VISITED: London Fun, Catch Ups and Camden


I love my weekends in London. 

I have the luxury of living nearby with fairly cheap rail fare and a number of friends that live there and are always up for doing something new!

A couple of weekends ago I spent Saturday and Sunday there with my fellow sass queen Emily (which will make more sense if you read this post) We went to Fare Healthy, a health food event located at Paradise by Way of Kensal Green. We had a great time and learned so much. I wrote about it here.


That evening we grabbed D and the three of us went to Burgers & Cocktails for, you guessed it, a burger and cocktails! 

I ended up with 'The American'  - a beef patty with American cheese, bacon, fried mushrooms and their house salsa - teamed with a side of sweet potato fries and a Cosmo Daisy (bombay gin, raspberry syrup, cranberry juice and lemon)

I can't say this is the best burger I've ever had (we'd been told it was a 45 minute wait for Meat Liquor and it was nearly 10pm at this point) but it's a fairly decent burger with reasonable prices. Warning: the staff are a little crazy though!


Sunday was another great day for food. Ems and I headed to The Riding House Cafe for breakfast - but you'll probably already know that (I let you in on their too-good-to-resist menu last week!)

After breakfast we were in DESPERATE need of a walk round - at this point we were both waddling after going a tad crazy with the breakfast menu.
 
I am a big lover of Camden - anywhere that's got a market where you can get a load of random things for decent prices is right up my street (just make sure you apply the same tactics you'd apply if you were bartering in Asia, or any other holiday destination where that kinda thing is acceptable - they won't rip you off then!)


As well as buying all sorts of things (that I probably didn't need but HAD to have!) we managed to see two of our friends that lived nearby. It was amazing to have a catch up after nearly two years - I lived with them in Sheffield and after going travelling and them moving to London, catch ups tend to be few and far between these days!

 
I always have a lot of fun when I see Emily but this one really topped the lot! Jam packed with food, funny tube journeys and constant chatter/giggling - I can't wait for the next weekend she joins me in the Capital!
