(W-35, Pt 1): 48 hours in London with fatty

My cousin, Anna, who lives in Helsinki, came to visit London town for the weekend! It was so much fun. I need to divide this in two parts as it was a jam-packed!
(See Part 2 here)

We affectionately call each other 'fatty' as our love for food and insatiable appetites run in the blood and, in the limited time we had together, we did what we do best - EAT. ALOT.
We were very happy fatties.

Friday night

Our first stop on the Friday night was Shoreditch, to the food night market at Pump of course.
This is at Pump holding deep fried marinated chicken.

Actually I lie. Our first stop was Super Kebab downstairs where we shared a mixed kebab with fries before heading off to Shoreditch.
Then after Pump, we popped by Dinerama and shared a pork belly bao too.

Saturday morning

Starting off our food adventures with morning coffee

The food haven that is Borough Markets

Saturday afternoon

At Farringdon, on our way to Granger & Co for some Aussie brekkie!
Yes, this is straight after Borough Markets. 

Happy fatty with the full Aussie brekkie and banana ricotta hotcakes

I just had the orange juice
Not! :P

To burn off our breakfast(s), we cycled to Covent Garden to watch The Lion King musical, finally! This was definitely a highlight of the weekend. From the opening scene you are captivated. 
Favourite musical so far!

After the musical, we walked around Covent Garden

And had "late lunch" at Shake Shack! 
The cloud installation

We then walked along the tourist trail of Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Regent Street and Oxford Circus.


Saturday evening

We even managed to hop on a bus to check out Harrods

Did we stop eating food after the Harrods?

We ended the day with a solid Korean meal at Naru near Tottenham Court.

(Sunday will be on Part 2!)
