This week we visited Frankie & Benny's for my brother's birthday. They've a lovely Waldorfesque salad on the Specials Menu now, watch out for that, but the thing that really caught our eye was the dessert available as part of the kids' menu.
For £1.95 you get two scoops of ice cream, bottles of sweets, mallows and a jug of chocolate sauce. Oh! and popping candy!
It was pretty tricky to get a photo as Smix wanted to jump straight in.
It reminded me of the dessert I always wanted to get in Nino's in Portstewart as a child. I think it was called the Michaelangelo and it was served on a painter's palette. My parents quite rightly realised I'd never be able to finish something that size, but I think they did give into my pleading on at least one occasion.
Anyway, the Ice Cream Candy Shop is so extensive that they provide you a pick and mix bag to take your sweeties home. Smix is still working his way through it! Maybe next time we go I'll work up the courage to ask for one for myself too.
