London Calling...

I'm off for a solo three day weekend in London Friday very early.

I'm booked in Bloomsbury, quite close to the British Museum, so no matter what happens I know where I can spend unlimited hours (and it should be soggy the whole time I am there).

I'm thinking Murder One (sadly closing its doors at the end of the month), Forbidden Planet, and Foyles for bookstores. Japan Centre for bento boxes and accessories. The Spice Shop or a closer spice shop if I can find it for vanilla beans, although one of the locations apparently has a cute cookbook bookshop/cafe across the street from it.

I also hope to make it to Golders Green to check out some Judaica shops and perhaps visit the Jewish Museum or take this walking tour, depending on the weather.

Any recommendations for Indian/Japanese/Vietnamese/English Pub places in an area easily reached from central?

Any other shops you think I should check in this limited time?

I adore curries (even vegetable curries) so I always make it a point to get some vindaloo and buy lots of overpriced chutneys at Harrod's to embellish my own curries. Have fun! I'm not jealous, by the way. At all. Nope, no jealousy here.
