The Eagle, Cambridge…a lead hangout

It’s about 400 years old,  full of charm and a Cambridge student feel and it’s where Watson and Crick supposedly discovered the structure of DNA.

Proper food here as well as bar snacks, all the usual pub classics and it’s pretty meat-heavy. Lots of burgers – the Buttermilk fried chicken burger – Ayrshire-dry cured bacon, guacamole & chilli mayo is a winner – and sausages and chicken. Fish & chips – battered cod, crushed peas, tartare sauce, triple-cooked chips was perfectly golden, crisp, firm but flaky and succulent.

For a pub The Eagle does a decent selection of standard cocktails. Everyone cares about their pints. There are plenty of the usual lagers and bitters on offer

It seems to have already cemented itself as a lead hangout in Cambridge. Time to get glugging. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

ChaTraMue, Bangkok…Thailicious tea

Who said non-alcoholic drinks are safe? It’s 2:00pm in Bangkok and I’m sucking down Thai tea without regard for the diabetic onslaught that will follow. May my blood sugar levels be damned.

Thai iced tea is one of the first things people fall in love with when dining at a typical Thai restaurant. This tea is bright orange. It will look like you took a handful of carrots and threw them in a blender with some water. Cha TraMue has outlets and kiosks all over Bangkok. An array of flavours, they also have the option of adding tapioca pearls…just like bubble tea. The tea flavours really stand out and not as sweet as most other Thai tea.

So delicious and sooooooooo worth it! #Addicted #ThaiTea. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
