Againn: Sticky Toffee Pudding


Againn (pronounced "ah-gwenn") is a British pub, but with more gourmet elements and a promoted Scotch selection.  This unique concept has people talking, but probably not about its desserts.

The highlight of Againn's sticky toffee pudding is the sauce.  It has a deep toffee flavor and nice thickness.  The low-light is the dish's very small size.

The pudding itself has a nice density, and is warm, soft, and a bit gooey where it mixes with the sauce.  Unfortunately, its flavor is disappointingly flat.  The stout ice cream is unique and tastes good.  However, it should be smoother when paired with a pudding.  It also wasn't the right compliment to the toffee flavor.

This dish falls short of the frozen sticky toffee pudding you can find at Dean & Deluca.  It has some good elements, but it's still a skip.
