Does anyone remember ChaCha Moon? That Chinese restaurant that opened in Kingly Court…. The one that offered all the dishes for £3.50 during the soft launch and it was packed. Then they tried to up the prices to what should be market value prices and people stopped going? The one that closed and made space for Pastaio and The Meh! Egg. Those are all things that I remember about it.
I cannot remember a single dish that was amazing. Maybe that’s why it closed. It was an amazing space and carry on concept from Wagamama. But the food was pretty average. Great for £3.50, not so great for £10-£15 per plate.
One thing that I do remember was a drink… The Salted Sprite. Funny that it's not a traditional Chinese Drink, it has a Thai origin. It’s a drink that really resounded with me as I love sweet and salty together.
I completely forgot about this drink till I wanted to make a lemon vodka smash…. But I had no fresh lemons. Yup, you guessed it. I had a jar of preserved lemons. The rest is a fuzzy-headed hangover.
Salted Lemon Vodka Smash
Rather than using fresh lemon or lime to make my smash, I’m using preserved lemon.
Lemonade (Sprite is my go to)
Ice and Lemonade
Stir and Top up
Drink. Enjoy. Repeat.
