Best Food in London

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

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.


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

  • 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

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

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

  • Scallop Shui Mai
  • Steamed Vegetable Dumpling
  • Spinach ball with Prawn and Cuttlefish
  • Spicy Pork Szechuan Wonton
  • Crispy Duck roll

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