All right, listen. I know this doesn't look like anything special. But you'll just have to trust me on this because this is the BEST DESSERT IN NEW YORK CITY.
It's on the dessert menu at Cowgirl (519 Hudson Street) and it's entirely worthy of your praise. It basically looks like a baked potato but it ain't - the "potato" is actually this hard-as-hell vanilla ice cream (and I mean hard) rolled in cocoa powder. I love it when it's hard like a rock like that. None of that soupy trash here. The "sour cream" is whipped cream, the "green chives" are coloured nuts and the "butter" is fondant icing. Essentially? Heaven on a plate. I swear to God you'll love it. I took my boyfriend here once for my birthday because this was what I was craving and he casually made some jokes here and there beforehand, but then he ate it and understood.
It's incredible. I'll forever be grateful to the great Paul for taking me here for the first time.
