Mandira Yoghurt Bar

 

I hadn’t realized yoghurt had become cool again, and no I’m not talking about frozen yoghurt (yeah, I know, that was cringe…leave me alone!)  But apparently it has, and Mandira in Covent Garden are leading the charge in yoghurt food couture.

On offer are a variety of sweet and savoury bowels, soups, chips with dips and yoghurt sandwiches, which I didn’t even know were a thing but then came to my senses!

 

 

Menu attached below.

 

So if you have a thing for yoghurt get your backside over to Covent Garden, just try not harm the tourists who will inevitably get in your way…they don’t know any better.

  • The Place:  78B Long Acre St. Covent Garden WC2E 9NG, London

BallieBallerson Adult Ball Pit

 

Ball pits are no longer for kids alone, now adults can relive their youth by throwing themselves into pools of plastic bubbles without being escorted from the premises. Welcome to BallieBallerson.

Located in Stoke Newington, over 2 floors, you have a choice of 2 ballrooms, Retro & Glowing. Retro being of the multicoloured ball variety, and glowing consisting of clear coloured balls sitting on a floor decorated with hundreds of LED lights. 

 

Both floors are equipped with a bar serving planet inspired cocktails, though I hear Uranus is undrinkable without popping a miracle pill first!

Ballie is most popular in the evening however day time slots are also available, at which bottomless Prosecco, Punch…and Spaghetti Meat Balls are on offer (spaghetti meat balls).

Oh they have a live DJ too, so if you’re having a bad week grab some friends, get over to Stokey and throw balls at each other while drinking Uranus 🙃

The Milk Train

 

Summer is on it’s way (supposedly) and what better way to enjoy those long hot days than with ice cream served on a cloud.

Choose your ice cream flavour, they offer vanilla, matcha, hojicha (roasted green tea) and a few others, chose your extra, and then watch as they surround your cone with the sugary treat that as finally escaped the fairground. 

Just a note you don’t have to have the candy floss, but why the hell not huh, YOLO (yes I went there!).
