Paris -> London

Checked out of our hotel in Paris this morning...
and walked down St. Germaine to Le Pre...
very lovely bistro...
another version of Avocado Toast that was reliably delicious (ate all the Salad as well)...
tres francaise...
an accurate poster about the food in France...
departed on the Eurostar from Gare Du Nord...
arrived in St. Pancras at 11:30 and our hotel room wasnt ready...
so we went to Portobello Market...
it was a mob scene...
live musicians every block..
produce markets...
flower vendors...
tons of antiques...
stuff you never knew you needed...
cool fashions...
and food...
Bruschetta...
Juices...
Indian..
we didnt have enough pounds to buy food from the vendors, so we stumbled upon Market Thai...
my Tofu with Cashew Nuts was a nice and light meal...
more strolling brought upon Legendary Fries...
got rid of our last pounds on a small order of Fries. They lived up to their name...
finally got back to the hotel.It was kinda sterile and corporate, not really my style, but the location was convenient...
we ordered delivery of Mildred's...
their Fries were lackluster, but the Basil Mayo that came with them was awesome. So that was the trip, I accomplished pretty much everything I set out to do, flying home tomorrow. Appreciate all who looked. Bye for now.

  1. The market scene gives me serious anxiety, what a crowd! I need the girl on the lobster, and you're right I never knew I needed something like that!
    Those legendary fries look AMAZING! The second batch of fries look pretty good to though. I like chubby fries!
    I for one really enjoyed this vacation!

    1. The crowd at Portobello Market was a totally different mind set. Cant go there unless you are willing to be bumped and blocked and just plain irritated.

  2. Wow, that market is beautiful but I'm with Vegan Peace, it was so crowded I feel anxious just looking at it! I'm glad I could experience it through your pictures though! It looked like a full on festival!

    That tofu with cashew nut dish and the legendary fries look seriously amazing. You have found such delicious meals! Thank you so much for diligently photographing all of it for us! I really enjoyed living vicariously through you!

    Welcome home! I hope you are getting some rest and lots of quality fur baby snuggle time :)

    1. Thanks, it is a relief to have all my babies back in their routine. Dont know how people just up and leave their families to go on vacation. Takes so much trust.
