One day in Brighton, we headed out to find some lunch.
This restaurant was close to our hotel, and the menu looked pleasant enough. But something about the name of the cafe--I'm not sure what--prompted us to continue our search for the perfect lunch venue.
This restaurant looked elegant and popular. Unfortunately, we've seen the Hatter several times, in Lewis Carroll's novels and in movies. While his food might be delicious, there's his riddles and poetry to contend with, and we find these perplexing at the best of times. So, as we wanted a quiet, relaxing (and less mentally-taxing) lunch, we decided to move along.
We're always up for a bit of Mexican food, so we took a look at this restaurant's menu.
Things were looking promising, until we saw this entree:
Hmm. Time to move along.
As we walked Brighton's busy streets, we realized that it was quite nice out. Sure, it was cold, but the sun was shining, and the wind wasn't blowing anything like it had earlier in the week. So we stopped by Morrison's, a popular English grocery store chain, picked up some British food favorites--such as Cornish Pasties, Sausage Rolls, and Quavers--and headed off to the park to enjoy our lunch together.
Sometimes, it's the simplest experiences that you end up enjoying the most. Don't you agree?
