It's such a quaint little place Greenwich. I just find that it's all quite random if that makes sense. At one glance you have this beautiful park, which holds a museum and English Heritage buildings and the next you are in a busy market with hundreds of people crammed into the smallest space. Usually when we visit, we go to this little pub called The Trafalgar on the river, get some lunch and have a couple of drinks. We decided this time to actually get food in the market because we are always drooling over it whenever we walk round. I love Chinese, Japanese & Thai food and so I had a Chicken Katsu Curry & Els had BBQ Pork Sandwich. As you can expect it twas amazing. The problem with Greenwich, and any other place in London, is it's always packed, which is fine, except when you are trying to eat out of a container on the side of the street. We ended up perching our butts on a step just outside of the market (classy as ever) but I think that's definitely part of the charm! We passed this little place called Black Vanilla, and as if I wasn't stuffed enough, we made our way into the Ice Cream/Coffee/Champagne/Cake Shop. You get given a free glass of water, and I had a brownie & ice cream with a Cappuccino & Elliot had a Waffle with Dulche de leche ice cream & a Mocha. Not really sure why I went for a brownie with ice cream considering I don't like chocolate flavoured things aaaaaaaand I'm not a fan of ice cream. Now I think about it, it seems a bit backwards!
All in all, I came home relatively empty handed! All I managed to buy was a 1978 copy of Wuthering Heights & a book for my sisters English Lit coursework because the Waterstones in Greenwich actually had it in stock! So basically, my trip was all about the food this time and there is nothing wrong with that! But I can safely say I shall be returning to Greenwich in the next few weeks for a repeat and to buy a jumper that I had my eye on, that I regretfully didn't buy!
Some piccytures for y'all...
