Happy Weekend, y’all! Loving this video of 100 years of fashion in London from 1911 – 2011.
Favourite decades: 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s and now.
Sidetrack: Have you noticed that the “goodness” of music and fashion started becoming inversely proportionate to each other from the 70s on?
part of the Gallipoli chain of restaurants along Upper Street in Angel. Gallipoli Bazaar, Gallipoli Again and Gallipoli Bistro.
They opened 2 more in addition to the original because they have that many customers each night. We’re talking about endless streams of people coming from all over London to just get their Turkish fix. Endless! Even people who have made reservations were made to wait, people without were just told to try their luck at their other branches next door.
We were lucky, we beat the dinner crowd, so we managed to get a place in the Gallipoli Bazaar, just barely.
We grabbed the usual Hummous for our starter. It came with bread that was toasted to perfection. Our bread had gotten cold after a while and they replaced it with a basket of piping hot ones.
The skin crisp and the inside soft and delicate. Best bread I have ever eaten, and I have tried a lot of bread around the world, so either it really was true, or I must’ve been too hungry.
The mains were Harem Kebab – finely chopped chicken breast, laid on a bed of pitta bread, topped with yogurt and a secret recipe sauce – and Chicken Gallipoli – Grilled chicken breast marinated in cold milk, black pepper and garlic, served with rice and salad. Sounds delicious? It was! The food completely exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend this place to ANYONE who’s in London.
Prices are pretty reasonable as well. They even have wicked lunch specials that are easy on the dollar and equally mind blowing.
(I apologise for the resolution of the pictures, they were taken with a handphone camera because it was a last minute decision to go there.)
FEAST YOUR EYES!!! For this is not what it seems…
The spaghetti, fried eggs and lasagna above are all in fact, gelato ice-cream. Don’t believe me? Take a closer look!
Chanced upon this gem somewhere along Charing Cross near the National Portrait Gallery London in a quaint little cafe called Ciao. How original. Haha, no matter, as mind boggling as it looks, the gelato is actually pretty darn good.
So If you’re ever in London and are craving for some gelato, check Cafe Ciao out.
