Every year at the beginning of August, me and my mother head to London for a few nights away (the real reason is for a hospital visit but, it's an excuse to shop and eat!) and it's fantastic! Usually we spend most of the time eating/ planning what to eat! This year was no exception!
Amyloidosis Centre at UCL. At this point I should mention, I have a very rare illness so every year we have to go and visit my specialist in London and this year I was put onto daily subcutaneous injections, which suck... but I won't let it get me down! :)
So, after our hospital visit we decided to head into central London for some lunch. After seeing / hearing such good things about Shake Shack in Covent Garden, we decided to try it! We ordered two smoke shack burgers, fries, a glass of wine and one of their own lemonades. The meal came to just over £20, which wasn't too bad at all! The burgers were really good quality and fresh with really tasty toppings. The best thing about the meal, I think, were the fries! They were sooooo good! I'm usually a skinny fry kind of girl but, these were gorgeous! Really crispy on the outside and fluffy in the middle! I had heard that we could be up for a long wait for our burgers but we must have caught it on a good day. We went on a Thursday at about 12 and only had to wait about 15 minutes all together! Definitely worth the wait!
The Bodyguard musical. Once again I was very bad and didn't take a single picture! The show was good, not the best I've seen but was a great way the spend an evening!
Afterwards we were absolutely starving so we headed back out to find some good food! To our surprise, we found that Wahaca was still open so we headed there!
Wahaca! We ordered the Wahaca selection which was £19.95. In the selection you get, 3 pork pibil tacos, 1 large broad bean quesadilla, 3 chicken tinga tacos, 2 black bean tostadas, 2 new potato taquitos and Wahaca slaw. With this, we also ordered grilled corn, salsa and guacamole. To drink, I had a hibiscus mojito and my mutti had a Wahaca Mule. I cannot fault any part of our meal. Honestly. Even at 11 o'clock our food was freshly cooked, came to our table within minutes of ordering and was so tasty. The only part I didn't like was the tostada as I'm not keen on coriander but that was just personal preference. The total for the whole meal was roughly £40 which I think is absolutely great value! The atmosphere in the restaurant was really good too! It's a really great place to visit in London if you love your Mexican food.
I'll leave the post here for now, I still have lots of London stuff to blog about but I'll save it for another day!
Thanks for reading!
