Something New Every Day

A record of doing a new thing every day in 2011

Had some gingko (12/365) Wednesday January 12, 2011

I was going to do some more work on my Windows Phone app, but got stymied by the slow verification process. Luckily I did do something new today at lunchtime We were looking for a Thai place we used to go to on Broadwick Street but it turns out it shut a while back. However we saw a juice bar/sandwich place called Crussh nearby so we though we’d give it a go.

I wasn’t particularly impressed. I had a butternut, red aduki and gingko soup, which sounded interesting but actually was a little dull. The sandwich choice was a little poor although the juice @markath had looked OK. Probably won’t be rushing back.

Only now have I found out what gingko actually is. From Wikipedia it appears it’s actually Gingko Bilboa which is supposed to enhance your memory and attention although studies - as ever - seem inconclusive. In my very limited experience I can’t remember if it helped this afternoon.
