TEAM: Kar-Shing's birthday celebrations ๐ŸŽ‰

It's not every day a member of the London Cheap Eats team celebrates their birthday, so when that time does comes around, we like to let everyone know about it.

On Sunday, our fantastic intrepid culinary explorer Kar-Shing got a little bit older and none the wiser, celebrating the only way he knows how, with great friends and great food. A big group of his nearest and dearest headed down to Clapham to gorge on gooey Cheese Truck London grilled cheese sandwiches at The King & Co Pub (it's the last day of their month-long residency tomorrow), and stuff themselves silly with a gargantuan and glorious cake from My Sweet Tooth Factory.

Chocolate banana sponge with triple-layered chocolate ganache, filled with peanuts and caramel, coated with a final layer of peanut butter, and topped with caramel peanut butter brownies and chopped peanuts. The party made light work of it.

When asked what this year holds for him, Kar-Shing responded in true form: "I'm going to cheap eat the hell outta London!"

Thanks to London Cheap Eats team member Matt, and photographer and friend of the team Ian Sargent (here's his awesome food photography portfolio), for capturing the evening.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KAR-SHING!
