I had a life changing experience today. I had dinner at HG Sply Co. – and then I had dessert.
That, my friends, is a flourless chocolate cake. But here’s where it gets interesting: it’s made from coconut flour. And see that ice cream? It’s made from almond milk.
The menu at HG Sply Co. is heavily influenced by the Paelo diet. Short for paleolithic, this diet essentially cuts out all processed foods, grains, starches, legumes and dairy. What you are left with, supposedly, are foods that humans have evolved to eat by hunting and gathering. I, for one, was born to eat chocolate.
Without giving a full review just yet, I will say that the chocolate cake was the single best dessert I have ever had. Warm with a melt-in-your-mouth texture, it tasted rich and chocolatey without being overly sweet. The vanilla almond milk ice cream was not as rich or creamy as regular ice cream, but it still tasted great with the cake and provided a delicious texture and temperature contrast.
There was no inconsistency in taste or texture that would arouse gluten free or dairy free suspicions. It was pure bliss, and it satisfied a deeply-rooted chocolate-eating instinct.
