On our last visit, we did little extra research to find a few super interesting places to eat in London. Let me tell you, we had some of the seriously tasty grub! Now we’re here to share it with you for your next trip! All of the locations can be found on the map so you can visit yourself! Let’s begin.
Eat Tokyo, Soho
Our first day in town and we were craving some sushi. There’s not much choice other than Yo, Sushi! where we live, so we wanted to give somewhere else a go to broaden our sushi horizons and prepare ourselves for our upcoming Japan visit.
Located in the heart of Soho, Eat Tokyo is pretty cramped inside but full of tables so you’ll have no problem getting seated. The menu is huge and the bento boxes are really good value. You get a LOT of food for your money! We plumped for sashimi filled sushi boxes. This turned out to be a mistake for little me, and I soon found out that I don’t much get on with sashimi. Despite this we had a nice meal and were happy to have figured out what we do and don’t like in the sushi world!
- Eat Tokyo
- Voodoo Ray's
- The Diner
- Cereal Killer Cafe
A new street food market has popped up in Camden. KERB has just opened and features a wealth of food stalls. There’s something for every palate. 7 days a week, 364 days a year. We were super overwhelmed by choice but opted for Ghetto Grillz Bagel Bar.
It was what it says on the tin: amazingly tasty bagels! These things were full of filling and extra tasty. We chose the veggie New Yorker and the L.A Chick, which as you can guess, had chicken on it. If you like bagels this is the place to be. The bagels themselves are bought in from Beigel Bake, the famous shop on Brick Lane. Two thumbs up from us!
Pizza. The holy grail of foods. Our favourite. I am always googling to find new and interesting pizza places and Voodoo Ray’s has been on my list for a while now. An english version of a very NYC style pizza joint, Voodoo Ray’s has a permanent home in Dalston and a pop up at Boxpark in Shoreditch, which we stumbled upon after a few drinks nearby.
It was quite late when we got there, but we both scored scrummy slices. A courgette and goat’s cheese slice for me and ham & mushroom for Adam. We were happy bunnies as we perched outside and ate our pizza. This place is a must visit if you’re in the area! Even if you’re not make a special trip. You won’t regret it.
The Diner is a chain of, you guessed it, American-style Diners dotted over London. I believe there was originally just one back a few years ago, but now there are plenty to choose from! We opted for Spitalfields as it was close to our hotel. Hungry for an American style breakfast and a treat before heading back home, we stopped here on our last morning.
The Diner focuses on American diner food as is to be expected. There’s not only breakfast on offer but lunch/dinner too. All manner of food is on offer! We stopped for breakfast. It was a good idea. Banana Pancakes and a Lumberjack breakfast were quickly enjoyed and fuelled us for the rest of the day. We love this place for both breakfast and dinner so hop on over when you get the chance!
Cereal Killer Cafe
We met a couple of my friends for the day whilst in town, and one of them suggested we try a cult cafe. Truly ripped apart in the media for being the death of the hipster, the Cereal Killer Cafe is on Brick Lane. What do you think they serve? Cereal of course! Despite the over-hyped nature of this place, it’s fun to visit for a one off and we both enjoyed our ‘breakfast cocktails’. The tiny milk bottles are the cutest!
This place is really small so turn up early if you want a good seat. Or alternatively buy a random mix of cereals and milk from the shop and make your own at home..we’re definitely going to!
But what about drinks?
We stopped for a drink or two whilst in town, treating ourselves to cocktails and enjoying beers in Soho, Shoreditch and Camden! After reading about it on We Heart, we decided a visit to Cahoots was in order, and we managed to get in despite it being a busy Saturday. A 1940’s tube themed cocktail bar, this place is tucked away in Kingly Court, Soho, and easy to miss. It’s decorated to the nines and even the staff are in character. Amazing, right?
Managing to get standing room at the bar, we went for cocktails that were something new. Mine with gin and something vaguely cherry flavoured and Adam’s heavy on the whiskey notes. We enjoyed our drinks but prices aren’t for the budget conscious traveller! One cocktail each and we moved on to save some pennies, we’d have loved to have stayed all evening though!
In short, we had a cracking time in London and drank/ate some really tasty stuff. There’s so much to choose from in London and we haven’t even scratched the surface of what’s available. We hope you try out some of our suggestions – let us know if you visit anywhere and what you think!
