London Lovin’: St Christopher’s Place

The plethora of alfresco dining choices had me drawn in. The colourful interior beyond its ‘landmark purple clock’ delivered its promise of an eclectic shopping mix, right up the alley where London’s best bars and restaurants laid in wait. St Christopher’s Place sits at the heart of the West End and can be found between Selfridges and Bond Street station. I’m still a big fan of Pret A Manger’s latte, salad and sandwiches.

London Lovin’: Salads Galore

In an attempt to eat healthy, after weeks of body-damaging food & activities,
I’m (finally) faithfully eating my greens!

The variety of salads at Pret A Manger is staggering.
Besides being so darn fresh this salmon couscous is actually very yummy!

Also, my mom will be glad I’m not just eating chips, chocs and cereal for dinner in the hotel.

London Lovin’: Pret A Manger

It’s London Lovin’ Week!

Managed to tick something off my bucket list today:
spend an afternoon with coffee and a book, in London’s Pret A Manger.

The name Prêt à Manger means ‘ready-to-eat’ in French. The first shop was opened in Hampstead, London.
(and please, it’s pronounced “pret-ah-mahn-zhay“, not “prettaye man-gurl”)

What I had this afternoon
“Barista’s Specialty”: Vanilla Latte

Unlike your conventional fast food, Pret A Manger only produces fresh, handmade, and 100% organic sandwiches, croissants, fruits and tarts.

And for 4pm on a Thursday afternoon, their Covent Garden store was exceptionally roomy!DSCN3909

Coffee from Pret A Manger was also surprisingly really really good.
Instead of reading, I was leeching off Pret’s WiFi. Which was what 90% cafè-bums would do anyway, so, not guilty 😉

Will be doing more cafè-hunting tomorrow and the day after!
