london: food

overall, we were mostly unimpressed with london food. ed, lindsey and ryan all thought many of their meals were just plain gross. i think i ordered a little better for my tastes because i actually enjoyed most of what i got. but...it was nothing to write home about. we did enjoy the sweets, though. linds was our official food and candy photographer and i just laughed with the amount of sweets she purchased at every stop. living it up for sure. :) it was worth it just to see how happy she was every time we were successful in finding something sweet to eat as witnessed here with her coconut gelato. 

london seems to be more of a quantity over quality place - with the exception of the maze grill where we ate on our last night. it's one of gordon ramsey's restaurants and it was deeeeeeeeeeelicious. we had a great server who was a bit on edge because gordon himself was coming in to eat that night {we missed him by minutes!}. our server also gave us a great tour of the kitchen and how it's all done. so fun!

and the sweet...

I promise I will not correct everything :) BUT I actually liked most of my food too. Just the pub stuff was average. :) And the gelato was coconut!! I KNOW my desserts- as you know! This post is making me hungry...

maren, why do you just make me laugh?! You're so dang cute. The waffles and crepes look delish! Mike tried turkish delight when he lived in England and said it's super gross.
