ON MY PLATE: MADD, London UK
Madd – I recently headed to Madd, a place ‘Madd’ about Mangoes – literally! You need to love Mangoes to check this place out… Once I heard about the place, I was ecstatic – I love fresh Mangoes, dried Mangoes, baked Mangoes, sugared Mangoes, Mango juice, Mango sorbet… you get the point. The dessert cafe is on Rupert street, which is super close to Leicester Square. Once we arrived at the adorable cafe, we were greeted by a fab and super sweet ‘MADD-er’ who explained all the desserts, as well as sharing his recommendations. We ended up going with the Mango cheesecake, Siam (sticky rice and Mangoes dessert – SO good.) and a chocolate and orange tart (they do have a few non-Mango desserts), which is then squirted with our choice of toppings.
We were then shown to our table – you can also request games and cards to play whilst having your dessert, which is adorable… as the place looks like a toy itself.
Me and Tamara were trying to decide on our favorite dessert, and we just couldn’t… I loved them so much that I was already thinking about my next visit. The Siam was a sweet sticky rice with fresh juicy sweet mangoes over, the Mango cheesecake was creamy, yet firm (just the way I like it) and the Orange chocolate tart tasted like an orangette as a tart. YUM. & don’t forget, Mangoes are good for you.
