Foodie things

Before the baby arrived (by the time you read this it will have a name, but this is a scheduled post) I’ve tried to eat out a bit more than normal, as I know meals out will be few and far between for a while! So here are a few ‘foodporn’ (search the hashtag on instagram one day, some delights to be found!) type snaps, a visit to the new Foodilic & how to make iced chai lattes…

When I went to the foodies festival I bought the green tea and and mint flavoured chai drink powders, I already had the spiced, and often make variations of these three, plus the whittard white hot chocolate powder… endless yumminess to be had! Here’s how I do it…

3/4 teaspoons of your chosen flavour/s. Boil the kettle and add enough hot water to make a creamy paste so all the powder dissolves.

Crush some ice cubes (My desired way is to bang them with a rolling pin in a clean tea towel) then add cold milk and the ice and enjoy!
And lastly I was invited to try out the new Foodilic on western road, which opened on the 15th May. This restaurant is different from the one on North Street (Which is a self serve buffet) but still has a varied menu and lots of options. I went for a chicken quiche with roasted veg and green beans, and Sam had a variety of Feuilletés, which were being made next to the where you choose your food, it was nice to see things being freshly prepared!

We both had freshly squeezed juice, which was pulpy and frothy, so definitely no added sugar or anything there! You can view a sample menu here, but I’d recommend popping in, perfect location for a mid shopping trip re-fuel! Plus the tables and stools are all made of cut wood, very funky indeed!
