Whewwww there’s a lot of my travel stuff that I haven’t gone through from my Europe trip back in July. One of my favourite areas to visit and be touristy is South Kensington area. When it comes to travelling, I’m a firm believer in eating little things throughout the day so I can jam pack as much tastes as I can savour. South Kensington is in the western part of London, with popular museums such as Science Museum, Victoria and Albert Musuem as well as the Natural History Musuem. Between all the museum hopping, sustenance is required in between.
I have to thank Instagram for introducing me to many new dessert places. Richmond just used to have a plethora of Asian food and semi decent food of other cultures and recently there has been an explosion of dessert spots, and I’m not complaining. Bubble waffles are one of my favourite snacks to munch when I’m out and about (so hard to get a hold of them now,) and when I knew there was a place to get over glorified bubble waffles at this placed called The BBT Shop in Richmond…well I must check that out.
I am not a burger person; the only reason that I have developed a small appreciation for burgers was that there were always free BBQs for engineering students at UBC. Also, when I was a poor student, the $1.39 burgers at McDonalds were too attractive. I was sort of tricked by my boyfriend to go with him to Romer’s Burger Bar in the River District. There are three locations and the one at River District is located by the Fraser River on Kerr St. If you like trendy food, drinking out of mason jars, and organic/locally grown food then this may be a spot for you, but expect to pay more than your average McDonalds burger.
Are you all about food during the holidays? I find myself buying a lot more drinks lately due to special concoctions and Christmas cups. And who can forget Christmas themed menus that restaurants whip up? The Urban Tea Merchant always do a seasonal tea service to complement the holidays and this year they have the Festive Tea Service and the Sugar Plum Tea Service (for children).
