When I told a few of my friends about my impending trip to London, most of the conversations ended up being somewhat like this...
Me: I'm stopping by London for a couple of days on the way to Paris.
Friend: Oh! Cool! Are you going to Fat Duck???????
Friend: Why not?! That's like the best restaurant in the world. Everyone goes or at least tries to visit when they're in London!
Me: Erm... it didn't cross my mind? And... no time???
Now the funny thing is since when did Fat Duck become synonymous with London? It isn't even there! But then of course I'm just being stupid and finding excuses for my "missing out" on a visit. There really just wasn't enough time since I was planning a full eating schedule in London and frankly, it just wasn't high up on my list of 'must-tries'.
