Afternoon Tea: Flemings Hotel Mayfair


                                           A f t e r n o o n   T e a 

Ff flemings mayfair: The Drawing Room



The range of sandwiches and petit fours were really delicious; a clever menu that not only looked amazing, it also danced with your taste buds.                The brioche buns with an English  famous egg & mayo had the perfect balance of flavours, comfort and satisfaction.

Mm - 
got milk? -a carefully thought out selection of fine teas from The East India Company, specially selected for the 
Flemings Mayfair. We choose the Flemings Breakfast Blend and Lis-han Oolong teas, which has beautiful and unique flavours.

The pièce de résistance was the scones, with the Jersey Chantilly cream and strawberry jam; they were the best scones I have ever tasted - light, warm and melt-in-your-mouth

Its all in the details: Things I appreciated about my visit was spending it with my mum. The host knowing my name as I walked into the room(i'm clearly not famous), plus having the right pronunciation  they're service is simply exceptional.

My previous experiences of Afternoon Tea is that you get one or two 'nice cakes' and two or three 'average cakes'.

So the scenario is, who is gonna take the 'L' and whose going to enjoy the slightly better ones

But this was everything but 'average' and 'nice'.

These desserts were a dream! I'd redo a dreary exam just to relieve a moment like this - you may say I'm dramatic I say I'm passionate about the goodness of food, it may set you free. I'm not a huge fan of Meringues or Eclaires but I'm not one to write off a dish/food  because someone may make it better, cook it differently or serve it in a way that appeals to me.

Groupon:  Say hello to your new friend. So this is my second time purchasing an Afternoon Tea voucher with groupon and this had to best purchase yet. Being that there a wide variety of options on the website you can become quiet spoilt for choice. I look at reviews, search images via instagram and then middle my way done from a million tabs to one. 
- happy choosing 
Not only is the afternoon tea given to you on offer but once you purchase it you can use it across a 3month period which is great if your plans are always unexpectedly changing and sometimes staying at home chilling is a great plan. 
But honestly, truly I try to save money where I can and I enjoy trying new things and visiting new places so this was a total win win. 

So long, farewell......

Coppa Club: Lunch In An Igloo

Leave a Comment

Birthday Week: The day after my birthday me and my cousin went to  Coppa Club in Tower Hill. 

We came for brunch but we had unfortunately missed it by a few minutes, so we decided to stay and have lunch.
After all it was more than just the food we came for, it was the igloos, the ambiance and the views.

I went for the Coppa Club Burger which comes with skinny fries and my cousin opted for the Flash Steak & Fries.
The burger was a tad underwhelming, the fries were good though (my cousin loved them).
 It was a fresh tasting burger but the flavours weren't all the way there for me.  I've been to restaurants where I don't take to a specific meal on their menu but I can vouch for the other things they do.
As this was my first time dining at Coppa Club I'd definitely return and try something new.
 The service was great, there was a nice atmosphere across the vicinity and the igloos where so cosy.

Due to high demand they are no longer taking bookings for the igloos but they keep space for walk-ins so try check it out and tell me what you think! Hope you guys enjoyed this post and i'll be back soon.

Sunday Roast Dinner: A Seat At Our Table

Leave a Comment
Sunday Roast Dinner: 
With one of my favourite whats app groups, which is a big deal because whatsapp groups 
can be the bane of most of our lives these days, right?
Leaving your phone for 30minutes and coming back to banter, rants or pointless chatter that exceeds 
128 messages...whose still with me? And to be fair all of the above can be within this group, sometimes started by me but we truly love each other and have a thang for food. 

So Where Did This Start?
 It started back early this year when we decided to have a gathering and call it Taco Tuesday's. 
We'd shop and bring food into the house of whoever was hosting that day. Playing music, discussing life,
chopping and spicing flavours 
together and then sitting to enjoy our tacos as a family of friends.
 Having fellowship, sharing our highs & hurts, our present struggles, truths & words of encouragement was just the start of what became a unique bond between us all. Where not a perfect fairytale, we know how to throw shade and annoy each other now and again but honesty, the love and vibe is unmatched.

Foodie Queen's & Chef Machine's:
It's what connects most us of these days, everyone's looking for the next hot spot the most instagram-able plate...
Unconsciously we find eating out the only way we can retain a mild fraction of our social experience, seen as most of our social interaction is fed between please's & thank you's and unfocused conversation. The remanding amount is split between 15- 20 sec of small talk if that; and the rest archived into our phones. 

Don't get me wrong I love eating out anyone who knows me will tell you that, but what I love about cooking a meal with my friends at home is that it's that much more personal. There is no rush, there is no formal barriers and their is hardly any interruptions and theirs so much to absorb about each other as well as gice of ourselves.
Who doesn't appreciate a meal cooked with love, music and sass.
I can laugh, cry, and peel a potato and not feel like a lemon ALL in one evening haha. 
 Dinner with the Royals:
We cooked a Sunday Roast & Drank Mimosas. On the menu was: Roast Chicken, Roast Patatos, Parsnips and Carrots. Broccoli, Aunty Bessies Yorkshire Puddings, Stuffing, Gravy and Cauli-Ch

Now go call your friends or family round and whip something up together and take some to work the next day.
Until next time  have a listen to my playlist: Western Grove 2
