10 Favorite Desserts in Phoenix
Oftentimes, a meal out of the house isn't complete without dessert -- not just any dessert, but one that's so good you'll never forget it, one that will make guest appearances in your dreams for a good, long time. To help satisfy your sweet tooth, we're offering up our 10 of our favorite desserts in the Valley.
Dayvid LeMmon Lemon Tart with Meringue Gelato from our #1 Pick
10. Fried Bananas and Coconut Ice Cream from Soi 4 Bangkok Eatery
This dish might sound simple, but it's really something special. The bananas are fried into crispy little delicious spheres, which creates a nice presentation and also makes them easier to share. Really, though, everyone at the table will be fighting over the house-made coconut ice cream in the middle. This frozen treat is dreamy, creamy, and very coconutty. Coconut can be a mild flavor that's more of a sidekick than a star, but with Soi 4's ice cream, coconut takes the main stage.
9. Spumoni Americano from Cowboy Ciao
Cowboy Ciao's dessert menu is an all-around winner. What really knocked us out was the Spumoni Americano -- a delicious twist on the classic Italian ice cream topped with strawberry cake batter semifreddo, pistachio marshmallow fluff, and, for good measure, a chocolate pretzel. If that weren't enough, the whole creation sits atop a chocolate shortbread cookie.
8. Chocolate Torte with Sorrel Ice Cream from Quiessence
7. Tortilla Pudding from Ticoz Resto-Bar
6. Crepas de Cajeta from Barrio Café
