Dining in London

Although we have a short stay in London, we find time for several memorable meals.  We always look forward to a stay at the Renaissance Heathrow Hotel, both for the great views of one of Heathrow's runways and the fish and chips in the bar.  We arrive from Pisa and head right over for out treat.

The next day, during our stroll through London, we arrive at the Borough Market around lunchtime and, after viewing the fabulous selection of dining options available, we choose fish & chips at Fish!, named the best fish and chips shop in London.  We select a haddock and chips and a cod and chips and sit on a concrete bench along the Thames to dine.

Later that day, for dinner, we head over to an old favorite, the Cork & Bottle wine bar in Leicester Square.  We share baked camembert with confit garlic and olive oil, grilled octopus with pineapple and chili jam, and a bottle of the daily wine special.  Wow!

After this delightful meal, it's time to stroll over the the Leicester Square Tube station and catch the Underground back to Heathrow to spend the night and rise early for our return flight to San Francisco.
