I’ve been to Deli Sushi and Desserts quite a few times now, usually for lunch breaks. I’ve gone enough times now that they know what I want to order (since I usually get the same thing – how boring of me). Not too long ago I finally tried out some of their desserts! It’s about time, really. When did I become a dessert slacker?!
[belgium waffle / $5]
I had dinner at Deli Sushi and Desserts with my friends Laura and Julia and after gleefully filling our bellies with sushi, we shared a dessert. In particular, we shared the Belgium Waffle. The waffle is served warm and is topped with your choice of 1 ice cream flavor, 1 fruit, and 1 type of sauce. We went with coffee ice cream, strawberries and condensed milk. They even put a stick of strawberry Pocky on top! The sauce was drizzled on the waffle itself and on top of the ice cream. The coffee ice cream was creamy and paired nicely with the slightly tart strawberries, the crispy warm waffles and the sweet condensed milk. Totally yummy!
[coffee ice cream with vanilla macaron ice cream sandwich / $6]
After a recent lunch visit with some co-workers, we all decided to get desserts. It was super warm that day and they didn’t have the A/C on that day, which I jokingly said was some kind of trick to get us to buy ice cream. (It worked.)
I had actually ordered/wanted a regular cookie ice cream sandwich but the guy who was taking the orders wasn’t super familiar with the POS system (his sister, the owner, had gone out to the market) and he got a little confused and instead I got this.
Not that I was complaining.
But geez this macaron ice cream sandwich was HUGE. I picked coffee ice cream (again) and I got it paired with these gigantic vanilla macaron cookies. It’s dusted with cocoa on top. I cut the sucker in half to make it a little easier to eat. The macarons were perfect – light, airy, chewy with that little bit of crispiness on the outer part of the shell. The coffee ice cream is piled HIGH and tasted wonderful with the macaron. Sadly I could only eat half of this and my co-workers had already had their dessert so the second half was wasted (sniff, sniff). Definitely for sharing, I tell you!
I’ve only tried these two desserts so far and the next dessert I’d like to try here is the snow ice! It’s on my foodie “to-do” list (do you have one of those, too?). Read my previous review of Deli Sushi and Desserts here.
