Noelle and Mikaela’s day of fun!

17/05/2017

If you didn’t get the Friends reference we’re not friends.

As previous post stated, we had the best weekend! After checking in to our hotel room and eating marshmallows dipped in chocolate we got ready and decided to explore Canary Wharf. I live in the area but Mikaela is still a newbie so I took her to Crossrail Place to grab lunch.

   

Ramen soup at Ippudo, nom nom

Super delicious!
We then popped upstairs to one of my favourite spots in CW, the rooftop garden.

After wandering around we walked back to the hotel, changed and took the lift to lower ground floor where they have..

Such a beautiful pool! They also have a jet so you can swim against a stream.. super cool.

At 6pm we were invited to Bokan to enjoy a lovely 3 course dinner.

Very happy ladies!

After our meal we walked upstairs with our newfound friends Nik and Phellipe. You’ll see them in a picture soon.

We got bored so went outside for a little walk!



And sat down in a nearby park to take selfies.

And caught the sunset..

We rushed back to see the last bit of the sunset from the rooftop

 

We soon got hungry again so we finished our wine and went back outside!

This time to Sticks and Sushi in Crossrail Place

I liked this guys tshirt

The food was absolutely amazing!

After our meal we walked back, very full, and spent yet another hour or so on the rooftop chatting away!

The next morning we had the most delicious breakfast at Bokan and oh boy, we went nuts.
Cocoa puffs, sandwiches, eggs, bacon, potato, fruit and (not pictured) pancakes. YUM!

We still had some time before check out so we went back to the pool and sauna for a bit before doing a face mask in the room

This was hands down one of the best weekends of this year (that was in London..)!
We actually filmed a lot during the weekend as well and I can’t wait to share the video once I’ve managed to edit all the footage 🙂

Thanks again Novotel for a wonderful weekend!

Giant Robot – A new addition to Streetfeast

17/04/2017

Streetfeast has opened yet another eating and drinking rooftopia, as they call it, in Canary Wharf! Me and Emelie decided to check it out on thursday and invited a couple of friends to share the experience with us (none ended up in pictures, we were too busy eating)

I love the walk around West India Quay.

Giant Robot looks like this from the outside:

Pretty crazy, right?
When we arrived we went straight to the bar.

And then checked out the various food spots – there wasn’t many I must say!

Since we’re all foodies we tried it all. First up was Yum Bun.
My fave was the bun with pork and hoi sin sauce.

Next up was Bob’s. We got a salmon and tuna thing which was interesting. Think I need to give their lobster roll a go!

Moving on to Thunderbird and chicken. This was a bit of a disappointment at first as they were out of absolutely everything except bbq wings and normal fries. On top of that, we got the wrong order. Not a good start Thunderbird.
When we did get the correct order we got an extra box of wings which was highly appreciated! Very sticky, very yummy.

And lastly as dessert Maria ordered the Cinnamon bun filled with ice cream, caramel and apple sauce. Delicious!

My overall impression? A good space to hang out and grab a snack and drink, but don’t expect too much of the food. There are only about 5 food stalls in total (we were all expecting more) so it’s kind of limited. Plenty of seats, free cloakroom and a dj playing some really good tunes.

Quick AW and dinner at The Breakfast Club

25/07/2016

On friday me, Khaled and Sher went for a quick drink at a relaunched bar on Cannon Street. I had my first Pimm’s of the year! Delicious. After our drink I met up with G and we walked to Crossrail PlaceWest india quay is super pretty. Don’t spend enough time there!Crossrail Place 🙂We had to wait quite a while for service and food but it was definitely worth it in the end!
I, for once, had a vegetarian main course: butternut squash and halloumi burger with sweet potato fries. Highly recommend it! G had a grilled chicken wrap with mac n cheese.
There are still a few places I want to try out at Crossrail place, one being sticks and sushi!
