Typical Friday…

21 Jan 2011

It’s Friday!  And I’m taking a little break from my New Zealand posts to tell you about it.  I very rarely need an excuse to make a pig of myself and so on Fridays it’s almost a prerequisite.

Breakfast: The Breadman and Flat White

Ah… one of my favourite indulgent breakfasts to have at my desk consists of a flat white from Flat White and a bacon and egg mayonnaise bagel from The Breadman stall in Berwick Street Market, Soho.

The bagels are proper and come fresh from Brick Lane.  The filling consists of lovely thick slices of bacon (usually still crispy from the frying pan), and offset by creamy scrambled egg mayonnaise. It’s such a naughty but nice way to start the day!

Lunch: Bodeans

This is actually a much smaller meal than I would normally order at Bodeans but I have dinner plans at The Warrington tonight so this was my attempt at taking it easy.  The drawback with ordering ribs is that being so rich and fatty it was still too filling.  Sheesh… what kind of person chooses ribs when looking for a light meal?!  Seriously, I am a prime example of someone with a severe case of “eyes bigger than stomach”.

Anyway… still feeling full, but off to The Warrington I go!  Wish me luck.

My Year of Food 2010: Part 1

5 Jan 2011

One thing that has irked me about getting this blog started so late is all the amazing food I’ve enjoyed in 2010 that I’ve missed out on writing about.  But after seeing a series of Favourite Bites of 2010 posts on the blog Eat Like A Girl, I thought “what a good idea!” and was very much inspired to do something similar.

In this post I bring to you a few of my favourite foodie moments from the last year:

Launceston Place (8th May 2010)

Fine dining is not a luxury I can often afford to indulge in but in May I was fortunate enough to be given £100 to dine at any restaurant of my choosing.  After asking the Twittersphere for suggestions, MiMi from Meemalee’s Kitchen recommended Launceston Place and kindly informed head chef, Tristan Welch that she was sending me over.  I took my pal Eatatarian along and we had a blast living it up and enjoying the wonderful food and service!
