Five Destination Desserts in Phoenix
Gallo Blanco's chocolate pudding.
Not long ago, a friend posed a good question. He wanted to know where he could get dessert in central Phoenix. And not just a meal-ender. This needed to be dessert worth leaving the house for.
Here are Chow Bella's five suggestions for destination desserts in Phoenix.
1. Postre de chocolate at Gallo Blanco Cafe
This chocolate pudding isn't just for kids, though the edgy Clarendon Hotel will make you feel young (make sure you check out the wall of water by the pool). This is the richest pudding we've ever tasted, topped with homemade marshmallow fluff and graham crackers for requisite dipping. You might choose to pair it with one of Gallo Blanco's killer margaritas. Go ahead. We won't judge.
2. Souffle at Vincent on Camelback
Call ahead, and maybe the kind folks at Vincent's will pop your souffle in the oven before you arrive. Either way, it's well worth the 15 minute wait for Vincent Guerithault's signature dessert -- chocolate tart, lemon crepe or Grand Marnier souffle. Enjoy it in the low-key but elegant dining room and feel like a king or a queen.
