Another day in paradise.

Hi!

I'm planning to comb through the thread soon, but I thought I'd just go ahead and post.

We're going to be in town from the 29th through the 6th and we're wondering if there's anything Christmas-oriented were should try to catch while we're in town.


This will be our second trip, and I don't totally remember where we ate, although I could probably work it out. I do remember not really being impressed by Hawksmoor, so I'm wondering if maybe I picked a bad one or did something wrong? I had steak IIRC.

Another place that only sold food made of stuff native to Britain went out of business. They were pretty tasty.

Flat Iron was one I liked.

If you had a bad time at Hawksmoor, it was almost certainly a one off. The one time I had a bad steak there, I told the waiter, and it was whisked away, and replaced with a new one not long after, and we got our drinks for free.

If youíve got time on the 2nd, Iíd recommend trying their Sunday roast. Itís very reasonable, and very good. Also, Yorkshire pudding the size of your head.

As for Christmassy stuff... avoid Winter Wonderland, go to the Christmas market on South Bank, by the Royal Festival Hall.

I liked the hawksmoor Sunday roast a lot more than the regular steaks. The regular ones are not bad but the style is not for me. I went to a few steak houses across UK and they are alright but not spectacular. The Sunday roasts in hawksmoor do deliver and the Yorkshire pudding is good.

Regency cafe is good for breakfast. Cheap no thrills good black puddings.

Claireridges make drat good sandwiches and tea but itís expensive. Sandwiches are unlimited refill which I didnít know and regret not having more.

Savoy is fancy pants dining but I was too underdressed, oh well. The beef Wellington isnít too great for the price and decor. Try else where

I realized I went to 2 of Gordon Ramsayís properties but heís actually a decent celebrity chef for a change
