Blogmas Day 5: Foodie Friday #24 : Smack Lobster Deli

After I went to Tokotsu Ramen Bar in Selfridges (post here) to fulfil my ramen obsession (another post here), I was going to head to Duke Street Emporium for a coffee (more post here). Thank god I walked down the wrong street and found Smack Lobster Deli!


The understated outside of the deli makes it a blind spot to shoppers on the busiest Oxford Street. (Easier to spot at night now as it has twinkle lights all round the entrance).

Smack Lobster is a simple deli, high stools bar style seatings.
They have a simple menu of 4 different style lobster rolls, a couple of sides, drinks & ice cream, simple!
We ordered Happy Ending & Seven Samurai rolls, they both had Japanese themed to them, a side of courgette chips & a lobster chowder.
The rolls were soooooo tasty! So much tasty lobster filling that it was practically falling out from the roll! The think cut bread (probably brioche) was toasted so beautifully!!
We tried the lobster chowder too! I love chowder anyway, and this chowder was full of flavour with chunks of lobster meat in it. It's a perfect lunch with toasted brioche! (Tho I don't think the chowder comes with any bread...)
The star of the meal was definitely the courgette fries. Smack Lobster don't do normal fries. They do courgette fries! It was a refreshing alternative. These fries weren't greasy at all! They were crunchy & juicy, a refreshing alternative to the usual potato fries. This time we shared a portion, but I am going to get my own next time, coz they are too good to share!

Smack Lobster shoots right up to be my star eatery of 2014!

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum

Lately I have been obsessed with the Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum . In the past I tried the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it was alright but I didn’t find the result that amazing. So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even.  Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night. Use it at night to reduce
