So, that was a big load of time non-posting. I’ve been in the process of moving house, which means my brain has been full of thinking about things like paint / shelves / fridges, rather than constantly thinking about food.
And I also haven’t been cooking that much. Not conducive to writing posts, that’s for sure.
So anyway, here’s a quick post waxing lyrical about one of my favourite places I’ve been eating at this year – Honey & Co. This wonderful little restaurant serving up inspired Middle Eastern-ish food has perked up the little bit of Fitzrovia I work in no end. At last, a fantastic alternative to the perma-chains that litter the north end of Tottenham Court Road!
I can’t quite remember how many times I’ve eaten here. I also have hardly any photos of the lunches I have had. Which is a bit rubbish. But also testament to the fact that I’ve been enjoying myself far too much when I’ve been eating there to think about taking a picture of what I’ve been stuffing into my mouth. Amidst the visits though, I’ve indulged in the most fantastic tomato, zataar and pita salad, a heavenly lamb and cauliflower baked dish smothered in tahini and yoghurt and a rich, sweet chicken and chestnut tagine. As well as all this, they make the most fantastic iced teas every day. I’m not a massive fan of floral flavours, such as rose and orange blossom, but even I adore their orange blossom iced tea.
Oh, and the puddings. They are bloody amazing. Just go order the cheesecake. Or the marzipan cake (pictured above). I think about them both. A lot.
What I incongruously have managed to take photos of, are some of the wonderful breakfast items I’ve eaten there. I’ve mentioned my breakfast issues before. Well, if I could eat some of the savoury (and sometimes sweet) concoctions from Honey & Co. for breakfast, I don’t think I would have a problem at all.
This is a spinach-cheese pastry thing with an oozing cooked egg yolk in the middle. Look at how orange it is! Amazing.
A pretty awesome merguez sausage and tomato roll. Heaven.
And a raspberry custard doughnut. Like all of their sweet items, just brilliant.
So go if you can. It’s already very busy as it can only accommodate about 18 covers or so. But try to book and bag a table. In addition, they are now open for dinner on Thursday and Friday. Oh, and the service is fantastic.
Did I mention how much I love this place?
