A Trip to Covent Garden in London

Covent Garden is such a lively place, a vibrant place.  There are outdoor markets, street shows, shops, restaurants, pubs, crowds and so much more.  It is a great place to go out and sit at a table outside, and people watch.

So first, we people watched a little, then we did a little more from our table at this restaurant – The Covent Garden Kitchen (address: The Market, Covent Garden, London, WC2).  It was a lovely evening, nice and warm and great to be sitting outside.  I wish I had got a family picture taken, but we got pictures separately, first me, then my two oldest and then my little one.

Here’s some of what we ate in Covent Garden:

I love how in England, they cater for people with spicy tastes – there are so many Indians and other Asians here who love spicy food, that it is quite pleasant to find that the food is more spicier or that they will add to it to make it more appealing to those with certain tastes.

My son likes paninis, and anything with lots of cheese, so his was not too spicy (which is fine with him)!

This was a nice fish and risotto concoction.

After we left the restaurant, we wandered around a little.

Our feet were quite tired that it was tempting to take a rickshaw, but we didn’t.  We weren’t too far from our hotel in Trafalgar Square.

Look at this picture, it must have been the way I took the picture, but the ladies infront of the telephone booth came out blurry, and added to the effect of the “Ghost Stories” picture.

I have been to the Hippodrome Nightclub once or twice when I used to live in London many years ago, now I see there is a Casino – not sure if there is still a nightclub.

Oh, how I wish I could take away this fish and chip shop and have it in San Diego, so that I could have it’s fish and chips when I pleased!
