Cafe Churchill

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

It was a cold, rainy London morning in September when we decided to take a walk through the touristy area. When we got towards Westminster Abbey, I realized how hungry I was — and there wasn’t much food options nearby. So, we walked towards the Parliament buildings, we found Cafe Churchill where we quickly popped […]

Option’s Belgian Choc

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

I love hot chocolate and one of my all time favourites would be the Belgian Choc by Options. The first time I tried this hot chocolate was back in 2005 when I visited England and I loved it. I can’t find it anywhere in Calgary, and I’m always looking. When I got to England this […]

Belgo Centraal London

Monday, January 9th, 2012

My sister really wanted to introduce Belgo Centraal to us in London at Covent Garden, so we all went to eat an early dinner there – which they called Express Lunch. The express lunch was available daily 12-5pm and for £7.95 it came with a choice of Belgo Pils, a glass of house wine or […]

Comfort Hotel – Heathrow Airport

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

We’ve been late for a flight leaving England before, and that was the only flight we’ve ever missed. So now, if possible, we’ll try to be closest to the airport the night before, as we’re paranoid of missing an international flight, and we don’t fly on independent airlines or anything like that – that doesn’t […]

Days Hotel London – Waterloo

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

During our stay in London, we stayed in a small hotel called Days Hotel London – Waterloo which didn’t matter as we were only there for the bed – for a few hours! We were actually expecting the room to look more like a cabin on a cruise ship, so when we checked-in, the hotel […]

Fernandez & Wells

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

While we were in London, we really wanted lunch, and had absolutely no idea what we were wanting to eat – but knowing we had to eat! We just happen to be walking down Lexington Street, and we saw 3 cured legs at the window, and we knew this was the place where we wanted […]

Giraffe – Waterloo London

Monday, November 28th, 2011

During our trip to England, we had to visit London. Our first night in London, we met up with my cousin there and she brought us to Giraffe which was located on the Southbank near Waterloo. It was a beautiful location as it was right off the river, and a great place to stop in […]

Holiday Inn Kenilworth

Friday, November 18th, 2011

We went to England for my sisters wedding in September 2011, and it was lovely. It was held at the Kenilworth Castle which was a beautiful location. The entire city of Kenilworth in Warwichshire was really lovely. It seemed like an up-scale small town. We flew into Birmingham Airport as it was the closet airport […]

Harringtons on the Hill

Monday, October 17th, 2011

What a fabulous place, Harringtons on the Hill provided wonderful food for a wedding banquet. The quality of food was top-notch, and the location was really rustic and warm. I was fortunate to try Harringtons with a fantastic special menu. The appetizer that I had was Scallops with Chorizo salad. The scallops was really tender […]

Muffin Man

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

We stopped by The Muffin Man as a quick stop for breakfast one morning before heading over to Buckingham Palace and stand in line for the touristy attractions we were planning for the day. The Muffin Man was a great little stop, even though it wasn’t a fast stop. We made an order right from […]
