Fried Ice Cream


I was recently in Prague when I was navigating the narrow and windy streets behind Tyn Castle in Old Town Square and stumbled upon a small family-owned Czech restaurant.

Unfortunately I don't remember the name of the place so I won't waste my time trying to critique it here. Chances are you'll never find it anyway. I'll save all the scrumptious details of my meal for my travel journal and leave you with this picture which I feel captures the innovation and quality of each course.

This dessert captured three dimensions of contrasting qualities. 
1. Cold ice cream v. Warm shell and hot chocolate sauce
2. Soft melted ice cream and whip cream v. Crunchy shell 
3. Tangy raspberry v. Sweet vanilla

Does this remind anyone from Pasadena of Mijares?
