So I am back from London where I have probably eaten some of the best food I have ever had, and that's saying something!
Below will follow a lot of pictures in random order with small descriptions of what it is and where I had it!
|First off. Dessert I made at home. Sliced banana with peanut butter between slices and then dipped in chocolate... Easy and not to unhealthy and fucking delicious!|
And then London!
|Started with American food at Bodeans BBQ near tower of London.|
Coleslaw, fries, chipotle mayo, babyback ribs and some burnt ends. Really moist and delicious!
|Our first breakfast, took the hotel buffet breakfast. And of course I made my plate a full English breakfast! :D|
Mondays evening meal we of course had to eat Indian. Which is suppose to be the best outside of India..
|First we got in some plate with thin crispy bread and 3 types of chutney and some onion sallad to eat with. Was really delicious!|
|Then we got our entree. It was a mixed platter with some lamb sausages, fried onion, vegetarian samosas and chicken tandoori... After this we where already full...|
This was probably my favorite meal during the entire trip. Never had food that tasted like this and it was just right in the spices and everything was so tender and good. The place was called Aladdin and was located on Brick Lane, a lot of Indian places there, shops and the likes. A real Indian quarter.
Second day we went to China Town and of course ate Chinese!
|Entree. Spring rolls, friend chicken, fried shrimp and some friend and seed encrusted bread. Very tasty and the sea weed in the middle was also fried and super crispy. My favorite on this plate!|
|For my main I went with crispy beef with chili. Was not very spicy but the tastes where right there and the crisp of the beef really gave the dish a nice texture.|
|My breakfast for the rest of the week... On our way to the office we stopped by different places each day and I always had their porridge with granola/berries/müsli and such. They make good porridge over there!|
Wednesday we whent to the "Hopp and Grapes" for some pub grub...
|Our small sharing platter... Sausage, bread, chili jam, olives, calamari, bread, creme fraiche and in the top left brie fondue...|
Was full after this and the sausage and the brie was particularly good!
|And then I had the mushroom and chicken pie...|
|The puff pastry on top was really flaky and perfekt and the sauce inside really tasted of mushrooms while the chicken was tender and juicy... I want more PIE!|
Thursday was street food day! They had a small square near the hotel with street food carts serving: Buffalo wings, friend chicken, Italian sandwiches, peruvian food and pulled pork/brisket..
|I of course went for the friend chicken sandwich with chipotle mayo, lettuce, pan fried jalapeno and some mustard.|
And my side was peas and sweet potato chili kind of...
Friday was our "going out night" and I had booked a table at "The old red cow"
|Never had a scotch egg before but I had seen it on TV many times... Was hoping it would be gooey in the middle...|
|FUCKING SUCCESS! Tasted really good and it was perfectly cooked on the inside!|
|My main: Burger with bone marrow, cheese, lettuce and bacon and homemade sauce on a brioche bun. Was probably one of the best burgers I have ever had..|
Saturday. Time to go home...
But first Borough Market!
So many good food to buy with me, cheese, bread, sausages, honey, cookies, spices, mustards and everything else you could imagine....
|And so many street vendors selling food... Went for the double Boston burger with blue cheese and fried onions.. they skimped a bit on the cheese though. Still very good and the patties were made out of sausage meet, still tasty!|
Wow I really ate a lot... Went for a few runs as well and managed to take this nice picture in Queen Victoria park (I think it was) one morning..
//Stay full my friends
