(Been thinking about planning a European food trip? Meet my friend & food blogger, Jackie, from Jersey City and let her recent trip there be your guide!)
Hi folks! I’m back to reality after spending two amazing weeks touring the UK, Malta and Ireland. I tend to travel where my stomach takes me, however, for this trip believe it or not the food was secondary. But since this is a food blog…to the food we go first!
My first stop in Europe was London. Having visited the UK over 10 times (to Scotland) but always bypassing London (long story for another post), I felt I had to go just to see what it’s all about.
The first place I went for dinner which I found on the top 10 list of Young and Foodish was Goodman Mayfair where a burger and chips goes for a mere 14 pounds; which is no extraordinary feat for a city known for being expensive. I topped my burger with cheddar and bacon both which provided texture and taste that enhanced the juiciness of the beef patty. Surprisingly, it was the pickle that I thought made the burger. It was slightly acidic enough to cut through the rest of the burger and slightly sweet to provide contrast. Overall, it was one of the better burgers I’ve had on other side of the pond in awhile. One thing to note is that, reservations are recommended. The staff indulged two nice American girls wanting a burger in London so my new friend and I were lucky enough to sit at the bar without having to wait at all but this steakhouse looks like the call-ahead-and-make-a-reservation type of place.
