In some circles, ‘Ladies who lunch’ is a phrase that sometimes has negative nuances as it could suggest frivolity.
Well, this is where the fight back starts. There is nothing wrong with lunching ladies and, while we’re at it, what’s so bad about a little frivolity now and then?
Team Big Deal is reclaiming the phrase ‘ladies who lunch’ and we’re kick-starting the campaign with this stunning deal on lunch and a Herbalife facial at the plush Dragon-i restaurant on Hope Street.
2 course lunch
This tasty Big Deal is for a two course, weekend lunch at the well reviewed Dragon-i restaurant opposite the Theatre Royal.
Included in the price are a glass of house wine and a skin care lesson with full facial using fantastic Herbalife products.
Designed to nourish your skin and reduce the signs of ageing, the Herbalife facial will leave you looking as good as you feel.
Very well reviewed by 5pm users, the innovative menu at Dragon-i combine contemporary Chinese cooking with influences from Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and further afield.
We like the look of starters such as the pork ribs in a tangy, fruit sauce; the West coast mussels in a black bean and seafood sauce or the crispy pancakes filled with sautéed veg and served with a plum sauce.
The main courses are also very attention-grabbing. Fancy the stir-fried Scotch beef. Or how about the grilled chicken breast with sautéed veg and a spicy Szechuan sauce?
If you opt to have a main course and dessert then you can choose between dishes like the lime and lemongrass cheesecake or the lychee crème brûlée.
Lunch with friends
This fab Big Deal would be perfect for lunch with friends; a gift or as a refreshing break during a shopping expedition.
