This post rounds up my food journal on my recent London trip.
I mentioned in the first post that this was neither a vacation nor a food trip. I did not plan on visiting any Michelin-star restaurants and we were contented to make some discoveries ourselves. I am grateful for some pointers on this site's Facebook page but apart from that, we were very much guided by our own senses - and our limited budget.
The Salad Pullover
It is strange to be excited about a bowl of green salad.
One afternoon, it was raining and not wanting to be cold and wet at the same time, we popped into a Spanish Tapa restaurant at Kensington. As we were not lunch hunting, we opted for something light: mixed green leafy salad and some cured hams.
A good green leafy salad needs this: Good fresh crunchy greens to begin with, a good vinaigrette and when tossed together, the greens should be lightly coated. You can taste the vinaigrette, but hardly notice it visually. In fact, cheese and nuts are optional if you have a good base to begin with.
