Yes. They still sell these in packs of 4 at the MARA. Funny enough...we had tried them years ago because we heard people rave about them. We werenít impressed at all. My father in law tried them at BOMA and thought they were the best thing ever. He took a few on our way out of the buffet.

I tried them again that night and thought they were good, but nothing to write home about.

We actually flat out dislike them. We LOVE Boma...... do it every trip....... but the desert menu is the "weak link" in their food offerings.

best,

Agreed. The deserts were tasty, but they were nothing compared to the rest of the foods.

Now now don't you go dissing on my zebra domes.
I am not big on sweets in general but thes little bites are tasty.

Of course I really love the oak plank grilled tomatoes... call me simple but I always go back for seconds.

I donít think Iíve ever made it to the desserts. Too much food! Iím going to make it a priority to actually try a zebra dome this time!

They sell them in a 4 pack in the Mara so you can savor without the full on Boma experience.

Sorry. Theyíre good, but nothing amazing for me. My father-in-law agrees with most of you, though.

I agree that desserts at Boma are the weak link. However, by the time I get to them, I really just want a little something sweet to cap off the meal so I don't need a big dessert experience.

Zebra domes are cute. I'm not a huge mocha fan (though I don't dislike it) so I can take them or leave them.
