The Enticing Foodie Scene in South London

London has developed a vibrant foodie scene over the past few decades after centuries of traditional British cuisine dominating the scene. This has been spurred by the influx of immigrants from different countries who have influenced the tastes of locals with their tasty and spicy offerings. This is visible more in south London where there are plenty of delicious options in areas such as Clapham, Fulham, Greenwich and even Richmond. At some of the food outlets you can get incredible global cuisines that will titillate your taste buds. Some of the best options can be found in this area such as Adam Byatt’s Bistro Union offering tasty snacks and Trinity offering high-end modern European dishes. You can enjoy freshly sourced French light lunches at the Dairy in Clapham or a Michelin-star dinner with traditional British dishes served with local ales at Harwood Arms.


Apart from these expensive restaurants in South London, you can also find less expensive food at the Banana Tree in Soho that serves fresh Cambodian dishes and you can go to Wahaca in the Covent Garden and Soho areas that offers innovative Mexican street food. The extensive food market in Southbank offers street food and also fresh produce such as at Arabica Bar that specialises in fresh baked breads and vegetarian dishes. The other options include Spanish Affaire at Boqueria in Clapham and Brixton that specialises in small plates. Jamaican jerk chicken is amazing as it is part of the Caribbean food offerings in Brixton.

Cheap Food Options in South London
Borough Market, Southwark: This market celebrates Britain’s indigenous foods being part of the resurgence of good food in the country. The market thrives from Thursday to Saturday when its stalls offer free samples to all visitors enabling budget travellers to satisfy their hunger without any cost by going round the market and tasting different foods. The market also features some permanent businesses which are ideal for food conscious budget travellers. The various food outlets in the market include Brindisa Grill that offers chorizo sandwich: smoky, hot paprika-packed sausage topped with fresh rocket and juicy piquillo pepper, on a char-grilled olive oil-dressed bun; Roast-to-Go which is a take-away kiosk offering scotch eggs, bacon butties and roast beef sandwiches along with half-baguette filled with fried egg, proper bacon and black pudding; and Baxter’s Café and Furness Fish stall.

If you are visiting London and would like to explore its various attractions particularly its foodie scene, it would be best to stay at The Montcalm Brewery Hotel on Chiswell Street London as it offers a strategic location in the heart of London close to various places of your interest and the important tourist attractions, as well as providing luxurious accommodation with best facilities.

Southbank: The streets behind riverside promenade offer many places for eating well on a budget such as at The Table, Southwark Street that serves real food prepared from real ingredients, excellent coffee, savoury tarts and salads. The Real Food Market behind the Southbank Centre offers stalls such as Stewed & Baked, Bhangra Burger, Churros Garcia and the Arancini Brothers that offer different types of hot and cold takeaway food.  The Swan at the Globe Theatre on Bankside is a brasserie restaurant that offers a menu consisting of a limited number of affordable appetising dishes such as Cotswold Legbar poached eggs on toast and a daily savoury tart with chips and salad as well snacks like scotch eggs and sausages cooked in rioja.

For staying in luxury in a spacious accommodation it would be best to choose London City Suites that is designed to provide maximum comfort and is ideal for both tourists as well as business travellers. It is located strategically close to most attractions and the business district of London.

Maltings Café: It offers a restaurant and a deli-café at Tower Bridge that serves Italian menu including pasta dishes and mains such as a Neapolitan sausage and bean stew. It procures superior seasonal ingredients and treats them to produce high quality dishes. It offers posh takeaway salad boxes, excellent soups, sandwiches and baked goods.

Franco Manca, Brixton: Redefining the concept of good pizza, it uses sourdough pizza bases, brick pizza oven, and mozzarella made to an Italian recipe on an organic farm in Somerset to create the best pizza as its blast-0ccoked base is elastic and nicely charred and the tomato pulp is vivid.

Brixton Market
Rosie Lovell: There are a number of interesting food outlets in Brixton Market including Rosie Lovell’s deli-café, Wild Caper, Ms Cupcake, Japanese restaurant, Curry Ono and the Goodbench Coffee shop. Rosie’s shop and café offers good food such as sandwiches and salads which are a brilliant red pepper, dill and walnut oil tabbouleh. It also offers pies, tarts, sausage rolls, one-pot meals and cakes.

Lido Cafe, Herne Hill: This smartly renovated café is a great place for breakfast, lunch or just for enjoying a slice of fresh, fragrant carrot cake. You can enjoy Stornoway black pudding and roast tomatoes on toast, homemade burgers and fishcakes, or Denhay cheddar macaroni cheese while sitting out on the patio overlooking the sparkling pool or even indoors. It is one of the places serving a sustainable mackerel bap with tartare sauce.

Dosa n Chutny, Tooting and Croydon: This place is more of a café than restaurant offering a menu that includes standard tandoor oven and curry dishes, specialising in South Indian cuisine which is famous for being light with sensitive spicing. The dosas are made from a finely-ground rice and lentil batter mix, fried on a flat griddle like a crepe, served with liquidised, frothy and refreshing green coconut “chutney”, and sambar which is tamarind, tomato and lentil dahl cooked down into thick, fragrant gravy.

The other splendid foodie places in south London include Mirch Masala at Tooting, Croydon, Norbury and at various other locations; The Breadstall at Clapham, and The Mien Tay at Battersea and Shoreditch .
