    I wanted to share this post with you guys before I headed off on holiday but I ran out of time so I'm sorry that it's slightly delayed! Anyhow, the lovely people at AEG kindly gave me a pair of tickets to head down to Taste of London festival, and me & Tom were more than willing to check out some of the best food and drink from restaurants and producers across the capital.  
    Armed with a pocket full of'crowns', the official currency of the festival, Tom and I set off to eat our way around Regent's Park. We started off with a pint of Pilsner Urquell to whet our whistles and shared a maple glazed pork belly slider from Roux at Parliament Square and a portion of Mestizo's chicken tinga - shredded chicken in a tomato, onion and chipotle chile sauce.

    Next up, we headed to one of my favourite restaurants, Duck & Waffle, for one of my favourite dishes! Everyone raves about the namesake dish but for me the bacon wrapped dates are the one to go for. Salty and sweet and so so addictive!
    It's not just food that's on offer at Taste of London, there's also plenty of booze and plenty of interactive experiences which you can get involved in. Ketel One were hosting a Bloody Mary Workshop in their pop-up kitchen, and there were also whisky and wine tasting classes taking place across the park
    Another tip if you go to next years festival is to walk around the tents which house some of the smaller producers. There were also plenty of vendors selling everything from baked goods, cheeses and meats through to things like chopping boards and knives, and you can find some hidden gems which you might not have heard of before, plus you can usually find a free sample of two to nibble before you find your next food stall. 
    After walking around and nibbling at the various samples on offer, we saved the best food for last - finishing up with a trio of blinding dishes. The BBQ pork belly steamed bun from Kurobuta, Zaika's Murgh Handi Lazeez and Meat Liquor's Bingo Wings. I love steamed buns, ever since I went to Flesh & Buns i've been hooked and the Kurobuta one was a real treat.

    Taste of London is such a great day out for anyone who is a lover of food. Tom & I had such a fab afternoon so thank you again to AEG & Curry's for a brilliant day and some delicious food. Taste of London will be back this Winter at East London's Tobacco Dock from 19th-22nd November so make sure you check it out.
