1. Taking inspiration from the bustling food courts in Singapore, Hawker House night market, located in an old factory on Pritchard’s Road, has a lively atmosphere and top-notch food. Specialising in street food, I was a particular fan of the epic Lobster Mac and Cheese from Bob’s Lobster and the tasty chilli sliders from Breddos Tacos. Get there before it ends.
2. Sager & Wilde wine bar on Hackney Road for its wonderful wine list, laid back ambience and super friendly staff.
3. Brickwood Coffee – the newest addition to my favourite coffee haunts in South London. Located just opposite Clapham Common Station, Brickwood serve quality Caravan coffee and a selection of freshly baked pastries and sandwiches.
4. No Christmas is complete without an advent calendar to count down the days until Christmas. If you’re a dark chocolate lover, I’d recommend the giant Lindt Dark Chocolate Calendar.
5. The third Tom’s Kitchen in Canary Wharf – offering a British brasserie style menu using seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. There’s also a deli for great coffee and express breakfast and lunch options.
6. Enjoying french cuisine at a food bloggers Christmas dinner at Aubaine in Marylebone.
7. The Sparkle and Celebrate Hamper from Selfridges – the perfect gift or treat for any foodie. With a delicious range of typical Christmas goodies including panettone, Christmas pudding, wines and chocolate – I can’t wait to throw a dinner party and start using it.
8. Happiness Forgets – a tiny basement bar in Hoxton Square which oozes with romance and charm. After a couple of cocktails you won’t want to leave. This is a popular hangout in Shoreditch so bookings on weekends are essential.
9. The crowds can be a massive issue on weekends, but if you find a quiet weeknight to visit Winter Wonderland you may actually get into the festive cheer. It may not be high quality cuisine, but the Bavarian Village has good options for German beer, mulled wine and of course German sausages.
10.Melrose and Morgan in Primrose Hill – a greengrocer and kitchen which offers a delicious range of freshly prepared food and artisan products.
