Great Food

Selfridges - Secret Garden

If you are anything like myself, you will love food. Here are a few amazing places in London that tickled my tastebuds.
As you can see above, I visited the Secret Garden in Selfridges one lunch time. I wasnt feeling particularly hungry so I opted for a small plate. It was one of the best food experiences I have had, the flavours were amazing and everything was extremely well done. My favourite thing ever is Eggs Benedict and this was a great twist. A toasted crumpet came topped with crushed avocado, bacon and a poached egg. It was finished off with the traditional Hollandaise sauce and I added some truffle fries to snack on too.


I finally got to try chicken and waffles yay! I have always been fond of the idea, whacky as it is, it sounded amazing. Did it live up to my dream? Yes, of course the most unhealthy thing ever did! It was so good and came with maple syrup dressing. I would have prefered bonless chicken as I am one of those annoying haters of chicken on the bone. But apart from that it was great. We also had the fries with chipotle sauce and mayonnaise. Mmm.


We have reached my favourite side of the menu... Deserts! Maxwells is a great restaurant in Covent Garden that typically sells american food. It also sells these monstourous Freak Shakes. I had the Oreo option that came with an oreo icecream sandiwch, whipped cream, melted chocolate and oreo milkshake. Some of my friends had the salted caramel shake, which as you can see, came with a caramel donut, marshmallows and salted caramel shake. Did we all feel sick afterwards? Yes.

My Old Dutch Pancakes

This desert treat was on a whim whilst we were bored at college. We visited My Old Dutch Pancakes in Holborn which is a small walk from my fashion academy. There was slight disappointment becaues their Instagram suggests there are more options on the menu than there is. But nonetheless I couldnt be disappointed when this huge plate arrived. I had nutella and strawberries with vanilla icecream and I tried my best to eat as much as possible. There is nothing better than nutella, strawberries and a big stack of pancakes.

I hope you arent dribbling too much or breaking your very successful diet...
