family and food

Tonight had a really nice time with my brothers and my dad. We met up at Kings Cross station, then got the bus to Liverpool Street (near where I used to work when I was living in London) and walked over to Spitalfields Market, which even though it was Sunday evening was still buzzing and fun. We walked around for a wee while, including a walk around Brick Lane where there were a few pubs far too cool for us (and also too crowded) plus Indian restaurants aplenty, with guys outside trying to persuade us to go in for “special deals” – no thanks.

We ended up back at the market, and went to a great place – Canteen – which does traditional English food really well. It’s pretty simple and very reasonably priced (and looking at their website I see it won the Observer Food Magazine’s Best Restaurant award for 2007, but more importantly it was really fun to be with all three of my brothers and my dad. We just had a great time chatting, joking around and generally hanging out.
