At the weekend, I headed down to London to visit fellow blogger Polly (from Polly Scoffs) for a foodie filled weekend. I had such a great weekend catching up with Polly over lots of delicious food, fab cocktails and a fun cookery class! Here’s what we got up to…
After my long train journey (I foolishly booked the longer train by mistake!) I was ravenous and ready for some lunch! Luckily Polly had the same idea too, and she suggested going to Bone Daddies for some ramen after visiting for the first time a few weeks before.
I went for the T22 Ramen – soy ramen, chicken, cock scratchings with a chicken bone broth – which was just so delicious, with the flavoursome broth and creamy egg being the stars of the show for me. Verdict – the best ramen I’ve ever had!
Cake at Biscuiteers
We couldn’t resist stopping off at the very cute and quaint Biscuiteers for some tea and cake too. I normally always go for carrot cake, but this time we both decided to try something new and have a slice of their yummy Passion Fruit and Vanilla Cake instead. I loved the creamy vanilla icing with the sweet passion fruit sauce, and how light and fluffy the sponge was. A great piece of cake!
On Saturday night we headed to Chelsea (an area in London I was yet to explore!) and had an absolutely fantastic meal at Rabbit. I’ve written a full review of our experience here too (which I’ll post soon!) as I wanted to showcase all of the amazing dishes we had, including my favourite of the night (below!) of Tempura Duck Livers!
Be at One
After our meal, we went in search of a cocktail bar and stumbled into London cocktail bar chain Be at One. With it’s lively, loud atmosphere and classic 80s/90s playlist, it’s not the sort of place you can sit down to catch up over a cocktail, at least not on a Saturday night. But it was certainly fun and would be perfect for a celebration or if you just want to party! They have an extensive cocktail menu too, with each page devoted to a different spirit, and choosing between them all was so hard; in the end I went for the Clover Club which was fab!
To end our lovely food-filled weekend, we attended a Chinese Street Food Cookery Class on Sunday hosted by London street food traders Mama Wang’s. I’ll be posting a full review of our fun, hands-on class soon, but here’s a sneak peak at some of the tasty food we made…
