    Do you have to eat the noodles naked? :)

    I do not eat processed noodles, but one of my children should eat them at some point clothed :rotfl:

    My 7 year old son likes to hang around in his undies and he loves noodles. If I bought him naked noodles, I’d don’t think I’ll get him back in clothes.

    I went for a meal in a Nigerian/Caribbean meal with my daughter. It was incredible value, as I had used a Groupon I bought late in 2017. My daughter gave me £5 to tip the waitress with. :)

    We had such a feast of extraordinary tastes for our starters, our main meals and our cocktails, that as soon as I got home I bought another Groupon for the same restaurant. :D

    The Groupon cost £17.85 for 2 starters, 2 mains with a side and 2 cocktails (It is usually £21 but I had a 15% off code). I saved a total of £50.56 :T

    Current total = £1,470

    Hello Chanie,

    It is Leilani Restaurant and Ashanti Lounge Bar on Lavender Hill. I highly recommend the food, the decor and it has a lovely ambience.

    Thanks for the recommendation.


    One of things I really want to do this year is broaden my horizons and try new experiences.
