Hello again old friends and welcome to those of you of a newer persuasion! This is a short post but I just had to rave about the night I had on Monday…it was super!
The background to this splendid Monday was celebration of the fact that the bf and I have been together for a year…yes, a whole year! This in itself is pretty awesome and then we made it even better with 0ur night out.
We started off in Wahaca in Covent Garden which is one of a fairly small chain of Mexican restaurants. The mojito which began our meal was super tasty, though I must say my dad is still winning in terms of making the best mojitos ever (perhaps because just 1 will get you super drunk!) and that progressed into a passion fruit margarita which was deliciously summery 🙂 Then we moved onto the food, it was quick, cheap and very tasty – plus it came with an assortment of spicy sauces to make it more authentic for those who can take it. Apparently I can’t take it. 1 baby finger full of the mild sauce had me breathing fire and downing the bf’s hibiscus margarita! An added bonus at Wahaca is that a lot of their food is gluten free, they even have gluten free wraps which is pretty rare.
For desert there were churros with melted chocolate and salted caramel ice cream. Yes, for those of you who are observant, I know this all goes against the rules of my candida diet but it was our first anniversary, I had to enjoy it! This was my first foray into salted ice cream and it was beautiful, sweet caramel, then chocolate chunks followed by a mild salty after taste…yum!
Although the mains had been with us very quickly, the desserts took forever so we then had a quick hop, skip and jump round the corner to the Garrick Theatre to see Pygmalion. I loved it! Kara Tointon’s performance was spot on; her posture and range of dialects combined perfectly with her superb comic timing to produce a truly enticing Eliza Doolittle. I had not expected it but Rupert Everett’s performance, though good, was overshadowed by that of Kara which is credit to her in my opinion. Everybody should try and get tickets to this show, it’s so much fun and just whizzes by in the blink of an eye 🙂
And that was that, our evening of fun and I loved it. Thank you to the bf who has made this a super year, I can’t wait to see what we get up to in the next one.
