Brunch at The Spotted Pig

This morning, my friend Josh and I went to brunch at The Spotted Pig. I've tried to go there before (stupidly, on a Friday night) and been scared away by the two hour wait. But today I figured, if we got there at 11am (which Elana informs me is "old lady brunch"), we should be fine. Here's the picture I took of the hanging pig outside the restaurant while I waited for Josh for 20 minutes.

We went inside, got seated right away and were immediately helped by one of the cutest waiters I'd ever seen. Not only was he adorable, he had a British accent. Josh wanted me to take a picture of him to show you, but I refrained. I took pictures of our food instead. I had the special brisket hash with poached eggs:

And Josh had pumpkin pancakes with chili maple syrup:

Both excellent. Then we splurged and got dessert - Banoffe Pie, which I thought would be bananas and coffee, but instead, was bananas and toffee. Yum!

All in all, a lovely experience. I've been going out a lot these past two days, but tomorrow it's back to cooking! And I might even see some theatre tonight.....who knows.
