The Bridge is Still Standing




I so wanted to document all my food visits while in London. That damn new job keeps getting in the way! But seriously folks, it’s best to focus on my job and delight you with some of the best views of London Bridge ever. Seriously. To get a view this lovely, you’d have to be one of those postcard photographers who position themselves on top of buildings or in helicopters or on boats along the River Thames. Or you’d have to be in the 6th floor board room of the Visit London offices for all-day meetings. You know, like me.



We did have a lovely dinner at Hakkasan, the only Chinese restaurant to be awarded a Michelin star. Owner, Alan   Yau, is also owner of the fabulously-easy and affordable chain of Wagamama restaurants. It’s very stylish, dark and moody – so much so that they refused to permit photos of the gorgeous space. I did however capture a photo of their lovely bathroom sink, before discovering the ban on personal photography. Wouldn’t we all prefer a trough in our own private bathrooms?
