Food I have Eaten!

So as I'm not doing meal plans at the moment I thought I'd give you all a quick round up of the things I have eaten in the last month of so.

The first was dinner at Guglee in Hampstead. I had Seabass Nazakat, which was sea bass coated with mint, coriander and chilli paste wrapped in banana leaf and steamed. The sea bass was delicious, as was the tikka guinea fowl we had for starter. The service however, left a little to be desired. We had to ask several times for drinks and were ignored for quite a long time after we walked in.

Secondly we went for an illusionary afternoon tea on the Good Ship Benefit. This is a tea where the food that looked like cakes was savoury and the things that looked like sandwiches were actually cake. It was really fun and definitely messed with my head!

I had lunch at The Parlour in Fortnum and Mason and chose the chickpea, tomato and flatbread salad. It was deliciously different and refreshing.

I also had lunch at The Good Schnit in the City. It was ok, a filling lunch but not brilliant.

I finally got to have cake at Indulgence in Walthamstow, I've been trying for months and it's never worked out before! I had the Elderflower and Lemon Cake and it was so so good. Next time I want to try the Salted Caramel and Apple Cake. 

I met a friend and went for lunch at Bubba Gump's in Picadilly. I had Shrimp with Bourbon Sauce and Mash Potato. The restaurant is full of Forest Gump memorabilia and the waitress even asked us questions about the film! 

We shared the dessert platter for pudding, cookie cake, strawberry shortbread and bread and butter pudding. It was huge! So despite the rather tacky look of the place the food was actually really good and I would definitely go back and try some of the other dishes.

After pilates one evening I went to Patty and Bun in Liverpool Street and had their Chicken Burger. It was ok, there was too much coating really to the amount of chicken but the smoked garlic aioli was delicious.

I also took a visit to Yauatcha for dinner, the dim sum as always was fantastic and for the first time I had pudding. We chose the Raspberry Rose, which was choux pastry filled with white chocolate mousse and rose. 

I also went to Borough Market for lunch one day last week and had a goat salad box from Gourmet Goat and it was very good. I had a barley rusk salad and a chickpea and beetroot salad with kid goat on top. I have also bought some of their meat to cook and that was very good as well. 

Finally I have discovered Konditor and Cook. They do fantastic cake and brownies. I have had the Curly Wurly Cake, Lemon Chiffon Cake and Apricot Cheesecake Crumble Cake, all excellent. I also had a Fudgepacker brownie, which was possible one of the best brownies I have ever had.

Hopefully there is more good eating to come!
