Oh my... my ever growing love for the culinary delights offered by London continues to grow after the bank holiday of 22nd - 25th April....Let me tell you the tale of my adventures....
First stop: Sputinos on Rupert Street in Soho. (http://www.spuntino.co.uk/).
After a queue time of about 30 minutes (quite reasonable for 6:30pm) helped along by miniature beers (for £2.50 a pop), we finally got a seat at the bar. And man were we hungry. We ordered:
1 x Macaroni Cheese
Yes it was not a sandwich at all... Peanut butter ice-cream (heaven) that wasn't freezing cold with a layer of fresh raspberry compote in between topped off with crunchy peanuts. Ignoring my ever tightening trousers I polished off the lot! NOM indeed.
We obviously got carried away and the bill was about £25 pp but to be honest we were stuffed and very happy..
Went for a mooch around East London.. saw the guy who played the drug leader in 'Lock Stock' (Quote: Not your average Horti-fucking-culturalist).. and i got to rummage in a lovely vintage store called Absolute Vintage www.absolutevintage.com where i brought a green pleated midi skirt and a nude polka dot tea dress which shows of a slither of my waist...
The Boy decided he wanted to treat me because of handing in the Dissertation so he took me to McQueen in Shoreditch (http://www.mcqueen-shoreditch.co.uk) .I've heard McQueen is a pretty cool club to go to anyway for a boogie and a dance but i never realised that there was a restaurant on site as well..
It was another amazing meal.... I had the beef Carpaccio to start which was so buttery it was insane. Loved it all! Then for mains i choose the Sea Bass with Saffron crushed parsnips with spinach... I actually didn't want the plate to empty it was so GOOD!
