Review - Boundary Rooftop

Blog-wise we're back on guilt again. I have a coupla friends who (inspired by mocking someone else) always refer to/make jokes about the 1%. That kinda joke has recently become really unpalatable to me because I'm haunted (and that's only slight melodrama) by the fact that I'm so well off in life. Wait I just read back on that sentence - it sounds terrible. Let's rephrase. When I'm out of work, I try to catch up on the news. When I read the news, I feel sad about the state of the world and that rapidly descends into overwhelming guilt, sometimes ending in me giving £65 to the International Red Cross (you should give too!) or offering to organise a charity auction which subsequently ruins my life. And then I feel even guiltier for feeling stressed or bitching about anything because really, what do I have to complain about? Even the most stressful bit of my life still involves free lunches at Boundary Rooftop...
After a typically long deliberation, I settled on the pan bagnat. I don't know what I was expecting but I got a burger. A heavy, greasy burger overwhelmed by goat's cheese and barely sweetened by the roasted vegetables. The chips that accompanied them were crisp enough but completely not what I wanted with a burger that rich. But I won't complain, not because I feel guilty about it but because the sweet location overlooking the city in the sun more than makes up for what was lacking in those vegetables. Zing!
