at Ticoz are a great option.

If ordering two desserts to share at $7 each, we'll put our money on two slices of Tortilla Pudding. And eat it while you're there, because this addictive fix won't keep well in a box in the fridge. Plus, we think it deserves royal treatment.

This Tortilla Pudding was rich, creamy, with many layers of flavors from the caramelized bananas to the cool vanilla ice cream. My first visit to Ticos was a great experience, and while the entrees where great ( Cuban sandwich and Blue Corn Tortilla ), this dessert rocked my world.One of the best dessert in the Valley ( the other being Thai Buffet in Mesa Pumpkin Custard with sweet sticky rice and coconut ice cream. )

This dessert is AMAZING. Probably about 3000 calories, but worth destroying your arteries and your diet for.  :)


Is this law Racist? Does it specify brown people?Are the people who agree with this law racist?Are those who want this law enforced racist?The law says nothing of little "brown" people but it explains what is illegal entry. It's not very hard to understand. Why is this law "broken"? Why can it be selectively ignored?Illegal alien includes all people who entered illegally, could be Croation, Russian, Chinese, Irish, Canadians and yes even Mexicans. No one single race or people is referenced in the law. Under Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code, "Improper Entry by Alien," any citizen of any country other than the United States who:Enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers; or Eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers; or Attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact; has committed a federal crime.Violations are punishable by criminal fines and imprisonment for up to six months. Repeat offenses can bring up to two years in prison. Additional civil fines may be imposed at the discretion of immigration judges, but civil fines do not negate the criminal sanctions or nature of the offense.These people cost Pheonix and surrounding cities hundreds of millions to support the education, health and welfare of these illegal immigrants. A landscape worker paid by cash (no taxes) and his wife (a stay at home mom), have been here for 16 years and had 7 children born in the US. Who do you think paid for her medical bills???
