VISITED: London - A Weekend of Theatre and LOTS of Food


Weekends in London really are the best way to spend weekends. I love exploring the side streets, trying new restaurants, wandering the parks and generally feeling like a temporary Londoner for a couple of days. Last weekend was no different.

I didn't end up heading down until the afternoon but had a few hours to kill before my friend was back at home so I went out in search of one thing, and one thing only...


Lobster rolls at Smack Lobster. I had been DYING to try these and they did not disappoint. I'll be doing a little post about them next week, so stay tuned for that.

This weekend was my Christmas present weekend. I WAS SO EXCITED and it was SO. MUCH. FUN!

I got tickets to see the musical I had been desperate to see for so long...



It truly was amazing...to the point that I was almost in tears when Defying Gravity was sung. I felt every word of it. Cringeworthy but true! I got so wrapped up in it! PLEASE go and see it if you get chance!

After that, the Christmas presents did not end...


A late night trip to Honest (we arrived 20 minutes before closing and they were lovely enough to still serve us!) The food at Honest really is delicious and, those chips! Oh boyyyy!

The following day meant more food, of course...


I had never been to The Breakfast Club (I know, what the hell have I been doing for my life!?)


We didn't have to wait too long, so I took a quick snap and we were seated to our table...


Those of you that have been to The Breakfast Club will know the menu is CRAZY?! Those that haven't, well, you can see below. Seriously, how are us food bloggers meant to make a decision with THIS MANY CHOICES?! It was very tricky...


But I decided on Eggs Florentine...


And a side of fruit...


And it was a full English for D...


I can honestly say that this is THE BEST Eggs Florentine I've EVER had...


The hollandaise was absolutely beautiful, the eggs were poached to perfection...definitely recommended!

We had a little wander around a few shops before I hopped on the train, with enough time to spare to grab a hot chocolate...soy with hazelnut and marshmallows, naturally!


What a weekend! So much food, so much fun!

And a beautiful train journey home...
