Best Places to Eat in London
I recently went on a girls trip to London to visit my bestie, who’s practically a local Brit after living there for more than 5 years. You might think we spent most of the weekend gossiping between rails of clothes or in front of rows of mannequins dressed to perfection – but you’d be wrong as my bestie is as much a foodie as I am.
So instead, we caught up with each other’s lives over long brunchy-breakfasts, pit stops of glasses of wine and eclectic dinners in quirky eateries. And she really did go all the way with me. She shared her best kept secrets and I loved every minute.
Our first stop was at EggBreak – which is, as you may have guessed, a superb sweet little brunch place. I had a delicious sweet potato rosti with goats cheese, honey, pinenuts, dill yoghurt and poached eggs. The presentation is on point and you’ll enjoy eating it as much as looking at it. And while we were at it, we decided to indulge in cinnamon french toast to end the meal on a (very!) sweet note.
Needless to say, that was enough to leave us feeling full well beyond dinner time, so we just shared a bottle of Legaris over triple-fried sweet potato fries for dinner!
The next morning we rose with lunch along Hype Park and stopped for prosecco at Mews which is a street away from the hustle & bustle of central London. Late afternoon, we stopped at Cafe Royale for even more prosecco, downed with luscious and rich cheese fondue. These guys also have the must beautiful bathrooms!
To finish off my perfect weekend with my childhood sweetie pie, we enjoyed a long lunch at Potters Fields Park, a small public park in the London Borough of Southwark, in a restaurant called The Ivy Tower Bridge. I’m still dreaming about those deep fried zucchini spirals!
