Tag Archives: London
To be honest I don’t really know if I do or not. I hate certain aspects of London, like the number of people who just get in your way all the time”eyes rolling” specially Arabs with “agendas”. I hate the every year raising number of money biggers flying around the shopping stores, waiting for their next victim. But then I remembered the great sights, weather, memories & FOOD in London.
Who could resist London’s FOOD!
What about being in a world of CHOCOLATE!
I have to be certain …. i think i missed you LONDON!
Declaimer : i know this post had diverted from it’s original idea due to me being FASTING “i can’t believe it’s 11th Ramadan already!”. But who in earth don’t like FOOD pics & posts, right?
Well well well, finally we got the chance to try out this well known gourmet Burgers place “BYRON”
while trying any new burger place i stick to the classic burger, i think tasting the burger naked “Meat” flavor can make you judge a burger better “am a meat lover indeed”
this branch is newly opened in Soho, i liked how the building is whole glass, it feels like you are eating on the walkway & the sun can find it way to your table easily.
the seating area was nice & tidy
the menu is kinda basic & easy to browse; burgers, sides, salads & desserts
we had green olives while waiting for the Burgers. Nothing complimentary, those olives costs approximately 2 KD “london prices on fire, Baby” ;P
The Burgers was well presented, holding up all together & the bun is soft and Fresh
thats the BYRON sauce to the side. It should be eaten with the burger but we ate it with the fries instead “seems like mayonaise based sauce”
the Apricot salad which was nice, only thing is the apricot is a little undercooked
Bottom line : it was nice but i preferred GBK over BYRON. Maybe it’s my taste buds whats defected these days, but all i could say is: it was “OK” ,,, & in my dictionary OK means Maybe just MAYBE am going back for re-try
Unlike how it was back home.. here you have to place your order on one of those cashiers
They were opening the window shields to the walkway area.. which made the place more wider and refreshing
We’re not big fans of cole slows and I don’t know why we ordered it.. but we liked it a lot 😀
The staff were amazing.. we really had a good time there
Westfield Shopping Centre
Ripley’s Believe It or Not! is one of the entertainment attraction we love to visit over and over.. where we explore 700 odd, amazing and fun exhibits across 5 floors.. We’ve seen there some of the strange things that we’ve heard or read before..
This place is really where you can educate yourself and gain some culture in a matter of fun
The world’s smallest car
The famous Pixar Cars character (McQueen) made of crochet
Some bizarre transformations “Pranks of Nature,” like two-headed calf and 5-legged lamb
Tower Bridge made out of matchsticks
An upside-down tea party
Dresses made out of tissue rolls
This is the world’s tallest guy (2.72 m).. you could stand by him and see the difference 😉
Besides him a mammoth fossil
Loved their chandelier
One of the corridors leading to the wonders of the sea
Get a close up view of a Great White’s teeth and see an Albino Alligator! so creepy
Genuine human shrunken heads from the Jivaro Indians of Ecuador, bizarre ritual to shrink, involving removing the skull
Ghanaians choose to be buried in an elaborate coffins.. which represents some aspect of their life. Coffins are carved in the form of cars, trades, animals, etc, and the eagle generally indicates a leader or tribal chief.

While we were getting around in London, we noticed many artistic eggs distributed all over many places.. at first we thought it’s just a preparation for Easter, then we realized the metal plate below each egg which explained everything..
The story is that there are 209 eggs hidden across 12 Egg Zones across central London.. and in the competition’s website they have the maps of those 12 zones where you can use them to hunt and find all the 209 eggs..
The first, second and third eggs we found them in Covent Garden
This one was in Selfridges
This one is in Carnaby Street
And this was also in Covent Garden
Whoever enters the competition might win The Diamond Jubilee Egg valued at over £100,000 by simply texting the keyword when they find an egg!
Most of people who have been to London passed by Signor Sassi.. One of the famous Italian restaurants there.. This is our second visit to it..
On my first visit I was expecting a fancy place according on the strong recommendation I’ve heard.. but when I stepped into the restaurant I was thinking mmm.. it’s just fine 😛 check out the place..
To be honest I can not recall what we ate on our first visit.. all what we remember that people overrated the place.. coz the food was nice nothing more.. nothing less.. and the decoration was old fashioned 😛
I know u might ask why we went there again.. well that’s why:
Their welcoming OLIVES 😀
The funny thing is that this is an Italian restaurant that doesn’t serve PIZZA!
So here’s what we had that day..
Bruschetta with basil and giant tomato.. they really needed to chop their tomatoes more
Eggplant Parmigiana.. was outstanding 😀 definitely will have it again on my next visit
Penne Arrabiata.. Was yummy too
And that’s all.. if u wanna try it some day.. u need to place a call to reserve.. u’ll find them here:
