The British Banger (above) was the better of the two for me, as the sausage was packed with flavor and the aoli underneath it was well done. Being American, I had to add ketchup and mustard on top too, just for good measure ;-).
The Cumberland looked like it would be the better of the two, but although the fried onions were as good as they looked, the sausage itself didn’t have very much flavor and also didn’t quite suit a hot dog bun – to me it tasted more like it should be with two eggs and some hash-browns.
As we were only a short walk away from Westbourne Grove, we couldn’t help but being tempted by the allure of Ottolenghi, which in my opinion has some of the best cakes in London.
We had our favorite – the lemon and mascapone tart – and also tried a summer fruit tart, which was also excellent.
After that, we were stuffed, and headed home for a nap!
What a wonderful lazy Saturday…
