The most delicious food in London, you say? Surely, AmoChef, that’s a matter of taste, quite literally? Well, yes, it is, and it’s a hard call, especially since London is abuzz with diversity.
In London, there’s choice galore. Nowhere more so can you find traditional pub grub up the road from Ethiopian cuisine, which is sandwiched between a late-night Lebanese restaurant and a café serving delicious vegan cakes and pastries.
Fancy a Turkish kebab at 2am? No problem. A sausage naan breakfast roll, fresh from the tandoor oven on the way into work? Sorted. A Buddha bowl and matcha green tea for lunch? Done.
Everything is possible in our capital city.
So whilst it’s near on impossible to choose from the tens of thousands of cafes, restaurants, pop up food stalls, markets and takeaways in London, here’s just a few of our favourites.
Keeping it Traditional with Fish and Chips
Nothing says British fare, quite like fish and chips – the more salt and vinegar the better. Throw in a side of bright green mushy peas, and we’re in heaven.
You’ll find a chippy on pretty much every high street, but for us, by far the best is the Golden Hind, hidden on a side street off the bustling Marylebone High Street. They’ve been serving Londoners since 1914, so they must be doing something right.
Choose from the cod and chips classic or try their homemade salmon fishcakes. Eat in or takeaway, the choice is yours. The Golden Hind operates a Bring Your Own Booze policy too, meaning this is a cheap, but oh-so tasty night out.
The Best Curry in London?
Another bold statement, but if you’re looking for exquisite, authentic Indian food, served in a restaurant decorated in the style of the original Bombay cafes, then hunt out your nearest Dishoom. There’s five dotted across London and each one is a delight from the moment you step inside. (And this is the home of the famous sausage breakfast naan, plus, as with their whole menu, there’s a vegan option, too.)
Everything, from the pre-dinner cocktails (Bollybellini, anyone?) to the small plates, slow cooked biriyani and mango kulfi is divine. And a trip to a Dishoom without trying the House Black Daal is a trip wasted. Slowly cooked for 24 hours, the taste of this must have signature dish of soft, dark, spiced lentils will never be forgotten.
A Food Market with a Difference
Nothing beats eating outside with a group of friends, all experiencing different foods. Except perhaps, if it’s done somewhere that has sustainability at its core.
The Mercato Metropolitano food market in London’s Elephant & Castle area serves up food from all around the world from an array of food stalls.
Each stall might be different, but they all share the same passion – that of sustainability. Be that zero waste, small scale farming, championing local food producers or being plant-based – the message is the same, one of the most minimal impact on the planet.
The stalls here change frequently so head on down, you’re bound to find something you love.
Having Someone Do It All for You!
Of course, enjoying food doesn’t have to mean eating out, or even calling in your nearest takeaway. It can mean hiring a private chef to cook for your special occasion or romantic meal.
The Chefs on AmoChef are passionate and talented. They take care of everything from helping you plan your menu, to preparing and cooking your meal and even the clearing up afterwards.
Check out the amazing London-based chefs, and you could be enjoying a restaurant quality meal, expertly prepared and served to you in your own home. There’s no need to leave your front door!
