Evidently I love food!

July 8th, 2008

Here are the photos of GUM I promised yesterday. I was deliriously happy there because a) I love food, b) I love food halls, c) Everything is gloriously retro/I actually ate some of this stuff when I was about five and c) the typography! how good is it! It was basically great.

    I love the retro bottles…they look like the old coke bottles you used to get when they were made out of glass. I do love those.

    no i guess even Eliseevsky is more expensive, not speaking about Globus Gourmet, and Azbuka Vkusa is pretty much at the same level

    Nah, but only because I’m so scared that I WILL that I’m really sly about it! Generally in restaurants people don’t care, but in this shop I saw someone else taking photos so went for it! It helps not having a flash of course. x
