Top 7 Spots for Foodies
by Nina Christopoulou
1. Duck & Waffle
This 24 hour spot has the best of both worlds: an intriguing menu coupled with an astounding view. Located at the top of Heron Tower, think London at your feet when booking your window table. Their signature dish, conveniently synonymous to the restaurant, is an exquisite balance among sweet and savoury and comes with the highest of recommendations.

The multicultural aspect of London’s food scene is undeniable, and yet it is not the easiest of tasks to find genuine flavors that will entertain your taste buds. Punjab is a wonderful exception to the rule, offering traditional Indian food – in the menu you will find traditional tandoori dishes and Punjabi specialties that will satisfy even the strictest foodie around.
It would be shameful not to have the best Fish and Chips joint in London on a Top 7 of foodie spots. That’s why Poppies made the cut! The décor is commonly referred to as kitsch, and yet the food is something they know how to make. So head out to Poppies to get a taste for the most famed British meal out there!

4. The Wolseley
This one is your typical good-at-everything spot. There is not one single option on the menu that will disappoint you, but we would have to add that brunch is what they know how to do best. Londoners have a tendency of raving about Wolseley’s Egg Benedicts, and we would have to side with them on this one.

5. Burger & Lobster
Bookings are not an option in this sort-of-always-packed restaurant, and that is the only downside we can think of. Lobster is their specialty, but their menu does not have a dish that you wouldn’t want to try on to be frank. Out of the three lobster options, our vote is on the lobster roll – a quirky dish that lives up to a foodie’s high expectations!

6. Santa Maria Pizzeria
When it comes to pizza, there are a lot of places that do it well. Santa Maria though, does pizza better than all of them combined. The selection is very generous, with nduja and burrata among the many ingredients you can pick out. All in all, their wood-fired oven does a great job whatever your pick may be.

7. The Breakfast Club
The quirky and cute interior is just a compliment to the mostly-brunch like options on the menu. Yet the star of the show is the Full Monty, a proper full English complete with black pudding, mushrooms, beans and obviously the sausage and the bacon. Can someone call themselves a proper foodie without having given the full English a go?
