Santa Stop Here: Carbs to fuel your Christmas

Santa Stop Here: Carbs to fuel your Christmas

December is a time for too many cocktails and a carb overload. It’s service as usual at The Laundrette though, all be it with a little twist. With a Christmas menu of dreams, you’ll certainly want to head along for your helping to one of the three locations this festive period in Newcastle, Manchester and the flagship location Chorlton.

I visited The Laundrette when it opened in October and have consequently been back a few times since this girl loves her carbs! You can check my full round-up here.

With a Christmas menu designed for ease, you can enjoy a three-course dinner meal for £28. A two-course lunch will cost you £23 and a three-course lunch menu is priced at £25.

For starters select from the following;

Wild boar meatballs in spiced tomato sauce topped with Grada pandora and fried sage

Potted Bloody Mary prawn cocktail with pickled cucumber and crostini

Other Newcastle restaurants that you might also enjoy;

Smashburger arrives in Newcastle and is an immediate smash hit

Dough balls served with a dipping smoked truffle cheese fondue

Buffalo mozzarella Caprese salad with a pickled walnut vinaigrette

Chicken liver pate, cranberry marmalade and crostini

Top choices: I’ve previously enjoyed the meatballs and this time they were just as delicious. They are really rich, however, so advisable if sharing to opt for this ‘Small load’.

The dough balls are served piping hot and the fondue is the current talk of Newcastle, so it’s not to be missed – I’d love the recipe for the fondue as it’s seriously so good! So, so good!

Pizzas are The Laundrette’s holy grail, you can choose from the following;

Polenta & paprika chicken, tomato salsa base, mozzarella, red bell peppers, guacamole, sour cream topped with fried tortilla

Pulled pork, Ventricina salami, pepperoni, caramelised onion, mozzarella with pork crackling on a BBQ base

Whole sardines, mozzarella, tomato base, pinhead capers topped with spinach and artichoke tartare

My choice: The polenta & paprika chicken is absolutely delicious. If you like Mexican cuisine this one is for you. The guacamole is absolutely delicious and makes for a great feast.

Why not order one of each between your party and share?

For the Full Loads (mains) you can select from the following;

#1 Laundrette burger 8 oz beef burger, served with cheese, pancetta, lettuce, tomato, gherkin mayo & fries

Smoked cheese oven baked served on a toasted brioche bun topped with apple slaw, chilli jam & fries

Prosciutto wrapped cod Tuscan bean broth, Grana Padano and polenta chips

Horseradish and garlic marinated flattened 6 oz rump steak fries, watercress and Grana Padano

Tempura battered chicken burger chargrilled pineapple, red bell pepper, pak choi, sweet & sour jam and fries

Roasted butternut squash steak, goat’s cheese gremolata pomegranate, pumpkin seeds and watercress

Full load selection: if you’re a fan of a burger, The Laundrette are experts when it comes to rustling up the perfect burger. With prime cuts of meat, the #1 is the number one choice this festive season

Delicates, also known as the desserts (if you have room!)

Salted tequila lime cheesecake with dark chocolate whipped ganache

Burnt caramel apple and panko crumble with vanilla ice cream

Cinnamon bombilini doughnut balls, chocolate fondue, whiskey cream

Laundrette cheese board water biscuits, black honey, walnuts

Top choices: The doughnut balls are literally to die for. They’re served warm and coated in sugar for that true carb overload. The chocolate fondue really finishes these off and they’re perfect for sharing.

As a savoury fiend and not a great lover of desserts I know a good cheese board when I see one. The Laundrette don’t disappoint with theirs. A selection of three kinds of cheese, a blue, soft goats and an orange cheese is served with a generous accompaniment of honey, walnuts, celery, apple and biscuits. I highly recommend pairing your blue cheese with honey and walnuts for that decadent taste.

Now we’ve covered the carbs, for the holidays The Laundrette is adding a Christmas twist to their cocktail menus – highly recommend the Christmas MILF. Especially if you’re a fan of a fruity cocktail.
