Musings: My London Foodie List…

I love food. Food is fuel. I love finding out about new restaurants as they might be ‘cool’. But most of all I love eating with friends, catching up, and just trying something new. I live in London, potentially one of the best places in the world for food (I’m biased). There is somewhere new opening up every week, but there are places that have been here for years. Here is my ever-growing list of places I’ve been and places to try:

Asia De Cuba
Barbecoa, St Paul’s
Big Easy – The shrimp is to die for…
Bob Bob Ricard – Press for champagne.
Bubble Dog

Byron – Not my favourite burger chain, but not bad if you’re out shopping and want a bite. Surprisingly the chicken caesar salad is AMAZING. 
C’oq D’argent
Chez Bruce
Chiltern Firehouse
Chino Latino
Chop House
Crazy Bear
Dinner by Heston Blumental
Duck & Waffle
Flat Iron

Franco Manca – Cheap, great fresh pizza but they don’t take reservations so be prepare to queue if its busy.
Gaucho, Tower Bridge – Amazing steak with a gorgeous view of an iconic London landmark; perfect for those special occasions or if you just fancy something different. 
Gilgamesh – The honey lamb skewers bring a tear to my eye as they were just SO tender… 
Holborn Dining Room
Honest Burger – Honestly a really good burger and they come with fries – wahey!
Iberica, Marylebone or Farringdon

Las Iguanas – I love the tapas, so varied and the cocktails are fresh and tasty too (Make sure you get there before 7pm as they’re 2 for 1). 

Lobster Roll Deli
MadisonMy favourite London rooftop bar and they do really good food. I’d always make a reservation if you’re thinking of coming here – the queues on a Friday night in summer are ridiculous. 
Meat Market
Meat Mission
Mr Foggs – This place reminds me of the pub in Harry Potter, its pretty much a real life Leaky Cauldron. 
Nu Bar
One Aldwych
Radio Rooftop Bar
Red Dog Saloon


Bubba Gump on Santa Monica pier… Take me back please.

Rivington Grill
STK London – The steak is a little salty for my liking BUT it has a great party atmosphere. Perfect for a birthday dinner with the girls or guys!
Searcy’s, Gherkin
Searcy’s, St. Pancras Grand
Sexy Fish
Shanghai, Dalston – Great authentic Chinese – Has karaoke too!
Sky Lounge
Sticky Wings


Sometimes you just need wings in bed…

The Breakfast Club
The Don
The Hoxton Grill
The Hoxton Pony
The Mercer, EC2
The OXO Tower
The Table
Yard Sale

Let me know if you manage to try any of these or if you have any suggestions?

  2. There’s a Japanese BBQ where you cook your own food somewhere around Chancery Lane. Food is really good but it’s a great experience as a whole.
