Drowning in Affogato @ Haagen-Daz

If you enjoy coffee and ice-cream, you may want to try an affogato, which means "drowned" in Italian.


I tried a version of affogato during my student days back in Melbourne, where there was a cafe in David Jones which had a wonderful version of 2 full scoops of vanilla ice-cream accompanied with a small cup of espresso, chocolate or mocha.

To drink the affogato, you just simply pour your espresso into the cup filled with vanilla ice-cream and sip your coffee. You don't add any sugar, milk or cream as the ice-cream has all the sugar and cream.


Unfortunately, I can't take coffee as the caffeine gives me some problems and so, I didn't get to taste this yummy treat from Haagen Daz.

However, it is such a pretty thing to photograph... :-)

    Love the close-up shot. Creamy delight for coffee fans.

  2. Looks nice, but I think I prefer just eating the ice cream. LOL!

  3. Nice shots. :)

    Now I know what affogato is. Would love to try it.

    Mei Teng - Yeap, it is....

    Foongpc - I'd guess you're not much of a coffee fan?

    Che-Cheh - Go try it!!
