ChikaLicious Dessert Club: A Sweet Tooth's Paradise

The Chikalicious: Vanilla Soft-Serve with Frosted Pecan, Roasted Pistachio, Valrhona Chocolate, and Creme Brûlée Caramel Custard at ChikaliciousHello all! Today, we are gathered here today to talk about some desserts as sweet as my biceps (jk). But first, let's learn a little about the shop that serves these satisfying eats. The original ChikaLicious Dessert Club is located in the heart(...ish) of East Village in New York City. Across from this establishment is the ChikaLicious Dessert Bar, a 20-seat, open-kitchen eatery that serves a 3-course dessert prix-fixe menu (with optional wine/coffee/tea pairing). Recently, it has expanded its Dessert Club to West Village. It's ownership consists of the Tillmans: Chika Tillman, the chef who has worked in Gramercy Tavern and finds comfort in burgers and sushi after a long day of work, and Don Tillman, the sommelier that pairs dessert with drinks for a wholesome dining experience. #relationshipgoals

Anyway, let's talk about these desserts. In this visit, I ordered The ChikaLicious. Why? Because the description sounded like a love song. FEAST your eyes: Vanilla soft-serve with frosted pecan, roasted pistachio, Valrhona chocolate, and crème brûlée caramel custard (see above)... Read that and tell me you don't want to eat it. If you can, I DON'T BELIEVE YOU.. unless you're allergic to dairy or nuts. Come on. Okay, let's break it down. The creamy vanilla soft-seve is what world peace tastes like. The roasted pistachios and frosted pecans make all other nuts look like they need to get their lives together. The Valrhona pearls are these little fancy balls of crunchy chocolate, perfect for bombarding your ice cream with deliciousness. And, don't even get me started on the crème brûlée caramel custard. I would BATHE in this if I could. I'll stop talking now before I embarrass myself. 

Next, the Hot Apple Crisp with Vanilla Ice Cream... I feel like I don't even have to talk about this one. It's pretty self-explanatory. However, I do want to share my favorite part about this. It's when I get the perfect amount of hot pie and cool ice cream in each bite. Then, I get really emotional. Then, my friends leave me. Then, a few minutes later, I realize that I am alone in the shop sobbing about how good it tastes. Just kidding. That doesn't happen.. all the time.
