Meeting Meat Loaf! (not the food)

Yesterday was a very exciting one, as Jacob and I had the opportunity to have a meet-and-greet with Meat Loaf! (We always find it amusing that one of our favourite musicians has that name πŸ˜€ ). His new album is released today, and he was signing a sleeve for each of us in advance. It was a very precious moment which included tears from the man himself! Meat is a humble and friendly man and it was an honour to meet him πŸ™‚

As always, going on a trip is a great opportunity to visit new vegan eateries and sample some delish nosh. Yesterday included Tibits and Cookies and Scream, both of which I was very eager to visit!

Tibits is a veggie/vegan restaurant off Regent Street, where you serve yourself from a wide range of dishes and cuisines, and pay based on the weight of your plate. I couldn’t choose what to have, so had a bit of everything πŸ˜€ It was good value, and I also had a truly yummy homemade ginger lemonade πŸ™‚

We then took the bus up to Camden Market, which is such a lively, cool place full of exciting stalls selling gifts, clothes and food. Cookies and Scream was a challenge to locate, as it is a tiny counter tucked away in one of the market halls, but it was well worth the confusion! It is entirely vegan and gluten-free, with a wide range of cakes, cookies, milkshakes and sundaes. After a lot of deliberation, Jacob chose a slice of their chocolate pie, and I had a cookie dough sundae πŸ™‚ It wasn’t just the best vegan ice-cream I have had; it was the best ice-cream I have EVER had!!

We were so full afterwards, which turned out to be a good thing, as we were queuing for Meat Loaf for over three hours!! Was totally worth it though πŸ™‚ Photographs with Meat were not permitted, unfortunately, so instead I’ll insert a photo of me and Jacob in our gothy outfits before we left home πŸ˜€
