10/5 – Tuesday Goodie Bag

This week’s Tuesday Goodie Bag features

The Gourmet Boys website

👉 Jumon

👉 Sugar Rays

And our product of the week: 

👉 Mon Petit Chou


This Asian fusion vegetarian restaurant has excellent service, colourful eye-popping decor, & sensational meat-free food. 

We began with the Kkanpoong Tofu: gochujang glazed bean curd in a poppadom, Cigar Rolls stuffed with ricotta, kimchi & aubergine, Celeriac & Potato salad, & Konchijeu: deliciously oozy mozzarella & charred sweetcorn. We then had Sayur Lodeh: a jackfruit curry with a sweet hit of pickled lychee, a tamarind-rich Pad Thai, &  Mandu Tacos topped with aubergine, avocado, Asian greens, mushrooms, salsa verde & smoked cheese. What an absolute pleasure to enjoy healthy food as flavoursome as this. Jumon Dreams indeed!

Sugar Rays

A family friendly restaurant in Dundonald, Sugar Rays offers a variety of delicious food options; from homemade burgers, slow cooked ribs, freshly made pizzas, beef brisket to chicken stacks, & great veggie dishes. The “No Meat Here” veggie burgers are made in house, & we opted for the Hot Top- a spicy bean burger smothered in smoked cheese, jalapeños, tobacco onions & sriracha mayo. Sugar Rays’ “Homeslice” pizzas have a matured sourdough base & we couldn’t resist the “Veggie Queen” with sundried tomato, mozzarella, roast pepper, mushroom, red onion, rocket, pesto, & extra olives, accompanied by a house salad. And we had just enough room for the warm Caramel Crunch Pie with vanilla ice cream, fudge pieces & toffee sauce. Almost treacly, with an oaty biscuit base, this was one of the yummiest desserts we’ve tasted in ages! 

Mon Petit Chou

Based in Belfast, French pastry chef Marion works as a Chef and Pastry Chef Instructor in Waterman House Cookery School. She is the founder of Mon Petit Chou: a baking blog where she shares tips for her delicious sweet treats & takes orders for her incredible macarons. We ordered a box of 12 handmade authentic French macarons in three exclusive flavours: Tonka Bean Chocolate, Raspberry and Rose, and Lemon and Elderflower. J’en ai l’eau à la bouche!!
