It was a chilly day as we strolled around London. And really, it was a stroll – we had no specific destination in mind.  And that was nice.  I’ve done London before when it felt like there was so much to fit into a week, a weekend, even a day.  The four of us were simply formulating plans as we walked through the streets and hoped on the Underground. 

Despite a very filling breakfast that morning, our primary goal was working our way through a Christmas market over to a taco truck on the Thames near the Tate Modern museum.  That was it.  It’s likely because I have a small obsession with Mexican food.  Well, that and we had nothing specific to do.  (Yes, we can talk about how leisurely a holiday overseas really is.)

 

My friend had hyped these particular tacos, though he did claim that they were small, snack-sized bites.  So, we ignored our full stomachs as we pressed on towards the river.  And then, as promised, a bright turquoise food truck emerged in front of us – and a queue of people too.  Clearly, these tacos were going to be everything promised. 

 

But, they were hardly bite-sized.  An order of tacos (I split the Pulled Pork tacos with my boyfriend) included two, soft-shelled tacos, and each one was a big, sloppy, incredibly delicious mess.  We sat at the picnic tables setup in front of the food truck, listening to a street musician with a great voice (though slightly annoying commentary between her songs).  We had no choice – the tacos were just too much to walk and eat.  The mess was worth it though.  If it wasn’t embarrassing, I would have licked the box they were served in. 

Then, of course, we headed to the Tate to use the restrooms to wash our hands!  Afterwards, it was time to head to my favourite place in the city – The Tower!
