A London Eater’s Guide

Eating poorly in this city is simpler than eating correctly since it might be challenging to know where to begin and where to go; it is crucial to understand what to try and where to acquire it. This book will help readers properly comprehend and better navigate a city where it is feasible to eat very well. It will also simplify avoiding tourist traps and moving beyond the conventional understanding of what is considered “excellent.”

Welcome to Big Smoke, one of the fascinating dining destinations in the world.

One of the great European world capitals for dining and drinking, London is a metropolis of sport, music, politics (and shady politicians), and history. Thanks to money and active, nomadic youth, London has long been one of the world’s most petite creative culinary capitals. This guide, however, is not a beginner’s dream because London’s cuisine did not improve overnight in 2010.

The city’s most intriguing modern kitchens, Michelin-starred restaurants, natural wine bars, and tiny plates are all recommended in this guide. It will list the top pubs, curries, English breakfasts, dim sum restaurants, freshest fish and chips, smoothest espressos, and creamiest ice cream.
