Who’s For Something Different? Fried Gluten Anyone?

 Patrick Grell

 

One of our lovely friends in Trinidad & Tobago, Patrick Grell, sent us this picture of what has to be one of the most unusual tinned food items I’ve ever seen! Fried Gluten: Vegetarian Mock Duck. I understand the importance of variety for vegetarians but this looks…well interesting. Thanks for sharing Patrick.

The wind beneath my Sticky Wings

I need you all to take this address down: 40 Brick Lane, London E2. Do you have that saved in your address book on your phone? Yes? Good.

Sticky Wings

That’s the address of a restaurant that serves some of the best chicken wings I’ve ever tasted and I lived in the “Deep South” aka Virginia in The States for a year so I know what I’m talking about.

Succulent, full of flavour, ambrosial…all adjectives that can be used to describe the chicken wings at StickyWings. Look I’m not going to bore you with a long review here, I’m in love with the place so it might just get emotional if I write for very much longer.

All you need to know is this:

  • The Chicken Wings are amazing.
  • The owner AKA The Boss Man is super friendly
  • The meals are super value for money (Less than a tenner for my meal and a coca cola)
  • The interior is bright and colourful without being tacky
  • Did I say that the Chicken Wings are amazing?

Get going there today! Even if you have already made plans! Just go…I beseech you. If you don’t like what you eat then well something’s wrong with your taste buds or you really just don’t like chicken and therefore you should not have gone in the first place! That’s a joke. I love you for reading my post for this long!

StickyWings heaven

Seriously though head down there, you really won’t be disappointed. I had American Buffalo and StickyWings BBQ flavoured wings with fries and I’m still thinking about them to this day.

All hail StickyWings and all that is gloriously delicious!

Perfect for:

  • Lunch
  • Fun evening
  • Evening with friends
  • Informal date night

Luxury ice cream at Snowflake Gelato

I’m coining the term “SnowFlakey”…even if it’s not in the Oxford Dictionary! It should be.

Snowflake Gelato

This is a quick shout out to Snowflake Gelato. Ever since trying their gelatos a while back I keep trying to find reasons to be in Wardour Street. To be honest, just going in to taste the gelatos should be reason enough. They are divine! Trust me. I’ve only ever had ice cream like this in Italy so believe me when I say it’s worth a visit. I’m not the biggest dessert fan but I will make an exception for them. I tried Chocolate, Pistachio and Honeycomb crunch and all were sublime but the pistachio was REALLY something special. It literally felt as though I was eating pistachios without the crunch…just delightful!

So don’t be flakey…just go! Unless of course you’re being snowflakey then you’re part of the fanclub! OK Maybe this term isn’t quite as good as I first thought…
