Dessert by the Trough

I have written many entries over the year on the size of US portions. Here is another one. On Friday we went with another couple to Compadres a great Mexican restaurant in Napa. After a delightful meal, a sampler plate of desserts was ordered. We expected to get small samples of several sweet dishes; there is a clue in the name after all. What we actually got was a trough with full size helpings of the desserts.

Desert Sampler

There is fried ice-cream, brownie with ice cream, banana in cinnamon coated tortilla (with ice cream), and a light creme brûlée (oddly enough with ice cream)

Maybe we should not have been so surprised, as the evening started with this drink being delivered to me.

This is a Cazuela; a mixture of two rums, tequila, brandy, juice of orange, lemon, and lime, topped up with 7-up. Very tasty and not compatible with driving home; fortunately I was not in the role of designated driver.

  1. The size of the drink reminds Dave and I of the Giggling Marlin in Cabo San Lucas, many years ago when we were at the age to close a place down. Apparently when one ordered a margarita at this establishment, it meant ENDLESS REFILLS as when our waitserver would note a slight reduction in the amount of liquid in our glasses he promptly topped us off – until around 3 am when we stumbled back our harborview room (me, in an appropriate fit of giggles during said stumble).

    Desserts look very pretty and I am experiencing a vicarious sugar rush! Must try this place.
