Does anyone else feel like this year has been a crazy indulgent mess of a year so far?? This morning I seriously considered getting myself one of those calorie-counter apps … until I realised:
a) it’s the weekend
b) Street Food Circus is on
c) THEY’VE GOT A £5 TASTER MENU GOING ON!
So I’m just going to forget about it and stuff myself until you guys need to break down the wall of my house to lift me out with a crane.
Anyway, on with the show … the Street Food Circus is BACK in Sophia Gardens this weekend, for their Bank Holiday Fiesta! Open Thursday – Monday this weekend (details at the bottom of this post) in Sophia Gardens, Bute Park.
