Monday 18 July - Eating like kings

Current location: Covent garden
11.11pm. Oh my. At 11.11pm, we were eating. At 10.10pm, we were eating. At 9.09pm, we were eating. But what were we eating, you might wonder?

Two types of crab
An entire lobster
Four types of steak (rib-eye, d-rump t-bone, fillet)
Creamed spinach
Mash potato with gravy
Buttered greens
Macaroni cheese (fancier than it sounds)
Kimchi burger
Smoked burger
Beef dripping chips
Triple-cooked chips
Sweet potato
Bone marrow
Slow-cooked ribs

I'm going to repeat the first four: Oysters, crab, lobster and steak. Yep. I'd never even tried lobster before (unfortunately for my bank balance, it's now one of my new favourite things).

Nicky, Ruth, Jack, Andy and I went to Hawksmoor, aka Heaven in Covent Garden. Nicky works there and we all wanted to see the fancy place she works at that celebs go to (even Mick Hucknall). We got all dressed up and had a beautiful night. Oh my goodness; we were so treated (we definitely didn't order all the food we got) and it was, quite honestly, one of the best nights of my life. I'm pretty sure I will never, ever eat such good food again. Dining like kings! Kind of makes the cake from earlier pale into insignificance somewhat...


  1. I love Mick Hucknall!! haha brilliant that you all that took you 2 hours to eat!
