This week's Monday Munchies follows our dinner at Mie N Yu: Georgetown Scoops. The new ice cream shop opened up on July 4th weekend, and since then has been a fairly happening spot, at least to my untrained casual eye as I walk up and down Pennsylvania Avenue. On this occasion, looking for a light dessert, Official Friend of DCWD Juju and I stopped by for a scoop: me of the Napoleon (amaretto ice cream and black cherries), and her of Dulce de Leche.
In a word, delicious. Mine was creamy with a nice almost smoky taste, and one that let the natural flavor of almonds and the cherries come forward. Hers avoided what the problem that most dulce de leche ice creams/froyos suffer from: being overly sweet. Other than the fairly uncomfortable bench out front, a great place with very good ice cream.
Taste Test: 4 Forks (out of 5)
