Comment of the Day
Yesterday, Katharine Shilcutt named No. 33 on her list of 100 favorite dishes in Houston, The Montrose at Amy's Ice Cream. Commenter Gil Valasquez, for one, agreed with the choice:
Thank god someone else likes this one. I was worried about this when I ordered it, as it looked wholly strange. I figured as that I am now an EaDo resident, not Montrose, I wanted to taste what a tribute was like to my "old country" as I call it. This was handed to me, I balked a minute, but when I dug in, it was surprisingly good. Loved it.
All right, all right, maybe we'll give this is a try - even though traditionally, non-chocolate ice cream doesn't exist to us.
