Many people lament British food.
Deep fried, boiled, or over-cooked are your standard misnomers about British cuisine, and rightly so for a few decades.
But no more.
London is on the food map baby, and there are loads to try when you get over here.
Insider magazine has compiled their list of the top places to eat in London, and we can agree with many of their top picks.
One thing we would suggest are some of the top food markets in London.
Many of these aren’t open daily, so it’s worth checking to see where and when you can grab some lovely nosh from these places.
Some we would suggest:
Num num. Located right near London Bridge station and the Shard, this venerable market has loads of yummies on offer. Not only is it a standard food market, but there are also loads of fresh, hot stalls of food to tempt you as well. Try to go mid-morning during office hours as it is generally quieter then.
Berwick Street Market
Located in Soho amongst throngs of media companies, this 300 year old market is anything but old. Smack dab in the middle of the road, this daily food market caters to many of the people who work in the newly painted offices. Open from 11am to 3pm, you can find loads of foodie options here.
Head to where the hipsters hang, for a truly unique feast. The Boxpark Market is on the edge of Shoreditch, and close to Old Street station. Loads of food and drink options in a market that is open late with some cool bars. If you’re lucky-you might be able to get into the Shoreditch House across the road.
