Feast

Taste of London: The Food

I started eating injudiciously. We'd been handed a program at the entryway, a list of which of the forty restaurants were serving which three dishes. I wanted to see what the dishes looked like in the flesh, how they were presented, how the fair would work. There were next to no lines at the beginning, so browsing was easy. And so it was only a few dishes later that I realized that the portions were slightly larger than I was counting on, and that I had filled up rather too quickly on heavy meats. I sampled more than I could have on my own, thanks to C., but to do the fair justice would have required coming back several times over the course of the weekend (a small fortune), or else arriving with a far more ravenous appetite than I had.
