Last weekend we decided to head into London. It was raining so we thought we would keep warm and dry and catch up on some real live shopping that we have not done for over a year and go to Westfield, Stratford. After an afternoon of walking around Westfield, we stopped for a light snack.
The Hungry Bedouin is a Moroccan restuarant serving serving street food. I do not recall having eaten Moroccan street food before, this was a nice introduction.
We had m’smen stuffed with spinach and m’smen stuffed with tomato and onion followed by some baklava with mint tea. It was very nice and a lovely way to end the day.
In July I had some annual leave booked, after my birthday weekend. I thought it would be nice to go out with one of my best friends and eat at a restaurant. It has been a while since this has been a normal activity completed without fear and nervousness. I decided that I needed to start living again so I booked a table for two at Ginger Lounge in Upminster. I’d never been there before but the online reviews were encouraging and I thought “let’s give it a try”
I was not disappointed, the food was tasty and atmosphere calm and relaxing. I ordered Lamb Lazizi for my mains and Indian ice cream for dessert.
It was so nice to eat food I had not cooked myself! It was nice to be out with a friend and just chat and just pass the time.
I feel like I might well come back here again. It felt quite cozy and welcoming. Let’s see shall we.
There is always a queue to get in!
Well it seems it is worth the wait. After watching ‘Old’ at the cinema with my friend, we headed towards Wagamama to get some food. I ordered grilled duck donburi. It was I suppose, just, OK, although I did finish the whole bowl. My problem, ‘discovered’ the small bowl of kimchee at the end!
