I love food. My goodness do I love food. London is an amazing city and full to the brim of incredible places to eat. These are my favourites!
Jane Roe Kitchen
Jane Roe Kitchen
A tiny little restaurant on Old Street, a few doors down from the Easy hotel with the most incredible veggie burger I have ever eaten. A brioche bun filled with roasted onions, aubergine, rocket and delicious halloumi accompanied by skin on fries. I love the interior of the Jane Roe Kitchen too with its vintage rustic feel and lots of old nick nacks. Perfect for a chilled out delicious dinner with friends.
This family run restaurant lies just off Oxford Street and has a small but perfectly formed Lebanese inspired menu. The Halloumi or Falafel wraps are heavenly, my sister and I ordered both and swapped half! All dishes arrive in reused cans or mess tins which is very cool and I can't wait to go back.
I discovered this restaurant on a recent blogging trip and fell in love. We had brunch and were able to try a host of dishes from the brunch menu. I highly recommend the granola and the avocado on toast. The atmosphere is great and the decor is beautiful. It is close to Tottenham Court road so perfect for a little breakfast before a day of homewares shopping.
I discovered Whitecross Street Market when I went to BritMums Live in 2015 and my friend Lucy and I arrived early and were feeling peckish. The food market hosts a range of different cuisines and I dare anyone to walk through without being tempted by some of the dishes. We had Falafel salad and took it off to the Barbican Centre to eat in the sunshine. I have just realised most of the dishes I have mentioned are vegetarian. I am not veggie myself but a huge fan of healthy tasty food and very often will choose a vegetarian option. That said my next restaurant features ALL THE MEAT!
With a few restaurants dotted across London you are rarely too far away from a Bodeans. This classic American BBQ joint is wonderful and really authentic. My brother is a huge foodie so after we attended Masterchef Live 5 years ago we popped to Fulham to visit Bodeans and were so impressed. The beef brisket was melt in the mouth and they had possibly the best mac'n'cheese I have ever tasted! We have American diners in Northampton but they are nothing compared to these places. Go prepared to leave with a full tummy and an empty wallet!
Hopefully when I visit London next I can put a few more favourites on my list. Where should I go next?
