The 9 Desserts You Simply Have To Try In Dublin This Month
All about them treats? Searching for sugar? Craving dat caramel?
Us too. Always.
So, we've put together a list of some of the tastiest and most delicious treats our glorious city has to offer.
Read 'em, drool, then go out and tick them all off the list...
1. Baked Nutella cheesecake, San Lorenzo's
Award winning, decadent... and did we mention Nutella?
Served with chocolate brownie ice-cream, salted caramel sauce, this San Lorenzo's dish is good enough to skip dinner for.
2. Chocolate, caramelia and citrus sphere, Fade Street Social
This chocolate sphere is as good at 3D shapes get. Melted hot chocolate and mandarin sauce opens to make way to caramelised chocolate ice cream centred with lemon purée and broken chocolate crumble.
Paired beautifully with Grand Marnier, this Fade Street Social dish is one you won't soon forget.
3. Churros smores, Bow Lane
Yep, churros smores exist – thanks to the good people at Bow Lane.
Served with Nutella and melted marshmallows, this is basically all the good elements of every dessert ever, combined into one.
4. Cannolis, Dolce Sicily
Incredible alone, and even better with tea – cannoli are the gifts that keep on giving.
Filled with either fluffy ricotta or rich chocolate, Dolce Sicily's take on the Italian classic is just heavenly.
5. Panna Cotta, Coppinger Row
Coppinger Row's vanilla panna cotta with poached rhubarb and home made biscotti is light, flavoursome and full of taste. AND it's got one of your five-a-day.
What more could you ask for?
6. Praline and chocolate tartlet, Pearl Brasserie
New to their menu only this year, Pearl Brasserie's newest dessert edition is crispy light and all things heavenly.
Served with yuzu and white chocolate ice cream, and paired perfectly with Banyuls Rimage 2010, Cornet & Cie – this dish ticks pretty much every box.
7. Matcha fondant, Banyi
Many of you will be familiar with matcha due to the glorious and energy-filled green lattés that are to be found around the city, but this version is a whole other kettle of green delights.
Matcha fondants take about 15 minutes to make, but about 15 seconds to eat, due to their interesting flavours and decadence without heaviness.
Banyi's version is incredible. Light, flavoursome and a perfect way to round off a meal.
8. Chocolate mousse, Bang
You may think you know chocolate mousse, but you'll never look at it the same again after sampling Bang's delicious take on the popular dessert.
Fluffy is an understatement with this one. Get involved.
9. Doughnut sticks, Taste at Rustic by Dylan McGrath
Keen to keep up the tradition of sweet and salty desserts, Taste at Rustic serves up their delicious doughnut sticks, cooked in coconut oil with black salt, sake ice cream and a salted miso dipping sauce.
An interesting take on the traditional sweet flavours of a final course – but something you'll want to order all over again once you've finished.
