Partly for my birthday and partly just for a girlie day out, my sister, Mum and I went to London. As I said in a previous post, I wanted to go to have a burrito which was initially the reason I wanted to go to London. I thought if we were going for a foodie trip, we might as well go all out and go to Borough Market too. Both my sister and Mum have been before but I have never been a massive fan of London so have avoided it. This trip completely changed my mind – London isn’t just Oxford Street and theaters which is what I had previously thought of it. Borough Market was fantastic, the smells were amazing, the displays were beautiful and most importantly the food was delicious.
We also went to a cake shop which I had heard about through twitter – Konditor & Cook and had a very tasty gluten free mount hazelnut cake. This goes to show how Twitter is a great way to find places of interest and like minded food lovers.
We went to a restaurant called Benitos hat which I really liked. I had their special pork belly burrito which was very tasty. The menu wasn’t big or fancy, but it was exactly what I was looking for as I got to pick what went in my burrito. I would definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a quick, tasty burrito.
As soon as I got home, I was asking Rien when we could go again. My thinking was surely he won’t mind shopping if it’s for food? If I lived in London, I would find it very hard to stay away!
