Reasons for trip

Having got through security at Luton Airport, the first place we saw for refreshments was an open, champagne-style bar called Dubl, We had a quick look at the opposition which were more crowded and family friendly, so returned to the sit-up bar.

A lovely young girl, with a huge beaming smile served us. Unfortunately, the cheapest bottle of wine at £20 was unavailable, so we settled for a Rose at £25. This was an Italian bar which served fizz made using the champagne method, but it started at £40.
To avoid having to eat on the flight, Roy chose a potato and parmesan frittata (£5.75) from the “menu”:https://www.london-luton.co.uk/CMSPages/GetFile.aspx?guid=3a8cf046-3b6d-4258-a126-092f88eb4209 and was going to add ham for an additional £2, but they’d run out, so the girl suggested cooking prosciutto which he went along with although we were slightly suspicious. The frittata was freshly made rather than just warmed up as anticipated and the generous serving of prosciutto was delicious: crisp, salty and very moreish.

I chose two mini baguettes which had a choice of breads and fillings. The focaccia wasn’t available (a recurring theme by now) and settled for a sour dough bread with salami, tomato and olive oil filling and oregano bread with smoked salmon, cream cheese and rocket. They were both generously filled and very tasty. The wine was put in a chiller and we were given a jug of tap water. It wasn’t the speediest service as the food was freshly prepared, but we weren’t in a rush and it was the perfect start to our trip.

Whilst £45 may sound a lot, it compared reasonably with two passes to the lounge at £52.
