Tempus fugit gains truism as time passes us by, and I have been guilty of not writing for quite some time. There are myriad reasons, but then it's always easy to find excuses. I apologise - I have none.
Recently Valda and I took two weeks and a coupe of days to visit our daughter, Maxine in the UK, and have a week in Israel. This was a culinary adventure that helped re-balance our perceptions and expectations.
Our first meal was at Momo, and was great.
Elegant Moroccan food in the heart of London, great service and reasonably priced ! http://momoresto.com/restaurant/london/momo/restaurant/
Next stop, Dominiqe Ansell for breakfast !
Food, service and ambience all top notch http://dominiqueansellondon.com/
We spent the day around the markets - so many pictures to choose from !
Dinner ended up at an American restaurant called Dirty Bones at Carnaby Street.
Great meal - top quality food - reasonably priced.
No visit to London would be complete without Borough Market http://boroughmarket.org.uk/
Lunch at Social Tapas. We had eaten at Social on Pollen previously, so there was a certain expectation.
The food was well plated, but there was about as much love as a MacDonald's Cheeseburger. Fine winelist. Very expensive for a poor experience. Sorry Jason Atherton, this one was a fail for us. http://www.socialwineandtapas.com/
And so ended our few days in London. Off to Maidenhead to see Maxine and prepare for our dinner at The Fat Duck.
