OH FUDGE!!!! Yes fudge. Fudge you, fudge me, fudge all of us. And now we will fudge together and try a little something something from the Kilted Fudge Company.
Well well well, what do we have here? East London based? Tick. Bikes? Tick. Food? Tick! The BakeCycle appears to be a hipster’s dream concoction so I thought it would be rude not to check these guys out and see what they’re made of.
Last week we attended the launch of Dr Oetker’s Gluten Free pizza range to sample some bits and report back on what we thought of the GF options. As a gluten-loving woman I wasn’t sure what to expect but I have an open mind and stomach.
Knowing that Coeliac disease (sensitivity to gluten) impacts 1 in 100 people in the UK brings a big reason for companies such as Dr Oetker to introduce a gluten-free option for their customers. Because everyone loves a bit of pizza, right? So why not give us all a good option?
Dirty Bones. You have been on my radar for a while but always seem to have wait lists or are booked up when I try and step through your door. I guess this is the price I pay when I try to pop in to popular places! I saw your Shoreditch opening and jumped at the chance to go!
I tried to book the first week of their soft opening just after it was announced (I needed to get there, STAT) but it was already jammed! So I settled for the second week and I was really not disappointed.
We went to the soft opening of Boondocks, Old Street to sample what was what in this American Deep South diner. I’d heard rumours of crawfish and have read impressive things about head chef Bea Vo’s Kingly Court (near Carnaby St) place, Stax. Now opening a second restaurant in Old Street, they have more space and more potential for a larger menu and more varied dishes. So I thought I would pop down and see what was what!
We visited the Speciality & Fine Food Fair 2016 and stumbled upon Naturelly. These guys and gals make a jelly juice snack aimed at kids aged 2+ and made from real fruit juice and natural gelatine-free jelly with no added sugar. The point is to have something for kids to have as a snack which is good for them and a bit different – not a snack and not a drink, a delicious in-between!
This appealed to me because although I am a 20-something *cough cough* I don’t think you ever really lose the love for a bit of jelly, especially when it’s in a squeezy packet. So I gave it a crack (and the fella on the Naturelly stand was also a jelly fan so there was no shaming for me going for a snack aimed at toddlers and over).
Basque Food – Eneko at One Aldwych – £65 a head for 3 courses 1 drink & service
