Until recently I hadn’t been to Harrods for about 10 years. It seems a bit daunting when you know just how expensive everything is inside, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t just go and have a wander around inside. The interior is lavish verging on tacky, with an Egyptian theme scaling the escalator halls that take you from the ground floor where you can see the Dodi and Diana Memorial, all the way up to the 5th floor: kids and pets. Of course I had a look around the ridiculously expensive furniture, the obscenely pricey jewellery and even tried on a pair of Acne boots (which I swear I actually dreamed about!).
But my favourite part of Harrods is the Food Hall. I could look around this place forever! From the edible glue for cakes, to the Devils Penis chillis, there is such an area of the weird and wonderful that my foodie instincts go into overdrive. I wish so much that I could do my weekly shop in there, I know now why the characters in Ab Fab refuse to go anywhere else!
You can eat at some of the concession stands too, with a choice of oysters, steak, rotisserie chicken and heaven knows what else. I honestly wouldn’t know whether to pick from one of those or somehow pick from the deli counters. There is so much choice including pies with every filling imaginable, cheese to make your eyes water, Scotch Eggs as big as my head (pretty much…) and a Moroccan section that I was pretty much drooling over.
I think I may have to treat myself to something small from there at some point. But what would I pick?!
