6. Todd English’s “OMG”

It’s sweet, it’s bitter, it’s salty, it’s and explosion of dessert flavors! Also, when it’s hot, it can get cold and when it’s cold, it can get hot. Basically, it plays with all your senses. At the center of the entire ensemble is a small lava cake that is still piping hot and oozes with melted chocolate when you slice through it. Around the cake are silky pudding, cruchy milo cereals, and chocolate ice cream.

5. Casa Italia’s “Crunchy Mocha Gelato”
For the thrill-seeker, a twist on your dessert, is Casa Italia’s Liquorato. In this dessert, single or double shot of liquor of your choice will be poured on your gelato. A favorite is the Crunchy Mocha Gelato in Sambuca. Their combination enhances the flavor of the gelato.
