Especially the Max Brenner's chocolate bar at Harrod's! We drank Venezuelan cocoa and Ecuadorian cocoa with orange and ate a warm chocolate souffle and a brownie.

We had nice afternoon teas at the British Museum and at the Royal Academy of the Arts (two kinds of scones: wholemeal fruit and plain. Here we also had a caramelized rice pudding with raspberries).

We enjoyed the food of Kerala, India at Malabar Junction. I didn't know that they specialized in food made with coconut milk.

We also enjoyed Chinatown, going to Fung Shing and having some dynamite salt-and-pepper fried eel with scallions and chillis at Royal Dragon.

I bought a bunch of large-leaf tea at Whittard's, as well as tea cakes and toffee fudge (to die for!) from Fortnum & Mason.

We also had decent pasta and pizza at Cafe Pasta and Pizza Express, comparable to the Pepe Rosso chain in New York.

We noticed that we even liked the chains more than in New York. We liked the Pret A Manger (here in New York, they have changed the sandwiches to fit American tastes, so they have taken out some of my favorites). We also thought that Caffe Nero and Costa were way better than Starbucks.

We thought Yo! Sushi was awful and when we go back we intend to try all the vegetarian places like Plant, Food for Thought and Mildred's.
