ICE CREAM, ITALIAN STYLE, IN GERMANY
All of this visiting my German ancestral villages has made my husband and I very hungry, especially since we skipped lunch on the ship in order to arrive at the car rental agency on time. So, while visiting the German town of Wirges, we stopped for a snack at Dolce Vita. It is an Italian ice cream shop that has 5 locations in Germany -- Wirges, Montabaur, Hohr Grenzhausen and two in Altenkircher.
The menu had several pages. It reminded me of the multi-page menu at Cheesecake Factory. How many ways can you serve ice cream? There was a two page spread of the menu that featured ice cream dishes in the shape of pasta. Does this count as a meal?
After perusing the menu, I selected a mint sundae since I absolutely love mint, especially with chocolate. My mint sundae not only was covered in a green mint sauce but also contained some mint chocolate cookies and mint chocolate candy straws. There is no such thing as too much mint. It was delicious!
