Missing London already!
Officially my favorite tea parlour! The service here was exceptional, and our waiter was so knowledgeable in all things tea and London culture. There were so much food (they also gave us extra) that we had to pack some up and bring it back to the hotel. The jams and the clotted cream was so creamy and lovely, wish I was able to bring some back to the States! Dreaming of this currently...

If we were to stay in London a bit longer, perhaps another week, we would've been able to try every vendor in Borough Park (and all the other great food markets!). Our last meal in London was quite filling and savory.

Everything about this restaurant was just so full of life! It was a fun time, all while trying "one of the best Fish & Chips" in London. The haddock was definitely better than the cod.

This restaurant was recommended by all my friends who have visited London. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find time slots available for brunch (a life changer menu supposedly), but regardless really loved an early dinner here. After this meal at Dishoom, my boyfriend and I have came to a conclusion that nothing in New York had tasted as good as this. Everything was so perfect, from the food to the service to the vibe / atmosphere of the restaurant. It is definitely our favorite Indian restaurant in London! Really hoping to find a great Indian restaurant as good as this in New York (our so-far-favorite in New York is Mughlai and Drunken Munkey in the Upper East Side).

The most interesting type of breakfast I have ever tried is the real English Breakfast from Regency Cafe. It includes a Set Breakfast where you get one egg, two bacons + sausage, with either beans or tomatoes and a side of bread or toast. Oh and of course, the set includes either a coffee or tea too. You can add extras like Black Pudding, Bubble & Squeak or Hash Browns. While my boyfriend has thoroughly enjoyed it, I on the other hand hadn't, except the fries and hash browns.
My boyfriend and I decided to visit this place after seeing an episode on Buzzfeed's Worth It, UK Edition. We were also interested because they held a Michelin Star. We enjoyed the scallops and the duck because they were both tender, savory, and flavorful. As for the Lobster Biryani, it was unfortunately a bit greasy, chewy, and tough. Overall, we loved the contemporary twist on all the typical Indian dishes.
