Channel your inner pyromania with these dishes and drinks that are actually set on fire in front of your eyes. Whether it’s a flaming alcoholic shot or a decadent dessert flambéed to fiery perfection, you’re sure to be deliciously entertained.
Ouzo Greek Taverna or Broken Plate
Imported Greek cheese flamed with brandy and doused with lemon while you watch at your table. This dish is crisp around the edges and soft in the centre. Served with warm pita bread.
Pitted cherries are sugared and doused with brandy, then flambéed to perfection at your tableside and served over vanilla ice cream.
A shot of Sambuca—an Italian, aniseed-flavoured liquor—is poured and lit with a match or small torch. A blue flame burns over the Sambuca, which you then put your hand over to extinguish before drinking.
Japanese Village Steak House
Directly translated from Japanese to mean “iron table,” this cooking method allows you to choose your own meat and vegetables, which are then grilled with dramatic flames while you watch.
Decadent desserts flambéed at your table include cherries jubilee, banana crepes, or the unique peppered strawberries.—Ally McConnell
