Also known as pan tres leches ("three milks bread"), this limited edition dessert features lemon scented butter cake with a mixture of sugar, milk, sweetened condensed milk, half and half, and Rival Brothers espress beans. The cake is topped with with whip cream and fresh fruit - with a house berry puree.
Tres Leche Cake with Rival Bros started a few years ago when the food-trucking duo were making desserts for Street Food Philly Food Truck- but they ran out of milk for the final batch. "Luckily, Johnny Mack from Rival Brothers coffee was parked right in front of us and put together a milk coffee concoction for the cake.They kept us well caffeinated and we kept them well fed," added Sultan. Tres Leche Cake is part of Revolution Taco's special "duos" for Valentine's Day that also includes a Valentine's "Surf and Turf" taco featuring fried foie gras, lobster salad, apple slaw and tobiko.
