Londoners love their brunch. It’s the greatest meal of the day! If your three days in London fall on the weekend, brunching is especially necessary.

Friends of Ours is our top choice for brunch in London because everything they serve is delicious (times 1,000), thoughtful, fresh, and plated to impress. Pictured above is their Eggs Asparagus (two poached eggs, seasonal baby asparagus, beetroot and lime hollandaise, black sesame seeds, and beetroot sprouts, on seeded toast) and their Smoked Salmon and Scrambled Eggs (in-house lime cured and green tea smoked salmon, with three scrambled eggs, on seeded toast). Brilliant!

Three Days in London


Originally founded by William the Conqueror in 1066 to keep out hostile Londoners, the Tower of London still stands smack in the middle of London. The Tower of London is a medieval fortress and UNESCO World Heritage Site, which has been continually built and rebuilt over the centuries. While strolling outside of the fortress, informative signs bring the Tower of London’s history to life, and you’ll also notice how sections of the fortress look different than others, due to the reconstructions over time. If you’d like to tour the inside, you can buy tickets online, or upon arrival.

Three Days in London


The Tower Bridge is another one of the city’s most famous and striking landmarks. After you’ve finished up at the Tower of London, you should make your way over to this bridge to snap lots of photos, see the bridge part for boats to pass underneath, walk across the bridge, and even go inside of the bridge to look down on London through glass floors and see the bridge’s engine rooms.

Three Days in London


Chicken tikka masala is actually Britain’s national dish, so obviously you should eat Indian food while in London. From spicy curries and flavor-packed samosas, to garlic naan and mango lassis, the Indian food in London is on point.

If you want to savor the best Indian food in the city, Dishoom is the place. We could go on and on about how delightful this place is, but you should really just try it for yourself.

Three Days in London


Come nightfall, jolly people fill Covent Garden, ready to eat delicious food, see theatre and opera performances, drink lots of beer, and enjoy the many street performances.

For a great night on the town, snag a reservation at one of Covent Garden’s best restaurants (Hello, Dishoom!), then see one of your favorite broadway shows (obviously, purchase your tickets well in advance), or enjoy a few hours of drinking and dancing with locals and tourists alike.

Reviews and Things: The City of Kuching

Etymology Of The Name “Kuching”:

Kuching means ‘cat’ in Malay and there are a number of suggestions as to how Sarawak’s capital acquired the name. Local legend has it that James Brooke (see section on ‘history’), pointing towards the settlement across the river, enquired what it was called. Whoever he asked, mistakenly thought he was pointing at a passing cat. However, there is also a contradiction regarding the common story of James Brooke whose indication was misinterpreted by the folks of this city. Malaysians who live in Sarawak usually refers to cats as “pusak” instead of Kuching. Therefore, there is a little doubt about how true the story was. If that seems a little far-fetched, the Sarawak Museum offers a few more plausible alternatives, the most likely of which is that the town may have originally have been known as Cochin – port – a word commonly used across India and Indochina. Before Brooke arrived, the city of Kuching was known as Sarawak.
Some folks also depict that the name of the city has been derived from a fruit called “Mata Kuching” which is widely available in Malaysia and Indonesia. There is a hill called Bukit Mata Kuching which is thought to be named after this fruit. Known from a letter of a British woman which was written to her son, Kuching is actually named after the Kuching River, a tidal stream that runs from Tua Pek kong Temple to Chinese History Museum and located at foot of the hill. At present the river does not exist due to the silt deposits.
