Chik’n Not So Chik’n Sandwich

Chik'n Not So Chik'n

We were in London recently and stopped off at Chik’n to try their Not So Chik’n sandwich (or a burger, to you and me). We found them on Baker Street, not far from the tube, and got our orders in.

It’s very much a fast food experience in that you place an order at the till, stand and wait for your food to come out, and then sit and eat or take it away. However, I did find the staff very attentive, offering to bring the tray over for us and checking that everything was fine with our order.  read more

Video: Pear French Toasts

Pear French Toasts

This week our recipe is oh-so-indulgent pear French toasts, drenched in sweetness and perfect for special occasions. If you ate these every day you’d probably end up diabetic, but for a festive treat, they certainly do the trick.

We had these for an early lunch/late brunch and even then the sweetness was very heavy, so if you don’t have a sweet tooth, they probably won’t be too your liking. But if you’re the type to pour sugar over your cereal, they will go down a storm. read more

Cheese Posties: French Onion Soup

Cheese Posties

Recently we received a complimentary Cheese Posties delivery for review, and we’re itching to share that experience with you. You’ve heard of box subscriptions in almost every category that you can think of, but this one is super interesting – it’s a cheese toastie delivered to you at regular intervals so you can make your own with fancy ingredients and unique flavours. This is gourmet DIY toasted sandwich goodness all delivered in a quirky package – and did we mention their name is just about the best pun ever? read more

TGI Fridays – Veggie Sandwich

I’ve been to TGI Fridays a couple of times, although the last time was a while ago. I don’t know whether they have changed their menu recently, but I certainly remember having a much better meal the first time I went. Whether the food has changed, or whether it was the fault of the particular chefs, I’m not sure – but I expected a bit more from this burger, or “sandwich” as they call it, than I got. To start with, it was brought out first with the wrong fries, and out of a table of eight there were four mistakes when they brought the food out, with another plate arriving very late. Three out of eight is not a good start. read more

Where to Eat Veggie in Budapest

Recently, I spent some time in Budapest, and gathered plenty of information about where you can find the best vegetarian or vegan meals while you are there. This is by no means a comprehensive list, but is based on my own experiences – and I did a lot of research both beforehand and while we were there in order to find the best possible options throughout the week. There is a lot to cover here, so I will get started right away… read more

Subway Veggie Patty

Before I begin this review, I have to state that the problem with Subway is the amount of customisation which is possible. I will give a review of the patty itself as much as possible, but it has to be noted that my experience of it may be different to someone else’s due to the different bread, salad elements, and dressing which can be chosen. With that in mind, I will describe the exact Subway sandwich that I almost always order: a six inch veggie patty on Italian herb and cheese bread, with cheese, lettuce, sweetcorn, red onion, and ranch dressing. I’ve been eating it this way for years, and I doubt that I’ll be changing any time soon! read more
