Meal #39: Lunch

Cheddar and pickle sandwich with tomato soup, Pret A Manger, Oxford, UK

Another amazing lunch from Pret A Manger! Not really French at all, but so good all the same. This was a very good cheddar and pickle sandwich with a cup of smooth and tasty tomato soup. I normally don’t like tomato soup, but today I decided to be brave and put all my trust in the Pret. It paid off, this was a very simple but very tasty lunch.

Meal #23: Lunch

Chicken and bacon sandwich with soup, Pret, Oxford, UK

Pret is my new favorite lunch spot, it’s like Eat. but better.  They sell sandwiches and salads and soups and weird drinks with a flair for interesting combinations that are inexpensive as well as delicious.  My sandwich was awesome!  Marinated grilled chicken that was slightly shredded and added to the mayonnaise, layered with thick pieces of salty English bacon, and a fresh punch of mixed greens.  The soup was a bacon and tomato with crème fraiche.  I normally don’t go for tomato soups, but it sounded so good, I just had to get it.  And it was well worth it, so creamy and smooth with chunks of that amazing salty English bacon.  The drink was pretty great as well, it was another “no nasties” sparkling beverage flavored this time with grape and elderflower!  It was more tart than sweet, but also very pleasantly aromatic.  Overall, it was a great lunch!  I will be back to Pret again!
