Coppelia: Avocado Ice Cream, Avocado Caesar Salads

Wednesday, May 25, 2011 9 No tags Permalink 0

Avocado Ice Cream. Fresh Avocado. Olive Oil Drizzles. Maldon Salt. Whipped Cream.

Does it really get much better than that?

I don’t think so. I mean…unless you add…

…an impossibly tender, more creamy than sweet Mango Dulce de Leche Cake…

…and one boozy Banana Tiramisu. Desserts by Pichet Ong for Coppelia. Awesome.

Savory food? Oh yes, we had some of that too. It was lunch after all. Fish Tacos with crispy flouder and chipotle cole slaw for Jess…

…and the Aguacate Caesar for myself. Romaine, avocado, caesar dressing, cotija cheese, and mojo (aka spicy) garlic croutons. Substantial enough to make a light meal. Am always up for a good caesar salad and Pearl Oyster Bar is my go-to spot, but I’ll be visiting Coppelia more often as well. Especially because I can follow it up with avocado ice cream and olive oil…you can never over have too much avocado.

Yup, that’s a huge braided hunk of challah bread in the back ;)

    Hi Soos! The lime was a subtle touch that made a big different. I would love this dessert blended into a milkshake hahahHi Ada! Agreed!! :)Hi Evan! Haha it is reason alone! Definitely double check to see if they still have it in stock before you go this summer – I know Pichet is always changing this desserts. But this one is definitely a keeper!Hi Morangao! Thanks! :)
