A Foodie’s Tour of London
When I travel I like to go on what I call a “foodie’s tour” of the city. London is more than mushy peas and shepherd’s pie. Any foodie can tell you that London’s foodie scene is vibrant and diverse.
Exploring London’s foodie scene requires nothing more than an a
underground pass and asense of adventure. The stop on the west side of London should be Bao Korean restaurant. There is absolutely no wrong pick at Bao. I would recommend starting confit pork bao and the spiced lemon soda.
The next stop should be Paxton & Whitfield in Soho this fromagerie is a cheese lovers paradise. The staff is so knowledge about all things cheese that you can describe the mouthfeel and texture you are looking for and they will make delicious selection. After take a stroll through soho you should check out Berry Bros & Rudd whose wine selection is superior. The staff is knowledgeable and will go the extra step to ensur
e you select the best wine.
For fish & chips I highly recommend Golden Union Fish & Chips. Even a small serving means you end up with a piece of fish large enough to hang off your plate. For after dinner drinks head over to the speakeasy Happiness Forgets and order a “Writer’s block” then challenge the bartender to go crazy and make something off menu based on your mood.
Do not make the mistake of leaving London without a trip to Greenwich market which is a Unesco World Heritage site. Here you will some of the best street food that London has to offer. If you spend more than 10 gbp before your stomach is filled then you are doing something wrong. London is a foodie’s paradise.
