Second visit to &Made wasn't as mindblowing as the first, maybe due to what we ordered.
The lamb burger with coriander was still arguably a good, juicy burger but it's hard to top the 3 Little Pigs, in my opinion. When we mentioned this to the waitress, she said her favourite was a toss-up between the 3 Little Pigs and the original B Burger. Guess one more visit is on the cards...
The Farmer Toastoo, with ham, raclette cheese and caramelised onions, also fell short of the Viking one. The ham and cheese were both so delicate compared to the onion that they were all but lost in each mouthful.
The Lollipop waffle was an interesting idea - a lolly-shaped waffle served with 3 shots glasses containing dark and white chocolate dips, and caramel. It was an interesting idea, but the shot glasses were a bit too small to really facilitate proper dipping. And the dips weren't really potent enough.
Finally, the Salt Caramel Hot Lava Cake, served with a caramel ice cream coated in crumbled filo pastry. The cake actually arrives intact, and they slice into it upon arrival so you get the full impact of the oozing caramel. This was so sinful, but oh so good, with a proper salty caramel.
This is apparently the Deliciae Group's new signature dessert, and is available at all the group's outlets, including L'Entrecote and Sabio.
This visit was far from disappointing, but it really shows how important menu choice is in determining your experience of a restaurant.
Okay, some burgers here aren’t as good, but there is so much here to like. Definitely on the shortlist for best finds of 2012…
