a tuna steak to love

 very excited to devour.

yesterday i was able to fully enjoy london's gloom and rain that i crave so much in the uae. if it were up to me there would be a couple mandatory days/nights of rain,lightning and thunder, no electricity, just candles and good company. unfortunately, my abilities are limited. in any case, i got around to exactly what i wanted, walking, eating and catching up with friends. we pretty much spent the day @ jaks. of course we did, we're filthy arabs who enjoy their comfort zone as well as complaining about it. i'll have to blame myself because i've been craving their tuna steak for a while now, and when i crave i need to satisfy, or i'm not a happy cookie.
the illustrious tuna steak with a very generous helping of spinach and tabbouleh with quinoa. 

the steak was a bit on the dry side but i didn't care, i just wanted it in my tummy. it's not fishy at all, whatever sauce they use is genius. my friend aiysha opted for the vanilla cupcake after, i was never a fan of vanilla icing, so it wasn't really my thing. they do however have a variety of desserts that i really try to avoid making eye contact with for fear of succumbing to the seduction. apparently i have to try their cheesecake, it was the only cake they kept restocking literally every hour. i'm certain that "next time" will be much sooner than later.

happy thursday foodies!
