On Saturday I hopped on the train to go and spend the day in London Town, and catch up with my good friends Lauren and Hayley, who now live in the capital. We wanted to spend the day a little like tourists, and with enough time to have a good old catch up.

To get the day started Lauren put on a 'healthy' breakfast spread for us, and we caught up on the latest gossip over mugs of tea before heading into central.

After literally walking round in circles in the pouring rain (thanks to the Iphone sending us in the wrong direction) we finally made it to the Saatchi Gallery, just of Sloane Square for a spot of culture.

We strolled around the different floors, and admired the different pieces of art

Got more than a little confused at what they actually think art is?


and had a abit of a laugh

before heading on for lunch at nearby Partridges.


I opted for the Italian Penne Pasta with diced Chorizo, Spinach, mushroom and cream, before heading outside to their Saturday market on the hunt for some dessert.

We made sure to try all the samples before settling on, what I like to call, cookie dough heaven.


It may not look the prettiest but it tasted AMAZING, problem was we could barley eat half of it before declaring we would never eat anything, ever-again.
We literally stumbled up the Kings road, moaning about how sick we felt before giving in and grabbing a Starbucks so we could rest our sick little over fed bodies.
After people watching and filling each other in with all our crazy life gossip (yer right) and a bus ride later for some window shopping in Selfridges, we retired for the evening in a little pub tucked behind Oxford street.
A few bottles later, and our stomach ready to eat again we headed over the road to the hugely popular Patty & Bun. As it was past 10pm we didn't have to queue, in fact just beg that they would still serve us, after a quick word with chef we were able to order our burgers.

I have heard GREAT things about this place, and we were very excited to get stuck in.
We both went for the Ari Gold, and eagerly unwrapped our presents, took them in our hands and dived right in. What I can only describe as a taste sensation, we spent the next few minutes, with mouths full and nods of approvals, before declaring that was the best burger we have ever had. Ever.

Now I am eagerly planning my next visit up to get my mouth around that burger again.

  5. Ah I have always had P&B on my go-to list, but dont spend an awful lot of time up in Central anymore..
