Dennis and I went to Extraordinary Desserts the other night. Since it was night, we basically passed it up the first time because we couldn’t see it. Thanks to the advice of my friend, who said to look for the Kung Fu Restaurant sign next door, we found it on the second go. Once we parked, we found that there was a long line out the door! This place MUST be good with so many people here for just desserts. After taking a look at the desserts on display and the advice of ordering one chocolate dish and one non-chocolate dish, we decided on the special of the night, Warm Nectarine Pie ($6.50), and a slice of Triple Mousse Chocolate Torte ($7.50).
The Warm Nectarine Pie looked very appetizing and pleased my palete. The nectarines on the outside weren’t mushy at all, and the insides were as sweet and tasty as grandma’s pie. The dessert included sour cream ice cream on the side, but I found that to be tasteless and boring. I think the server, due to habit, added it to the order even though we didn’t pay for it at the front (unless the price already included it).
The chocolate mousse was delicious too, with sprinkles of hazelnuts on the outside. Being a portion sensitive eater of chocolate (I can only handle so much chocolate), I savored the first couple of bites of the cake before the rich chocolate taste drove me away. Chocolate lovers would probably enjoy it throughout. Overall, this place was very nice and romantic, and presentation-wise, the desserts looked fabulous and the tastes matched the presentation.
