London Food Article
Warning, this post and the article it links to contain no beer. Here is an article by Mark Bittman of The New York Times on restaurants in London. My first trip to London was in the early 1990s and my experience then confirms Bittman's implication that twenty-five years ago food was bad in London. My memories were potato jackets - some kind of stuffed baked potatoes - and take-away tomato and mozzarella sandwiches, neither culinary standouts. I shattered the old myth that to get good food in London you had to eat ethnic, as I had horrible Indian and bad Italian meals. London is now a food destination. I was in London for over a week this summer and never had a bad meal, and I ate British food, ethnic food, and all points in between. I'll be posting more on my trip, but wanted to point out Bittman's article.
