DESSERT LOUNGE’S NEW ADDITIONS TO THE MENU
Peterborough’s original dessert lounge – TAMU –has bowed to customer demand and introduced some savoury offerings.
Savoury crepes and waffles were a popular choice when Salim Rehmatullah’s first venture opened in Broadway three years ago.
But, when the new, bigger lounge opened in Cowgate in spring last year, it was sweets only... until now.
A successful launch event last Tuesday was followed by the menu going public on Wednesday, and Salim is pleased with the response.
“It is all down to customer demand,” he said. “People have been writing to us since the Cowgate lounge opened asking if we could bring back the savoury crepes and waffles.
“We have reacted by bringing back, for now, the four most popular and on Wenesday they went down very well and we are the only ones doing it in Peterborough.”
Currently there is a choice of creamy spinach chicken, chicken tikka, beef Philadelphia and mixed bean.
“We decided against having a full savoury menu all year round and will change things regularly throughout the year.
