The moment we’ve all been dreading and eagerly awaiting in equal measure is nearly upon us: the final ever season of Game of Thrones. Expect more memorable quotes, deaths of your favourite characters, and epic battles to decide who will sit on the Iron Throne once and for all. From cosy nights watching from the sofa to group viewings and rousing renditions of that epic theme tune in bars, we’ll all have our ways of celebrating/mourning the 8th season of one of the biggest and best shows ever to grace our screens. Let’s take a look at how food and drink companies around the world have paid tribute to the show – old episodes, and the new.

WHERE ARE MY DRAGONS?! Oh, they’re in the fridge

UK-based fellow food delivery company are giving customers the chance to channel their inner Khaleesi with their very own Easter x GoT collaboration. These hand-painted white chocolate dragon eggs weigh in at a hefty 1kg and are available to order for one week only with food deliveries. P.S. don’t try sitting on them. They probably won’t hatch.

Lord of Light…and Dark

Oreo’s offering consists of special edition cookies paying homage to some familiar designs from the show. You can choose from House Stark’s direwolf, House Targaryen’s dragon, House Lannister’s lion, or the White Walkers’ infamous leader, the Night King – or gorge like Season 1 Robert Baratheon and eat all four.

Final season spirit

Johnnie Walker devotes themselves to the dark side with their White Walker whisky. When this snazzy bottle reaches the chilly temperature of 1.5 degrees, the label will reveal the message ‘Winter Is Here’, meaning only one thing – it’s time for a drink.

“I drink and I know things”

And you can too, with this offering from New York-based brewery, Ommegang. This punchy 9.5% ABV beer-wine hybrid is in fact Ommegang’s 14th brew celebrating GoT, and has been dubbed ‘For The Throne’.

Rare, medium, or Dracarys?

Available at New York’s Madison Square Park Shake Shack only (sorry Shanghaiers), this exclusive, secret Game of Thrones menu offers up a Dracarys Burger – two patties, bacon, Monterey Jack, and spicy sauce – and white chocolate mint Dragonglass Shake with shards of dragonglass on top. The shards are thankfully safe for non-White Walkers to eat, made up of toffee, food colouring and butter. There is, however, one catch to this menu: you have to order in Valyrian. Shake Shack has been kind enough to publish the handy pronunciation guide you’ll find above, so put the Chinese lessons on hold for now and get to work on the really important stuff.

A can has no name

Mountain Dew’s limited-edition cans might appear nameless and faceless when warm, but they clearly understand revenge is best served cold; when kept in a cool, Northern Westerosichill (the fridge will do), the cans will reveal Arya Stark’s frequently-quoted kill list. There are just 800 of these available, and you’ll have to enter a competition telling Mountain Dew what you would do #ForTheThrone to be in with a chance of winning one.

The Pretzel Throne

Snyder’s of Hanover used over 1000 pretzels to forge this impressive throne. We imagine it’s a whole lot tastier than that iron one they’re fighting over in the show… but we can’t imagine it’s much more comfortable.

Friday Favourite: Pomelo Thai

A sudden change into warm weather got us in a slightly exotic mood, so we decided to head down to the popular Pomelo Thai near at the Shanghai Centre in between Jing’an Temple and West Nanjing Road.

pomelo1

Pomelo Thai is a casual eatery that brings customers authentic tastes from the Kingdom of Smiles. The decor creates a relaxed atmosphere with comfortable, colourful surroundings, and a quick look at their menu makes things just a little more comfortable with their affordable prices. We couldn’t wait to tuck in and see how these dishes compared to some of the other Thai spots in Shanghai.

Spring Rolls

pomelo2

We would’ve not been happy with ourselves if we came without trying their homemade spring rolls, so it was the first ordered and the first to arrive. The skin is crispy and delicate just as you’d expect with a vegetarian filling of bean curd, vermicelli, carrot, onion and cabbage, sounds a healthy start to the meal, right? Served with a sweet chilli sauce and coming in at only 18RMB it’s well worth it.

Pad Thai

pomelo3

Have you ever eaten Thai food without even ordering Pad Thai? Well then shame on you! We’ve tried a lot of Pad Thai’s in Shanghai, and sometimes they can overdo it on the sweetness, but Pomelo Thai managed to get the balance just right, and it’s generous on the shrimps with a satisfying portion of rice noodles stir-fried with smoked tofu, beansprouts and egg.

Yellow Beef Curry

pomelo4

Perhaps not the most popular choice when it comes to Thai curries, the Thai Yellow Beef Curry is a mild creamy curry cooked with broccoli, tomatoes and potatoes making it a hearty addition to the meal. It makes a pleasant change from the usual green or red curry we always order, if you’re not big on spice but love a good curry then this one is for you, also available with chicken.

Hainan Chicken Rice Set

pomelo5

Not a classic Thai dish but as the newest addition to their menu, we put in an order for the Hainan Chicken Rice Set and were not disappointed. The Hainan style chicken was cooked tenderly and accompanied by three dips, served with chicken rice and a bowl of chicken soup. It’s a perfect filling meal for any season.
