Brazil Nuts

Superlative churrascaria in the enchanted kingdom of Ahwatukee

The dessert cart at F & B is a thing of majesty to behold, and I enjoyed the three sweets I tried: a chocolate mousse, a passion fruit mousse, and two chocolate brigadeiros. A brigadeiro is a sort of chocolate truffle, coated with chocolate sprinkles on the outside, and sticky and dense on the inside. I downed these black bonbons with a pint of Xingu and was quite pleased with myself. However, the chocolate mousse is fantastic as well, and so thick it could double for a cake's frosting. The passion fruit mousse is lighter and a better palate cleanser than the other two, but I want more brigadeiros, bub. And dagnabbit, I'm even prepared to return to Ahwatukee to get them. Now if that ain't dedication, what is?
