If you’re looking to appease your inner-child, you can treat yourself to some heavenly confectionery at After Hours Desserts, a temporary dessert bar in Redchurch Street, over the next two months.
Remember the soul crushing disappointment of adulthood? Discovering that having sweets for dinner, like a spag-bol made of strawberry laces, wasn’t the done thing*? Well, screw that, because you can have a whole three course dinner of dessert. And who’s going to stop you? Exactly. The pop-up returns fortnightly on Friday and Saturday evenings at Allpress Espresso in Shoreditch.
This is no vanilla affair. Presiding chef Farokh Talati, formerly of The Fat Duck & Mugaritz, whips up dishes such as ”Dark chocolate & whiskey dome, cherries, oak & salted vanilla toffee”.
And for the (ir)responsible grown up in you, there will be cocktails. Of course.
After Hours are now taking Bookings for 10-11 and 24-25 May at Allpress Espresso, between 7.30pm and 10.30pm each night. £20 for three courses of dessert (choose your favourites from the menu), Allpress coffee & petit fours. To make a reservation please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07835107570.
