13 foods to fancy in london

  1. Afternoon Tea – originally meant for the wealthy social classes of England, now, peasants like you and I have the chance to experience this. It’s typically a light meal in the late afternoon, consisting of finger sandwiches, scones, cakes, and of course, tea.

  2. Bangers and Mash – also known as sausage and mashed potatoes, served with some sort of gravy.

  3. Beefeater Gin – alright, so not technically a food but the Beefeater Distillery is definitely worth checking out if you want to learn more about their gin.

  4. Churchill Arms – this one is more to check out the restaurant. The exterior (and interior) is lined with flower boxes. Definitely one of the more unique spots I’ve been to. Plus, they have some pretty good Thai food.

  9. Indian food – London has no shortage of restaurants serving Indian cuisine. Check out Dishoom but prepare to wait.

  10. Scotch Egg – hard-boiled egg, wrapped in sausage meat, coated with breadcrumbs, then deep-fried.
  11. Sunday Roast – roasted meat and roasted potatoes, typically served with Yorkshire pudding, on a Sunday, hence the name.
  12. Yorkshire Pudding – not actually pudding as I initially thought, but this if more like a super chewy piece of bread that you’d eat with your Sunday roast.

  13. Wagamama – popular chain in the UK that serves Japanese-style noodles, like ramen, udon, and yaki soba. They recently opened up a few locations in NYC.
