Review | Balans, High Street Kensington London

Hey everyone it has been a long time since I have sat down and written up a blog post I must say. So sorry for that. I have been super busy with my new job which I am entering my fourth week in tomorrow.  I guess it’s hard to really know what it is going to be like when you start a new job. 

I never thought that I would be this tired all the time all I want to do when I come home is sleep! Don’t get me wrong I love blogging but I want  to put some effort into it so I don’t want to blog when I’m sleepy which is why I usually leave it to the weekend. I am going to try and get at least two blog posts up during the week but I’m not going to promise anything.

Today’s blog post is going to be another food related one (Sorry in advance if this makes you hungry!) yesterday I went to Balans, with my mum so I decided to review my experience. If you don’t know who Blanas are they are a restaurant chain based in London. I guess they’re similar to Bills in a way but they are also very different I can’t quite put my finger on why. 

Yesterday I spent the day with my Mum which was lovely we looked around the shops and then we came to Balans to eat. I have been to Balans once before but I didn’t do a review on it so I thought that I would do one this time. I think going out to eat iis one of my favourite things although restaurants can make me feel extremely anxious sometimes (We’ll talk about that another time). 

Let’s talk about the interior of the place if my home could be decorated anything like this then I would be inspired every day. I love how everywhere you looked inside there was something to admire. I am a person who loves to look around whether it’s people watching or just seeing whats in my surroundings. 

I feel like the interior is quirky and unique but also quite modern. Both my mine and Mum’s favourite thing was the tree which had keys hanging from it. Although I’m not quite sure if it was real or not the feeling of having a piece of the outdoors inside was something I can’t quite describe. I guess in a way it felt enchanting sort of like something you would see in a fairy tale movie. 

Okay onto the most important thing FOOD as you can see I started off with a traditional English breakfast tea. I tend to have at least three cups of this at home. Tea is my thing. I really loved how they served the tea in an old fashioned way I much prefer this to it be served all in one cup. I then opted for the “Soho Full English” which was only £10 for all of that can you believe it? Neither can I! 

When I saw the size of it I was pretty happy as it was extremely reasonable for the price of it. Secondly I also had a pancake with fruit (Yes I am a fatty) I just felt like having both so I did. What is life if you can’t have two food dishes that you want at the same time. Food is everything. I literally spend 90% of my money on food. The quality of the food was delicious and really filled me up. 

We both loved it so much that we have decided to go there on my birthday which lands on a Saturday. I didn’t really know what to do for my birthday as I’m only turning 20 which isn’t that big of a number. However I knew I wanted to include food in the day at least three times…….Yes I’m going to be basing my birthday around food. I’m so excited to be going back there as the food was of such a high quality. 

The staff were really lovely and even though it was pretty busy they kept asking us if we needed anything. I highly recommend you try Balans if you have never been before as it’s a lovely experience. I’m going to sit down and write up another blog post so there should be one up during the week as well as on the weekend.
