The day started well with a smoothie made with kale, banana, frozen blueberries, low fat natural yogurt, chia seeds, plus I added 2 tbsp oats and a sprinkle of Spirulina.
Unfortunately this then happened. It accompanied the coffee from the absolute Mecca of all things coffee – Monmouth. Bliss. Lunch was a pot of pulled pork from EAT which was really good. It was served with some rice and coleslaw. Definitely one to have again. I left work just before 5pm which is early for me. I picked up Harvey and dashed over to Giggling Squid in Tunbridge Wells. We met Lucy, Emily and Charlie for a double celebration. We celebrated Harvey’s birthday and Emily taking her last exam which means she is now finished with school. 13 years of school all done. Over. Finitto! She was rather happy 🙂
Lucy had been recommended ‘Giggling Squid’ and what a great Thai restaurant it was. I recommend it if you like Thai food. Everything was fresh and quite light.
The fried foods, such as these duck spring rolls and the tempura, were ultra crispy and not greasy at all.
Harvey loved his “Choob”, one of his birthday presents and amused himself (and us) for ages with different styles. The corn cake was good. Harvey had the prawn Pad Thai. I had the chicken red curry which was perfectly cooked and spiced just how I like it. The sticky rice came in these cute little baskets.
Giggling Squid was a really good find and I will definitely go back there again. This was taken outside a different Thai restaurant along the same street. Someone couldn’t resist getting in!
The Choob is now a bandana! Thank you Godmother Lucy for such a fab present (and the rest of the outfit but this was definitely the favourite).
You are a true artist! Even the partially eaten spring roll is a work of art. I love looking at your photos! Thank you for creating them.
Thank you Emily. However, re the spring rill, I must confess that they were served like that, carefully and neatly cut in half like that. They were called ‘Yummy Duck Spring Rolls’ and they certainly were, yummy.
