I enjoy a truly fine dining experience topped off with a visually stunning flambé dessert.
I have had my share of eyebrow singeing, table side prepared delights.
In Houston, there are so many fantastic restaurants that offer flambé experiences, so there is no way I have experienced them all in the last 22 years of living here. I do have a short list of must experience desserts but I also need your recommendations. Please let me know your top three! I will post them.
Here is my short list:
#1. Mont Blanc a la Frisc @ Perry’s Restaurants – “Vanilla ice cream served on a homemade sponge cake with freshly cut strawberries, topped with a flambéed Belgium white chocolate sauce prepared tableside with Bailey’s Irish Cream.”
This is my absolute favorite in Houston. I can only eat a bite but I have never seen any leave the table. Try it, but get a spoon for everyone dining with you.
#2. Nutty d´Angelo @ Perry’s Restaurants -”Crushed pecans flambéed with brown sugar and brandy, served over vanilla ice cream, dipped in white chocolate and toasted almonds.”
I really, really like this dessert as much as #1. Shame it is at the same restaurant, but it is what it is. Perry’s has the magic touch.
#3. Bananas Foster Flambé @ Eddie V’s – A new comer in the Houston Restaurant scene, Eddie V’s spin on an old favorite get’s my vote for taste and presentation.
I will be heading to Brennans to try theirs because I was told it should be on top of my list. Anyone have other suggestions, let me hear from you.
OH, before I go, almost as good as a dessert is the famous Saganaki at Bakkhus Greek restaurant in Kemah.
