Hey friends! I know I said I would post on Sunday but yesterday was Easter and I didn’t get home until HELLA late so here we are.
My first stop in the beautiful city of London was Lebanese food (of course) and London did not let me down!
*Don’t mind my friend Jordan’s hands. We ordered hummus, falafel, grape leaves, and pita. It was so delicious and exactly what I needed after a flight from Prague to Heathrow.
We also ordered some chicken and lamb shwerma but we scarfed that down way to quickly to snap a picture.
Next stop was this ADORABLE food market on the South Bank of London where we had some amazing Pad Thai, and you could basically see all of London from the river bank. It was beautiful.
Tell me that doesn’t look incredible!? I ordered the Pad Thai combo, which included chicken, shrimp, and tofu. It only cost around 7 pounds and was so delicious that I am currently thinking about when I can get it again.
Here’s a cheesy picture of me at Buckingham Palace in front of the huge fountain with a statue of Queen Victoria looking menacingly at her subjects.
*sorry the picture quality is so bad, my iPhone is currently going through some sort of mid-life crisis and the whole camera situation is just not happening.
The next day we went to get indian food. I knew indian food was incredible in London so I was SUPER excited to hit up some delicious naan and butter chicken. London did not disappoint.
I am low-key developing a deep love of indian food and getting pretty sad that there is no good indian food back in Connecticut. 😦
Then we went to Harrods and most likely saw a Saudi Arabian princess because she had a FULL security detail and everything. It also pretty much looked like Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory:
The next day my bff/tour guide/hostess with the most-ess Jordan took me to the incredible place that is Nando’s
Although we ended up breaking one of the sauce bottles and will probably never be allowed back there again, it was SO worth it. I ordered the butterfly chicken burger with a side of fries. We also ordered wings, it was just a great time all the way around. The US needs WAY more of these.
Here’s a picture of the Tower Bridge!
*fun fact: this isn’t the London Bridge, like most people think. This is called the “Tower Bridge” and I took this picture from the real deal London Bridge.
** This picture was also taken about an hour before a hardcore rainstorm. Gotta love English weather!
This morning was probably the best food (of my life) on the trip. We did a full scale afternoon tea and not only was it the cutest thing ever, but it was the TASTIEST thing ever
I honestly don’t even know where to start. There were quiches, macaroons, cucumber sandwiches, everything you could ever want and more. I straight up felt like Eloise. I ordered this delicious fruit tea with strawberries, cherry, black currant, and a bunch of other berry-type fruits. I had two whole pots of tea. It was worth every bite. UGH I’m bringing afternoon tea back to the states if it kills me.
And that was London!! Tomorrow I embark on my trip to Sicily, which I cannot wait for. It is currently 70 degrees there and I am going to get one hell of a tan!
Thanks for being patient with me during my midterms, and see ya next week!!!!!!
