10 of my favourite foodie finds in London this week

1. Fish and Chip Shop in Upper Street Islington. It may not have a beach front location, but this upmarket fish and chippery does one of the best battered fish I have had in London.

2. Finding out about all things pheasant at Jamie Oliver’s Pheasant Masterclass with Gennaro Contaldo, Andy Appleton and Jon Rotheram.  Check out my Facebook page with the latest photos.

3. Sipping a latte in an old Victorian toilet. Welcome to Attendant Cafe in Foley Street, Fitzrovia – one of the quirkiest coffee spots I have ever been to. Coffee lovers will love it here.

4. Finally trying the macarons at Laduree . At £1.70 per macaron they are pretty pricey but they are definitely worth it for the occasional treat. The salted caramel flavour comes highly recommended.

5. Getting in touch with my Nordic side at The Scandinavian Kitchen – a cheerful cafe in the heart of Fitzrovia. They serve a great selection of food from all over Scandinavia including open sandwiches, Smörgåsbord, herrings and my favourite brown cheese.

6. Sunday roast at the Spaniards Inn – one of London’s oldest pubs. It oozes charm and character with its open fires, low beams and intriguing nooks and crannies. There’s no surprise that Keats spent a lot of his time writing an Ode to a Nightingale here.

7. Hoxley and Porter – one of the newest themed bars to hit Upper Street in Islington. Is this a bar or upper class dining carriage?

8. The Little One in Primrose Hill – possibly one of London’s tiniest coffee shops. The Monmouth coffee here is superb.

9. Trialling a new cookie recipe – White Chocolate Chunk and Macadamia cookies. Check out the recipe here.

10. Last but not least Hawker House for the ultimate street feast – review to come…

    I found a great Indian restaurant (Babur) around the corner from me in Honor Oak Park. Simply brilliant food, plus a suggested wine match for each of their main courses. Very happy with this discovery!

    Masala Zone is a chain of indian restaurants throughout London. They serve up authentic street food but in a restaurant setting. The most common dish is a thali, designed I think by an award-winning indian chef. It’s worth a visit if you haven’t been already, and very reasonably priced (for London at least!).

    I’ve read your blog for a while now, and it’s so refreshing to read what feels like a very genuine and honest account of your travels and foodie experiences.
