hi! that's me eating baby eels above!

welcome to mY thoughts on the various meals i devour. food is mY passion and it has consumed me (the irony). my goal is to build an empire (food related of course) and ultimately, world domination! just kidding, well not about the empire. i want to one day share mY culinary experience with the rest of the world in the form of exciting, delectable consumption and not just for sustenance.

if you don’t like reading then check out mY picture page: minimal reading and minimal effort at #fatmY tumblr

i would love to hear about your food adventures (or anything else you'd like to share with me)! feel free to email me at hello@hashtagfatmY.com

not a big fan of chains as i like originality but having said that i’m a sucker for maccy ds so who am i to talk??? vapiano is a global italian chain making fresh food to order. you enter the premise and a credit sized card is handed to you. at the back of the restaurant there are food counters under “pasta”, “pizza” and “antipasta & insalata”. now this is the dangerous part… you approach a food counter and place your order, a tab is then set on the card that was given to you earlier. all you have to do is touch in like you would with an oyster card and the bill is added. it makes you want to go wild because you don’t get to see the tab you’re running up!

i’m glad there is no need for me to make that mistake as much as i love over ordering and trying everything! whenever i come to one of their branches, i go for one dish only! granchi di fiume (crayfish, fresh vegetables and lobster sauce for £9.95). it’s a bit on the pricey range but you can’t complain when it’s cooked fresh in front of your very own eyes. their range of pastas are also made onsite on a daily basis so you know it’s going to be good. i always ensure extra sauce and chilli are added because it’s so rich and creamy and oh so yummy! i was uber hungry and knowing how filling the pasta can be, i ordered an extra side salad with it, i do love mY greens =D


when you finish your meal, you settle the bill by handing in your card to the cash counter. there is even the option to take out if you don’t have the time to sit in and eat.

you should definitely check out this place. it’s so down to earth, quick and easy. they even have a dolci, coffee and vino bar so it’s fine dining without the service. it can get very busy during lunch times so the wait can be quite long, i suggest going after 2pm. i had a great time getting to know someone i had just met (we were placed together on a promo job).
