I always wanted to go to London ever since I watched Secret Diaries Of A Call Girl and Harry Potter perhaps even the movie What a Girl Wants by Amanda Bynes (I still think she's cool no matter what people say. I'm still rooting for you Amanda! ) . My mom always told me that food in London is overpriced and expensive. But thanks to Dan, I ended up dining in the best restaurants and places that might be common in London but is not present in New York.
Surprisingly, I had a hard time squeezing into garments that were scheduled for ootd shoots for London Fashion Week.
So here's a list of places that I love...
Best Fish and Chips - Golden Union Fish Bar. It was the perfect amount of saltiness, right amount of beer batter. It was very crisp too.
Best Italian Restaurant - San Carlo Cicchetti. The Pata Negra and the Pumpkin Risotto was something different from the Italian Cuisine I know. Its also the best place for celeb sightings.
Extreme budget dining- Nando's. The peri-peri chicken is very succulent and well-flavored. They also have an array of sauces to try.
Best breakfast food- The Breakfast Club. The pancakes were light and tasty. It reminded me of Clinton StreetBakery in NYC.
Best Gelato - I have a sweet tooth. I torn between multiple restaurants. We loved Hawksmoor, Amorino and Harrod's Ice cream Parlor. Harrods is normally packed with tourists, but it is still worth the visit.
Best Lamb- Berners Tavern. The lobster rissotto is also worth trying.
Best English Pies- Mother Mash in Soho. Its cheap too.
Best Fish Pies- The Windmill. it's hard to find but it's worth getting lost for.
