Dessert is definitely my favourite part of a meal and sometimes, my only part. I’m a firm believer in never eating too much so that you’re too full for dessert. As many of the great restaurants in London often have their dessert menus over-looked by about to burst customers, I’m going to share with you which restaurants have the best desserts I’ve tried.
This weekend I was lucky enough to go to a secret preview of the soon to be opening MEATmarket in Covent Garden. From the owners of my favourite, the popular MEATliquor, the restaurant is set to open in May.
In what used to be a Chinese restaurant, the relatively small space overlooks the Covent Garden Jubilee Market Hall where baffled tourists loom below picking up their glass bottle ornaments and overpriced London souvenirs.
I’m late to the blogging party on two accounts. Firstly ok, I’ve been busy “reading” during reading week. And by “reading” I mean catching up on sleep and watching too much of Sun, Sea and Suspicious Parents on BBC3. (I seriously regret not going on a “lad’s holiday” to Ayia Napa now.)
Secondly, I am so late to finally recommend one of my favourite new restaurants in London: the infamous Meat Liquor that has a 2 hour queue every night after 6pm. (Yes, seriously, 2 hours at 6pm.)
This is Chewie’s, a café on Haverstock Hill, Belsize Park that serves coffee, tea, organic food and salads and lots of delicious homemade cakes! Most importantly, they make really great tasting coffee. It’s a friendly, spacious café with an abundance of seating and an open garden; it has reasonable prices and great looking food.
A student problem: too tired to go food shopping, the supermarket is up a hill, you’re too sweet to “borrow” a trolley and food is too heavy to carry uphill on your back and besides, the last time you did that you got muscle cramp in your shoulder that lasted for days afterwards.
A student solution: go out for breakfast, of course! But be sensible, eat cheap and eat well so you can stock up before having to go out again in search of food.
