Bacon, fried eggs, grilled tomatoes, fried mushrooms, fried toast with butter, sausages, and baked beans. Yummy in my tummy!

Insanely delicious and super filling.The dish was fantastic, though a bit salty, but definitely not overpowering. The pork, broth, noodles, eggs, everything was cooked to perfection.

Fish & Chips @ Taylor Walker

Stumbling into Taylor Walker fulfilled 2 things on my agenda. First was to experience an authentic British pub with a good selection of beers and secondly to try a plate of traditional fish and chips! Success!!!

Macaroons @ Laduree

The macaroon flavors are endless- my favorite is the pistachio!

Chicken Tikka Masala @ Punjab Indian

A friend recommended that it’s a MUST to try Indian food while in London. I have to admit, I was beyond confused when he suggested this. I did not realize that England’s Indian food was so highly regarded! So thanks to Yelp, we came across Punjab for dinner and had not only a great experience but some phenomenal Indian food. We started out with garlic naan and for our main course we shared chicken tikka masala and the butter chicken. All the dishes had their own unique flavor, spice, and aroma and all were very satisfying!

Terrarium Matcha Tiramisu @ Oliver Maki

This Tiramisu “pot” is filled with green Matcha cream to create the “moss” covering and chocolate chunks to make the “rocks”. So whatever you do, don’t water this terrarium – unless you want to ruin a totally delectable dessert. We also ordered the Coconut Surprise which is a perfect harmony of coconut sorbet and passionfruit “surprise” with an almond flake wafer!

Beef Pho @ The Little Viet Kitchen

Thanks to my friend Patti – I have found the most wonderful Vietnamese restaurant! Hidden away in Islington, a tiny chef called Thuy cooks up the most delicious soups, noodles, pho and nibbles, in a tiny kitchen. So excited when I bump into her during the Chapel Street Market. We started with the Viet fried spring rolls which were divine! For our main entree we ordered the Belly Pork w/rice&egg which was sooooo delish! And a bowl of the famous pho, with beef and bone marrow in the middle. Hot, steaming broth, succulent slices of beef, fresh greens and oodles of noodles. Truly, truly glorious on a chilly afternoon in London!
