EAT // this week in food

Sunday, 12 July 2015



I've had a really busy week this week, meeting up with various people, travelling back and forth between London and home. As a result of this, there's been a few meals out. Here are a couple of the places I've been eating at this week:

Snog // Brewer St, Soho
I'm a huge fan of frozen yogurt, since I can't really eat ice cream. When I was in Soho the other day, I couldn't resist having a little Snog (It's still so punny to me, I'm sorry). You can choose from 4 different flavours of frozen yogurt, and a selection of toppings and sauces - Think of it as a similar system to Subway only much sweeter! The chocolate flavour with raspberries and chocolate sauce is my favourite combination, but since I was feeling particularly in need of a treat the other day, I added some brownie chunks too. There's a few places you can go to have a Snog in London, and also a couple in places outside (Check the website here for more info and all of the locations). Personally, I think they need to open up shop in Birmingham's Bullring centre, since it would make a perfect addition to Selfridges' foodhall.

G'rillers // High Wycombe
I went here the other day with the girls, since it's local to where we all live. High Wycombe isn't my favourite place in the world, probably because I'm spoiled by the choice of places to eat, drink and visit in London. It's a big-ish town with your standard selection of chain restaurants (Pizza Express, Nandos, Wagamamas...) which can make it feel somewhat soulless and lacking in character in comparison to other towns. G'rillers is a great little independent which has only just opened up in the last couple of years, specialising in grilled food with African flavours. I had the joto moto g'rilled chicken burger with zulu mayo, leafy salad and viungo dusted chips - It was pretty tasty, and great value for money. This is a very casual place to eat, since it has a coffee shop sort of feel to it, but it's a good place to go with friends on a budget. Check out their menu on the website here.

Pimlico Fresh // Wilton Rd, Pimlico
I had brunch this morning with my Dad here (on his recommendation since I had never been). Immediately upon walking in I noticed a great selection of really lovely juices, cakes and pastries on display, all of which looked so appetising. It was also very busy, which is usually a good sign. For Breakfast/Brunch they mostly serve a lot of different things on sourdough toast, but there's porridge and granola to choose from too. My dad had the Chilli eggs on toast, which were scrambled with bacon, and I went for the homemade granola with greek yoghurt and compote. I also had a mango, passionfruit and orange juice to drink, but ended up wishing I'd gone for the freshly squeezed orange juice my dad had instead. It's a little bit pricey if you're a poor recent graduate like me, but still great quality and worth the money. The portion sizes were substantial too, since I couldn't even finish my bowl of granola!

    1. I find the name way too punny. They've even got paper napkins with "for messy snogs" printed on them.
