Other airport purchases: Salt & Vinegar chips, at Heathrow: Marks & Spencers Food Store Sandwich: falafel & spinach, mixed nuts.
Breakfast: out of our nine night stay, four of the them did not include a continental breakfast. I put almonds and granola in my checked luggage, and we went to TESCO supermarket for the rest (all rooms had coffee, tea, and kettle). Usually it was apples and scones (too bad I couldn't find any vegan ones - they looked good).
Hotel continental breakfast for me usually consisted of toast, jam, fruit & coffee. Occasionally dry cereal.
During the day: most of the time, we grabbed something quick and shoved it in our face while walking to our next destination. On most occasions, I dipped into Pret A Manger for a wrap: either falafel or avocado, tomato. I thought I took a picture of one, but I didn't. Other midday meals included this beautiful Parsnip & Apple Soup at Dover Castle:
Other days we were too busy and had snacks in the late afternoon before heading out for dinner later (also from TESCO).
My brother is not a foodie, and he likes food to be cheap. We had one big meal out a day, and it was at a variety of places. Wagamama, Yasai Yaki Soba (without the egg - and with crushed peanuts because I wanted pad thai, but their noodles were not vegan). Yummy.
Tortilla. Just like Chipotle, but not as good. Decent enough.
Pub Food: Veggie Burger & Chunky Chips (I had this exact plate two nights in a row - good.)
But more often, I had a side salad with vinaigrette and a plain jacket potato. Occasionally I'd throw some sauce on the potato. No butter for me.
I thought I took more, but so often we were distracted (and glad to be sitting!). I can say that English food while not particularly flavorful, wasn't that bad. I know they've worked long and hard against a bad reputation! Also, I ate a lot of salads with "rocket" and only had spinach twice. I'm sad to say that we did not make it to a vegetarian restaurant. The time period in which we were near that area (Covent Garden) was a particularly stressful day, which I'll share more about later.
See you tomorrow with our first day trip!
