Hallooo everybody 😀
For the moment the number 1# restaurant in London on tripadvisor is called Liman – and especially after I saw the menus hugh selection of vegetarian dishes – I had to try it.
Actually it was my boyfriend who spotted it, looking for a place to eat for our year day. So he is visiting from Denmark, which in some way is a little bit stressful, as I have so much stuff to do all the time regarding the MA program, work etc. – and I feel really guilty when I can’t spend all of my time with him all the time that he is here – BUT it is also such a nice and(!) necessary breathing pause for me – as it is kind of forcing my head away from focusing! It is just so important to remember to force ourselves to do fun, social, relaxing things – even though we don’t feel like we have time for it! And I can feel that I really needed (more than I thought) to focus a little bit on other things than what I am doing here..
Anyway – what I wanted to write about is this really great turkish restaurant. You should definitely go there if you, like me, looove middle eastern food.
Liman has A LOT of veggie options – I think even more than meat options, which is amazing. All of the veggie choices is dishes that you don’t see everywhere else – not dishes where they are trying to replace the meat with tofu or falafel. So often when I eat at restaurants which is promoting themselves as veggie-friendly, I find that the dishes is just copied of a non-veggie dishes – with meat-replacements. And that is just not working. Spices and flavors don’t go together the same way – and vegetarian meals needs to be created as so and not as “vegetarian meat dishes”.- if that makes sense.
The restaurant is located in Angel, and have a really nice atmosphere. It is so cute! Staff are really friendly – but not the the best service (not that it mattered so much to me). I think we paid 50 pounds for two courses each and a bottle of wine – so it is definitely affordable! I wouldn’t say that the food-experience totally overwhelmed me, but it was food with lots of taste and quality commodities – and I would definitely go there again. You get a lot for the money 🙂
I’ll talk to you again soon – have a really nice day <3
