Get-together with friends at Social Wine & Tapas (England)


After 3 nights in Gidleigh Park, we stayed in London for 1 night before flying off to Marrakesh.  Our friends who moved from Singapore to London about six months ago were going to be with us in Marrakesh but I asked them if they would be able to join us for dinner that evening.  At first it didn’t look possible because their friend was staying with them but they came back to say they would come with their friend, so five of us got together for dinner.


Christmas decorations were looking beautiful here and there.  These flowers were displayed in the lobby of Claridge’s, they always have beautiful flower display and I look forward to seeing it every time we are there.  They were starting to put the Christmas lights up in London, too, so it was looking very pretty at night.


ディナーは、Social Wine & Tapas (シンガポールにあるPollenやEsquinaと同じグループ)で。ホテルから歩いて数分のところにありました。個室ではないのですが、少し階段を上がったところに1つだけある大きなテーブルを5人で使わせていただけたので、ほぼ個室状態でした。

We went to Social Wine & Tapas (the same group as Pollen & Esquina in Singapore), which was very close to our hotel.  Although it wasn’t a private room, we were given a nice large table that was off the main part of the restaurant so it was almost a private room.


Each portion was small so we ordered many dishes and they were all very good.  I particularly remember that beets, roasted carrots, tomato on toast, grilled green pepper were delicious.  I wish it were here!  I’m happy that there are many restaurants in London that serve delicious foods these days.

The Macaroon is what our pâtissièr friend and her friend baked.


Although we hadn’t seen these friends for six months it felt like we’d been meeting them often.  It was lovely also to meet their friend.  Good company, good wine, good food – we had a lovely evening.
