What & Where I Ate : London

I travel to London quite frequently. Most of the time it’s a trip to somewhere in Europe first…then I will make my way to London, normally by rail. Our older twin son is studying Computer Engineering in Birmingham University…all the more reason to visit UK. London is one city I don’t mind visiting again and again…maybe because of its cosmopolitan nature, nice weather, good food…and EPL (English Premier League).

I will normally stay in a hotel somewhere near St Pancras International Station…since the train from Europe terminate here and the Piccadilly Underground Line has a direct connection to London Heathrow.

When in London a must-eat is Fish and Chips. My favourite is the one at the Rocket, somewhere near St Pancras Station.
