i had to mention this new one that we've found. it's a greek dessert called "ickmick". i have no idea how to spell it, being of the greek alphabet.
it's a base, or crust if you will, of toasted shredded wheat (not the cereal, but close), drizzled with honey, then topped with a sweet white custard and slivered almonds. a local greek restaurant starting making it, and dw and i are hooked.
funny thing, the first piece was free, but now the price keeps going up.
where's the queso fresco...

I stay away from sweets as much as possible... but my most favorite is creme brulee with seasonal fresh fruit and a chocolate shard, or infused creme brulee with Chamboard or berries or anything yummy. From here, it goes downhill... I am a sucker for a hot cinnamon roll or hot cherry turnovers!!!! Not really deserts... but a sweet that I just can't say "NO" to.

i tried to ask, but the waitresses are either nasty or clueless in this place. good food tho.
i'll have to try to ask a chef or the owner next time, sattie. i hope they speak english, or even spanish. english is often a second or third language around here.

I got it, Bucky! It's Ekmek Kadaifi!

I googled the ingredients you listed and wa-la! Here's one version - it doesn't use honey, but a sweet syrup. Looks great!
