More catch up today. Few more days in London. Day 8 is more of a relax day, we had a simple yet delicious breakfast at Paul’s.
Yes, Paul’s again … I am in love with Paul’s pastry and coffee. My Apricot Pastry and Coffee from Paul’s, yes apricot again and love it again and again!
We actually took the afternoon and went to an Outlet Mall at Bicester Village. It was about 1 hour train ride from London Marylebone to Bicester North. Must go there, lots of designer shops and discount, and duty free! Sorry, I didn’t take any pictures … too busy window shopping 🙂
Next Day – we had to go to a business meeting in the morning. So just grabbed something simple and close at Costa – chocolate pastry and latte. Pastry not as good as Paul’s.
By the time we finished our meeting, it was around 3pm … we decided to take a look at Notting Hill – there was an outdoor market there with tons of people!! Very fun and interesting to look at!
We had a business dinner in the evening as well. It was at a steak restaurant called Gaucho. It was a very nice and beautiful restaurant, however the food was a bit disappointed.
Complimentary breads was a nice touch, bread was served warm.
Empanada Sampler with Beef, and Smoked Ham & Mozzarella. Very ordinary at £4.95 each!!
Rib Eye Steak with mushroom sauce, with shared sides of roasted sweet potato, grilled veggies, mash potato, and cream spinach. All sides were £4.95 each. Rib Eye Steak was £24.95 and £3.00 for the mushroom sauce.
I asked for medium-rare for my steak, but it came out almost like medium or well done! I was really disappointed for a high end steak house cook it like this. I couldn’t bother to ask them to re-cook, we have 12 people in our party, too much hassles. Just very disappointed.
Hazelnut and Rosemary Tart £8.50 – I can’t remember what it taste like … the blueberry compote was good.
Expensive but ordinary dinner, oh well – at least we had fun chatting.
