I just came back from having dessert at Bellucis and am blogging in the act of being on a ‘sugar high’. AMAZING! My flatmate and I ordered Bombe Alaskas. This is an Italian dessert, with a maderia cake base, topped with gelato covered in a meringue. I’ve seen this dessert in many cookbooks and have always wanted to try it. And the Bombe Alaska at Belluci's did not fall short of my expectations.
To start, we were going to order this to take away. However, my work supervisor wisely advised me that if you eat in the restaurant, the dessert comes out with FLAMES. The takeaway price for this dessert is $12 but the sit-in price is $14. It came down to the all-important question – Would we pay $2 for flames? Why, YES! Of course!
In the restaurant, it only took 15 minutes for the dish to come out of the kitchen. And with flames!!! It was exciting to think – those flames are pretty and are they for me? Yes! However, there was a teeny mistake as the restaurant thought that we only ordered one. There was a slightly awkward moment where I was stuffing my face and making orgasmic noises by myself, in front of my flatmate. Within 10 or so minutes, the second one came out and that eased the situation. No biggie.
