Extraordinary Desserts

Yesterday I decided to escape the LA gloom by taking a quick trip down to San Diego. The sun was out, the views were gorgeous and best of all, a friend happened to bring up that we were close to an amazing dessert place in San Diego. My reaction: WE MUST GO!!

Extraordinary Desserts, a dessert and wine bar, was amazing! They didn’t even look at me twice as I snapped tons of pictures of their baked goods (I have a feeling they get this a lot). Here are some of the “best of’s”.

Enjoy!

Obviously looking wasn’t enough, so we each ordered a dessert to see if they were as good as they looked.

Our personal favs were the Napoleon and the Strudel – very different desserts, but perfect for what they are in every sense.

The Napolean doesn’t use the traditional Mille Fuille as its separators between the fruit and cream. Instead they tasted like something similar to a short-bread cookie. The cream filling was abundant but not overly sweet. This dessert is perfect for the dessert lover as well as those that tend to not want something overly sweet.

The Chocolate Strudel was perfection! Every element of this dessert was considered and executed beautifully. The strudel was heated, allowing the chocolate layers to melt into the rest of the strudel and the presentation was stunning.
