I did a poll on my Instagram @eatinguplondon, in regards to whether you’d like to know about my current favourite restaurants in London and the answer was yes, so hope you enjoy. Tag me and let me know if you visit any of them 🙂
Madame Pigg – A new restaurant located on Kingsland Road in Dalston. If I had to pick a restaurant where I could dine every night, it would no doubt be Madame Pigg. People may say I’m biased as it’s my brother Adams restaurant, however he serves up the most delicious tasting food that leaves me just wanting more. With all 5 star reviews on google I can definitely see why. They serve a hearty Sunday roast and a week night menu serving seasonal British food. The menu changes weekly, a few favourite dishes of mine have been the mushroom arancini, lamb rump, charred leeks and the tiger prawns just to name a few.
Jose Pizzario – Located on Bermondsey street, this is Jose Pizarro’s third restaurant in London. With the menu consisting of fresh and authentic Spanish small plates. The restaurant has a romantic, cosy feel about it and the atmosphere was just lovely. My favourite dish was the Iberico pork, it was full of flavour and dipped in the pisto (tomato & aubergine) was delightful. Of course had to go for the traditional padron peppers and croquetas. I can never not go anywhere and not order these.
Minnow – You’ll find Minnow right on Clapham Common. This cute little bistro is the place to relax and dine in for hours and not feel uncomfortable. It’s easy to spot before you’ve even got there, as they have the most beautiful flower display around the front of the restaurant. I really enjoyed the rueben sandwich with truffle fries. Also, the aubergine crisps are definitely worth ordering. Minnow is a great restaurant for any occasion, any time of day, brunch or dinner.
La Muse – A popular spot of mine when I lived in the area of Highbury. A quaint little bistro specialising in French cuisine. We sit in here for hours as we love to start with some wine before sitting down ordering. We usually go all out and get three courses. The food is just heavenly. I’d happily travel across London for a meal here. Make sure you save room for the creme brulee.
Angelina – Just opened this month, Angelina combines two countries cuisine being Japanese & Italian. I absolutely loved Angelina, couldn’t fault the food or service. We had the eight-plate sharing menu with dishes including unagi risotto, crudite of tuna, prawn & bream, finished off with black sesame pannacotta. I’d highly recommend the Italian wine pairing to go along with each course. Can’t wait to return.
I’d love to know your favourite London restaurants at the moment. Let me know in the comments. G xx
