An affogato is a popular Italian dessert that consists of vanilla ice cream (or gelato) with a shot of hot espresso poured on top. This is what happens when a waiter has never heard of an affogato, and the diner tries to explain what it is. From Reddit user pterofactyl:
friend ordered an affogato. waiter didn't know what it was. she said you put a scoop of icecream on top then pour espresso over it...this is what she got.
Looks like a new dessert -- an avogato!
