Amadora grew to fame thanks to its range of truly indulgent ice creams and sweet delicacies. Each item on the menu uses the freshest and finest ingredients and is prepped in-house, right from pasteurising the milk to offering a ready-to-eat dessert. But if you're new to the place or are having a hard time choosing, here's a list of the top five sweet preparations that we think everyone must try.
Underbaked Chocolate Cake + Scoop Of Salted Butter Caramel Ice Cream. This one's legendary. There’s something about the gooey cake that just feels right and the salted butter caramel ice cream is the perfect addition to the sweet chocolatey cake. Their staff will suggest the five bean vanilla over the salted butter caramel (as that’s pretty popular too), but trust us and pick the latter.
Amadora Hot Fudge Sundae. A combination of their hot fudge with their signature five bean vanilla ice cream, Xocolat ice cream, toffee and caramel swirl. If that isn't a mouthful, you can get it in a freshly made waffle cone. The flavour explosion in your mouth is worth the upmarket asking price, as quantity-wise it’s pretty big!
The Amadora ice cream sandwich - Here, you get to pick a giant scoop of any of their ice creams and sandwich it between two, thick warm Callebaut chocolate chip cookies with a generous dose of chocolate fudge on top. Food coma is a term that is usually used to describe people after they eat one of these.
Hail Mary. If the previous three weren’t obscenely decadent enough for you, then Amadora's Hail Mary will sate your saccharine desires. A combination of the salted butter caramel ice cream, Xocolat ice cream, five bean vanilla ice cream on a bed of underbaked chocolate cake with a fudge ripple and butter caramel swirl on top - It’s a heartstopper both literally and figuratively.
Mud Pie. The last on the list is for all the hometown love. Their mud pie contains their special Mami’s filter coffee ice cream which is about as close to filter coffee as an ice cream you can get. This paired with the Callebaut chocolate bits covered in chocolate fudge with a chocolate cake base - it's the perfect mix of coffee and chocolate. But hey! You're your own boss. If you're in the mood to explore beyond this, check out their sorbets, ice cream cakes and popsicles. Either way, you're in for a treat.
