We also tried Sardine bruscetta. Not bad...doubt I'd have it again but it's good to try different things. My only experience of sardines was when I had to put a can of sardines into the feeding dish of Daisy, the Newfoundland dog I took care of way back when....not an easy thing to do at 6 am. (gag)
I do love my meat pies - and veggies. I believe this was a chicken and mushroom pie. Hint: lunch or dinner at the Cafe in the Crypt in St Martins in the Fields (opposite Trafalgar Square) is always a good idea. Very reasonable fare for central London and it's home made and good.
A meal cooked in a traditional home in Cappadocia - some kind of leek strudel which was delicious, rice and beans. We had soup as a starter. It was all delicious.
Kebob in Bursa, Turkey - yes it may look disgusting but boy oh boy it sure didn't taste disgusting. Yum!
A loaf of the gorgeous Turkish bread - all hot and puffy and once you cut it...whoosh..down it goes but oh so tasty...
A last farewell to the Republic of Ireland....a huge Irish breakfast with black and white pudding on my last morning to tide me over on the three hour journey up to Belfast......I've had better....
A cream and jam filled scone with tea at the lovely cafe in the Titanic exhibition in Belfast. The little banner is the logo for the White Star Line which was the company that owned the Titanic. If you are in Belfast a visit to this fantastic exhibition is a must!! Every detail from the first "idea" to where the victims' bodies were buried is covered.
Momos at Momo House in Wembley. London has so many wonderful Indian & Asian restaurants....
A unique breakfast at Maria's in Borough Market - chips, mushrooms and bubble & squeak. (fried up left over vegetables) Living in airbnb rentals meants I didn't have too many cooked breakfasts - muesli and yogurt was the usual start to my day but once in a while I had to go to a local greasy spoon cafe and have a "fryup".
A margarita pizza at Franco Manca - at the original location in Brixton Market. (another tick off the bucket list) Franco Manca is a small London pizza chain. Sourdough crust...oh my my...I am drooling just looking at this. I also tried the Balham location while on this holiday and on a previous trip the Chiswick location. All good..SO good!
I eat a lot of Skyr when I visit Iceland...for breakfast or as a dessert. It is similar to yogurt but much creamier and delicious. It has been a part of Icelandic culture for over 1,000 years. Of course now there are many flavours with blueberry being one of the most popular but I am working my way through the selection!
And last but not least..Christmas dinner at St Martins in the Fields' Cafe in the Crypt. Roast potatoes, cabbage, carrots, parsnips, mashed potato, turkey and chipolata sausages wrapped in bacon. Could have lived without the sausages but oh well they are part of the English Christmas dinner. This is served throughout the month of December.
