A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to get to hang out with the lovely Emma and do some exploring here in town. Once we settled on a date, we quickly formulated a plan – brunch at the Big Easy in Canary Wharf followed by exploring and culture at the museums in Greenwich.
As the picture demonstrates, I was super excited to try Big Easy – I’ve been meaning to do so for ages but this was actually my first visit. I love me some southern-US food so was excited to head on down and try. The Canary Wharf location is lovely, easy to get to, with bags of space and great light, so all in all it’s a blogger’s dream!
I chose the pulled chicken, which was tender and flavoursome, paired with chunky chips and coleslaw.
I also got some mac and cheese on the side, because what are comfy pants for if not for the ordering of cheesy side dishes? This was lovely – tender macaroni enveloped in velvety sauce, with a little crunch on top.
Emma ordered frickles as her side and they were lovely – piping hot and savoury little morsels. These seem to be everywhere in East London at the moment!
Emma’s shrimp po’ boy looked delish!
We washed down our meals with sweet tea (soooooooo good) and fruity bourbon cocktails.
A flatlay feast!
After allowing our mains to settle, we decided to go for it and order puddings. I don’t have the sweetest tooth, but some things when you see them on the menu you just have to order them. I mean, s’mores fondue?
This was an absolute decadent pleasure – a skillet filled with melted chocolate and toasted marshmallows with graham crackers for dipping. It gave me a sugar high that lasted a good few hours (making me super fun to go round a museum with…), but it was totally worth it!
Emma chose the rum and raisin ice cream, which came with its own pipette of booze and little gingerbread man!
The food was lovely, the service prompt and friendly, and the staff fun – they even insisted I get behind the bar for a photo!
A perfect little spot for food and a catch up – I’ll definitely be returning!
