London is jammed full of fantastic foodie hot spots, but sometimes it’s difficult to separate the mind-blowingly-good from the merely quite enjoyable. We wanted to find the very best – the top places where London’s real foodie enthusiasts go to hang out – so we put the question out the Twitter hivemind and got a deluge of mouth-watering responses. Here’s our selection of the very best:
@ashleyfryer says: Borough Market, obvs. It’s jammed full of independent traders selling high quality and unusual produce, and more happy foodies than you can shake a stick at. It’s always humming and it’s a great for a spot of lunch and some people watching. I go for the cheese & chocolate!
@emmaparrish says: MEATliquor is my fave. It’s a cocktail in jam-jars & meat juices running down your wrists kinda joint, with sand on the floor and rock and blues soundtrack.
@sam_cookney says: Pains me to say it, but I was quite impressed by Brixton market. Good selection of eateries, locally sourced. Although full of trendies and over-priced.
@JohnnyCov says: Fino is a swish Spanish restaurant. Suffers from being underground, but pre-order the suckling pig and go through the awesome wine list and you won’t go wrong. Might be less impressed when the bill comes.
@matofkilburnia says: Mr. Fish in Queen’s Park. Amazing quality fish and chips, not the greasy rubbish one normally gets from a chippy but not complicated either.
Think we’ve missed something out? Enraged that you’re local haunt’s not been included? If so, then drop us a line / vent your spleen in the comments below – we’d love to hear from you!
