Part dessert, part chem-lab demonstration, The County General’s Kitchen Sink sundae captures the drama of retro flambéed bananas and cherries jubilee using modern molecular techniques. Salted-caramel cream gets frozen table-side with a hit of liquid nitrogen, unleashing a vaporous cloud. The instant ice cream is then folded with texture-boosting additions like chocolate-almond bark, meringue shards and rum-spiked raisins, and topped with caramel sauce. The result is gooey, crunchy and delicious, like Rocky Road on steroids. The sweet bonus: it comes with an extra half-pint to take home. $25. 936 Queen St. W., 416-531-4447.
