Yesterday I went for lunch at the roof top restaurant at Selfridges with two of my closest friends, Jaina & Hannah.
Currently, the restaurant is called (and themed) ‘The Forest on the Roof’. I’ve know a few people to go here recently and heard fab things so we really wanted to try it for ourselves as a Christmas treat, especially as the restaurant is renewed every 6 months! It absolutely did not disappoint! Stunning sparkly decor to oooohhh and aaaahhhhh over (and take many selfies!) and the food was DELISH! More importantly though, it was so lovely to catch up with my friends, one of whom lives in Singapore and we only get to see a few times a year if we are lucky. Hannah moved to Singapore almost two years ago now and I’ve seen her go from strength to strength in her career and also in herself. She is such a kind and sensitive woman yet just as passionate and focused. She is just amazing! Jaina is possibly the strongest person I know. She knows what she wants and how to get it but is SO humble and has time for everyone. Jaina is the person who walks into a room and lights it up and anyone who meets her just loves her instantly. It was so lovely catching up, stuffing our faces, being our usual ‘weird’ selves and just being together in a very atmospheric but relaxed place. I would highly recommend squeezing in a visit if you can before it changes for the Spring season – truly scrummy in more ways than one! Foodies will certainly enjoy. To book you can follow this link to their booking page, and for gorge images of yummy food/decor (and some shameless selfies) just scroll below to check out our visit. Philippa xx
