Pinkberry at Selfridge’s – London’s best (and cheapest!) Frozen Yogurt

It took me months to discover my favorite Frozen Yogurt place in London. There are several options like Frae, Snog and many others. They all taste good, but are quite expensive. And I don’t see why I should spend 4 Pounds for a small cup of Yogurt with only one (or maybe two) toppings.

I was so happy when I found Pinkberry at Selfridge’s. Here, you only pay per cup size. They don’t charge you for each topping, which makes this place perfectly affordable.

First you chose a yogurt flavour. From chocolate to peach and other seasonal flavors there’s something for every taste. I prefer the original yogurt flavor, it’s the most refreshing. Then you can fill the pot to the brim with a huge range of delicious toppings. You can go for the healthy version with fruits or you can just turn your frozen yogurt into a calorie bomb with brownies, chocolate sauce and coconut chips.

There are thousands of combinations to create your frozen masterpiece. For me it’s the perfect light snack and a yummi alternative to ice cream on a sunny day.

Benugo – fresh and self made sandwiches near Oxford Circus

I am a vegetarian. Therefore the main things that make me full at lunch time are pizza, pasta and sandwiches. I love fresh food as well and you can imagine how happy my hungry stomach was when I found Benugo in London’s Great Portland Street. Benugo is a modern, rustic-style diner with the best self-made sandwiches in central London.

First you can choose between a variation of crispy breads (ciabatta, baguette,…), then you choose from a list of toppings and one of the delicious dressings. I love my sandwich toasted with fresh avocado slices, salad and garlic dressing. The food at Benugo is simple, but the freshness of the ingredients combined with a natural atmosphere make the place worth visiting. They also offer a quite cheap breakfast menu, so why not having a proper brunch before heading off to a long shopping day?
