First, let’s talk eating (obviously). Perhaps the single best way to enjoy a city, eating and drinking at a special spot is my favorite activity, second only to shopping.
Want an unmatched view of the city with some of the best modern British cuisine you can get your hands on? Check out the Sky Garden
, located at the top of the iconic Walkie Talkie building. Looking for the ultimate boujee experience? The Arts Club
gives you all the glitz and glamor you could ask for, with several amazing eating establishments right at your fingertips.
Known for being a major leader in the tea industry, the Fortnum & Mason has a chic, very London restaurant
that serves Afternoon Tea and more right in the heart of Piccadilly. A very London spot, innit? The Ivy
is also worth checking out if you’re craving quintessential British vibes, with a touch of Asian and new-wave in their dining experience.
Now let’s be clear–British food is JUST okay. What makes this city special is its host of multicultural cuisines. There’s a reason that England’s national dish is Chicken Tikka Masala!
In that vein, one of my favorite spots for Asain food I’ve ever had is London’s Uli
. Fresh, inspired and a fun, clean vibe, this spot is truly a gem. Another is Sumosan Twiga
–the trendy Japanese food spot with live music and dancing.
