London is one of the world’s greatest gastronomic cities and you can enjoy unique cuisine from many different regions and countries. It’s always fun to try some local food as well as some great British classics such as a full English breakfast, fish and chips and a traditional pie.
Breakfast like a King at The Wolseley, London’s ultimate breakfast venue where the Kedgeree (smoked mackerel and egg) can and should be enjoyed at any time of the day. Alternatively, how about a ‘Full English Breakfast’ with a twist at the Pollen Street Social which will also stand you in good stead for the day. Other treats include mince and tatties at Dean Street Townhouse, venison scotch egg at the Harwood Arms in Fulham, fish and chips at Poppies on Hanbury Street and pie and mash at the Square Pie Company in Old Spitalfields Market. Finally, if you’re spending a weekend in London, Sunday indulgence in the form of a proper roast is an absolute must and at the Trinity in Clapham you’ll find one of the best with a fantastic Aberdeen Angus sirloin a highlight.
Fine dining experiences will not come much better than at 3 Michelin starred establishments such as Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in Chelsea, or Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester in Mayfair. Take your pick from a bevy of celebrity chefs' restaurants. A love of the finest, freshest ingredients is shared also by stall holders at the city’s myriad farmers’ markets where there is an abundance of fresh produce grown and produced within 100 miles of London. One of the most well known food markets is Borough Market just south of the City where you’ll find great meat, fish, poultry, eggs, breads and cakes and many other delicious homemade products and seasonal produce. Try some rhubarb, a key ingredient in wonderful traditional British desserts such as rhubarb crumble and custard or pick up some award-winning cheese and cider for a picnic along the Thames.
