London Day 2: Staying Local in Victoria

Fact:  There is no shortage of things to do in this city.  Fact: People love their happy hours more than they do in the states.

After a long day of work, it was time to meet up with an old acquaintance I hadn’t see in almost a year-and-a-half.  She lives very close to where my boyfriend and I were staying and she knows almost all of London very well.

After catching up at the hotel bar, she took us to a chic spot in Sloane Square (another haunt of the famous Middleton sisters) called The Botanist (try the passion fruit martini). We casually chatted with a few of the other people there and then made our way to our next stop: food.

My boyfriend and I parted ways with our friend and decided on a small Brazilian Steakhouse called Preto.  It was inexpensive and very authentic (by authentic, the “salad bar” is traditional Brazilian and British fare).  The meat selection is fantastic but as we discovered, we’re pretty sure the meats are soaked in salt for a few weeks.

Then, it was back to the hotel for an early night, since we were leaving for Paris in the morning.

A huge “shout out” goes to Konstantia Mamada for catching up and being our Friday night guide around town 🙂
