RB had this jasmine flowering tea. I have never seen anything like this before and when he ordered it I thought it was just jasmine flower tea, so I was mesmerised when the little bud dropped in hot water turned into a little garden in his glass. Isn't the most beautiful cup of tea you've ever seen. So tasty and fragrant too!

Ekachai in Selfridges in Birmingham
RB and I went to Birmingham the other day to look around the sales and shops. I didn't really want to buy anything, but I do like going into Selfridges, especially to look around the food hall and go to the mini restaurants in there! We decided to go to Ekachai for something to eat. I love Selfridges so much that I am tempted to move to Birmingham, Manchester or London just to be near one!
To start we shared some vegetable spring rolls that came with a sweet chili sauce.
We shared mains and order the sambal sauce and sweet and sour sauce (below), both with tofu and vegetables. It came with a generous portion of sticky rice and salad. Both very yummy and good portions that left you satisfied, but not stuffed. This photo really has nothing to do Ekachai at all. There is a Krispy Kreme opposite and RB wanted to get some doughnuts. We stood in the queue waiting and I thought it was amazing how many doughnuts they made and the system they had made them so quickly!
