I love food and London (except for the pricey standard of living and often gloomy weather). It is multicultural, lively, and fun! There are so many things to do and there are infinite restaurants to choose from. But to help Londoners and tourists alike with the difficult decisions of finding the perfect weekend spots and activities around the city, I am now featuring recommendations with London This Week.
First stop: The Smoking Goat. It’s now easily one of my top pick foodies’ places in Soho. *Soho is a very popular area for both food and entertainment. The Smoking Goat is a cozy bar and restaurant offering a great variety of fish and Thai meat dishes and drinks. My menu favourites are the Chilli Fish Sauce Wings and the Hang Lae Curried Pork Belly. The winning deal? They serve unlimited sticky rice for £1 per person! (This only happens in the Philippines.)
After a fabulous dinner at The Smoking Goat, go for a lighthearted night out at The Top Secret Comedy Club. It was my first stand-up comedy experience and I have to agree with its high rated reviews. I was treated with hilarious laughs from comedians Rhys James and Henning Wehn (He is one funny German man!). *I want more though!
