Last night went a little different than I expected, after a stop at Greek Fest for baclava (sorry it’s over now, if you didn’t go) I managed to end up at The Rumpus Room*.
As part of that adventure a deep fried Mars bar was ordered… it however was forgotten until we were ready to leave at which point it appeared. Just to be clear, I didn’t order it, but I did try it. I’m going to say that I didn’t like this particular one, but I could imagine possibly enjoying a different implementation.
For me the problem was the batter, it was overpowering, but it wasn’t overpowering because it was a regular fish and chips beer batter or something. Instead it appeared to be a specially crafted dessert batter, which in other circumstances might have been delicious. In this case however, I felt that the cinnamon in the batter overpowered the taste of the Mars bar, which in my mind at least defeats the purpose of the dish.
Regardless it was an interesting night. So have you tried the deep fried Mars bar before? Did you like it? Where’s the best place in Vancouver to have one?
