One of the recommended desserts at The Chop House - apple strudel stuffed with seasoned apples and pastry cream, served with vanilla ice cream, custard crepe anglaise, and topped with chopped pistachios. Unlike the recommended coconut brioche dessert, this was completely underwhelming. The pastry was thick and cold, plus no knifes were provided so cutting it was a challenge using the limited spoons given to our table. The filling spewed out of the pastry. Overall I felt the pastry tasted too doughy and not flaky enough, while the filling was too sweet (although it makes sense since you’re supposed to eat it together to balance the sweetness with the pastry). I didn’t enjoy this dessert at all and wouldn’t order it again - the coconut brioche is so much better.
