When it comes to dessert, no team are better equipped than Grand Central to give you the one and only guide you need for satisfying your sweet tooth needs. Between chocolate brownies, the finest gelato, and even Dorayaki pancakes, we’ve got dessert on our minds all day long (this is not an overstatement). You could even say that we’re somewhat of experts when it comes to all things dessert ― at least in terms of the taste test! And so we thought it only fair to share our dessert knowledge with you.
For instance, where better to get classic gelato than Carluccio’s? All with intense flavours and served with crispy wafer, choose from coffee and hazelnut, bitter chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and even cherry. Or for something a little lighter, try the ‘meringa al frutto della passione’ – meringue with a passion fruit cream, fresh raspberries and a raspberry coulis.
While we’re on the subject of Italian, take a look at what’s on offer at Caffe Concerto. Specializing in patisserie and gateaux rivalled by no other, Caffe Concerto is your go-to location for the most delicious indulgences that’ll have you wishing you had room for seconds. Our favourites include the colourful macaroons, a stunning slice of Cortina gateaux and the mixed berry tart!
For a bit of Spanish flair, head over to Tapas Revolution and allow them to turn up the heat a little on these cold autumn evenings! Tuck in to some Torrija – caramelised brioche bun soaked in warm custard or get dessert to go with some churros served with divine hot dipping chocolate! Or if a range of tapas has filled you up to the brim, discover some of their ‘Jerez y Digestivos’ – sherry and after dinner drinks. Liqueur, brandy and wine, you name it, they have it.
Those looking to exit their comfort zone and expand their dessert palate should find themselves at Yakinori for a lesson in traditional Japanese cuisine. Choose from strawberry or mango and chilli mochi – little balls of ice cream wrapped in a layer of sticky rice – or get the full Japanese experience with some Dorayaki – Japanese pancakes served with red bean!
