I don’t know about you, but I have a really bad sweet tooth. So much so that I struggle to sleep at night without something sugary lingering on my lips. True Story.
Luckily for me and all the other sugar addicts out there, I am spoilt for choice when it comes to the A la carte menu at The Lowry Hotel- which is full to the brim of British classics with a typical sophisticated twist from head chef Andrew Green.
Enjoy dishes which just taste of home like the caramelised apple crumble and vanilla ice cream or the steamed treacle sponge which is light as a feather and served alongside custard which is an equally ethereal experiance.
Chocoholics can enjoy the milk chocolate tart with crème fraiche which brings a welcome tang to cut through the sweetness of the chocolate. The Rhubarb trifle just reminds me of boxing day at my mums but if it was in the summer with flavours of lemon and tart rhubarb.
Equally as refreshing as the former is the lemon grass and lime crème brulee – which is a typical dish of Green which takes something we know and love and turns it completely on its head to create something utterly unique. This is served alongside a strawberry consommé and sorbet- I couldn’t get enough.
Last, but certainly not least, is the epic Armamena cherry baked Alaska for two. I think the only word to describe it would be awesome- home-made Madeira cake topped with cherry ice cream and encased in a coat of charred meringue. It is a show stopper to say the very least.
