Com Viet – Covent Garden, London

I’m not sure about you but I have indulged over the Christmas period! The turkey was good, as was the beef, potatoes and veg….I even had a brussel sprout or two! There was plenty left over too which meant that instead of having proper meals, I was nibbling at leftovers, and the chocolate, and the rich fruitcake, and my homemade brownies, and the ice-cream……..eeeek!
My Christmas Dinner......

Followed with homemade brownies and Viennetta ice-cream.....yummy!
By Thursday I was well and truly over the Christmas indulgent food, so I decided to eat out with a couple of friends. I had wanted to try out Vietnamese food and felt that this was the perfect opportunity to eat at a Vietnamese restaurant.

I went to Com Viet, which is based in Covent Garden.

I booked this restaurant via’s an intimate restaurant; if you want to have a dinner party of about 15 - 20 I reckon you could take up a third of the restaurant! However given that it was the Christmas period and most of my fellow Londoners were either shopping the sales or working the sales, the restaurant was not as busy as it may have normally been. But that was a good thing.

The staff were really polite, nice and non-intrusive, which made dinner with my friends all the more enjoyable. The food was really nice as well:

My friend had beef pho....

.....While I had stir fried chicken with lemongrass and chilli and fried rice

Such was my mission not to have any more Christmassy food that day I even tried frog’s legs! And yes, they do taste like chicken……

Frog legs!

I had to end my evening with something sweet; and that meant a stopover at the Haagen Dazs Restaurant in Leicester Square:

Scrumptious apple pie with vanilla ice-cream and caramel

Even with all this eating, I have managed to fit in one or two brief tabata workouts (and my body ached afterwards!); after all I have to make space for my New Year’s Feast!
Hope you all had a wonderful, peaceful and Blessed Christmas x
