Second Cup

3 Feb

London Fog: If you’ve ever desired a drink of heavenly vanilla, creamy milky-fluff…this one’s for you.

The London Fog/Earl Grey Tea Latte/Grey Tea Misto hails all the way from Vancouver, British Columbia. Reminiscent of winter days at my favorite L’Aroma Café in Boston, I was ecstatic to see Second Cup‘s adoption of this soul-warming indulgence.

In fact, I almost hugged the cashier upon my first order from the Second Cup on Raouche. What followed was a journey to perfection. Second Cup on Raouche had just opened, and the staff hadn’t yet encountered an order of London Fog. So when I first received my London Fog, sans vanilla and fluff, the monster critic inside of me screamed…

…And out came the absence of my arabic as I thrust my defected London Fog back at the barista and shouted, “Shrabo! Shrabo!” (For all non-Arabic speakers, “shrabo” might not simply mean “drink it,” and it might mean something very cheeky.)

Subsequently, I joined forces with Team Second Cup and we brought to refinement the first proper London Fog of Beirut. Thereafter, I became a regular, and Second Cup on Raouche became the Official House of London Fog.
