Food of the Future – Something for the Weekend

Fishy Findings in East London

The third picture up there in particular made me laugh – it looked like the fish version of a wife and kids visiting Daddy in jail. It’s a ‘blink and you’d miss it’ kinda place, but if you get the … Continue reading Fishy Findings in East London
