Red, White, Blue's in the Sky

Wow it has been a long time. But today isn't one for excuses, instead I am going to talk about the lovely evening I had on Friday to celebrate the end of the first year of Uni with one of my flat mates. As you may well know I live south of the river, about five minutes away from the centre of Brixton, and such it seemed like the best option as to where to go for the evening.

We started off at Senzala, check them at senzalacreperie.co.uk, for a cocktail, both of us choosing a gorgeous Kir Royale. 
And we shared a platter of bread and dips. 
The pesto was incredible, almost as good as my mum's but then again mother knows best eh? The onions were also good perfectly sweet. We had a look at their menu, and although it looked appetising neither of us were in the mood for crepes which are their speciality.

Instead we wandered over to seven at Brixton, find them on Twitter @sevenatbrixton, for some Spanish tapas. And boy did they deliver. We didn't order everything off the menu, but it came close.

We shared a vegetarian platter
Those patatas bravas were incredible. 

We also shared a tortilla:
The ultimate comfort food in my eyes, but if you don't like egg, maybe give this one a miss.

Then I had chorizo and king prawns and Josie had roasted aubergines and tomatoes on toast.
Seafood and chorizo is such a beautiful combination.

All of this was washed down by a raspberry mojito which was slurped down before I could take any photos. 

Then we rounded everything off by come churros of course.
That little pot of sauce was heaven, tasted like molten Nutella which naturally gets two thumbs up in my eyes.

I do have a little outfit snap for you. And yes I am not wearing any makeup but then my skin does not do well in heat.

I had such a lovely evening and went home feeling stuffed to the brim but very very satisfied. 

Speak soon lovelies.
