Yesterday morning we decided to walk through the park to South Kensington to grab a bite to eat at Muriel’s Kitchen and check out the local farmer’s market. It wasn’t anything special (I miss the huge farmer’s markets in San Francisco – food truck galore!!) but we managed to pick up our staple farm fresh organic eggs, some veggies and some raw milk. After that we headed to Muriel’s! This place is always packed – especially on saturday afternoons. We still decided to brave the cold and wait in line outside since we were in the area. Muriel’s Kitchen has recently been one of our favourite choices for restaurants in South Kensington if we’re looking for for a delicious, hearty, and relatively healthy meal.There are lots of healthy choices for salads and sides to share. The first time we went there, I wasn’t to impressed, but my bf on the other hand, loved it! The interior was charming and had a cozy feel so I didn’t mind going back and giving it another try and I’m glad I did!

Meringue Mountain in all its glory
Hehe I like how they named the bill! Damage for three (three mains and one side) was about £35
Every time we’re at Muriel’s Kitchen we see sky high slices of red velvet cake being dished out, along with carrot cake and american-sized glasses of diner style milkshakes. I’m sure they taste amazing, but we haven’t actually tried dessert at Muriel’s yet since we’re always in a “must be healthy. Don’t look at the cakes. Must. be. healthy” mindset whenever we chose to eat there. The mountain of meringues drizzled with a bright berry sauce, decadent homemade cakes and beautiful coloured macaroons staring right at you through the front of the window never helps when we walk in!! I’m definitely getting a slice of the red velvet cake next time we go!
