Lobster on the Go

Can you believe I ate lobster for the first time only a couple of weeks ago? Well, yes, apparently I did.

It was an apt environment too. During a four day trip to the splendid city of London, we ended up strolling past the Real Food market, which camps every weekend at the Southbank Centre.

Originally in the mood for fish ‘n chips, I opted for the half lobster instead, simply because it looked delicious in its red shell, cut open and ready to eat even for a novice like me.

We got our plastic plates and moved away from the market a bit and that’s when, with a plastic fork, I had my first lobster. It was good. It was really, really good. Buttery smooth meat, with a slight lemon and garlic taste. The only thing missing was the other half.

Caesar Salad with prawns

I’m on vacation, so I’ll be updating this here blog on the fly, so to speak. So no fancy-shmansy texts, just a bit of photos and the usual concise wit you love and admire. Enjoy!

So, here’s a Caesar Salad with some shrimps, seen and eaten at Vienna’s Einstein restaurant.

It was surpsingly pleasing.
