B Date: Bukowski, SW9

It gets to a point in any relationship where it's tempting to get stuck in a bit of a rut, when the idea of spending a night on the sofa is more appealing than heading out. Rich and I are definitely guilty of this, especially when it's cold and rainy outside so when I heard of the ABC dates I thought it sounded like a great plan to get us doing more and making the most of London.

Basically the idea is that you each take it in turns to plan a date or an activity around a letter of the alphabet. So Rich planned A (an automobile tour of London, seeing all the sights, then Asian food - tenuous but 5 stars for effort) and then in was my turn to plan B. It's no secret that we love burgers so I decided burgers at Bukowski in Brixton was pretty fitting. 

We arrived at 7:30 on Saturday and fully expected to queue but walked straight in which was definitely appreciated! The cocktails were amazing and not at all pricey. We thought we'd be true to the b theme and had bloody mary's and blood orange gins.

Then came the main event. I don't know about you but I don't think there is anything more glorious than chilli cheese fries. Normal fries are just not going to cut it anymore. These were nice and chunky with just the right amount of heat in the chilli and plenty of cheese! Both the burgers were really good too, fat and juicy with plenty of extras. Both of them had an egg in which we thought was a bit weird but actually went down really well. 

All in all a successful evening! We were going to head out to a bar earlier but it was cold and Rich forgot his coat (n'aww) so we headed back home and picked up a bottle of gin on the way to continue the cocktails. No need to change habits too quickly ey? 


  1. Lovely post, love the idea of ABC dates!!

  2. The ABC date idea is ingenious!! Me & boyfriend are also in a bit of a date rut so I'm going to suggest we give this ago!
