Ice Cream Sundae on a Hot Dog Bun

Lee at Serious Eats spotted three different vendors in Thailand who sold ice cream sundaes served in hot dog buns.
The dessert was delicious: the bananas were chewy, the pineapple sweet and tart, the coconut ice cream rich, cold, and creamy, and the peanuts added the perfect amount of crunch and toasted flavor and the drop of milk brought all of the flavors together.

The bun? It got soggy pretty quickly (as I suspected) and if I ate it any slower, we would have had a real mess on our hands.

But it was a nice take on a portable sundae, minus the paper or plastic cup to throw out at the end! I kept thinking that it would have been interesting with a toasted bun.

If you toast that bread long enough, pretty soon you'll invent the ice cream cone. Link -via J-Walk Blog

Yeah when I was in Sicily there "Brioche Con Gelato" was almost a daily treat for us! It was amazing, a bready bun, not your usual brioche, and they slit it in two and filled with 2-3 scoops of amazing sicilian gelato. The brioche itself doesn't even get soggy, something about the kind of bread. Perfect for those long hot days and way better than a siesta! I wish I could get them here!

We do this in the Philippines too! Usually ice cream vendors who wander around streets carry hamburger buns and fill it with generous scoops of ice cream and top it with chocolate syrup. yum!
