But what’s this? No one actually knows where to go? That’s where you step in: rising above as the foodie god of your friend group and guiding the way to the best culinary spots in London. 

Your friends start cheering, everyone around you starts to slow clap. You did it. You saved the foodie day! Sounds good? Well, then, you’ll probably want to read on and discover Posh Cockney’s London Foodie Bucket List.

All-day foodie fun

Gourmaze: The Tasty Treasure Hunt is perfect for all you scavenger hunt lovers out there. Satisfy your sense of adventure while indulging in hidden foodie gems across London. In your group, you’ll follow riddles sent straight to your phone, and working together to solve them will lead you to find the mystery dishes. This is a fun cross between a food walking tour and an escape room.

Start the day right

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, or so they say. So why not start it off with a bang?!

Cafe Kitsune has a range of French Japanese-inspired pastries. Dining here will have you asking, am I in London, Tokyo or Paris? But don’t worry, you are definitely in London as long as you head down to the Belgravia branch. You have the choice of eating on their mezzanine floor or the sun-soaked Motcomb Street terrace, (sun-soaked-ness may vary based on the weather).

Chestnut Bakery serves up unique and beautiful sweet and savoury croissants and other baked goods you can enjoy alongside your morning coffee. If you like seeing how things are done, then you’re in luck as you may be able to see the bakers at work through a glass window!

Or maybe you’ll be in the mood for something a bit more hearty. Well, in that case, you might want to make your way to Palette London for brunch. Suitable for vegans and meat eaters alike, there are a range of dishes that can satisfy any craving.

Lunch of champions

Hackney Road’s Morito’s menu draws inspiration from Southern Spain, North Africa, and the Eastern Mediterranean. Fresh dishes paired with flavoursome wines will leave you feeling relaxed. If you enjoy vegan cuisine then you’ll be glad to hear about their All Vegan Monday dinner.

I had to slip one in for all the anime lovers. Uzumaki London is an anime-themed Japanese restaurant that brings anime food to life. But even if you’re not a massive anime fan, you can still enjoy hot, delicious ramen in a restaurant with immaculate vibes.

Park Row, home to The Monarch Theatre, pays homage to some iconic heroes and villains in the DC universe. The menu is designed to take you on a culinary and visual journey. This gastronomic show has carefully crafted staging and immersive courses that play with your senses.
