These days, thanks to the global coronavirus pandemic, we are stuck at home. As I go stir crazy, I decided that it might be nice to go down memory lane and look back at some of our travels. 2018 was a BIG year! Both my husband and I finished grad school and we decided to splurge on a much-needed vacation. So off to London we went! When in London, there are few things one must partake in. First, is the traditional “pub fare”. I had to have mushy peas with fish and chips. My husband opted for the heartier steak and ale pie. Both were delicious!!! In fact, since our trip to London, meat pies have become a staple in our winter menu.
Another classic experience that I highly recommend is the proper English Afternoon Tea. We took advantage of every single opportunity to have “tea”. For a more relaxed experience, I would recommend tea at Harrods. For a more formal (over-priced, but totally worth it) experience, go to the Ritz-Carlton. As always, our travels have inspired our everyday “tea” drinking.
Finally, a romantic dinner. Our first night in London, we went out to eat at Hutong a glamourous Asian restaurant on the 33rd floor of the Shard . I still dream of the Lotus leaf beef and the dumplings!!
