Eating my way through London – Wanderlust @44

“Blessed are the curious for they shall have adventures.” – Lovelle Drachman

Stayed in London for about two weeks which gave me a chance to explore the main city. So much different multicultural food experience here in London, I hope you can explore it with me!

This building is known as the “walkie talkie” because of its unusual shape. Lunch was on the 37th floor at Sky Garden’s signature restaurant – Fenchurch. Breathtaking bird’s eyeview of the city of London as well as a glass dome with exquisite gardens. Can’t resist taking photos, as all the other people were doing the same thing anyway!

Delicious and gorgeous looking menu at the Fenchurch Restaurant. As you can see below, some Starters and some Mains. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Lunch at the Highbury Barn Tavern Pub. I don’t know if food was good or I was just so hungry and tired that day. I found the chicken salad so tasty, though! ⭐️⭐️⭐️

East Street Restaurant in 2-5 Rathbone Place, London. It has brightly coloured furniture, old cartoons projected on the wall, colourful plates, illuminated signs…it seems like you were not in London, but in an Asian country! Food was fantastic, so full of Asian taste in the heart of London. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Franco Manca for dinner in Chiswick, London. Serves authentic Italian sourdough pizza made with organic ingredients and a hand-built wood-burning oven. OMG it was so good! The pizza was very affordable (thinking conversion of Pounds to Aus$), and it is also very hearty, that I couldn’t finish my order of pizza!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Had dinner at the Mestizo Restaurant & Tequila Bar, serving authentic Mexican cuisine. Service was a bit slow because restaurant was quite full that night. But it was worth it. Yummy dinner with the whole family. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I was warned that I had to go to the cafe early because for sure there will be a long queue. True to that, there was really lots of hungry people waiting outside. But in fairness, it didn’t take that long and we were seated. Well, Sunday at Barnsbury didn’t disappoint. Coffee was perfect (well, that’s a big thing coming from somebody from Melbourne 😉 who loves their coffee), brunch was perfect, even the dessert take away was perfect. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“Pretty in pink and very instagrammable” cafe, that is how I can describe the Elan Cafe in Oxford Circus. The owners know how to present themselves beautifully, with all the pink flowers indoors, as well as a basketfull of pink flowers outside the cafe. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Romulo Cafe in Kensington, London. This is a taste of Philippine cuisine presented as fine dining. I enjoyed what I ordered here and having been away from the Philippines for a few years, this was such a homey feeling! And to complete our dining experience, an order of the ever famous Halo Halo! ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Coffee at Bienvenue, London. And as it says on their wall “Belgian Hand Warmer- wrap your hand around a bowl of organic coffee and let the warmth seep in.” The cup of coffee here is humongous as you can see. The problem was, I think the one who was serving was a newbie so our order kept on stuffing up. Well anyway, got it in the end. ⭐️⭐️

Enjoyed the coffee at Long & Short Roastery in London, amidst the vintage market in Bricklane, Shoreditch. What a surprise… my fave Portuguese Tart 👏👏👏 and because it was near the Brick Lane area… discovered some artwork!!! Uhhhhmmmm Portuguese tart and coffee perfect combination! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Lunchtime treat at The Famous Cock pub in 259 Upper St. London. Half a pizza with own pizza cutter! Just an ordinary place but my daughter and I wanted something light and affordable for lunch in this area. ⭐️⭐️

On our last day in London, my son brought us to this place with the best Cheese Toastie. This is the best at Pistachio & Pickle. I tasted the Classic and the Chili Jam. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Any suggestions for brunch, lunch or dinner in London?

        UK’s exposure to more European fare is a plus. However, I miss some of the old London shops. There’s a loss of history and character.
