Dinner Date


On Saturday Dave and I had a dinner date, we were invited to the new Nando’s in Farringdon. This is a part of London we know very well because Dave’s studio is based there. I’m getting ahead of myself, lets talk about my outfit.
The weather was such a mixed bag on Saturday, it started off rainy but humid and ended up dry and cold; typical English weather! I opted for comfort, I love wearing my new trainers from River Island.  I teamed them up with a pleated midi skirt, striped tee and leather jacket. It needed something more, so to inject another dash of colour I added a recent favourite, this red backpack.


What I’m wearing –
Backpack c/o Rokit Vintage
Trainers c/o River Island
Skirt – Blitz Vintage
T-shirt – Oasis
Jacket – Wallis
Belt – Topshop
Watch c/o Timex 


Although we all know Nandos, it’s new restaraunt in the Farringdon area is situated right beside the train station. I must admit I’m a lover of Nandos food, it’s delicious, healthy and a great reliable place to eat.  It’s safe to say I have visited many Nandos eateries, but I’ve never seen such a beautifully decked out Nandos restaraunt.  I mean, just take a look at those lampshades! With plenty of copper detailing, rustic wooden textures and plenty of mustard coloured walls, I was transported to decor heaven!


So, what did we eat? Well, Dave chose the Fillet Steak Prego Roll with classic sides of chips and garlic bread. I eventually decided on the butterfly chicken, marinated with lemon and herbs.  For sides I went with the sweet potato wedges and salad on the side. Now let me tell you about these Nandos potato wedges, a recent addition to the menu.  They are a must have, you get five roasted wedges with an amazing creamy coriander dip plus sesame & roasted seeds.  I really enjoyed the wedges, the creamy dip complemented them and the roasted seeds on top were just the perfect mix of texture and flavours; just brilliant!  I am defiantly having that again! 
…and don’t get me started on the many desert options, way too tempting, check out the menu, you won’t be disappointed.


If you haven’t been to a Nando’s in a while, it is definitely worth a visit.  The menu has some exciting new additions and there is something for everyone. To find your nearest Nandos, click here.

  1. I like the trainers, do River Islsnd have them in other colours too?

    You can’t go wrong with a Nandos dinner. I love sweet potato, it looks yummy. I feel hungry now, having read this post.

    1. Yes, they have a red & white version and a black and white, or it might be black and snake print. Can’t totally remember, I wanted the mustard gas elbow as they were the most retro looking!

      A cheeky Nando’s is a weekend must! I highly recommend the sweet potato wedges!


  2. Love the post. Your outfits are so awesome. I also love that you went to Nando’s for a dinner date LOL. We don’t have many here in Canada it’s such a treat. ❤
