As promised, here’s the second part of the desserts and sweets that I consumed on my NYC trip. For those of you who know S personally, you should be impressed that I managed to get him to go to so many dessert places with me! (Hint: promising that we could buy milk tea before or after helped convince him.)
One of the places I was most looking forward to was the famous Dominique Ansel Bakery.
We arrived in the afternoon, which meant of course that Cronuts were all gone. There were still plenty of things that I wanted to try, though.
One of the specials at Dominique Ansel when we visited was the Frozen S’more – a torched marshmallow with chocolate feuilletine and vanilla custard ice cream at the center, on a smoked willow wood stick. I thought that this was quite a yummy treat, though I think I still prefer the traditional s’more.
The cannelé de Bordeaux here is quite famous – the version here is delightful, with a perfectly caramelized crust and a tender, eggy, soft center. I wish that I had taken a better cross-section photo to share, but you’ll just have to trust me.
