Weekly Love: Week 191

Have you noticed a pattern that every fortnight when I need to come up with something to say in the introduction to these posts I usually end up getting you hooked on new movies, podcasts or TV shows? If you’re into adrenaline rush medical dramas, I owe you an apology because I’ve recently become addicted to Code Black, and you’re about to too. I’ve had it bookmarked since it started in 2015, mainly because the billboard for it over West 3rd Street in West Hollywood looked cool as I was making my way back from breakfast at Joan’s on Third when I was staying at the Farmers Daughter Hotel, but it is awesome. It’s about one of the busiest ER’s in America (based off a documentary), where there are way too many patients for resources. It has compelling characters, and feels different to any medical drama you’ve seen before. 

Weekly Love 11.02.17

1. Peach and Elderflower bellinis for Sunday brunch at German Gymnasium in King’s Cross (review coming soon!) | 2. A mixed lunch at the Whitstable Oyster Company on Whitstable seafront: their house oysters are fantastic and the cocktails are good, but the rest of the menu is a bit lack-luster and over priced – my lobster was slightly over cooked and not as fresh as it could have been –  go in the summer, sit on the beach terrace, order some champagne and order your weight in oysters rather than heading there for an actual meal. | 3. Stumbling across Instagram favourites while following your Google Maps on an unfamiliar route through Soho: hello Lights of Soho, don’t you look pretty today? | 4. Liberty London’s blooms are particularly bright at the moment. | 5. I will never get sick of the iconic architecture between meetings in Westminster. | 6. Late lunching at Breddos Tacos in Clerkenwell – another I’ll be reviewing soon!

7. A (delicious) wall of sparkly Pinterest doughnuts at the Pinterest Food & Drink Awards. | 8. A fantastic salmon poke bowl at Island Poke in Soho (you guessed it – review coming soon!) | 9. Late night lardo run to Lina Stores. | 10. Middle bacon and Toulouse Sausages as part of an (almost) Full English from my recent Gourmet Meat Club box that I’ll be reviewing later this month. | 11. Mini chocolate cakes with buttermilk ganache frosting and fresh strawberries – just something I threw together from fridge leftovers on National Chocolate Cake Day. | 12. Celebrating my 8th blog birthday and the announcement of Student Eats, my first cookbook over lunch at The Duke William in Ickham.
