It’s safe to say that we certainly traversed London yesterday. We started out in Notting Hill, at a fairly new cafe.
As you can see, they’ve made creative use of the previous occupant’s awning, which I love.
The menu is simple and mouth-wateringly enticing.
And then moved onto something more substantial.
Scrambled eggs and bacon for Alex.
Plus some hash browns to share. Because why not when they look this delicious?
We finished up with a refreshing and healthy cold-pressed juice.
The food was fantastic and it was such a lovely little cafe. If we lived in Notting Hill, we’d be there every weekend.
After that, where else but Portobello Road? Friday’s are the best day to go – all the market stalls are there but there are much less people to fight past.
I love Portobello Road. Yes, parts of it are touristy, but it has such a lovely feel about it and it’s the perfect place for a mooch.
After we’d exhausted West London, we headed East to our old home (and got a free sauna on the Central Line thrown in).
We walked through the Olympic Park and waved to our old flat.
We walked through Hackney Wick, through Victoria Park, and ended up here.
The East London Liquor Company opened just after we moved to Bath, so this was our first chance to visit. It’s a bar and distillery, and they serve a dizzying range of cocktails.
Alex tucked into something boozy and delicious, whilst I tucked into some olives and biltong. Because I was peckish.
They also sell a fantastic range of spirits. It would have been rude not to pick up a bottle of their own gin.
Then we hopped on the bus to Dalston, where we immediately spotted The Diner.
If you’ve read this blog before, you’ll know this is one of our favourite London places, mostly because of these.
Alcoholic milkshakes. They’re bloody excellent. So we had some.
Afterwards, we’d planned to spend the evening at Street Feast. But the weather had other ideas. It was chucking it down. So we ducked into a bar and regrouped.
We decided that it was not the evening for an outdoor food market. It was the evening for ordering food to our hotel room, chilling out and watching a film.
So that’s exactly what we did.
Deliveroo is an amazing app that lets you order food from actual restaurants, rather than takeaways. So we ordered a selection from Bone Daddies.
And then we ate it whilst trying not to spill it on the bed (I failed).
Then Alex nipped out and returned with these.
The perfect way to finish off the day.
