The darker the cherry the sweeter the (coconut) juice
I spotted this wonderful stall on Bond Street when I was in the capital recently. Needless to say the fresh young coconut were ripe for the picking, as were the huge extra-large cherries placed beside. Coco Face is the newest addition to central London streets, and I've become a bit of a fan.
Coco Face import Thai coconuts and serve them right on the streets of central London, so you won't find them in a shop or a flagship store. Instead, to buy in bulk you'll need to visit their website.
After I bought the fresh and young coconut, which was just what I needed, I enquired about larger orders, and the stall holder told me offices buy buy a pack of twenty-four coconuts for the office and save money with regular orders.
There's a definite difference between fresh coconuts, and the cartoned stuff, which doesn't come close to the real thing. These coconuts are fresh and taste great thanks to them being refrigerated.
Alongside the coconuts are extra large cherries. I've never seen cherries so big in my life, and whilst they were expensive, I couldn't resist giving them a try. As expected, they were unbelievably ripe and juicy. The cherry flesh was so sweet, and truly delicious.
For a healthier alternative to the waffles stands which line Oxford and Bond street in central London, try a coconut and a box of cherries. It'll be a snack you'll be happy you tried.
