Here at Big Deal Towers, our New Year resolutions are beginning to feel like a relationship that’s run its course.
Sorry Self Denial, it’s not you. It’s us. We just need some time on our own. Preferably with some cake and perhaps a cocktail.
If you are suffering from similar heartbreak then get over it by running into the arms of today’s tasty Big Deal with Cup Tea Lounge on Renfield Street.
A finalist in the Best Newcomer category at the recent Glasgow Restaurant Awards, Cup Tea Lounge is a very stylish, city centre venue with an opulent, Victorian interior.
The food is just as attention-grabbing.
Available Thursday-Saturdays from 17:00, this offer is for two people to enjoy a rather decadent evening at Cup Tea Lounge. Start your treat with a savoury platter to share; choose between a cheese, charcuterie or veggie platter. For a really gooey, gourmet experience, go for the baked Camembert which is served with Melba toast.
Cup Tea Lounge does a lot of things very well but their desserts are spectacular with over a dozen on the menu.
We have our eye on sticky toffee pudding but could also be tempted by crème brûlée.
Champagne or cocktails?
The offer includes a couple of drinks to accompany the food. You could have a glass of chilled Champagne or investigate the Cup Tea Lounge cocktail list.
The Strawberry Shortcake Martini sounds delightful…amaretto, muddled fresh strawberries and Mozart white chocolate liqueur vigorously shaken with cream, garnished with fresh strawberries and finely crumbed toasted biscuits.
Alternatively, we might be a little more modest and sip on a Cosmopolitan.
Although not valid for Valentine’s Day itself, this offer would make a thoughtful Valentine’s gift. Of course, it could also be used to treat a friend or family member.
According to the comments left by 5pm users, Cup Tea Lounge is a hit with a wide range of people. This is what one visitor had to say:
‘Classy place, excellent food and service, gorgeous interior. Visited with my Mum on a pre-theatre deal with 5pm.co.uk. This included an amazing afternoon tea, glass of fizz and even sweeties to take to the show! The waiting staff couldn’t have been more friendly or attentive – and the interior of the lounge is simply stunning. We asked for one of our sandwich fillings to be changed, and this was no problem at all. Food was plentiful and tasty – the freshly baked hot scones were a great touch. We couldn’t eat all the food, so our lovely waiter boxed up our cakes for us to take away…much appreciated! We will certainly be back.’ Rating 5/5
