Eating With Gusto

Gusto Restaurant
Earls Court Road - London, UK
On our Christmas Day walk across London, we met a very nice couple from Australia named Phil and Zoe.  They're also staying at the Presidential Apartments in Kensington (just a few doors down from us), and on their recommendation, we visited a nearby restaurant called Gusto to have breakfast.

Gusto is right across the street from Earl's Court Station.  It's very cozy and comfortable and I loved it from the moment I walked in.  There are sofas set up with bug cushy pillows and tables where you can sit and have coffee or something to eat.  There's a small dining room in the back with table and chairs, and there are books laying around throughout the restaurant that you are welcome to read during your visit.

Phil recommended a dish that was made with poached eggs, tomato sauce and cheese, but he couldn't remember exactly what it was called.  When we mentioned it to our server, he knew exactly what we were talking about.  It's called Shakahuka, and I think it was the tastiest breakfast I ever had.  It was still sizzling when it was served to me in the skillet, and every bite was heavenly.  We are definitely coming back here again before we leave.
