My awesome friend Rob is a talented extra and happened to be in the recently release Walking on Sunshine so naturally we headed to Cineworld at the O2 to see it when he was in town recently. He managed to spot himself for a split second but unfortunately the big scene he was involved in was cut from the final movie.
Afterwards we grabbed some food at Brooklyn Bowl so we could dissect the film in as much detail as we wanted. It was a Sunday evening and I wasn’t sure how busy the place would be but we needed have worried as apart from one other table of two the place was empty!
Brooklyn Bowl at the O2 is an offshoot of the original Brooklyn Bowl NY and specialise in classic American fare as far as the menu is concerned. There’s also a third site in Las Vegas. As the name would suggest it’s also home to a bowling alley and is also a great place for gigs and events.
I started out with a vanilla milkshake and after much deliberation went for the fried catfish sandwich at the last-minute instead of the fried chicken dinner while Rob settled on the French bread pizza, as you can see from the pictures both the plates that arrived were HUGE!
Everything (but especially the milkshake) tasted really good with my only complaint being that there was just too much of it – never a bad thing! The catfish was crispy and the bun lightly toasted. Even the chips were delicious. The place itself is really cool and inviting and we never felt like we were being rushed (in fact the service could have been a little more attentive as it took us quite some time before we were given a bill/allowed to pay.
Having seen their brunch menu online while writing this post I’m definitely going to have to head back and give it a try on another occasion!
