The Ebelskivers from Shopsins are the stuff of legend. LEGEND. But in my seven plus years of patronizing the restaurant, I had never tried them. Until this weekend...
The thing about going to Shopsins is that everything on the menu is fracking delicious. Never had a bad meal. The servings are also enormous. The glutton in me wants to order everything in sight. But even with my hearty appetite, I can generally only manage to put away a main dish, so sides like hatch fries with cheese (someday you will be mine!) get back burnered unless I can convince my dining companions to share.
This weekend Lawman and I met up with my brother Lil Bobo for brunch. And I decided to just go for the chocolate skivies. DELICIOUS.
Blargh, I want to eat my monitor right now just looking at the photo. The centers were full of melty delicious chocolate with whipped cream on the side for topping. Then the outsides were dusted in some cinnamon sugary goodness. Kind of makes me want to bust out my Ebelskivers pan...or just go back to Shopsin's.
