Sorry for the absence – I have been a bit busy the past couple of days doing some last minute packing (and I do mean very, very LAST minute) and shopping before catching my flight back to Malaysia. The flight itself was a good one and I slept well throughout although I had an annoying air stewardess wake me up to for food… ‘No I don’t want any of your food because it’s horrible, thank you very much.’ Incidentally, I bumped into a old schoolmate of mine who was one of the pilots on my flight so I knew that I was in good hands! Anyways, before I flew off, I met up with A and P2 to do a bit of catching up over lunch. A suggested going to 140 Park Lane Restaurant as they were doing a cheap lunch menu – 2 courses for £15, 3 for £19. When A told me the name of the restaurant I went ‘Ok, don’t need to give me the address, I want the NAME of the restaurant..’ Apparently the restaurant is ingeniously named after its address.
As expected, P2 arrived at the restaurant fashionably late. The restaurant is relatively small with an open kitchen so you can view the chefs in action (or conversely watch their cock ups). The restaurant wasn’t a popular choice for dining, and even at 1.30 p.m. there were only 2 other tables being served. The lunch menu consisted of contemporary British cuisine with 3 options per course including the obligatory vegetarian option. As I was in a bit of a rush – well I had yet to do my shopping OR packing – we opted for 2 courses only (though we did spoil ourselves a bit with a bottle of Rose).
