The List: Canoe

There are so many reasons to love the Creative Loafing Best Dish List, but among my favorites is the way it "forces" me to order dishes I would otherwise avoid. Honestly, I would never, ever order a corndog (the Fryinstein) made with a beef frank, kielbasa, and Italian sausage unless I had a  GOAL to eat one and made the effort to try.

Similarly, ordering a popcorn sundae isn't exactly at the top of my personal taste list. I'm more naturally drawn to a fruity dessert or, in the case of a visit to Canoe, the chocolate grotto (DEEEEvine!!!).  However, the challenge must be met, and so I order the sundae.  Fortunately, this was a belated birthday treat so I felt a little less indulgent. Now I had made myself a promise I wouldn't eat it all. But then I took a closer look:

The picture only tells 1,000 of the 5,000 words you could use for this deliciousness.

Sweet. Salty. Crunchy. Caramelly.

Lots of "y" - oh so good. I won't ever go back to the chocolate grotto. And I doubt that I'll ever share.

The only thing better than the dessert, was the company!Thanks Amy for always treating me so well!!!
