#329: Tell us about the favourite dish or food that you simply cannot turn down.
I was really struggling to think of something because I’m fairly temperamental when it comes to food – I can be in a sweet mood, I can be in a savoury mood. But it’s something I’ll never know until I’ve sat down in the restaurant and soaked up the atmosphere. For example, one of my favourite Mexican restaurants is Las Iguanas and I absolutely love their gooey, chocolate orange Aztec cake. However, after gorging on Totopos (nacho chips with freshly made salsa) and a huge burrito, I can very really fit it in!
And then, I had a magnificent lightbulb moment – Choccywoccydoodah! Of course! Shamefully, in the past I have been known to already be full before heading to this incredible establishment and STILL ordering a wedge of cake or a delicious dipping pot! I will never be able to say no to their delights.
P.s – photographs to come (they’re on my iPhone, which I forgot to pick up this morning as I left for work – doh!)
#155: If you could get all the nutrition you needed in a day with a pill — no worrying about what to eat, no food preparation — would you do it?
Urm… NO! Food is amazing! Mexican, Thai, Indian, Spanish, Chinese, Italian, Greek… why would anyone want to replace it with a measly pill?!?! I wouldn’t care how nutritious it was, I wouldn’t swap it for all the money in the world. Plus, it’s not very social – “hey, do you fancy going for a delicious day pill after work?” Mmm lovely! Food is there to enjoy and of course, fundamentally keep us alive, so why restrict the senses… living is eating!
#53: Describe the most satisfying meal you’ve ever eaten, in glorious detail.
My first thought was any meal from Las Iguanas, but then I realised the most satisfying meal I’ve ever had, is from our local Indian restaurant, Raj Vogue.
You can always depend on Raj Vogue for every meal to be to the same, perfect standard. My most favourite meal combination is: Lamb Dupiaza, Garlic Rice, Cheese and Garlic Naan, a Poppadom and lots of delicious mango chutney. The greatness about this is that I can only ever eat half, so there’s always plenty for the next day too!
The fact that we only indulge in this meal on special occasions makes it even more satisfying. I plan to treat myself for my birthday in a couple of weeks time… I can’t wait!
