London: St. John

Here I am again, back from a long awaited vacation in Europe. A lot of things happened since the last post almost a year ago, and of course food was a big part of that. I am diving into this world of food again by beginning with St. John, a meal I had not long after I landed in Heathrow…

Eiffel Tower

#91 this year on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants and awarded One Michelin Star, the atmosphere did not felt like swanky restaurant at all, which is not a bad thing. It felt like an eatery for the blue collar worker, which sounds about right since the Smithfield Market is just nearby.

St. John - Bone Marrow

The food was humble (for a Michelin Star restaurant) but flavorful without all the pretentious food pairing or presentation. The Bone Marrow was like seasoned foie gras, so fatty yet so good.

St. John - Welsh Rarebit

The Welsh Rarebit was another recommended item. It was served piping hot and had an unique taste that I wasn’t expecting. It was kind of like a cheese toast but the sour undertone wasn’t really my cup of tea…
