Step Away from the Buffet

Bank Holiday Monday and it poured with rain. 

Again, we weren’t allowed to stay at home and wallow in misery so we decided to go out for lunch. It’s been a weekend of eating as apparently we needed comfort food to recover from our disappointment.

We went to Euston station and set off to Drummond Street, home of the best South Indian food in London. A wet and miserable Monday meant only one thing, an all-you-can-eat Indian lunch buffet for £6.95.

We ate at Diwana Bhel Poori House where the lunch buffet was incredible. Some of the best Vegetarian Indian food I’ve ever eaten and insanely cheap. Of course, with a buffet, the temptation was too much and the greed set in. We left feeling we may have slightly over-indulged and my skirt was feeling a little bit tight.

After lunch we walked along Tottenham Court Road and down to Trafalgar Square to the National Gallery. It was busy but we suffered the crowds and popped in to have a quick look at the permanent collection.

From there it was back to Covent Garden where I rashly decided it would be a good idea to try on summer clothes. This of course was an extremely bad idea. It was raining, we were depressed and I’d eaten an enormous Indian banquet buffet. To say I was bloated was the understatement of the century.

An hour or so later, I left feeling very traumatized. I had caught sight of myself in the mirror and the shock was horrific. Needless to say I came home empty handed and had to face facts. There’s only so much denial one can have.

Time to step away from the buffet!
