As the seasons change and the summer heat disappears, there’s one thing that is sure to keep brightening everyone’s day… dessert! Every meal should be concluded with something to satisfy your sweet tooth so here are our six stunning dessert recommendations to make this upcoming fall as sweet as can be.
Whether they’re carved, painted or made of plastic, pumpkins will surely be found everywhere as fall approaches… especially on your plate! Ignore the traditional pumpkin pie and head over to barleymash in the Gaslamp for their Pumpkin Crème Brulee served with brown butter cream cheese, whipped cream and chocolate-dipped pumpkin seed brittle.
Searching for something European? Look no further than Bellamy’s in Escondido, an upscale restaurant that delivers modern California cuisine infused with French influence. Try Bellamy’s Signature Chocolate Bisou made with crunchy praline, chocolate mousse and semi-sweet chocolate sorbet for a dessert that’s the crème de la crème.
If Latin flavors are what you seek this fall season, Sirena Cocina Latina in Little Italy offers innovative recipes, vibrant décor and daily specials. It’s the perfect place to feast on something not only spicy and savory, but also sweet and sugary. Top off your culinary fiesta by ordering the Raw Carrot Cake, a dried fruits cake prepared with cashew custard, orange puree, berry sauce and orange sorbet. The best part? This dessert is both vegan and organic!
Pizza is definitely a dish to be enjoyed year-round and Woodstock’s offers an ultra-sugary take on your typical slice. Spoil yourself with a taste of the sweetest pie they have to offer, their Cinnabread, smothered with brown sugar, cinnamon and icing. Give it some extra fall flair by adding apples, blueberries, bacon or caramelized pecans.
Just because summer is over doesn’t mean you can’t return to the coast. Make your way to Pacific Beach where you’ll find Backyard Kitchen & Tap, an American eatery that provides large outdoor areas complete with fire pits and live music to keep your nights warm and cozy. Sweet and light, indulge in their Pineapple Upside Down Cake with caramel and whipped cream to give your dining experience a naturally-sweet ending.
