Random Food I Have Eaten Recently #3

Daily lunch offering from Cafe Adagio

It has been a little while since I did a post about random things I have eaten recently but of course that does not mean that no eating or cooking has occurred! Food from Mud and Pizza Pilgrims has been absolutely delightful as was a fun tasty bubble waffle from Chillbox in Boxpark, Croydon. Actually, […]
