Dessert alert: date cake at Gjelina

When ordering dessert at Gjelina, I usually don't make it past the justly famous butterscotch pudding. But the rather innocuous sounding "date cake with ginger gelato" is definitely worth a dessert detour while it's on the menu. It bears a strong resemblance to sticky toffee pudding, but the ginger gelato really makes it something special, balancing the warm, sweet, gooey cake with a serious cool blast of fresh ginger.
