online list of amazing milkshakes. They looked so beautiful and were available on our side of town.
Soon our milkshakes arrived. I am not usually a milkshake fan but when it comes topped with a brownie I can be swayed. Mine was the Chocolate and Nutella Fudge Milkshake. It was topped with a gluten free brownie, freeze dried fruit and what I thought was cream (though when I looked up an online menu it says white chocolate mousse and now I am unsure and cursing that I did not take a photo of the menu). The brownie was very impressively fudgy. Sylvia and I loved the nutella around the edge of the jar and we both loved the chocolatey creamy milkshake.
The other milkshake was the Salted Caramel with nutella, sticky date and rice pudding, peanut brittle and butterscotch cream. It sounded just as over the top as the ones we had but Sylvia cannot eat peanuts so we passed over it.
The red velvet pancakes were served with fresh berries, vanilla marscapone, chocolate soil, freeze dried mandarin, citrus powder and burnt meringues. Yep, they don't do simple at Naughty Boy. I didn't notice the chocolate soil but I did appreciated the flowers ("what are these?" asked Sylvia in surprise) and the drizzle of maple syrup.
This dish was heavenly. Everything worked together really well. Unless you are a small child who is not keen on creamy toppings or mixing lots of unsual textures. Yet even Sylvia conceded that the pancakes were very good.
