We’ve all been there – that classic moment when our health kicks and healthy meal preps have gone out the window in the blink of an eye. I’m sure many of you can relate when morale is low and you ‘happen’ to stumble across some ridiculous foodporn. It’s at times like these that you look to your bestie, searching for moral support and remember that she ain’t your bestie for no reason. That’s right, that’s your partner in crime you’re looking at! Forget about them being your voice of reason, after all, you already knew that. So there you are sat opposite what seems to be like the most ridiculous dish you’ve ever laid eyes on. *Screw it, treat yo self* quickly ensues and as predicted, you end up having a lil’ party in your mouth.
So, ladies and gents, can we all just take a moment to appreciate these glorious times when everything but the love of food gets sidelined? Sure, a diet solely based on ‘dirty’ foodporn is without a doubt, not a good lifestyle to go by, but, once in a while, you’ve gotta treat yo self! Ain’t that right Joe Wicks? One cheat meal… Just one! In the light of this argument, we’ve decided to compile a list of the most ridiculous dishes in Bristol for you to drool over and plan out your next mischievious outing with your bestie… No need to thank us!
