Dive In Dine In: Creams

*THIS BLOGPOST IS NOT SPONSORED BY CREAMS, ALL THOUGHTS ARE OURS*

So the day me and my best mate WAE thought about this was the day we decided to go to Creams!

Creams is a well known desert place in East London and is known mostly for their Waffles & Crepes – but they have Sundaes, Hot Drinks and Milkshakes!

Both of us had never been and when we saw our mate with a beautiful milkshake from the place, we decided to go!

First we googled the place and looked at the menu, thankfully they had a pretty good website with good information about the place, but they didn’t have the prices – luckily there is a creation called ‘Zomato’ and the menu was on their!

The food is moderately cheap, everything is £10 below, except for ‘The Crowd Pleaser’, but that’s for a whole family.

We looked through the menu and I was hoping to get my hands on a waffle, but the pictures showed more of the waffle than the items on top, so I decided against it. The thing that did caught my eye was the ‘Banana Burrito Wrap’ and ‘Crepe au Nutella’, and since WAE is a succer for coffee, ‘The Coffee Affrogato’ and ‘The Banana Burrito Wrap’.

We kept on yearning for the day that we could go and then the day FINALLY arrived!!!!

We grabbed the essentials: money & our appetite and headed to Gants Hill!

When we arrived, we were immediately seated (keeping in mind the fact this was after school hours) and we both went to order. I decided to go for the ‘Crepe au Nutella’ and waeam went for ‘Coffee Bean Latte Sundae’! – Like I said, coffee lover.

Ordering the food was quite easy, all we had to do was go up to the till. They did let me know that the crepe consisted of nuts and bananas which I thought was very thoughtful of them. After that, my food came LITERALLY A FEW MINUTES later! WAE’s food took its time. This happened in Nandos as well…

When that coffee bean sundae finally arrived, we both digged in!

IMG_20170324_172305_079Crepe au Nutella:- As you can see, it looked visually pleasing. But to be honest, I had higher expectations. The crepe tasted adequate and the bananas, along with the nuts, were too overpowering (WARNING: DO NOT ORDER THIS IF YOU HAVE A FRIEND WHO IS ALLERGIC TO NUTS, THE SCENT WILL KILL HER). The only thing that kept me going, was the ice-cream on the side to neutralise the entire thing. I usually love pancakes with Nutella and banana but for some reason, this wasn’t for me. It tasted like an ordinary crepe rather than this new and amazing thing that I have never tried! I give this a 6/10.

Coffee Bean Sundae:- WAE says: ‘the ice cream was nice however, the caramel sauce was not the best as it tasted a bit out dated. On top of the ice cream there were chocolate-covered coffee beans which I did not like as it was very hard, I also have braces which makes impossible for me to eat therefore I had to take the beans out.’ WAE gives this a 6/10.

 

 

 

Overall, the experiance at the restaurant was very pleasing, we were treated with great care. But the food was not as amazing as everyone had raved about. It could be because of what we ordered but who knows. The ice-cream was the only thing that kept us going.  It was nice, but not something I would dream about. In our opinion, Creams would be the place to go for a small occasion or every few months, not every week!

So Creams is a place to dine in but not every single day!

Tune in to our next adventure on Dine In Dive In!

Dive In Dine In

So, me and my best mate WAE (hidden name obviously) both love eating and trying new places. WAE said that we should visit desert places and go on an adventure and I thought that this would be an amazing segment to my blog so here we are with ‘Dive in Dine In’ (name thought by WAE)!

Whenever we can, we will visit different places where they apparently serve amazing desserts and take them to the test!

Will they be worth Dining into or Diving right out?

How to Make: Oreo Cheesecake

So I was on Instagram the other day, (@oxthefallenangelxo) just saying, and I saw a video on how to make an oreo cheesecake so I gave it a go andput my own spin on it!

This is a no bake cheesecake!

Ingredients:

Yes I bought everything from Tesco in London…

Equipment:

  • Cake Tin with a Removable Bottom
  • 2 Large Bowls
  • A Spoon
  • Electrical Mixer
  • Freezable Bag
  • Rolling Pin

Disclaimer: Whilst I was making the cheesecake, I literally made the measurements up, after that I took a note of how much I used. It turned out great in the end so yeah!

Make exactly 24 hours before you are going to eat the cheese cake. TRUST ME!

Method:

  1. Separate the cream and the biscuit of the oreos and put into the bowls. The biscuit will be the base and the cream will be a part of the cream mixture.
  2. Place biscuits in freezable bag and crush them with a rolling pin. Make sure that at least all of the biscuits are completely crushed and then place them in the bowl.
  3. Place your butter in a bowl and microwave for about 10 seconds at a time, stir to remove lumps.
  4. Put the melted butter in the biscuits and mix together with your hands. You will know when it’s ready when you squeeze some of the mixture in your hand and it stays in a shape of a ball.
  5. After that, evenly distribute your mixture in the cake tin, making sure that it is evenly spread out. Use an item with a flat surface to press on the biscuits to make it compact and flat.
  6. Leave in the fridge to chill. This is so the crust won’t move.
  7. Whilst the crust is chilling in the fridge, add your cream cheese into the bowl of the oreo cream and mix with the electrical whisk until fluffy.
  8. Next incorporate the whipping cream and whisk until the cream is fully whipped.
  9. Take the biscuit crust out of the fridge and lightly touch the crust to make sure it’s quite firm, if not, place back in fridge for a few more minutes.
  10. Once the crust has firmed, evenly distribute the cream mixture into the tin and use your spoon to spread it out evenly.
  11. Once you have done that, you could use your mini oreos to decorate the cheesecake, I didn’t do that, my uncle gave me the idea after. Instead I placed an oreo (from an old packet I had) in the middle of the cake.
  12. Place in fridge and wait for 24 hours.
  13. Clean up your kitchen and you are done for the day!
  14. After 24 hours, the cheesecake should be hard, just feel it to see if it is firm. If not, put back in the fridge.
  15. Once all that is done, you are FINISHED!

I don’t always bake or cook, I’m always that person who watches a cooking/baking video, says she is going to do it, and ends up not doing it! But I think that as I’m older (17 in 2 weeks), I am bothered to do things and my mum allows me to do stuff in the kitchen!

I am DEFINATELY going to be posting more food posts and I hope you enjoy them!
