I know, I know, London doesn't have the best food reputation but please believe me when I say, they are trying and it shows! The cuisine is definitely headed towards a French trend. Below are just a few of some of restaurants we ate at.
The Ritz London
We had an amazing afternoon tea here and there was NO disappointment to even think of! Usually when I think of tea time, crustless cucumber finger sandwiches & Earl Grey come to mind. The Ritz London absolutely blew my standard idea of tea time. My choice of tea was delicious ( I chose Passion tea ), the sandwiches, desserts, and scones were good and were constantly being replaced, on top of having a dessert trolley passing by. We left The Ritz full and in need of a nap.
A gourmet burger joint that anyone can enjoy. Fresh squeezed lemonade and their specialty. rosemary salted chips are to die for!!
I visited London for my birthday and had a vision of ringing in my late 20s birthday at The Ritz London. Unfortunately, I underestimated how busy The Ritz is and couldn't secure a reservation. In a scramble, I headed to Trip Advisor to explore other restaurants in the area. Espelette had great reviews and the availability I needed. The restaurant is located inside of The Connaught Hotel in the Mayfair area. So if you're into white table cloths, 3-4 course meals, and posh dining, any restaurant within the Mayfair area is the ticket. I personally didn't order any of the courses but some of the girls did and the food looked and smelled divine! Instead, I ordered spaghetti carbonara ( which was cooked to perfection ) and for dessert, chocolate crunch & vanilla bean mousse. I can admit now, I'm quite happy The Ritz was booked, due to my lack of planning, I was able to find a gem.
If you're a foodie or just love food that's cheap & delicious, Camden is the place to go!! It's a sensory overload, I didn't know where to even start! From fried chicken, pork buns, Chinese, freshly made green juices, there's something for anyone, any taste.
Eating here has become somewhat of UK tradition of me. Don't ask why but who's complaining!? The food is great and the atmosphere is so serene, that you kinda forget you smack dead in Piccadilly Circus aka tourist overload land.
I don't know how we found this place but somehow during one of our nights out we needed a bathroom, somehow ended up at bar, made nice with one of the managers and promised we'd come back and we kept our word. Another restaurant that combines English cuisine with the right touches of French flavor.
Again, these are just a few of the places I've eaten at in London. I truly forget to take pictures at restaurants because I'm so excited for my meal LOL.
