So I was in London yesterday for work - I guess you could call it an educational trip!
I decided to travel down the day before and go for a little explore around, because well... why not? :)
I only visited a couple of restaurants, but wow they were lovely ones! I thought I would do a little post on where I went as I know you all like to be kept in the loop ha ha!
We went for lunch at a really cool place called Coya. I believe that it's the same people that own Zuma and Roka but it was a Peruvian restaurant not the usual Japanese style that they do.
Coya Restaurant Bar & Grill in Mayfair
We had such a fantastic meal! I tried to take some pics of the food. I know I always say this... but I was seriously hungry! ha ha! It was so yummy, here are some foodie pics of what we ate...

Corn tortillas and Shrimp Crackers with home made guacamole
Patatas Bravas a la Peruana
Crispy potatoes, spicy tomatoes, huancaina sauce
Gem lettuce, Peruvian beans, purple potatoes, radish
Chicken, red peppers and sweet corn
Then in the evening we went for another nice meal at a place called Babaji in Soho. This was a Turkish restaurant that we have been wanting to check out for a while. Check out the pictures...
So, above we had...
Fried calamari, roasted eggplant, artichoke with beetroot and olive oil, homemade humus with fresh bread (ALOT OF BREAD!), chargrilled red peppers, samphire with garlic, red pepper and sunblush tomato and my friends also tried the 'Pide'. Pide is a Turkish style pizza and they had a chargrilled courgette and also a lamb one. I had a teeny tiny corner of the courgette one but as it contained cheese I tried to avoid it. What I did eat though was rather yummy!
Linden, ginger and honey tea
Turkish Coffee - Seriously strong coffee!!
We had such a great evening and the food was really good. I highly recommend trying it next time you're in London.
Thanks for reading! I will keep you posted on all my foodie adventures :)
