Dessert Truck

Tried the chocolate peanut butter mousse with caramel popcorn garnish. Not bad. Beats a Reese's.

        St Marks Place (8th St) and 3rd Ave outside the Starbucks, across from the McDonald's. They get there around 6pm and leave around 11 or midnight. Sometimes they run out of food earlier. The nice woman working a few weeks ago told me that they'd probably stay in that spot for good now.

          We went to University and 8th on Friday night after dinner at Serge's. I wanted the chocolate with salt dessert or something I had not yet tried. Now I know why it was not there!

        i tried it a few days ago, i wasn't wow'd by the chocolate peanut butter mousse, i mean it wasn't bad, but nothing crazy (over hyped). I also tried one of the "sodas", but it was flat and tasted kind of like pink lemonade.

        that said i kind of want to go back and try the other stuff

          I tried the chocolate bread pudding and it was heavenly but dare I say it, too chocolatey? I wish there was more bread involved so it didn't seem like I was just eating a ton of chocolate at the end. The molten cake is amazing!

            i tried the molten cake, bread pudding and choco pb mousse but wasn't wowed by any of it. feel like all those need a few more components and lacked texture but for $5, it beats desserts at a lot of restaurants. i want to try the tapioca dessert.

            I was not impressed... tried the chocolate pb mousse and the goat cheesecake. I agree with the other posts that the mousse was ok, nothing special. Not a fan of the cheesecake! I like goat cheese, but the taste was overpowering, and the overly-sweet caramel sauce did not help. It was too much. Perhaps I should have gone with the bread pudding?

            Go to the ChikaLicious outpost instead. Although a bit pricey, I was completely wow'ed by the bread pudding to go. Each bite was heaven!
