Curries, scones + peach cocktails in Soho.

Husni was signing his lease for his new flat today, so we head over to his new ‘hood, known for its coffee, and sat around in a coffee house / barber shop while we waited for him. The Barista was from Australia, so we discussed Melbourne coffee for a while and he told us London is the global hub of coffee at the moment. I think our Melbourne-snob hackles got up a bit – he explained that while the London coffee scene is at the forefront with technology, the scene is saturated in Melbourne so anywhere you go will have good coffee. That pacified us a little… (even though we know he is probably right.)

Next up was lunch at the Indian YMCA, a tucked away canteen full of amazing curries served cafeteria style. The boys went a little overkill as they always do with curry – buffet style is probably not a good idea for those whose eyes are bigger than their stomachs.

We dropped into an arthouse theatre to watch Wes Anderson’s new film, the Grand Budapest Hotel, and then into Gail’s Artisan Bakery in Soho for some scones and coffee.

For some reason everyone was wearing blue tops and black pants.

Fraser met us there and we moved on to Barrio Central for some Happy Hour cocktails. Husni ordered some sly tequila shots, I had a peach + rum cocktail.

The boys decided they would blur all my photos from then on in, so here is the last one of them for the night.

Afterwards we head to another few bars around Soho, until Husni decided on absinthe (which ended the night fairly quickly…)
