Back from London! (Day 3)

Another Big Breakfast but a BIG disppointment this time. 202 located along Nottinghill, was overpriced and the food was bad. My bacon and sausage were burnt and it was worst than the humble Carluccio’s that we went yesterday. W’s bagels and smoked salmon was so-so. It looked promising with ‘Timeout London’ writings, a crowded cafe and cool interiors. But I guess this is like our PS Cafe in Singapore where the food cannot justify its cost! Sigh.

Tom’s Deli (should have tried this instead!). Read reviews here and more pics here. Apparently Tom is Terence Conran’s son.

Portobello Street Market was packed with people on a Saturday morning! It was selling lots of antiques and vintage items. Dotted along the street were cafes to rest your feet. We chanced upon Hummingbird Bakery and was wondering what the fuss was about. CUPCAKES in creamy turquoise, pink, baby blues, pale yellow and chocolate sprinkled with colorful hearts and stars! So pretty! I got the ‘Red Velvet’ and it was lovely!

We met up with our friends at Paddington and made our way to Pearl Liang. Dim sum for lunch! I had been craving for dim sum and was delighted to find authentic food and soft egg tarts! Thank you guys for bringing us there!!!

After lunch, it was back to Oxford Street for W and me. It was crazy. Oxford Street was packed with people on a Saturday Weekend! After a nice chat over tea with QT and XH at Marks and Spencer’s Cafe, we parted. W and I made our way to St Martins in the Fields to meet J & G to catch Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. By the time the wonderful performance had ended at about 9pm, our tummies were growling and we ended up near our apartment for some award winning Lebanese Food at Alwaha Restaurant. We were fortunate to catch the last order for dinner. I was hungry and the food was so good that I forgot about taking pictures!
