117. Sanam Sweethouse
Gasps of wonderment were heard around Mugspotters HQ when this quite exquisite Charity Shop salvaged Deco was unveiled. Without being ‘Mug-ist’, it’s a very “feminine” specimen and drew such deep and insightful comments as “This is my favorite Mug cos it’s got hearts on it…” Indeed.
However even the most hard-hearted Spotter would fail to be wooed by its flirtatious curves, lines and bold use of the heart motif. I am more enthralled by the cool logo as it beckons you with it’s “Come and eat me” Eastern undertones.
(Hmmm..please wait as I mop the saliva out of my keyboard..)
Sanam Sweethouse have a couple of outlets in both Stockport & Rusholme and its website boasts of a forthcoming shop in Cheetham Hill. The aforementioned site also explains:
Haji Abdul Ghafoor Akhtar started his scrumptious journey of flavors in 1963 by founding one of the first restaurants that beautifully blended the authentic and colorful taste of the East with the West. Initially called Multan and then Shezan to reflect his Eastern heritage, Haji Sahib settled with the name ‘Sanam’ – literally meaning ‘the loved one’, a name which reflected his true passion and love for what he did best.
His legacy is now being carried forward for more than 50 years, Sanam Sweethouse and Restaurant today is a symbol of authentic essence of Eastern taste and a benchmark of excellence for quality. Manchester’s finest, we are dedicated and committed to creating the very best in Pakistani cuisine and traditional sweets. Haji Sahib is proud.
Cheetham Hill would probably be closest to Mugspotters HQ and so will look to try them out once it’s unleashed on the public. Those who can’t wait are best advised to get down to Stockport or Rusholme to slate your sweet lust pronto.
