Food for (Serious) Thought.
I was just looking through my pictures from the last week or so and ran across this deliciousness; Marrakesh Tagine from Food for Thought:
It may not look as appetizing as it was, but take my word for it — delicious!
I’ve blogged about Food for Thought before, but this can serve as a reminder for anyone living in or visiting London. The place is absolutely delicious. There’s something to be said for hole-in-the-wall, homemade, healthy food. This time around, I hit up Covent Garden’s little gem for lunch with Steve during his last day in London. After the previous night’s oh-so-delicious (and gourmet) dinner of PB&J (a highly underrated dish), I thought FFT would be a good place to pump in some real food before he set off for Paris (click here to follow his backpacking excursion across Europe).
Everything on their menu is a winner and their desserts look heavenly! Plus, it’s in the heart of Covent Garden so it’s a perfect place to re-energize before getting some shopping in. Reminders: The place is cash only, so come prepared! Second, it doesn’t open until noon, so don’t plan on a veggie brunch because you’ll be sorely disappointed. If you get there a bit early (like we did), don’t be surprised if there are a few people outside queuing up. Like I said — it’s that good.
As a side note, Steve is backpacking across Europe in true twenty-something fashion with a 50-plus pound backpack/home on his back and a fanny-pack-cum-money belt around his waist. You can follow his journey via blog, photos and video at his site or stay up to speed and follow him on Twitter. (Personal plug: click here to follow me on Twitter)!
Honestly… could a girl ever do this? You gotta admire the mad packing skills.
Lots of love & happy (veg) eating,
