So what to do when you have no boiler, no hot water, no heating, no gas and no access to your kitchen? Go out for lunch of course! It was a bit of a spontaneous one yesterday, but it wastotally necessary – you should see the state of our kitchen, it’s utter chaos!
With heads held high we took the opportunity to go a restaurant we’ve been dying to try out since we came back from Christmas, La Cinquecenta Pizzeria. Boy, is this a good find!
It was steaming hot and just out the pizza oven – so hot my camera was steaming up! I can’t tell you how good it was, hot delicious mozzarella, chicken, chorizo, peppers, grilled aubergines – it was just the pick me up that I wanted!
All topped off with some excellent service, and waiters who are more than happy to have a good joke with you. I’d had to take one of my boots to the cobblers so cue endless jokes about having a third leg as my poor little boot was just sitting merrily beside me!
There’s only one way to wash down a pizza in France: with a carafe of rose wine!
We were done. We were full. But then the lovely waiter brought us the dessert menu, and we discovered that there was still a tiny little pocked in our tummies that wasn’t quite full just yet!
My flatmate was sold at the notion of “Tiramisu” but I kept ploughing through the menu only to be stopped in my tracks by the ice-cream: chocolate and salted caramel ice cream. Oh helloooo.
Now officially full to the pits of our stomach we rolled ourselves home – to the plumber who was apparently waiting for us! Whoops!
We dashed home so quickly that I forgot to get a snap of my outfit (again). But I did manage to sneak a photo of this little baby.
A vintage little number that actually belongs to my mummy, but that she’s let me borrow for the past couple of years! If you’re looking for a vintage Chanel, or in fact any designer handbag, check out Vestiaire Collective for some options!
