According tohttp://www.letrianoncakes.com/cakes.html : Le Trianon is a Premium 3-layer chocolate indulgence. Trianon’s top layer is a smooth and pure imported dark chocolate, dusted with dark cocoa powder. Sandwiched in the middle is a layer of dark chocolate mixed with crunchy chocolate praline, with its base made of biscuits.

I took a birthday trip to birthday November of 2016 and one of the food I tried whilst being there was Kürtőskalács .

According to Wikipedia it is is a spit cake specific to Hungarian-speaking regions in Romania, more predominantly the Székely land made from sweet, yeast dough . The way in which is made is through the raised dough which get  strip is spun and then wrapped around a truncated cone shaped baked into split I guess and oh rolled in granulated sugar .

Once that is done it is  roasted over charcoal whilst it getting basted with melted butter, until its surface cooks to a golden-brown color. During the baking process the sugar stuck on the kürtőskalács is caramelized in a way and forms a shiny , crispy crust . And the surface of the cake can then be topped with additional ingredients such as ground powdered cinnamon or walnut.

Me and my food buddy were recommended to try a deli cafe in Newcastle called Mascalzone out and it was money well spent.

For our starter my friend and decided to have a INSALATE Salads as starter . We were initially going to other a Bosa salad and a Clementina salad which had Tuna, green beans, new potatoes, boiled eggs, mixed salad & cherry tomatoes

And the waitress told us that the salad is quite big portion so we shared the  Bosa salad instead . The salad consisted of : Salmon, prawns, avocado & mixed salad.  The portion was so big that we both couldn’t finish it .

The Bosa salad cost £6.95

For my main I had a Pollo Gutturu.   Chicken breast with fresh mushrooms in a rich mustard & cream sauce. For someone who isn’t really a fan of mustard , the sauce was so dann divine I would definitely come back to have that again .

It only cost £8.25

I cannot recall what my friend had nor do I have a picture of her meal . For my dessert I had a cheesecake and she had peach Ice tea .

The service was amazing the staff where very friendly and the people dinning there also were lovely .If ever in Newcastle please visit Mascalzone its located on 18-, 20 Goldspink Ln, Newcastle upon Tyne NE2 1PP
