London, United Kingdom

"In people's eyes, in the swing, tramp, and trudge; in the bellow and the uproar; the carriages, motor cars, omnibuses, vans, sandwich men shuffling and swinging; brass bands; barrel organs; in the triumph and the jingle and the strange high singing of some aeroplane overhead was what she loved; life; London; this moment in June.” ― Virginia Woolf

From gastropubs to food halls, multicultural cuisine to markets, London is one of my favorite destinations for food, but also for its rich history and incredible art. Every trip to London is an adventure, whether it’s to meet up with friends, head to the theater or explore the ins and outs of contemporary British cuisine. Though I usually stay with friends, I’ve also found my way to some of London’s best/wildest/weirdest hotel rooms in my travels.

Over the years in London, I’ve mastered the night bus, hired a bicycle in the park, read the entirety of Neil Gaimen’s “Neverwhere” on the Tube, eaten pie and mash in Greenwich, navigated Borough Market, shopped in Camden, experienced high tea, tasted jellied eels, escaped from Harrod’s, fell in love with a painting, sipped Pimm’s Cup at Wimbledon, waved to a Princess, and danced all night.

Gastro-Eats: A Savory Weekend in London

The resurgence of classic British cuisine isn’t a new thing. The popularity of the “gastropub”– traditional pub serving high quality, gastronomic food – surged through the mid-1990s into the 2000s, inspiring the nose-to-tail movement and shedding diners’ inhibitions around the world. Today, there are hundreds of gastropubs in London, serving edgy, farm-to-table versions of old school classics like blood pudding, …

In the UK: English Breakfast Three Ways
