5 Kings Street
Date of Last Visit: Saturday, 10 January 2009
The Victim: Me
The Damage: £4 something
The Background: Honestly, I really need to go shopping. All those New Year's Resolutions about cooking and baking and having a full refrigerator in 2009…yes, they were crap, those resolutions. Total crap.
I felt like a muffin. So I sat around Google'ing "muffins in London." I figured someone out there has to be specializing in muffins. And I was right. Muffinski's is. So onto the bus I went.
The Entrance: Muffinski's is really just a sandwich shop. With a lot of muffins. I feel pressured to order and select a Honey Banana Muffin. And I get some apple juice. I think the apple juice was more expensive than the muffin. That sucks. But seriously, they do have a lot of muffins. And they're not those disgustingly huge and under-baked Starbucks ones. They're just the right size.
The Muffin: The muffin is good. I'm happy. Only thing is, I'm still sorta hungry. (The muffin broke my fast at around 11 a.m.) Hmmm.
The Verdict: Not a destination by any means. But if I needed a muffin and I were in Covent Garden, I'd get a muffin here.
