PARIS to LONDON – DAY 7, 8

Good by Paris, Hello London! This London trip is partly work, so I didn’t visit many tourist attraction. I am going to combine some days together.

Of course we took EuroStar, a very nice and comfortable 2.5 hour train ride.  It was 4pm when we got back to the hotel, so rest a little and went to a local recommend Fish and Chips place.

The Britannia in Kingsington – the front was actually a bar, in the back was the dinning restaurant. We had a absolutely fun waiter, I really enjoyed his jokes!

Fish & Chips – very good fish and chips, light and crispy batter, juicy and flaky haddock. The chips were hot and crispy!

My co-worker ordered the Bangers & Mash, looks good too.

After the meeting, we went shop around on Kings street and had lunch at Manicomio – Poco Cafe. This is a very little restaurant, pretty packed during lunch time.

We had a group dinner at The Britannia again tonight. I just had Smoked haddock kedgeree and poached duck egg – it was a little heavy to my liking, but not bad.
