LONDON’S BEST CHINESE TAKE OUT

Happy Sunday people! So in my house we have Chinese once a week, it like our thing. Some members of the fam even have it every other day (I won’t say any names, motherrr). There’s nothing better than a good Chinese take-out on a Sunday eve with a Netflix movie *sighs* We’ve dabbled in a lot of Chinese take-out places and I think we’ve officially found the best one London has to offer! If you’re anything like me when it comes to take-outs you want big portions, great service, freebies and more importantly great tasting and QUALITY food. Golden Noodle located in South East London has all that! Once you spend over £30.00 you even get a free meal (I did a cartwheel when they told me that, free food whoop whoop) Literally as I write this post my mother’s ordering from them again. What I got? Sweet and sour chicken hong kong style with fried rice, Sweet and sour pork ribs and prawn crackers. Prices? Most meals start from around £5! Apologies for the lack of images everybody …

Ever felt like that? Well, this need was met yesterday! MEATLiquior has been around for a while now but I’ve never been before, partly because I always want to go on a Saturday and the is queue endless so I just turn back around. This time around I visited on a Sunday with Tobi (my sister) and it wasn’t busy at all.  Let me just say, this was the best burger I’ve had, seriously! And to top it off even the fries were amazing (I never thought I’d say that about fries because they’re always a bit mehhh!) It’s definitely a spot you have to try when in London! Plus they have ONION RINGS THE SIZE OF YOUR HEAD! What I …
