The choice I had was between fruit sorbet or deep-fried Oreos. Will someone please explain to me the logic of batter-dipping and immersing in hot oil an innocent Oreo? All I wanted was chocolate ice cream, so I asked the waitress if I could get that instead of sorbet. No, she said emphatically.
But, she added, the fried Oreos did come with a little dish of vanilla ice cream. OK, I’d settle for vanilla, but could she just bring the dish of ice cream and hold the Oreos?
Not a chance; if I wanted to get the dessert included on the dinner, I’d have to take it as printed.
In the end, the waitress brought the flavor of my choice — chocolate. With a plate of batter-dipped deep-fried Oreos, of course.
