As you may have noticed, I am out and about all the time. Consequently, I end up eating out often, maybe a little too often, sometimes. Regardless, there are a few places that I go back to regularly – because the food is great and for a great price too. Here’s a list of favourites, in different parts of town.
DF/Mexico – Remember when I went there a few months back? Turns out it’s been one of my favourite Mexican Street food places here in London so far. Definitely worth a visit, the frozen margaritas are delicious and the burritos are soooo good.
Pizza East Shoreditch – I went there a few months ago for the first time and lucky me, I got a discount key-ring. For that reason and the fact that the pizzas are actually really good, I’ve become somewhat of a regular. There is a good selection of pizzas as well as different Italian antipasti and salads. Never disappoints. My only problem with this palce is that when it gets busy, it gets REALLY busy and a little bit noisy. A reservation is advised!
Dragon Castle – I’m not recommending this only because it’s owned by my friend’s family. It must be one of my favourite places to eat Chinese food, as their traditional Cantonese cuisine really is to die for. My favourites being the spicy tofu and the hot and sour soup. Absolutely delicious!
Bone Daddies – Ramen ramen ramen! If I had to pick one ramen restaurant that I’d have to stick to for the rest of my life, it would be Bone Daddies. The portions are large and delicious. My favourite is the kimchi ramen – kimchi, seafood and ramen, all floating in delicious chicken broth. This place also always has cool music, which is a plus for me – I’ve listened to AC/DC and other cool rock and roll bands while dining there before. Amazing! Go as early as possible, otherwise the queue will get too long.
Eat Tokyo – There seems to be an abundance of Asian restaurants on this list but I just can’t help it – I love Asian food so much! Eat Tokyo specialises in Japanese cuisine and it’s become one of my favourites. The menu is varied and you have plenty of options – sushi, sashimi, teryaki, katsu curry and bento boxes. The price is very friendly and I’ve never had a bad meal there. Once again, go early or be prepared to queue, particularly at dinner time. There’s other branches scattered around London, but I’ve only visited the one in Soho so far.
Pizza Pilgrims – Another pizza place, but in Soho. It’s good to know good options in all parts of town, no? Pizza Pilgrims is a small-ish place but queueing is worth it – you can leave your name at the door and go somewhere else for a drink while you wait for a table. The pizzas are very authentic – Neapolitan style, with a very thin crust. I recommend the Nduja, made with Italian spicy sausage.
All this talk of food has made me hungry now. Just need to make sure I don’t eat too much, don’t want to get any heartburn.
Have you tried any of these before? If you have some good recommendations I’d love to know.
