WHAT I ATE IN LONDON: OCTOBER 2016

I have just returned home from a quick, yet very busy weekend in London with two of my best friends (we saw Justin Bieber, he was amazing… blog post to come) and here are some of the places we ate at!

As we arrived quite late on Friday, we wanted to search for somewhere near by to eat and drink. We stayed at the My Apartments in Piccadilly Circus and if you’re looking for somewhere to stay in London which is very central… these are the perfect apartments. As soon as we stepped out the apartment doors, we were basically on the street that connects Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square. However, if you’re wanting to actually sleep at night I would not recommend this location as you can imagine the noise outside never stops…

Just a few minutes walk away was Covent Garden where we found Jamie’s Union Jacks. This restaurant was situated in Covent Garden’s Market Building and is basically a new dining concept created by Jamie Oliver and pizza expert Chris Bianco.

The restaurant had a very rustic feel and an amazing atmosphere due to it’s prime location.

We were swiftly served our Covent Garden cocktails which contained gin, elderflower liqueur, apple and lemon juice…

I then went on to have the rump steak (I cannot even begin to explain how hungry I was) and it was lovely!

After we demolished the food at Jamie’s really quickly we then went to L’ATELIER de Joel Robuchon (sounds fancy, I know…) to see what the rooftop bar was like.

It was very dark so the photo’s didn’t come out that well and do the place justice! It was lovely. We ended up getting dessert here followed by some cocktails.

I think these pictures speak for themselves… amazing! (But as you can imagine, very pricey).

The next day we went shopping and when we got to Carnaby Street (check out my Carnaby Street blog post from summer here!) we stopped at Kingly Court for some lunch. The restaurant was called Whyte & Brown which was a free range chicken restaurant!

Was so cute sitting in the courtyard and thankfully the weather was nice! I went for the chicken goujon starter with fries (if there is ever goujons on a menu, I just have to have them…) and it was sooooooo good, highly recommend this spot for a light lunch!

Later on that day we were tight for time before Justin Bieber so we just ended up ordering in a Dominos to the apartment… can’t go wrong with some pizza.

After a very long and drunken night, the next day we fueled up at Shake Shack in Covent Garden.

As expected, it was unreal. Shake Shack, please come to Aberdeen quick and fast, thank you.

I love London so much and I hope to go back soon and try out more yummy spots to eat. Please leave your recommendations below if you have any!

Thank you for reading! 

It’s a Jess Thing
