Feb 22, 2016 – [Monday] Anything Goes: Lunch at IKEA

Glasgow, Scotland, taken on February 20, 2016

It’s been many years since I’ve had IKEA’s signature meatballs and though I never understood what the big deal was, I gotta admit that they’re pretty good. I made the mistake of ordering a large portion, thinking that it came with 15 meatballs while really it came with 21. Oh well, I could finish it since I was so hungry anyway – throw in that cheesecake too, please!

Nov 06, 2015 – [Friday] Anything Goes: Lunch

Glasgow, Scotland, taken on November 6, 2015

I don’t like the university’s food outlets very much, but when I don’t bring my own lunch (which is often nowadays) and have to choose between one of the school restaurants, I prefer going to One A the Square at the main building. I ate here again today, and surprisingly the roast beef was pretty good. It seems like that gentleman over there was enjoying his food too!

Jun 12, 2015 – [Friday] Anything Goes: Sandwich

Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, taken on November 15, 2013

When I did (part of) my PhD in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, one of the best places to go for lunch is a sandwich shop called La Mie d’Oli. Looking up the word “mie” in French, it means “inside of bread”…I’m astonished that there’s a word for it in French! Anyway, there’s always a long line-up at the shop during lunch time, and their sandwiches are oh-so-very-delicious! My favourites would have to be Le Breton (chicken chunks, cheese, bacon, lettuce, and peppercorn sauce) or Le Calypso (smoked salmon, mozzarella, shallots, lettuce, and salad dressing). I think this was Le Breton…though it might actually be Le Calypso, I don’t remember. I might have to make a trip to LLN during my July travels just to have another taste of these sandwiches…
