If you ask me to name a place I love to wander around in London, my answer would be Borough Market without doubt. This market is especially great in November with seasonal fruits and vegetables. If you ever get there, you can start exploring the market by trying some fresh oysters followed by barbequed corn on the cob or a burger! You can also find lots of freshly made food to take home like pasta, pies, cheese, and bread. The only consideration is that this market is closed on Sundays.

One of the best BBQs in London is located in Soho, which makes it a perfect spot for lunch. Despite of long queues in front of the shop, the service is super quick and efficient. Food is so fresh as it’s being cooked in front of you. My favourite choice is Lebanese chargrilled chicken taouk.

Tongue & Brisket
This little shop serves the food I have always dreamed of: salt beef and tongue sandwiches. The food is very fresh and tasty, and you might get addicted to this place. Believe it or not, all of this goodness costs just a fiver!
Address: 199 Wardour St, London W1F 8JP
Sampa is a beautiful and cosy coffee shop in heart of Clerkenwell, a nicely decorated place that serves fantastic breakfast and of course amazing coffee. I’m so picky when it comes to coffee, but this place blows me away by the quality and richness of its coffee. If you go there for breakfast or brunch, I highly recommend the Herby omelette.

This place has a lovely Moroccan traditional decoration and makes you feel like you are in a different country. Tagine dishes are served on traditional plates, and they are super tasty. The only tip would be to leave room for Moroccan mint tea. I am now more keen to book a trip to Morocco after visiting this beautiful restaurant.

Theo Simple Italian
Finding an Italian restaurant in London is easy; however, finding great Italian food is not so easy. The first thing that caught my eyes after I visited this place was the beautiful, bright, and warm interior design and decorations. After I met the chef Theo in person, I realised how much passion he has for Italian food. Finally after trying the food, it was a big relief that now I have an Italian kitchen in London to recommend to others.
Address: 34-44 Barkston Gardens, London SW5 0EW
This beautiful Spanish restaurant serves the best brunch ever: bottomless tapas brunch. The food and the atmosphere make this place a great choice to spend your weekend eating fantastic Spanish food and cava! If you go for tapas, don’t forget to try their signature dish arroz negro, which is black rice with cuttlefish and squid ink.
Address: Various locations
This place is all about the dining experience. They are not just an Italian restaurant, but they are a branch of a 700-year-old Italian winery in Tuscany. If you love Italian food and if you love Italian wine, then this is a place you should not miss. They occasionally have a wine-matching menu, and they pair your food with a wine from their own winery. This event might look expensive, but you will have a unique experience that lasts forever in your memory.

Asia De Cuba
A beautifully decorated Cuban restaurant in the heart of London offers fantastic and flavorful dishes inspired by Cuban cuisine. Don’t forget to try the Mojito in the can, and as always, I highly recommend you to leave room for doughnuts for dessert.
