I spent most of Saturday glued to the TV watching the London Olympics 2012 - yes, surprisingly enough I am drawn into all this Olympic fever with the rest of the world!
Had dinner at a lovely Japanese restaurant that we stumbled upon in Soho - Bincho on Old Compton Street. We ordered 2 portions of rice, The Seven Samurai, and a couple from the Yakitori selection.
|Sho Chikubai Hot Sake - served warm in traditional flask/tokkuri, the blue rings at the bottom of the cup (ochokko) are used to judge the sake's clarity.|
|Unagi - eel with sansho pepper|
|The Seven Samurai|
|Aigamo - duck breast, wasabi and spring onion|
|Ninniku Chahan (buttered garlic rice) and Oyako Don (steamed rice with chicken, soft cooked egg & spring onion)|
Finished off with one of my favourite indulgences - bubbletea mmm...
|My little taste of heaven x|
On a rather temperamental Sunday (weather-wise), we fueled up with some home-made breakfast by the Little Chef!
Yes, I do an AWESOME scrambled egg ha!

When we got into town, we managed to catch some of the Marathon action!
Absolutely love the excitement in the atmosphere - definitely the best time to be in London.
We then wandered around Southbank and nibbled around the Real Food Market.
|Someone running low on energy ha :p|
It's back to watching the Olympics now - Men's 100m final in a few minutes!
Bolt, Blake, Powell, Gatlin?!
And not forgetting to mention - how AMAZING is Team GB doing!
3rd on the Leader board so far woohoo!
