Dessert of the Week: Chocolate Lava Cake at O'Malley's
The homemade chocolate lava cake is moist and opens to a warm, gooey center. The key to lava cake is the balance between cake and soufflé--something O'Malley's has perfected. The chocolate center of the cake pours out--as it must, if you want to create that "lava" effect. The cake was accompanied by vanilla ice cream and a simple raspberry sauce, which complemented the heavy chocolate flavors.
Ireland may influence some of O'Malley's menu, as well as its wood-paneled decor, but this American dessert is worth the stop. And it goes great with a cold Guinness. (Hell, what doesn't?)
