When you go to a place called Extraordinary Desserts, you have high expectations. With two locations in San Diego, this is where we landed as soon as we arrived there.
After being greeted, they gave us a pad so we would look around and write down our choices before being seated at a table or at the bar, depending on availability. Problem was that there were too many yummy choices there, not that classic at the exception maybe of the lemon bars or chocolate chip cookies that had lots of chocolate. We decided to try the following:
A shaken cold pressed coffee that is a café au lait served cold and prepared in a shaker.
A crème brûlée bun that was my favorite. The brioche bun was airy and light, filled with a crème brûlée that had a nice vanilla flavor. I recommend it!
A double chocolate chunk shortbread that we did not like at all, being quite dry and that might have been stale.
Jodi of course could not resist ordering their coconut coscada that is a coconut haystack dusted with confectioner sugar. Although I am not a huge fan of coconut, I liked it.
I admit that I would have tried other stuff if jodi did not stop me as there were so many mouth watering choices there. Extraordinary Dessert is truly...extraordinary and I hope they will open an outpost in NYC! If not, I’ll make sure I keep that as a must have visit when coming to San Diego!
Enjoy (I did)!
