Food, Glorious Food!

As a follow up to my post about drinks, Mum will be aiding me to post about the Food!  I’d like to thank the Musical, Oliver for inspiring this post title.

Mum’s recommendations:

Category 1: Places we forgot to take photos at but loved

– Yauatcha, Japanese, Dim Sum

We loved the Jasmine Ribs, Edamame Truffle Dumplings, Wagu Beef Puff and Lotus Leaf Sticky Rice

-Cork and Bottle, Underground Old Pub

Amazing Burrata plate, Couscous, & Shepards Pie

-Bocca di Lupo, Legit Italian style

We loved the Seabream Carpaccio, tortiglioni pasta and housemade sausages

 

Category 2: Excellent and we took Photos

-The Abbingdon Pub, Modern Gastropub

Simply the BEST STICKY TOFFEE PUDDING EVER. Everything else was great!

-Nopi, Yotam Ottelenghi’s place

We got to sit at the bar and it was super fun.  Our server/ bartender Patrick was very sweet.

-Gail’s Kitchen, Modern English Tapas

Really loved the warm cookies and milk, Sticky Chicken and Squid with labneh

-Addis, Ethiopian

The waitress recommended the dishes so neither of us quite remember which was which.

Category 3: Tea Time!

The Savoy Hotel

So, Mum and Dad have always wanted to do Afternoon Tea here. It’s kind of a big deal from Mum, the Barber’s daughter, Dad, the Prison Guards son, to enter this bastion of wealth and class and not be kicked out, or whatever. Take that capitalism!

Liberty of London Cafe

Liberte’ of London!!!  Love everything there including the Tea Room.  They had a few lovely desserts/puddings to have with tea… or flowery and fizzy juice drinks or champagne cocktails or even a Perrier et Jouet Afternoon Tea.  We made do with tea, champagne cocktails, rhubarb and raspberry napoleon, toast with jam and lemon tart.
