Brasserie Zédel

Brasserie Zédel

Hidden gem. It looks just like a small bistro from the outside - but go inside and downstairs and it's a cavern of french decor from the early 1900s. It's quite beautiful. The dining hall is massive. They have a special vegetarian menu which you have to ask for. Service and the food was perfect. They have special music events that are very popular, it's like being transported back in time since the atmosphere is so authentic. I would book a table to avoid disappointment. Read more...

Fire & Stone Covent Garden

Fire & Stone Covent Garden

The pizzas are quite delicious and they have a bunch of veggie options. It does get very, very, busy. So be prepared to wait, but they do take bookings so I would full on recommend that. The reserved tables are also seem to be in a quieter area of the restaurant. The staff are very attentive, despite it being a very busy and crowded restaurant. Food arrives quickly. Never had a problem here. If your in the area, and in the mood for a pizza with a bunch of toppings, I recommend. Read more...

Vapiano la Défense

Vapiano la Défense

International pasta chain, where you queue and order your pasta or pizza which is made in front of you to order. Having been to Vapiano in virtually every country they operate, it's highly recognizable and worth the trip to la Défense on it's own. The service here was notably slower than in other countries I've experienced, but also the first place where I've found them sell Risotto - which I had and was delicious. The staff can speak English but you have to be clear. I noticed that a lot of the people here were unusually picky about every ingredient they had in their meals, when I was used to most people just picking from the standard stock menu. Read more...

Pizza Pilgrims, Kingly Court

Pizza Pilgrims, Kingly Court

Simple, convenient, reasonably priced, satisfying pizzas. Enough said really. It gets very popular in the evenings and getting a table can be hard. The pizza selection is simple but high quality. It's nice to come here for lunch, as Kingly Court has a lot on offer. Read more...

Timberyard

Timberyard

A coffee and workplace setup with character in central London area. Amongst all the tourist filled places in the area, this place has some charm and character. A good place to work with the wifi and regular service, this place fills with laptop users promptly. Seems to be dog friendly as lots of the clientele bring in adorable little pups. Read more...

The Green Room

The Green Room

Opening with a great two-for-one deal, this newly constructed wooden hut style spacious restaurant is a welcome addition to the London Southbank / Waterloo area. Read more...

Mudchute Park and Farm

Mudchute Park and Farm

There is usually something to see here all year round in all weather conditions. The goats in particular as well as the small horses seem to enjoy getting human attention. I highly recommend going to the large Asda just round the corner and buy a bag of seeds and carrots to feed the animals. The carrot is a popular food among them all. Read more...

Pizza Union

Pizza Union

Really fast and really delicious pizza, so cheap, so satisfying. I can't say enough good things about this place. You can pick from a prepared menu or create a custom pizza with your own ingredients. Read more...

Chipotle Mexican Grill

Chipotle Mexican Grill

They're everywhere, but just as well, as I could eat this all day. Sofritas is the most amazing invention ever. Read more...

Vapiano, New York

Vapiano, New York

Same menu, same crowd, same style as the rest of the world. This is why it stays popular. This seems to be one of the only ones in the US let alone New York. That said it's just like the ones in London. Read more...
