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.
PORTERS is what I imagined a traditional English Pub experience would feel like. It’s located near Covent Garden, a popular shopping and tourist site on London’s West End, also know as the Theatre District.
One of my favorite traditional London Pubs is The Counting House. A former banking hall built in 1893, it has had its 19th Century charm preserved with chandeliers, a wooden staircase, high-domed ceiling, and authentic fixtures reminiscent of that era.
Be sure to check out The Counting House when you’re in London…
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.
Mama’s Table gets our two thumbs up. Highly Recommended! 🙂

MANOR at Camp John Hay is one of the best places to spend Christmas in the Philippines. You get the cold December weather, log wood cabin accommodations, actual pine Christmas trees, and a romantic restaurant, Le Chef, to complete the festive experience.
