Steakhouses have long been acknowledged for indulgent if predictable cakes: tall cheesecakes, key lime pie, crème Brulee, carrot cake, and always something decadently chocolate. LongHorn Steakhouse restaurants will quickly provide a dessert that builds on steak as the principal occasion. We’re speakme steak for dessert.
Beginning July 1, the steakhouse emblem will start serving Steak & Bourbon Ice Cream: vanilla ice cream swirled with bourbon caramel and bits of steak. When it comes to the desk, it also can be topped with bourbon caramel sauce, whipped cream, and “steak sprinkles.” It will sell for $three.Ninety-nine at eating places in New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Nashville, Cleveland, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, and, yes, Houston. LongHorn has placed in Houston, Pearland, Sugar Land, Humble, Webster, Katy, and Spring.
The eating place that prides itself on by no means serving frozen steak is bending its personal regulations a bit for the ice cream studded with bits of frozen steak that has been grilled and pro with a proprietary “char seasoning.”
The ice cream is available for a restricted time.

What are the common cakes that Thais devour? These love cakes (called Khanom in Thai). The well-known dessert is Mango with Sticky Rice. However, it is a seasonal dessert, around April to June. Deep-fried banana fritters (Gluay Tod in Thai) or bananas in coconut milk (Gluay Buat Chee) are also widely recognized desserts in Thai eating places the U.S. There are all kinds of cakes in Thailand, both non-seasonal and seasonal, from deep-fried to steamed. Some of the maximum common Thai desserts consist of the egg-yolk desserts; Thong Yip (Pinched Gold), Thong Yod (Drop of Gold), and Foi Thong (Golden Threads). Thong, without a doubt, way Gold. The color of these 3 cakes is a yellow-like golden color from the egg yolk and is used to signify prosperity and auspiciousness. These “three musketeers” desserts are often utilized in wedding ceremonies or commemoration of a new house as properly.
Khanom Chan or layered dessert is any other common dessert. The call of the dessert comes from the fact that it has nine layers with color variations. The dessert uses the handiest 2 colorations: white and a mild tone of a shade like inexperienced or crimson. White is used in every other layer. This dessert is also used in essential ceremonies like weddings or the grand commencing of a new enterprise. Thais believe the wide variety “nine” is an auspicious quantity that represents development and advancement.
One of my preferred cakes is Luk Choob. Made from mung dal beans, this dessert is a set of miniature replicas of fruits and veggies. The fruits and vegetables are colorful and glossy, artistically carved, and styled with vegetable dyes and glazed inside the gelatin-like agar-agar. Bua Loy Benjarong is some other exciting dessert. Bua Loy Benjarong is gluten balls in coconut milk, a dish that has been with Thailand for over two hundred years. The little balls, the end of the pinky, are crafted from sticky rice flour blended with natural hues. Benjarong refers to five herbal shades: green (from pandanus leaf), crimson (from taro and Chitoria Tematea Linn flower), yellow (from pumpkin), blue (from Chitoria Tematea Linn flower), and white (from jasmine water).
