Date of Last Visit: Sunday, July 11th, 2009
The Victims: Sarah, Bernard, Arielle
The Damage: £7 for the tour.
If you’re a London food blogger, Is there any other answer but yes? No. There is not.
The Entrance: I meet everyone at the train and the tour begins. We stop in front of this building. I think it is a sign from God. I briefly consider leaving the tour to register. I think I’d make someone a good wife. Besides for the cooking thing, of course. But I’d learn. I promise.
But now is not the time to dwell on my love life. Or lack thereof. We move on. To Quality Foods.
Inside Quality Foods, I see a lot of things. I see a lot of things I’ve never seen before. Like these vegetables.
And then these peppers…
And then I spot all these paper plates, and I know that next time I’m throwing a party, I’m going to Southall. Because I can hardly ever find large quantities of paper plates, cups, forks, knives, spoons, etc. in this country. Check out the selection! Some of them even had little compartments.
I wander around for a while and I’m impressed by the spices. There are two whole rows of spices, I think. Lots and lots of spices.
Those are very small bags of spices though. Those would only last you a a couple of months, I suppose. Maybe you should buy these bags instead…yes, those are 5 kg bags of chilli powder, curry powder, etc. But really, what would you do with all of that?
The Verdict: Fun. Really fun. Is that odd, for me to say a grocery store is fun? Maybe. Or maybe not.
