Unexpectedly delicious dessert -

We were at a late movie a week ago and wound up at Maria's Italian Kitchen on Pico: not a first choice but my minestrone soup and meatball appetizer were quite good. At the end of dinner Mme Zoe who has a notoriously sweet Danish tooth asked for the menu and ordered the Apple Crumble with ice cream. Along came an enormous soup plate filled with well flavored and crunchy apples covered in the most addictive crumble with globs of really good ice cream and four spoons and this was the scene of attack of the dessert, it was that good. What a surprise:)

  1. Was the apple part heated? If so, you have described one of my favourite desserts -- thanks for the heads-up!

    1. re: khh1138

      Apples were indeed heated - just delicious.

    2. Admittedly I haven't been in a while, but I am a fan of the cheesecake at the Pasadena location. I too was surprised at how good it was.
