Casa Sol - Mexican Food in London?

Yesterday, we celebrated a happy occasion at Casa Sol, our neighborhood Mexican restaurant on Clapham High Street after a "pint" of Beligan blonde at Bierodrome. We were warned that there is no good Mexican in England. Based on Harden's (UK's Zagat), there are seven Mexican restaurants in London?!? Casa Sol wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. Keenan got the chimichanga, a bit too fried; and I got the fajita combo; it was okay. I think Keenan is looking forward to a tasty burrito and bottomless chips and salsa on International Blvd when he visits in May. Until then, Casa Sol will do the trick.

Today is a lazy day in London. I'm making a stop at Sainsbury's, one of UK's many grocery stores, along with Tesco (Safeway), Waitrose, and M&S (Whole Foods), to pick up a few things for our Christmas dinner. Okay, okay, I confess, I've been obsessed with UK grocery stores! They have so many unique items that we don't get back in the States.

Here's some photos from the rest of our flat:

The hallway (Front door to the right, living room down the hall, kitchen and bathroom in the middle of the hallway):

Bathroom (the British are fond of their towel warmer, which is next to the toilet):

Living Room (on my father-in-law's suggestion, we will be getting a small dining set, to be located where the love seat is. Love seat will be placed by the window. Notice there is no TV? We don't intend on getting a TV either. Did you know you have to pay a fee to have a TV in London? More time to read, explore, shop, and blog!):

Kitchen (my favorite room with Bosch frig, washer, a dishwasher!):

Office/2nd Bedroom:

Master Bedroom:

Happy holidays everyone! With Love, Lily
