Recently, me and my partner booked a super special lunch for the two of us. As dining was only allowed outdoors at the time, we booked a pod to keep us cosy and warm (as they count as outside!).
We ate in a Venetian themed pod at the Kings Oak Hotel in Epping which is a pub, hotel and wedding venue. It even has a pool! So here’s some photos from our lunch.
For starters we got a share platter, which is my dream! Spring rolls, samosas, veggie nuggets, falafel, nachos and tempura vegetables. Delicious!
For mains we both had a chickpea curry which was wonderful. Sadly, I was too excited to try it and forgot to take a picture.
Then for dessert we had the most amazing chocolate orange tart.
Honestly, how this is even vegan I don’t know. It was so creamy and the orange segments tasted like a Jaffa Cake. Drool.
We both really enjoyed our special lunch out, even though I had to nap off my food coma after! The food was great and the pod was beautifully decorated so it felt like a special treat.
Let me know if you’ve dined out since lockdown lifted.
