‘London is on the bucket list for many people. From the history and culture, to the sights and attractions, it is easy to see why it is the destination of choice for so many tourists each year…’
And with another Royal wedding on the horizon, it makes it a popular choice at the moment too. However, one of the best things about London is the food; like a lot of cities in the world, there are an abundance of cultures and their food to experience, as well as some quirky and one of a kind restaurants.
Eating out does add up, especially when you’re out each day at eating out for two meals a day. But one meal could be justified, especially if you are self-catering the rest of the time. If you are on a budget and that sounds like the kind of thing that you would enjoy, then it could be worth looking at getting a serviced apartment, somewhere like https://www.londonservicedapartments.co.uk/serviced-apartments/? for example.
Then you have the choice of cooking when you’re away too. But for the the rest of the time, here are some of London’s quirkiest restaurants to visit. It will make a nice change from the standard options that you might find.
If you are after something a little exotic and different, then Archipelago could be the restaurant for you. With the staples on the menu being things like crocodile and kangaroo, you know you’ll be in for an unusual treat.
If you are looking for one of the most ‘Instagrammable’ restaurants in London, then Sketch is the place for you. With a big theme of pink throughout the restaurant, it is one of the prettiest places, with the food to match. It is a great choice if you’re looking for an afternoon tea.
If you love Asian food, then why not eat it while watching circus acts perform? There are singers, as well as circus acts that will appear at different times as you eat. It is definitely fine dining, and a real luxury place to visit.
If you are a lover of crisps (or chips if you’re not from the UK), then Hipchips is one of the coolest restaurants going. Dedicated to the humble crisp, you can try it in all different varieties and flavours.
The Covent Garden based yoghurt bar is really one of a kind. You can get savoury, as well as sweet servings of yoghurt, as well as Turkish simit bread and soups. From smoked salmon, to stuffed vine leaves or granola and strawberries, there will be something to everyone’s taste.
Cereal Killer Cafe
Why not have breakfast for dinner at the Cereal Killer Cafe in the trendy area of Shoreditch? You can choose from a variety of cereal and milk to have, and munch away. So much fun!
For a completely raw vegan restaurant, Nama is a great place to visit for a tasty lunch whether you’re vegan or not. It is a good location, right by Primrose Hill.
