An Asian-Inspired Dog Friendly Ice Cream Parlour Has Popped Up In The NQ

Your new summer haunt is here.

Here in Manchester, we’ve most definitely been spoiled with sugary sweets at every turn – from NYC-inspired cookies and doughnuts to frozen cheesecake on a stick. But one thing we definitely haven’t had enough of (until now)? Good, classic ice cream.

Planning its grand opening for this Saturday, May 8th, Lazy Sundae is bringing the flavours of the tropics to Manchester, with a fantastic, ever-rotating menu of artisan ice cream. Inspired by the owners’ favourite destinations, guests can expect “to be transported somewhere warm” with the shop’s array of Asian-inspired desserts.

Listing Bali, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Taiwan and Hong Kong as sources of inspiration for their product range, guests can enjoy ice cream flavours such as Thai Tea and Matcha, as well as bubble tea and souffle pancakes – with tasty additions such as Vietnamese ice cream floats and pineapple bao ice cream sandwiches making Lazy Sundae a ‘first of its kind’ in the UK, thanks to its accessible Asian desserts.

Owners Kwoklun Dang and Jacqueline Dang (also behind the Arndale’s Bobo Tea) have also revealed that the parlour will be completely dog friendly, with dog-friendly sugar and lactose-free ice creams also available, allowing your pooch to cool down in style during the coming summer months.

Lazy Sundae aims to champion unique flavours, rather than the mainstream norm, bringing to life Far East flavours such as Milo (malted chocolate), Taro and Vietnamese coffee – bridging the gap between the owners’ heritage, and the mainstream market.

The first 50 customers this Saturday will receive a goodie bag during their visit, which is complete with tropical-themed cutlery, a premium bubble tea with a panna cotta pudding base, and a Lazy Sundae tote bag.

Opening at 12 noon til 8pm, you can find Lazy Sundae at 108 Tib St, M4 1LR.
