After a gruelling 30-something hour journey from Wellington back to London I was in no state to face the supermarket, let alone cook. So we decided to grab some dinner locally in Maida Vale. Being a short walk from my house, Thai Rice is my current “go to” place for a decent Thai takeout but we thought it would be nice to eat in the restaurant for a change.
The atmosphere was warm and inviting with very modern decor. Being quite woozy from my flight, I wasn’t in the best state to make reliable decisions and instead of ordering beer by the pint we opted to have it served in a large ice cooled barrel. It was fun but perhaps a little too fun (and slightly embarrassing) for our little table when I was in such a zonked out mood. It made the experience a little surreal and every time I looked at it I felt quite dazed!
