Meet Phil – The Sweet Little Alien at Greene Street Kitchen

 Say Hello to Phil and Prepare Yourself for an Out of This World Dessert Experience

When you bite into a decadent dessert, do you want it to taste like it’s from out of this world? Are you looking for a sweet tooth satisfying experience of intergalactic proportions? Greene Street Kitchen has a friend we’d like to introduce you to. His name is Phil, and his arrival from outer space has more than a few of our guests talking and making special trips in just to see him.

Who is Phil anyway?

Phil is the affectionate nickname of the adorable alien looking creature that has become the showstopping centerpiece of what is arguably the most sought after of Las Vegas Desserts – Greene Street Kitchen’s Space Invader.

The Space Invader is the galactic mastermind creation of GSK’s Pastry Chef, Krista Seal. Once The Space Invader landed, it didn’t take long for it to become a fan favorite – attracting the attention of tourists and celebrities in the area. After all, it isn’t every day that you get to find yourself face to face with an endearing alien from another world.

Phil – The Space Invader that’s So Sweet on the Inside

The Space Invader, also known as Phil, is a new spin on Baked Alaska that you won’t find anywhere else in the Universe. On the surface Phil is sweet faced and unassuming enough but dig a little deeper in the heart of this alien, and you’ll discover just how unforgettable he really is.

The Space Invader is Baked Alaska made with perfect angel food cake, strawberry sorbet, and a cereal milk ice cream that has been infused with Fruity Pebbles space dust. Then, Phil gets dressed in galactic green Italian Merengue before he’s warmed up with a little torch and primped with a burst of blue spray to complete his stargazer appearance.

The final touch? Phil sits in a delicious pool of crème anglaise that has been drizzled with strawberry coulis and sprinkled with more Fruity Pebble dust. But we can’t forget about the final addition that really adds personality to Phil – two googly eyes that make Phil so adorable that the idea of digging your fork into him almost a little too much to bear.

Prepare to Meet Phil Face to Face

When Phil makes his way to your table, he doesn’t do it subtly. He arrives on a spaceship inspired platform, complete with rolling steam and spaceship style presentation. As your server removes the lid from Phil’s ship, you and your guests become engulfed in clouds of steam created by dry ice. Meeting Phil face to face is a true sensory experience that you’ll never forget.

The Space Invader, featuring Phil, has become a bit of cult icon in terms of best desserts in Las Vegas. He has garnered the attention of celebrities, famous foodies, and has even made it onto the list of foodgod recommendations.
