Flat Iron

I wasn't expecting to have another lifestyle post for you so soon but Dan decided to take us for a post-work Monday night treat at Flat Iron on Beak St. in Soho. His boss went there the Friday before and couldn't stop raving about how good it was. I had a peek at their website which annoyingly didn't contain much information (we later discovered this was part of their minimal theme) but their Facebook page came up trumps with plenty of photographic evidence of their meaty offerings.

Patty & Bun

Following our 3 hour tour around the British Museum, we'd worked up a serious appetite. This was a semi-deliberate attempt to balance out the gluttony that we planned to embark on at Patty & Bun. I'd been desperate to try Patty & Bun for a while but we don't spend much time around Central London. Plus I'm not really about that queuing life (Dan's colleague once queued for an hour to eat there!). Cleverly, we scheduled our trip just before dinnertime rush hour and arrived at 4.30.

The British Museum

Our plans to check out some more greenery had to be abandoned due to the predictably crappy British weather. Rather than trudging around in the rain we chose to get some knowledge at the British Museum. I'm pretty sure we've been before when we were at school but neither of us could remember much about it. 

As we walked up to the grand entrance, we were surprised at the amount of people around.

Richmond Park

Something has changed in me. Or maybe I've always felt this way and never realised. The truth is, these days I'm always craving fresh air. Even popping out at lunchtimes in the polluted City doesn't satiate my appetite for the outdoors. So it was only natural that the first thing Dan & I choose to do on the first day of our week off together, was find the biggest bit of greenery we could find in London - Richmond Park.
