Bouchon SB desserts

We looked up some places to have a nice meal when we were going to Santa Barbara and decided upon Bouchon.  We thought it was affiliated to Bouchon Bakery in NY that sent me to chocolate heaven where I enjoyed that incredible chocolate souffle cake, but it is not the same owner.   Lucky for us, though, it also has incredibly delicious food (made with local ingredients) and the service is top-notch.

Incredible desserts at Bouchon SBWe were seated in the Cork Room and we dined to the soul/funk sounds of Barry White and Diana Ross.  If this doesn’t sound like a place where you could start the evening right, then I don’t know what does!

After an amazing meal, we ordered up two unbelievable desserts.  The first was the Petite Tarlets aux Fruits, which has both peach and blackberry tartlets.  It has a delicious berry coulis (a thick fruit puree), candied walnuts and vanilla bean ice cream from McConnell’s (a Santa Barbara favorite and world-famous shop).  The pastry was tender and flakey, giving way to delicious fresh fruit hidden inside.  This dessert is pure magic and melody.

Bouchon SB Molten Lava Cake The other dessert was the oh-my-goodness Molten Lava Cake.  This dish came with a generous scoop of coffee ice cream from McConnell’s.  The outside of the cake was thick and crispy, making you break through to get to the hot molten chocolate inside.  Barry’s deep voice is seductively singing and your body starts to groove while you take a bit of the crispy cake, warm gooey chocolate and cool ice cream together to create an incredible treat for your senses….MMMMMM!  Come to me, baby!!!


Needless to say, we brought some of our main courses home for leftovers, but there was nothing left of the desserts!  Next time you find your way to Santa Barbara, make sure to stop in to Bouchon SB for a great meal and leave happy 🙂
