Walk-a-bouts in London

We spent 10 days in London and we made the best of them.

Despite rainy days on and off, we left Ed’s flat with a mission each morning.

We’ve sampled English and Irish classic cuisine, both esteemed for their respective, belly-warming qualities. After much consideration and discussion (and consumption), we’ve decided to rank our top 5 meals, to date.

Let the countdown begin… Continue reading…
