Seriously, I’m asian. Chinese-origin asian. We eat some fucking weird shit. We joke about it, the rest of the world envies us/ chastises for it.
But this…. I really think food should be simple on airlines. Nothing too freaky. At least make it relatively easy to identify. Is it carrots? Is it plastic? Even the lady next to me chucked the pack straight in with the inflight evacuation guide.
Strips of cured salmon, on potato salad w/ remoulade based dressing, and mini crackers shaped like toasts as big as your thumbnail.
So all is all a billion times more edible than all the things I’d guessed it was.
British Airways outbound was better mainly due to Johnnie Walker Red Label (can’t remember the edibles, some choice of damp sandwich).
Foubert’s is, categorically, the best ice cream in London. People who disagree generally are those who haven’t ventured to the pseudo-suburban wilderness of West London. If they had, they would know it is definitely worth the perilous journey to battle through the throngs of yuppies and their screaming spawn to taste the deliciousness that is this Italian creamy goodness.
There are about 30 flavours, some of which seem to rotate but all of which are good. They’re available in Small, Medium, Large and cone/cup. In other ice cream emporiums, S/M/L means 1/2/3 scoops, in Foubert’s it’s more like Big/ Bloody Large and Fantastically Stuffed. And the super nice lady who’s there will let you have multiple flavours within each size.
My Top 5:
Rum and Raisin
The Apple Pie in particular is Wonka-esque, with its unassuming, smooth, placid pale brown appearance but when savoured, there’s buttery pastry and spicy, sweet apple, melding and melting together, layer upon layer of deliciousness.
Hapi Wasabi Peas are very very yummy (although quite expensive – £4.50 a can…)
They’re not super hot but have a definite wasabi kick, just enough to be totally addictive
MMMMmmmmmmm…… Munchie munchie XXXXXX
