Taste of London

Taste of London took place in Regent’s Park from June 15 to 19, and I of course went there last Friday with friends. For all you foodies lovers, this is the place to be! This food festival happens twice a year, once in summer and once in winter.

All the big restaurants and chefs are represented and one gets to taste different small dishes from each stall. Be careful what you crave for! Aha, I planned my visit as I didn’t want to miss the big names and wanted to still be able to enjoy each bite.

It started as a sunny afternoon.

Let me show you my favourite dishes!

After this I also indulged in some ice-cream. Oh, and we also had drinks! You can imagine how full we were.

I didn’t try all the dishes here but shared most of them with my friends. And you, if you have been to Taste of London, what was your favourite dish?
