dishoom & dinos: london day two

The Dishoom we visited was in the Shoreditch neighborhood, an area that has become increasingly fashionable and hip over the years as a result of gentrification. There’s a lot of street art hidden in little alleyways and floating on the top level of industrial buildings, so it’s an interesting area to walk around in and snap some photos. I’ve heard that Shoreditch is best known for its nightlife — will check that out next time!

 

 



 

 

 

 



 

 

After stuffing ourselves with scones and pastries, the weather had started to cool down and we took a lovely walk around the Kensington area, an exceedingly handsome neighborhood with very well-groomed homes, elegant streets, and magnificent architecture. We eventually ended up at Kensington Gardens — we sat on the grass and enjoyed a moment of green and serenity amidst the hustle and bustle of the city.

By the end of the day, we were knackered and decided to get Indian take-out for a chill night in. This was one of the loveliest days I’ve ever had and writing this makes me miss London very much.

    First off, I absolutely love the editorial-look of your blog post – it’s so different to anything I’ve seen. Second, I’ve heard SO much about Dishoom that it’s first on my list for my visit to London later this year!
