      I love Roy's Lava cake but did not know that they have a souffle. Are they the same?

      1. re: sdv231

        Roy's calls it "Roy’s Melting Hot Chocolate Soufflé" on their website. With the raspberry coulis and vanilla ice cream. Maybe the same thing you're thinking of?

          Roy's is a wonderful lava cake -- with flowing chocolate in the middle -- but the cake is very souffle-like. It is not a traditional souffle in the sense that you dig into from the top and/or add cream.

        2nd this. (Though the last couple times, we've preferred their pineapple upside down cake!)

      3. I like the ones at the Tam O'Shanter.

          I find Tam O'Shanter's souffle to be hit or miss...excellent on evening and dry and unpleasant another...and since they still serve CC Browns Hot Fudge Sundaes...there is no other dessert here for me!

        2. The two best I've had were at Tradition by Pascal and Marche Moderne, both in Orange County. Magnifique!

          1. I like the one at Arnie Morton's a lot.

              I second this...maybe the best in the city!
