What does “Breakfast in Bread” mean, you might ask? Does this picture clarify things? Yes, that is a stuffed bread bowl. It’s from a place in London called The Barge House, and it’s literally called “breakfast in bread.” I got the vegetarian version, which is a sourdough bread bowl filled with slow-roasted tomatoes, spinach, leeks, mushrooms, avocado, asparagus, an egg, and cheese. As hard as it was to eat, it was absolutely delicious and one of my favorite dishes of London thus far.
What made the experience even better was that the restaurant was located right along a small river. It made for a great view, but the sidewalk next to it was so narrow that I was worried we would witness someone falling in.
I also made a trip to London Cat Village, which is a little playground for cats inside a cafe for humans. There were at least two dozen cats there, and I wish we had more time to play with them all.
I had a glass of orange juice which was flavored with turmeric, which gave it a totally unique flavor!
The only good picture I got of a cat was of this fellow before we even entered. They look mischievous and ready to escape!
I also popped into a place in my neighborhood called Lumberjack for breakfast. It’s a really cute and minimalistic cafe that seems perfect for getting work done.
I had avocado toast and a chai latte. The chai was the perfect balance of spicy and sweet, and the avocado toast was actually good! Flavorful avocado in London is a true accomplishment.
I also went to the Tate Modern to check in on my friend Mr. Yellow Triangle. He hadn’t moved from where I last saw him, so I’d say he’s doing well.
I also made a new friend, Ms. Robot. She fits right in the technology section!
The weather has gotten a bit cooler and crisper here, so I’ve been spending a lot more time indoors. However, I still love a good stroll, especially through one of my favorite places, Burgess Park.
One of the more exciting adventures I’ve had here in London involved Doughnut Time, a doughnut shop based in Australia opening their first store in the U.K. You know what that meant? Free doughnuts! I arrived forty minutes early and still had quite a few people in front of me.
As I made my way to the front, I saw all the doughnuts and had to quickly decide which one I would get. They all looked amazing so it was a very difficult decision.
I finally decided on the “Life on Mars,” which was topped with a milk chocolate glaze, caramel, and Mars candy bar pieces. I’m not sure if I’ve ever not finished a doughnut before in my life, but this one was so big and sugary that, alas, I only finished about seventy-five percent of it. Next time, I’ll go in on an empty stomach.
Ta-ta for now,
