Brunch & Football

This past weekend the LSU game was on at 11:30 am. It's supposedly one of the earliest starts in Tiger Stadium history. I'm sure there were people out tailgating all night all, which we were not a part of. Instead with the game so early, we decided to go out for brunch.

We I decided on the Londoner. I've been waiting to try this restaurant out seemingly forever. If you remember, we tried to go there for the Women's World Cup final, but they were packed. We've planned on going before, but it seems each times things came up. But this time we made it happen!

Since we were planning on being there for a while we started with an appetizer. (Not very brunch-y, but very good.) You'll have to excuse the blurry and dark-ish photos to come, but I think you can get the idea.
Chicken & Brie Sandwiches
So, to start with, the boy and I split chicken, brie, and spinach sandwiches. They were supposed to have a sun-dried tomato spread, but since the boy isn't a tomato fan we go it on the side for me. And yes, there were delicious.
Corned Beef Hash
And for my mail meal above I went with the corned beef hash. It's hard to tell from the photo above, but this dish was HUGE. I probably ate half of it and brought the rest home for leftovers. Although I could have probably eaten a little bit more I had to save room for dessert,
Sticky Toffee Pudding
which was sticky toffee pudding. This was seriously amazing! While I didn't quite lick the plate, I did make sure to get every drop with my spoon. Seriously, I would probably go there again just to have this.

So overall, the Londoner definitely lived up to my expectations, and I'm sure we'll be going there again. And of course, LSU won as well, so hopefully we're on the way to another national title!


  1. Wow, that does look huge! I can see why you only had half. But it looks delish. :)

  2. I wanted to try the Londoner but thought it was more bar than restaurant so I was afraid there would be smoking. I know it was early but any signs of being able to smoke inside?

  3. Oh my gosh! That pudding looks soooo good!

  4. Oh my gosh! That pudding looks soooo good!
