churros and chocolate
when i went down to london to see the national i arrived with a bit of time to kill before the gig. i was recommended a coffee place which was between st pancras and the british library. i went on a bit of a mission trying to locate it, as it was called peyton and byrne yet transpired to not be the peyton and byrne in st pancras or just outside the british library. confusingly it was between these two locations, but the proprietors had decided to eschew any branding on their signage, opting for the generic espresso bar appellation. anyways the reason for the recommendation, and the justification for the subsequent search, was this treat: churros and chocolate. they are flippantly (though not inaccurately) also known as mexican doughnuts and they are squeezed out of a huge metal churros machine, deep fried, and then dusted with cinnamon and sugar. they are then served with a little pot of chocolate for dipping and these were sold with a free hot drink. i may have consumed my recommended weekly sugar allowance in that one sitting, but it was well worth the £2.50.
