Eats : Turtle Bay


So last week me and Rob were invited to have dinner & cocktails at Turtle Bay in Walthamstow. Note I said Walthamstow, I live in STREATHAM the other end of London literally, and I will be going back because it was that damn good, worth an hours journey any day.
Turtle bay does amazing Caribbean food, all the traditional yummy bits like Jerk chicken, fried plantain and patties but with some amazing extra special eats. We started off with a few cocktails  please for the love of god if you like banana get the Hummingbird - white rum, Tia Maria, banana liqueur, cream, fresh banana & coconut. The jerk wings were a must to start, hotter than hell and too good, the chili squid got a big thumbs up from us too. The main event,  I am still raving about, and is the reason we'll be going back very soon was the double dipped jerk steak. It was sex on a plate, rare - and Rob kept on nicking bits of mine even though he had the tastiest jerk lamb I've ever eaten. Safe to say after cocktails and my weight in wings and steak, we didn't make it to dessert. Big thanks to Kitty who looked after us for the evening, you were such a babe!

Thanks Turtle Bay we'll be back soon :)

p.s Apologies again for the i phone photos - my camera charger has gone walkabout and I'mw aiting for the new one to arrive *le sigh*

I had the most amazing Friday at London Fashion Week! I woke up ridiculously hungover after what may have been the best valentines night EVER, ripped my wardrobe apart for a last minute outfit then rushed over to Somerset House to meet up with Helena from Bell's Fashion an hour and a half late (sorry man :S). Gutted I missed the first show but I managed to get to a few more later, Belle Sauvage, Runway Collective and Nova Chiu ( going to be doing a show post another day stay tuned :) ) In between shows Jen of J Noir took me over to the Waldorf Hilton to the New Look Refuel room which was SO GOOD! Champers, little sandwiches, brownies bubbletea, smoothies, hair, nails, eyelashes, photobooth IT HAD EVERYTHING! I hadn't had time to eat anything that day so not gonna lie I got a little tipsy... free champagne okay?? I also met a friend of Jens and blogger Sheree of Glitz & Grime who was so lovely/cool/beautiful, had some photobooth fun ...
