I adore London. To bits (and pieces). I personally find that the buildings are quaint and cute, even the people are jolly and cute. Looking forward to being back again next year!
Here, in this post, I'm sharing my top 5 snacks. It's cheap eats at its very best, teehee. I love snacking and I just want to share the joy. 4 out of 5 of them are totally Instagrammable!
Here's my Top 5 Best Snacks Under £10
1. Maitre Choux, South Kensington
My number one reason visit to London, truly, is to see this place with my very own eyes (and my pair of glasses). Maitre Choux, thank you for making my dessert dream come true. If you're on a diet, please look away. The eclairs, choux and chouquettes pastries are crafted by Michelin Star chef, Joakim Prat and his team. It's way too beautiful to eat. My favourite flavours is Spanish Raspberry Pink eclair, filled with a soft mousse with a tinge of rose water. I'm in heaven.
£6 // 15 Harrington Rd, Kensington, London SW7 3ES
2. Cereal Killer Cafe, Shoreditch
So, if you're a cereal fan (even though I'm a 30 something), this is the place to wander into. Cereal Killer Cafe brings me so much joy. Transported me back into my Kellogs Frosties and Coco Pop childhood days.
They have a wide array of choices, cereals from all around the world, from Frankenberry (USA) to Kariot (Israel) right up to home, Nutrigrain (AUS). And Cereal Killer Cafe just don't stop there. More than a dozen choices when it comes to the type of milk and toppings. Cinnamon or bubble gum milk? Wait a minute, I can have crispy M&M's and strawberry for toppings? It's already giving me a mini headache, as I'm the worst person, when it comes to making a decision.
I just went with the craziest looking milkshake, typical Miss May, haha!
from £2.50 // 139 Brick Ln, London E1 6SB
3. Fish! Kitchen, Burrough's Market
I was here 5 years ago and I came back for, literally, the best fish & chips that I ever had in my young life.
Look no further for the best Fish & Chips in town. Fish! Kitchen is a takeaway tucked around the corner in Burrough's Market. It's madness trying to get a sitting spot, but no worries, the fish of the day can still be enjoyed, standing around or sitting on the side lanes. I had haddock, and blimey, it was tasty as.
£8.50 // Borough Market, Cathedral St, London SE1 9AL
4. Tombo, South Kensington
Possibly the best matcha ice cream, outside Japan, is here in Tombo, London. The soft serve was just delish. There are more to Tombo than just ice cream though. My mouth was salivating over the Matcha Souffle Cheesecake and Aubergine Miso Soup that went past my wandering eye. Honestly, did not have time to try everything in the menu (with a busy day browsing museums nearby), but I'll be back!
£3.95 Soft Serve // 29 Thurloe Place | South Kensington, London
5. Ethiopiques, Upmarket, Brick Lane
I stumbled across Ethiopiques by chance. Just a beautiful (and may I say, colourful) selection of healthy vegan salads and hot dishes. I'm loving the chickpeas, lentils and beetroot dishes. You can try a little bit of everything and it doesn't cost you much at all. Generous portion and just beautiful flavours. Served with 'Injere', a savoury pancake. I remembered leaving Brick Lane, very happy and thinking, that was amazing!
