I can’t lie: the food is one of my favorite parts of traveling. Sure by the end of the trip I miss my home cooked meals (and in this case tap water ), but it’s fun to step away from your normal routine and try foods you wouldn’t normally eat on a daily basis. Calories totally don’t count on vacation, right?
The first meal I had in London was actually in the Heathrow Airport. Layna and I were starving since we had slept through the breakfast they’d served on the plane (oops). We stopped at a cute cafe called Costa.
I got a ham and cheese croissant and an iced soy latte. I don’t eat red meat on a normal basis, but it actually sounded really good and all the other pastries were sweet which didn’t sound good to me. The croissant was so good! I think I finished it in about 5 minutes because I was so hungry.
Later our first day I mentioned Monday that we ate at an Italian restaurant. We go to London and get Italian food. Makes sense I wasn’t very hungry since I had just had breakfast a few hours before, so I got a bowl of butternut squash soup.
It was pretty good, but after seeing everyone else’s pizza, I sort of regretted my decision
Fish and chips! It was surprisingly really good.
The next morning I had my favorite meal of the entire trip. We decided to eat at the same place where I had my fish & chips after seeing all the yummy pastries they had (I believe it was called Muriel’s Kitchen). When we went to be seated, the hostess asked us if we wanted to sit at the tables with the swings. Um, yes please!
One more picture from my breakfast because those swings were so cool.
I ordered a roasted squash salad. I figured I should get some vegetables in somewhere
After lunch it was time for the concert! We ate dinner at the O2 since they have a ton of restaurants and we all decided on pizza. I didn’t take any pictures but I did make sure to take a picture of our dessert
Hot fudge brownie sundae please. The line to for the Tube was so long since that’s how everyone got to the concert, so we decided to hang back and drown our
post concert depression selves in dessert until the line cleared up.
veggie plate for breakfast our last morning
panini and “chips” for lunch at the airport before our flight took off
All-in-all the food was pretty good in London. It’s really not all that different from America. Now where can I find one of those scones in the States…
