sweet sweets

I’ve been hearing about Pistacia Vera ever since I moved to Columbus, and I ate there for the first time last month. Why I ever waited so long is beyond me — just look at the Chocolate Bombe (pictured above) in all its glory. I can’t even begin to describe the beauty of eating that luscious dessert. But since I went with three other people, we each got a dessert so we got to sample four different treats!

The Flourless Truffle pictured here was amazing. With flavors of chocolate and raspberry and passion fruit, it was a dessert I’d fight someone for. Seriously — I couldn’t believe how delicious it was. Just look at those layers of rich flavor…. And to counter the richness of the Flourless Truffle, I ordered the Lemon Tart (pictured below).

It was a refreshing and light tart that really hit the spot on that particularly humid September afternoon. The crust was also scrumptious. I mean, just look at it! How can you not want to stick a fork in that? And of course, the last of the four desserts: the Pistachio Strawberry Dacquoise.

Yum. I mean, words can’t describe what a tasty treat Pistacia Vera is. I’d recommend it to anyone who’s ever enjoyed anything sweet at all. And as if the food wasn’t enough, this little dessert boutique is decorated in a simple but contemporary style that shows off the old brickwork in the building, but highlights the natural light pouring in from Third Street in the German Village with its floor-to-ceiling windows and wrap-around view. If you haven’t gone here, you really should! (And if you’ve already gone there, go back!)
