Food Glorious Food
As the kind of person that measures time based on my last meal, spends a good 40% of her time thinking of food or where she'll be eating and remembers meals with a clarity she wishes she could apply to things like work / study / pub quiz, it comes at no surprise that the best thing about my work is the food that I can buy nearby.
It is a place called Ruby on Charlotte Road near Old Street is a real find. The kind of place that makes me want to drag my friends and family to, the kind of place you want to stop all the poor buggers filing into Subway, Eat and Pret and show them the way of food that tastes really yummy. It's made in front of you, on burning hot stoves, as three men whip up delectable pastas, steak and chicken sandwiches that actually have some gumption and salads that I bet are nice too(I've only gone for the fat things). I have just scarfed down pumpkin and basil orecchiette and now feel happy inside and out.
I would tell you that I bought a pair of shoes today, but I feel a bit naughty and will wait until later when I get home and photograph them to fill you in.
