The LONDON EYE Experience :) @UKinPhilippines

London Eye Experience - London - Our Awesome Planet-2.jpg

The LONDON EYE is the iconic giant Ferris Wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames in London, also known as the Millennium Wheel.

It is Europe’s tallest Ferris Wheel at 135 metres (443 ft) in height and a wheel diameter of 120 metres (394 ft). It’s a popular British icon that even my boys know about and want to ride someday.

It’s fun to ride it as a group. Our Philippine media delegation actually occupied an entire capsule! 🙂

Here’s a photo essay of our London Eye experience…

I ♥ COVENT GARDEN! @UKinPhilippines

Covent Garden - London - Our Awesome Planet-11.jpg

COVENT GARDEN is a historic building converted into a shopping centre in 1980. It’s famous for its cute cafes, pubs, small stalls, a craft market called Apple Market, and a tiangge called Jubilee Hall.  

It’s popular among Filipinos looking for a bargain and a cool place to eat before watching a show on the West End. According to Pepper, this is also the best place for Forex if you’re looking for a high exchange rate for your dollar.

When we first arrived in London, we asked around for the best places to eat in.

Good thing we had our expert Pepper Teehankee, who lives half of the time in London. He suggested this cool Spanish resto hangout called CAMBIO DE TERCIO along Old Brompton Road, which was within walking distance from where we were staying.

I’ve heard yummy stories about Chef Vicky’s private dining in Baguio from foodies raving about the experience. We met Chef Vicky in Mercato Centrale, with her stall selling her yummy goodies from Baguio, when we first opened in 2010.

She offers an 8-course, French-inspired, strictly-by-reservation private dining in her lovely home in Baguio. She only accepts strictly one group at a time, with a minimum of 6 persons.

There is no menu, so just be prepared to be surprised with the 3-hour, 8-course Degustation Meal.

VERDICT

Mama’s Table gets our two thumbs up. Highly Recommended! 🙂

Your Baguio foodie trip would not be complete if you don’t get to experience Chef Vicky’s food, warm and kid-friendly hospitality and authentic Baguio Home ambiance.

(Tip: You can bring your own wine with no corkage fee.) 

Can you share your own experience at Mama’s Table?
