bombay burrito - logo

On a late Tuesday night I was craving some food when I happened to come across something I had never seen before, a place that sold Indian burritos, Bombay Burrito. It’s a small place from first glance but it has plenty of seating space downstairs, more importantly it has taken something that is usually considered Mexican and put a very interesting spin on it.

Curious I ordered a Tandoori chicken burrito with medium spice sauce, lettuce, cheese, crispy onions and chilli sauce. As usual eating a burrito is a very messy experience but one that was familiar and unfamiliar at the same time. The burrito had a bit of crispiness and heat to it but it feels like it’s rebelling against system, trying to redefine what a burrito is.

If a burrito is just a portion of meat/meat substitute with vegetables and sauces then that opens up the barriers for so many different flavours outside of the usual Mexican ones. If you had a wrap with grilled chicken, teriyaki sauce and kimchi would that count as a burrito?

Regardless at just £4.95 for a very generously sized meal I buy levitra legal us definitely think it’s worth checking it out if only for the unusual experience of biting in to a burrito and a different form of spice and heat in the form of a curry.

As part of a

way to spice up your fries McDonald’s are now selling smokey BBQ McShaker fries in the UK. While it may just be regular everyday fries that come in a special bag with a sachet of

BBQ seasoning the flavour you

get from them is actually quite nice, worth the extra 20p? Probably not.

bbq smokehouse - 1

Every once in a while McDonald’s comes out with a new and sometimes unique creation, sometimes it’s a drink or snack hit usually it’s a burger. The BBQ smokehouse burger recently made its way to UK menus for just £4.19.

As per usual it comes in a very nicely designed cardboard box but the contents of the box are what’s more important here. By McDonald’s standards the burger

was good it had a meatier patty than usual, a good amount of

crunch from the onions and what I think was a brioche bun which was an unexpected twist.

When you go to McDonald’s you know you’re not going to get the best burgers but for the price the barbecue bacon burger is actually a decent snack so if that’s your thing I recommend you try it.


five guys bacon milkshake - 1

We all know five guys does some dayum good burgers and fries but never did I expect to see the choice to add apple wood smoked bacon to your milkshake. By standing on my tip toes I was able to see that they crumble the bacon and mix it in to the milkshake as opposed to blending it in which meant it was a little crunchy but I feel like it was a good move to me sure it didn’t overpower the shake.

It took me a while to think of how to describe the taste but I think deep sums it up pretty nicely.

It’s sweet but at the same the bacon give it that savoury taste almost like you mixed ice cream with beef jerky. It’s thick both in texture and flavour and definitely not for everyone but I think it’s an interesting sensation ou acheter du cialis forum that should be tried at least once.

tornado fries - 1

Keeping with the theme of novelty food products I never knew you could create such an interesting shape with potatoes, despite having the taste and texture of crisps the tornado fries spiral up a stick create an edible sculpture of sorts. It’s not until you try to eat it though that you realise how difficult it actually is and the amount you actually get is not much more than a regular 35g packet of crisps for the price £4. Honestly i’m not even mad as the whole experience and skills that must’ve gone in to making it was well worth the money in my opinion.


square burger - 1

Another stand that caught my eye at Winter Wonderland was Square Burger, the only stand that serves burgers with square patties. While I didn’t buy one myself I did try a bit of Kyri’s burger and once you get over the whole square-ness novelty it’s not really much better than what you would get from any other burger stand, there wasn’t anything wrong with it but it by no means lives up to the BBQ House pulled pork burger we had earlier.

kurz lang - 2

Having been slightly disappointed last time I tried Kurz & Lang back in March 2014 I decided to give them another try after seeing that people who went to Clerkenwell Design Week were given a 15% discount off their order. While I was tempted to get the The 11th Generation Gourmet Bratwurst which is a mix of pork, beef, bacon and herbs I instead gave my wallet and my stomach something a bit easier to handle in the form of the Krakauer, this sausage is made from pork, beef and

spices (83% pork

+ 8% beef = 91% meat), I chose to get the Krakauer in a bun as opposed to the mediocre chips I had last time.

The sausage is very thick, and succulent with every single space of it overflowing with meaty juices and a tiny but still noticeable amount of heat to it. The ketchup was an interesting combination of sweet, tangy and sticky

which was definitely unexpected but not unwelcome. The bun however was a major disappointment instead of giving it the same

attention they gave the sausages and the Ketchup the bun was clearly store bought,

tasted mediocre and a waste of money at 70p on top of the sausage. I’m glad I gave Kurz & Lang another chance but it’s just so disappointing that they did two things incredibly well and one thing lazily bad.

yalla yalla - 1

Based in the Greenwich peninsula just a few minutes away from the o2 Yalla Yalla is a small stand that serves Lebanese street food. While the majority of food stands thrive on sildenafil viripotens

the idea of food made freshly in front of you everything Yalla Yalla serves is pre-made and warmed up which really ruins a lot of the appeal of it for me.

Having never tried Shawarma this was a new experience

for me with mixed results. The lamb mixed with tahini sauce was very nice albeit very hot but what surprised

me the most was that even though I usually don’t like pickled food I had no problem with the pickled turnip. The food is quite nice, not £4.95 nice but nice enough for me to write about on here and recommend you try it out if you’re feeling a little bit adventurous.

bbq house - 1

Having visited Winter Wonderland and loving it so much my friend Kyri and I decided to visit again just three days later although this time it was mainly for trying the food. Wanting to get the most out of the evening we both opted to not eat beforehand which was a good idea but we also vastly overestimated the amount of stands we could try out.

bbq house - 2

The first and best of those stands was one called BBQ House and while I desperately wanted to get the ribs they were so popular that they ran out and I had to get the pulled pork burger instead, which in retrospect was not a bad move. The pulled pork clumped together to create a succulent patty-like structure with a smokey BBQ taste to it, sadly the bun was just a regular plain white bun which really let down the rest of the burger, I feel like if it had been served inside of a brioche bun it honestly would’ve earned its price tag of £6 but alas it didn’t.

hyper japan xmas 2014 - 1

If you’re going to an event like Hyper Japan you pretty much have to try the Japanese food despite how expensive it is. One of the most interesting taste experiences I tried this year was eating mackerel that has been dipped in to a glass of warm sake I don’t know how or why it tastes so good but it does, it tastes almost as if the mackerel was marinated in champagne and in every bite you get such a rich flavour on top the meatyness of the fish. I’d definitely recommend this to anyone whenever the opportunity arises.

I for one have never really been a fan of macarons but for those of you who are you are spoiled for choice not just with the sheer number of flavours but also the attention to detail with some of these aesthetically, who wouldn’t want a macaron shaped like a cute bear’s face? I tried the sakura (cherry blossom flower), rose and lavender which were all very nice, I as tempted to buy a box of assorted macarons but as a rule of thumb any food at a convention will always costs a lot more than outside of it.

The final food I tried for the first time was something I have seen before but always been cautious of, i’m talking about green tea flavoured ice cream. At £2 per cone it’s not too much more than a traditional ice cream but it’s so much nicer, of course being inside a stuffy convention hall means you have to eat it quickly or else it will melt.

Of course I had to have the usual street food favourites takoyaki, karaage, gyoza and a dragon tail. The dragon tail (above) is the simplest and cheapest of all the options and makes for a nice snack but flavour wise it’s not much more exciting than you would expect it to be it’s just rice, shrimp and nori.

There were other foods and drinks I wanted to try including instant miso soup dispensers, ramen and everyone’s favourite drink Ramune but one can only eat so much over 3 days and it’s good to have something new for next time.
