Eating in London: 6 Places to Check Out

After three years apart, I finally traveled back to Europe for a two-week multi-country vacation. I’m still experiencing the post-vacation blues and figured the best way to cope was to share everything I ate, drank, and saw in each of the countries.

One of my favorite things to do when traveling is to experience the local cuisine. London’s food options didn’t disappoint, so I thought it best to kick off my vacation recap with details of what I indulged in. Enjoy!

1. The Green Man – Fitzrovia

Price £12.25 (~$15)

This past week, I greeted my 24th year with celebratory drinks, a new laptop, and as a new member of a blog club (yay for accountability!). It’s high time I got my butt in gear and revived this blog.

Without further ado, here is a snapshot of what my 23rd year entailed. I’m excited to see what these next 365 days will bring.
