West End Girls

We are really lucky/lazy girls, spent the entire weekend going up and down Wardour Street in Soho, all over the W1 from Chinatown to Carnaby Street to Charlotte Street... We get around by deciding where to eat.

Ordinary mode of operation within Soho
roughly in order of distance from our flat, south of Oxford Street
ATMs, Tesco on Dean Street
Vietnamese: Cay Tre 
Udon: Koya
Korean: Arirang
Non-mealtime snacks/desserts: Princi
There are no seats in Princi: L'eto Caffe 
Cupcakes: NOT Hummingbird - go to Lola @ Topshop Oxford Circus
Drinks: Kettner's

Taiwanese/Chinese: Leong's Legend
Roast meats: Four Seasons 
Chinese Desserts/Trash Talking: Candy Cafe 
Singapore/Malaysian: C&R Cafe

The list is lame, so Asian but that's how we roll. Noodles and rice = homely comforts. 

Weekends are special, so on Saturday night we went to Wright Brothers' Soho Oyster House.

Dozen oysters, Crab cakes, Pork belly + clams

Surf + Turf: Steak + langoustines

If I were rolling in the deep I would do this more often.. oysters + steak + chocolate dessert (the chocolate praline pot is so magical, like eating Nutella out of the pot but classy). Tummies filled we headed off for the rest of the London night, starting from home and then moving into progressively blurrier space... finally ending with a 4am rickshaw ride back to Charlotte Place and getting tucked into bed by my lovely friends.
