So much food for an afternoon…

I went out on a lovely sunny Sunday for Dim Sum at Wing Yip with a couple of friends. We ended up ordering quite a bit of food and waited till it all arrived so we could take a photo of a table full of food.

Never had a photo like this.

This amount of food filled us up a lot! Nom nom nom! I really like Har Gao (prawn dumplings) whenever I go Yum Cha.

Reading the menu

Afterwards I was taken across the road to a delicious ice cream parlour called Kaspa’s. They make an assortment of ice cream flavours and rather large bowls of ice cream sundaes. Bigger than the ones stereotypically from American restaurants. I mean look at them!

Oreo Sundae

Each sundae had a few scoops of flavoured ice cream,  topped with soft ice cream and covered in sauce or chocolate toppings and two wafers. It was delicious!

Review: Chin Chin Labs Camden

Chin Chin Labs is very famous for making frozen ice cream with liquid nitrogen on their premises. Their shop in Camden Town is usually busy with a queue outside during the summer months.

I went last summer when I happened to stumble across it during my trip to Camden. Although there was a queue, it wasn’t long till we were served. The ice cream is mixed in stand mixers (I want one!) And the liquid nitrogen poured in, releasing a mysterious steam from the pot.

All the staff is dressed in lab coats and goggles. They are very friendly but too busy to have a chat xD

The ice cream is served in small polystyrene bowls lined with a sheet of paper with their printed logo. The ice cream looks like it’s been painted into the bowl in a swift movement. You get a good portion in each bowl.

We tried the chocolate and honeycomb flavour. Both were really nice and not too sweet. The chocolate flavour was more bitter than sweet and tasted like brownies.

I would totally recommend the place for any dessert or ice-cream lovers. Its a really cool experience to watch it being made!

Have you tried liquid nitrogen ice cream?
What’s your favourite flavour ice cream?

Review: Bar Café Ciao, Leicester Square

Hidden on the main stretch of road between Leicester Square station and Trafalgar Square is this dessert house that serves ice cream in the form of famous Italian dishes.

Me with the birthday girl

They also create huge sundaes with very tasty ice cream! The flavours are very distinct and aren’t very sweet like from Haagendas. They also serve sorbets plus frozen yogurt for those who are watching their calories.

Dessert!

We went here on Krystal’s birthday party and the waiter was very kind enough to offer a very special sundae filled with fruit, ice creams and sorbets. It looked amazing!

She and her boyfriend managed to devour the whole sundae! I ate a normal sized one in my own! Hahaha. We were hungry children Lol.

Ciao make delicious sundaes!

I do like this dessert house and will visit often for the summer.

Review: Bodeans BBQ Restaurant and Cookies & Cream

image

image

For my friend’s 27th birthday, she invited us to go to Bodeans in Tower Hill, an American BBQ restaurant that serves a lot of beef, pork and carbs.

image

This is not a restaurant for the faint hearted! The portions here are large and it really reminded me of Man vs Food and Epic Meal Time. I would suggest it to those with very big appetites.

image

I shared a large Bodeans Boss platter for two with another two friends. There were burnt ends, ribs, pork, chicken, coleslaw and chips. It was a lot of meat to devour but I really enjoyed it! I probably could have finished it sharing with two people because I was eating other people’s food when I finished mine hahaha. Not enough!! (Makes me realise that I eat a lot!)

image

Afterwards, we went to Cookies & Cream in Whitechapel. It was a good walk and short bus journey ^^ Here we had ice creams and caramel tarts with custard. People who were full just had a mocktail each. I ordered a mint Aero sundae. Whoop whoop! It was delicious but very chocolatey… They popped in so many Aero chocolate balls. I think I was getting slightly sick on chocolate towards the end.

image

It was a good evening and we all enjoyed ourselves with our food babies.

image

I would definitely recommend these places but Bodeans is a very strict chain of restaurants. They limit you to two hours to eat all your food and you must have a full party, else they’ll charge you for every missing party member. So if you have fickle friends who drop out last minute, I wouldn’t suggest inviting them; as mean as it sounds you don’t want to have to pay extra due to their laziness to attend.

Did any of you enjoy BBQ meat/healthy salads for the summer?
