Celebration Cookie, Millie’s Cookies

Me and my friend from work had a little pact whereby when we made our first ‘placements’ as recently promoted Consultants, then we would treat ourselves to a giant cookie from Millies.  Having seen then in the window of their store of London Bridge many times, this offered an incentive to do well and reap […]

Breakfast, Absolutely Starving

Ooh yes.

Mr Pretzels

Oh man, I can’t resist these tasty things.  Firstly, it’s the smell of them being cooked that wafts about the Westfield Centre and it’s that type of smell that you cannot help but salivate from.  Secondly, they are soooo good.  Before, my favourite pretzels were from Ditsch but now, I’ll never look back.  Now, it’s […]

BBQ Fried Dough

Is there any way that these might not be bad for my skin…? I feel as though I am feeding my spots, making them inflate further. If you’re wondering what they are, see the title… *eating with dread but unable to stop* >_< I’m back at home at the moment, so there’s loads of snacks […]

The Woolpack, London

Sun is shining, it’s summer again in September/October (?!), what better than to go to to the pub with everyone at lunchtime? Oh happy day! Sun, beer garden, cool icy drinks… blissful! At the moment, I am currently really strapped for cash. And it is times like these when you realise how expensive food is. […]

The Diner, Shoreditch

Having been to The Breakfast Club before and really enjoying it, I was a little unsure when going to The Diner.  Though, I am pleased to say that I had an enjoyable experience!  Starting off with a Coke Float, I delighted in half-drinking, half-eating it until food came. I went for the full, all day […]

Chocolate-covered edamame!

I passed these one evening while paying for my sushi. And I LOVE edamame. Normally though, the only edamame I am familiar with are the ones that come steamed, and with a sprinkling of chilli salt. So I was very intrigued to see these. And I like them! I wasn’t sure what to expect but […]

Pierre Hermé – macarons

Oh Pierre. You really are exquisite at what you do. I never thought that I was a fan of macarons until I ate yours. Now I want to try every flavour you invent. Pictured from left to right – salted caramel, rose, pistachio and passionfruit/milk chocolate Available from Selfridges on Oxford Street.  Pierre Hermé

Real Food Market, Southbank – post 2

So, after we finished up at Le Cirque Invisible at Queen Elizabeth Hall, me and my sissypants were delighted to find that the Real Food Market was still very much alive and kicking.  There were so many yummy treats on offer – large pans with sizzling calamari, in preparation for paella. Risotto balls, falafel wraps, […]
