I rarely go out to lunch during workdays but this was an opportunity I did not want to miss, and I actually turned this done the previous week because I thought I was going to out with Mrs Hen to eat Chinese food… Unfortunately that didn’t happen, so thankfully I went out to lunch.
|Gusto Italian Restaurant in London Camberwell|
I rarely eat Italian food outside because you can easily prepare food like this at home… So off we went… When we got there I realised I left my phone in the office, so all these pictures are taken with using Mr Bear’s phone…

|Nice light bulb!!|

It actually took us a good 5 to 10 minutes to decide because the amount of choices was a lot than what I would have expected in an Italian restaurant. After we ordered there was a long wait for the food. I was getting a bit peckish. There was only one chef… And this is what we had…
Ms Pâtissier had the Lasagne Bolognese with spaghetti. This also reminded me of all the Korean dramas that featured Spaghetti Bolognese as they would mix the mince into the spaghetti rather than dump the sauce and mince on top like most people do. When I make mine, I mix it in then serve it. Never got a taste of this, but Ms Pâtissier finished it! Must’ve been good!
Mr Bear had this Pratto Verde which consists of ham, spinach, garlic and cream… He said it was good, but not great… I thought he was going to lick the plate after he finished his pasta but he didn’t. He really loves spinach!
Mrs Jewelry ordered the Gusto Italy pizza without the artichokes. She ate half of it and started picking on the toppings… She didn’t finish it, but says it was lovely… I think all of us could’ve finished it for her but we didn’t. XD The pizza does look good though! Must try one of them next time…

All together it came to a cost of £31.20 but in fact we got a 15% discount! So the cost came to £27.14. I love discounts. Need to go there more often… ^_^
– I also recommend the garlic bread and lasagna bolognese – these were hot!!
