LONDON FOOD: GIRAFFE

Igår kveld hadde jeg og Vilde en veldig flott kveld i London, hvor vi utforsket forskjellige steder og nøt god mat og drikke. Vi startet kvelden i Mayfair, gikk ned til Southbank, gikk etterpå bort til London Bridge langs Themsen, og endte natten i South Kensington. Mens på Southbank, stoppet vi på Giraffe for en rask matbit og noen drinker. Vi ville bare noen små retter til å dele, og endte opp med å bestille "bruchetta fingers" og en "Messe plate", sammen med den beste cider noensinne (Rekorderlig Strawberry & lime). Siden vi allerede hadde spist tidligere ønsket vi ikke noen store retter, men menyen hadde mange fristende middager til en annen gang, i tillegg til noen desserter som så helt nydelige ut, (etter det jeg så på bordene rundt meg). Prisene var veldig greie/ normale, spesielt til at det er så fint plassert på Southbank hvor mange turister går, og det var tydelig en veldig populær plass. Vi startet kvelden ganske tidlig og gikk på Giraffe rundt klokken 17-18.  Det var da allerede ganske overfylt, men vi fikk et bord med en gang, og vi fikk og maten og drikken vår svært raskt. Servicen der var fantastisk, akkurat som maten, og vi hadde en veldig fin tid der. Når vi var ferdige å spise og ønsket å gå videre til et annet sted, møtte vi plutselig en veldig lang kø som ventet på å få et bord, så jeg tror vi var heldige og gikk der i en virkelig god tid. Hvis du ønsker å gå dit på en fredagskveld, i hvert fall hvis du er mer enn to personer, ville jeg kanskje foreslå å bestille et bord!

Last night me and Vilde had such a great night out in London, exploring different places and enjoying some good food and drinks. We started of in Mayfair, walked down to Southbank, walked over to London Bridge afterwards following the Thames, and ended the night in South Kensington. While at Southbank, we stopped at Giraffe for a quick bite to eat and some drinks. We just wanted some small plates to share,  and ended up ordering "Bruchetta fingers" and a "Messe plate", paired with the best cider ever (Rekorderlig Strawberry & lime). Since we had already eaten dinner earlier we did not want anything to big, but the menu did have a lot of tempting dishes that I would love to try for another time, in addition to some amazing looking desserts I saw people around our table ate! The prices were very good/ normal, especially considering it is such a great location with the Thames, where a lot of tourists go, and it was clearly a popular place. We started the night quite early and sat down there around 5 - 6pm. It was already then quite crowded, but we got a table immediately, and we also got our food and drinks very quickly. The service there was amazing, as well as the food, and we had a really good time. When we were done eating and wanted to move on to somewhere else, there was suddenly a really long queue waiting to get a table, so I think we were lucky and got there in a really good time. If you do go there on a Friday evening, at least if you are more than two people, I would maybe suggest you to book a table!
