Harrods (where I could have stayed for a few more hours) and grabbed a few gifts before we left for Denmark. I got a few things for friends there and also at Fortnum and Mason (oh, please let me live there) and we had a great time browsing the food and grocery sections. Then we headed upstairs and I bought 8 of the Peter Rabbit collection for my kids and I am so happy to have that as a memento of this trip. I've always wanted these sweet, little books (my awesome friend Jaimey even threw me a Peter Rabbit book shower for Fritz) and it's extra special that they're from London.
The Golden Hind on a recommendation but after over an hour of walking and trying to find it, we gave up. My first choice was to go to Kerbisher & Malt but our concierge told us to go to a place close to our hotel (I think it had "Lion" in the name) and it was a bust. Like, gross - soggy batter, undercooked peas, dry fries and the tartar sauce was nasty (tasted like it had gone bad). Maybe I'm wrong but it kind of seemed like fish and chips is more of a tourist thing rather than something that the British eat very often. When we asked people on the street where they ate fish and chips, they just said, "Well . . . I don't know." What do you think London readers? Oh well, San Diego has pretty good fish and chips and now I can at least say I've had fish and chips in London. :)
