Sugar Hit 2011 Take 2 - Glass Brasserie, Spiedo & Tomislav

There's still a week left of October, so I'm trying to fit as many Sugar Hits in as humanly possible by the month's end.

So far...

Milk chocolate bavarois, tonka bean creme brulee, caramel sorbet and salted beans at Glass at the Hilton

Although this was quite small, the flavours were quite nice.

Last Thursday a last minute decision was made to do the Spiedo Sugar Hit, but first we lined our stomaches with some savoury food at Stuzzibar, the outside dining area at Spiedo. 

The menu had many tempting options, but we had to try and keep it light, keeping in mind the fact that we had to fit in Sugar Hits. 

Homemade gnocchi  with gorgonzola and green peas - this was very much perfect comfort food with the pillowy soft bites of gnocchi and creamy and extremely filling sauce, probably not the best dish to order if you're trying to fit in multiple desserts afterward! (but it was good!)

Salad of baby beetroot, pumpkin, goat's gorgonzola, mint and walnuts - this salad was lovely, with the creamy gorgonzola a highlight.  I did think it had a little bit too much dressing though

Salumi selection with marinated vegetables, bread and crackers

Pirlo - Spiedo's signature cocktail in a jug - blend of Prosecco and Aperol with sparkling mineral water and finished with fresh orange

Because Thursday is the new Friday...

Spiedo's Sugar Hit offering - housemade buttermilk pannacotta, strawberry granita and basil

Brown Brothers dessert wine - Orange Muscat and Flora

And then off to Tomislav we went: 

The accompanying dessert wine

Unfortunately we got there 15 minutes before the kitchen closed, so they sold out of the other sugar hit offering for the night. But not to worry, the apple crumble was amazing!

Tomislav's very pretty version of the apple crumble, the pop rocks were a nice surprise! The staff were super nice too, we had a peek at the menu and I definitely want to come back and have dinner and try the other sugar hit options too.
