Today, I met with a good friend of mine who’s been living in London for eight years. She took me to this place called Beach Blanket Babylon just around the corner. It has been right under my nose but me being such an explorer!, I failed to notice what’s apparently one of the trademark restaurants of Notting Hill. I absolutely loved the decor inside. (The exact opposite of the industrial Mason&Taylor I wrote about earlier. I must have MPD.) I loved the fact that there are (two) fireplaces and you can have a drink with a friend while warming up next to it. I loved that it’s so close to my house. I only had desert, not a whole dinner but the apple pie was promising. I will definitely be visiting again.
