We stopped by The Disgruntled Chef for desserts after a smoking hot meal at Samy's Curry. The Dempsey-fixture recently refreshed its menu, so I thought it about time for a revisit.
Cheese aficionados will love the Roquefort Magnum ($10), an unexpected but ingenious marriage of the stinky blue cheese with honey and dark chocolate. But like how opposites attract, this icy heady concoction worked!
A mainstay, the Chocolate Fondant ($16) with vanilla ice-cream, was, unfortunately, a smidge overdone, so even the glorious peanut butter laced chocolate goo couldn't quite mask the charred undertones. That said, the lava was sumptuously nuanced, and torched banana brulee excellent.
