If you go to London, you know that there are so many places to go to and so many things to see, that one may often times get overwhelmed. Well, the same goes for food and places to eat. With the intention to make your trip the best it can possibly be, here is a list of the top 5 places you can stop by for a bite of food or a drink.
1. Borough Market
Located close to London Bridge, this market is full of fresh produce. The reason it’s number one on this list is because this is the perfect place to go to for a light snack or brunch. Even though they mainly sell fruits and veggies, there are various stands that sell waffles, french toast, pancakes, sandwiches even a variety of omelette dishes. It can get crowded around 11 or 12, so make sure you go earlier- that way you don’t have to deal with the crowds and can get first pick. The bonus of coming to this market is that it’s a nice walk.
2. The Anchor
In the area of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and feel a bit hungry, but don’t want to waste too much time dining? The Anchor restaurant is right around the corner. They have pleanty of tables and space, so seating shouldn’t be too difficult to find. They offer a variety of dishes and are best known for their delicious fish and chips. The atmosphere is very cosy and pleasant and the service is good. You won’t spend too much on the drinks either.
3. Tate Modern Cafe
Located inside the Tate Modern Museum, this cafe has surprisingly decent prices for coffee and/or a quick snack. A good place to stop by if you’re looking to snack or grab a quick sandwich. They offer mainly breakfast foods but they can be pretty filling. The coffee is good and the best part is the view!
4. Porky’s BBQ
This is a very American (Tennessee) themed restaurant/ bar. If you’re in the mood for a few beers and some delicious barbecue or burgers, then this is the place to be. They offer different kinds of meals, but their specialty is barbecue and burgers. The place is full of posters and different signs. They also have a beer-pong table set up and often organise beer-pong tournaments. Like I said, American themed.
5. Bon Gusto
If you’re in the area of Buckingham Palace and sick and tired of eating fish and chips, stop by Bon Gusto’s restaurant. Here you can find European cuisine, mainly Italian. The atmosphere is casual and cosy and the food gets served fairly quickly. They offer Italian dishes such as lasagna, pasta, pizza but they also have other types of dishes and offer a good breakfast menu.
