Oh what a wonderful weekend I’ve had. Let’s start with Saturday! I spent most of the day in bed (because I deserved it after the week I had) catching up on tv-shows, got ready and met Tom. We started our afternoon with a bottle of bubbly at Sager & Wilde, a lovely wine bar on Hackney Road.
Tom has the ability to make you look super cool in pictures. Highly appreciated quality in new friends, don’t you think?Sourdough bread and pea and mint hummus. Nom omNext stop: Satan’s Whiskers. A not so secret cocktail bar in Bethnal GreenEspresso Martini and Berry cocktail.
Now, finally time for dinner! Tom had been raving about Primeur for some time so I was super excited to try it out. It is a small restaurant near Canonbury in North London and their menu changes daily. We were met by my friend Nigel and Tom’s brothers Joe and Barns.
The most amazing amber wine. I learnt that in order to make amber wine (it is actually white wine) they leave the skin on the grapes during the fermentation, instead of having them peeled..
The menu at Primeur was simple, classic and beautiful and everything was cooked to perfection.
I love when your fellow table friends are happy to order EVERYTHING on the menu and share amongst each other (even though it is usually me forcing people). I can’t wait to go back in the summer when they open up the walls so you can sit outside.
We finished our evening at Shoreditch House playing ping pong (me and Tom won against his brothers, had to be mentioned), eating candy and discussing flights, travels and shoe sizes.
