Best Food in London

… on a quest to find THE best food of every London joint!

Romeo’s Sugar Free Bakery

Who ever said traditional marketing is dead never had a walk on Upper Street and passed through Romeu’s sugar-free bakery!


The Barn

Not everything is pink and has a happy ending in this blog. This attractive place ended up not being as good as I expected.


Cinnabon – Piccadilly Circus

Disclaimer: If you’re counting calories, ignore this post! I know that I’m all the time preaching about healthy food so I’m blaming Christmas and cinnamon for this post!


Aladin Brick Lane.. again!

As promised on my first Aladin experience a couple months ago and as soon as I had some friend visiting me in London, I brought them again to this place.

  • Shredded Crispy Chicken Breast
  • Green Curry Chicken
  • BBQ Peppered crispy Duck

A Thai restaurant visit without ordering fish! Now that’s a first on this blog!

  • Aubergine caviar
  • Couscous Royal
  • Seafood Tagine


I used to advocate that “if a restaurant needs a 3rd party to promote vouchers and similar deals… they’re food is probably not good enough to sell itself!” … well I was wrong (yes, it happens now and then) and I’ve been surprised in London many times!


#06London Food Tips

If you are a food enthusiast, do yourself a favour and check some of the deals websites once in a while. They come in handy, in particular for foodies living in London! They are another alternative to save some quids and hit some fancier places. Usually, the vouchers have a long expiration date so there’s no need to rush and you can plan ahead. While sometimes they’re not cheap, they’ll give you the best quality/price ratio for that expensive restaurant you’re dying to go..

  • Nasu Dengaku
  • Miso Soup
  • Crab Tempura
  • Salmon and Tofu Teriyaki Bento


Awww.. hosting friends in London – great stuff… sometimes! Definitely not when your friends are so demanding of where and what they want to eat. So, my mission? To find a good, non-expensive place to eat sushi in Soho (Good and non-expensive sushi in London? aw… tourists! So cute!)

  • Chicken Phô
  • Crispy Fried Sea Bass
  • Stir Fried Aubergine
  • Crispy Fried Sea Bass with Lemongrass & Chilli
  • Stir-fried Prawns with Cashew Nuts
  • Chargrilled Chicken
  • Stir-fried Duck with Ginger & Spring Onions
  • Stir-fried Green Leaves with Garlic

Mien Tay

Hello there Vietnamese food – I wonder where have you been all my life?!


Muriel’s Kitchen

OK, I ADMIT IT! This one I went for the appearance and size… I’m only human… a glutton one!

  • Tuna tostadita
  • Tentáculos de pulpo
  • Coconut Mount Piyashiri
  • Piece aburi
  • Nikkei sashimi
  • Assorted Petit Fours

Chotto Matte

If you’re a Japanese aficionado and you also follow the food trends of London, you probably have stumbled upon a Peruvian restaurant. So why not the have the best of the two worlds? Introducing Nikkei food: The perfect marriage between Sashimi & Ceviche.


#05London Food Tips

Keep an eye on London’s food venues social media channels. Twitter, Facebook or whatever network they are, just follow them! I do NOT have the sort of money to be spending on Michelin star restaurants… yet you stumble upon discounts quite often.

  • Hummus & Pomegranate
  • Potato & Leak
  • Mackerel with Coriander
  • Grilled Ibero Puma
  • Blanquette of Veel
  • Cod Fish flakes
  • Camembert Mousse
  • Mango and Lime sorbet
  • Merengue with chocolate and toffe


I always thought the Michelin star biz to be a rich people propaganda move. I get that a restaurant deserves some recognition to distinguish it from others – fair enough. But 2 stars? I mean, what on earth can you bring more on my plate that would make you a 2 star?! Apparently… a lot!

  • Rugbrød - Danish Rye bread
  • Cinnamon bun
  • Cranberry and Coffe Rye Danish Bread
  • Apricot luxury bread
  • Walnut bread
  • Vanilla roll

  • Chicken Shatkora
  • Lamb Katmandu Delicacy
  • Aubergine Bhaji
  • Saag Bhaji

  • Steamed Vegetable Dumpling
  • Spinach ball with Prawn and Cuttlefish
  • Spicy Pork Szechuan Wonton
  • Crispy Duck roll
  • Fig and Blackcurrant

I’ll cut up to the chase. This is an amazing place and I fell in love for it.

  • Poached eggs on toasted multigrain bloomer
  • Chocolate and Peanut butter Pancakes
  • French toast with apple, cinnamon and maple syrup

The Breakfast Club Hoxton

I can’t vouch for the remaining Breakfast Club locations in London but as far as the East of London is concerned, and if you are breakfast lover, Hoxton is THE place to visit!
