For my travels I’ve frequented Stansted Airport the most, but the food options always annoy me in the morning. There are two Prets, an Itsu and a Leon which can be half-decent. Than you have an even lower tier of Burger King, Wetherspoons and Giraffe. There’s a bunch more to check out, mind you. The menu at Giraffe always sounds alright, but the end result is always a disappointment. I should have learned from my last venture at the Giraffe in Heathrow. This plate was meant to be Masala scrambled eggs with cumin, coriander chillies, garlic naan and salad. The service at Giraffe is slow (food delivery is not), the coffee is poor and there is no seasoning at all in this dish.
It’s a bit of a shame really, as a spiced scrambled egg can be very satisfying and I’d give White Mojo some post-credit for their concoction. That had a great kick, creaminess, volume and it didn’t feel so wet. The included naan is flat, dry, the eggs are utterly tasteless and the serving is rather sloppy. Some of the other tables looked to have better results but twice bitten, once shy for me. To their credit, the Giraffe Kitchen is fast and I was out with plenty of time. But I’d rather be speeding through Pret one more time than endure this.
