Sinful shakes and delectable desserts…Preston’s new halal steakhouse has a naughty side
THERE may be no alcohol at Preston’s MUMU steakhouse but this halal hotspot has its own brand of naughtiness: one look at the drool-worthy sweet stuff and you’ll see what we’re talking about.
Of course, it would be a travesty to miss out on a steak while you’re here. Flame-grilled by meat mavericks in MUMU’s dramatic open kitchen, they’re pretty darn special. But we recommend either accompanying with a shake, or following up with a pudding (both if you’re feeling particularly rebellious).
Like everything else, the milkshakes are enormous (no stingy portions here) and are made with real cream for proper indulgence. Choose from chocolate, strawberry, vanilla, banana and salted caramel - all served in a stainless steel tumbler - then prepare for a celestial experience.
Desserts are equally tempting. Think chocolate brownie with toasted mallows, homemade cheesecake with berry compote and waffles dusted with cinnamon.
We’ll let you into a secret: our personal fave was homemade sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream, scattered with crushed walnuts for a satisfying crunch.
Alternatively, plump for the MUMU pancake stack: homemade buttermilk pancakes from a 50-year recipe. These fluffy delights come in plain, chop chip or blueberry - all served warm, with a drizzle of maple syrup.
Miss at your peril…
