Did I tell you that I love the food in London. This last week alone, London has three restaurants featured in the San Pellegrino World's Best 50 restaurant list; these include The Ledbury, Clove Club and Dinner by Heston. Not Bad.
So now onto focusing on a new area of London: Angel/Islington.
The area that gives us the third longest escalator in Europe at 60m as well as having more restaurants than days of the year- narrowing this list to five will be difficult.
The hub of London, the welcome point for our European cousins. Kings Cross is an important location and it’s only right that we have good food to welcome everyone.
The regeneration work being put into the area means that restaurants and foodies are excited about the changes and the new places coming in. Some stables are in the Top 5 but thankfully these new additions have made the area a great destination.
Not a bad list and many more places popping up too. Kings Cross is becoming a destination in its own right and no longer a through road. Get ready London.
East London is well known for its curry houses and more specifically it is their lamb chops and fast service. Get in, order your food and before you know it you are out of there.
If you are in east London and Whitechapel then you are probably there for a curry. From Bangladeshi restaurants, Indian and The more popular Pakistani restaurants, there is plenty for all.
The Top 5 when in Whitechapel and the places to go are:
Now, what a time, to be alive!
When it becomes too difficult to choose your top 5 places within a mile radius, you know you are in for a treat. Options are key and in Soho you have plenty. I’ve asked friends for their input on this list and it became quite a heated discussion; so I chose myself and ignored what they said and narrowing it down to 5 was tough.
From stylish and trendy to quick eats and expensive bites, Soho has it all.
My Top 5 (I think) are:
Where I live and work are the two most important food places for me.
Working in Covent Garden ensures that my pay cheque is divided into two, one half is on household bills and the other half, is spent on food. The foodie treats range from lunchtime bites to fine dining in the evening with Laura.
I would like to think that I am an expert in Covent Garden cuisines and where to go and what to eat. However, this was a very difficult one to narrow down to 5.
Let me know if you agree or disagree.
Other notable mentions must go to Homeslice (the biggest and best Pizza around), Flesh & Buns (by the Bone Daddies group) and Dishoom ( huge queues for great Indian food).
Shoreditch. The place where the trendy and cool people eat… and me too. I am defining this area as the station, a bit of Great Eastern Street, Brick Lane and then some.
East is hip and happening with new food places popping up constantly, whilst the classics are moving to the area too.
I asked some experts in the field for help as I am still exploring the area.
So let’s get straight to it.
Shoreditch Top 5:
Friends and colleagues do ask a lot about recommendations, so it seems I have become their resident foodie. I am required to provide knowledge on what to eat and where to go.
I used to live near Stroud Green and would walk past all of these restaurants too and from work. So, I do feel like an expert in this area.
