I've always had a hard time answering the standard food blogger questions.
"Eat anywhere good lately?" Uhhh...
"What's your favorite restaurant in the city?" Well...
"Where should I eat that's around (destination)?" Let me think...
"Are you sure you're a food blogger" ...No.
One of the most difficult question is "What place has really great desserts?" I would be able to fumble a response to the others, but to this question I really didn't have much of an answer.
My search to find an answer lead me to Hereghty Heavenly Delicious. Out of the way in a strip mall next to the second most awkwardest intersection on Glenwood sits this little posh cafe and bakery that looks like it was ripped right out of Cameron Village.
Wide-eyed and drooling over the display case, I agonized over my decision. Chocolate? Fruit? Cake? Cookie? Macarons? But the gargantuan cream puffs kept catching my eye. The cream was light and not overbearingly sweet. The pastry was firm but not stale, all of which meant it was satisfying and delightful.
Sara had hoped to find a flourless sweet treat at Heregthy and she wasn't disappointed. The person behind the counter was well informed on Heregthy's gluten-free products and directed Sara to the treats that would fit her dietary concerns.
|Chocolate Truffle Flourless Cake|
The chocolate truffle flourless cake called Sara's name. Rich and decedent, the cake is unapologetically chocolatey.
Having gotten caught up in the latest dessert craze, French macarons, I couldn't leave Hereghty without trying theirs. Reports on chowhound claim that the macarons are imported from Belgium. Despite their foreign origins I enjoyed them immensely.
A slight crisp from the crust of the cookie leads to its chewy center while tasty fillings of creams or jams await in the center. The bag of six macarons, as well as everything in Hereghty, is expensive. Like making it rain expensive. But indulgence rarely comes at a convenient price.
