Fat Friday: Vapiano

After a pretty hectic day on Friday (work followed by working the sample sale) I met up with Mum, Dad and The Boy for a bite to eat in London before heading to Manchester to spend the bank holiday with The Boy's family. We were short on time so wanted somewhere local where we knew the food would be both good and quick, so following Zsa's recommendation decided to bypass the massive queue at Meat Liquor and headed to Vapiano, which is just behind Topshop on Oxford Circus. 

Vapiano is a canteen style restaurant where you pick up a card on your way in and then load your food purchases onto the card when you go to one of the different counters to order your meal. The food is Italian, pizzas and pasta mostly, with a selection of salads for the more diet conscious (obviously not me: weekdays are for dieting, weekends are for eating). Mum and I went for pasta with prawns which was amazing, whilst Dad and The Boy had pizza which was equally delicious. As it was friday the restaurant was pretty noisy and hectic (I'm not sure it was my mum and dads cup of tea, but then my dad is more of a Wetherspoons kind of man) but I'd like to go again, maybe earlier on in the week when it might be a bit quieter.

Amongst the throng of Friday night eaters was Lauren Pope, she of TOWIE fame (needless to say, she was not eating pasta, or pizza, or anything for that matter).
