    Food in London!

    We all know British food is not that good, but we can all agree that the foreign food in London is truly exquisite. Lets discuss some great places from diffeent cuisines to visit!

    I studied just outside of London for a year, and to be honest my favorite meals there were a traditional English Sunday Roast and a Full English Breakfast. I always looked forward to the Sundays we would all go for a cheap roast at Wetherspoons and leave stuffed enough we felt as though we'd explode, or lazy mornings after a night out where we'd head to a café for a fry up hang over cure.

    I like the Caribbean fair best, but I always enjoy a good curry. That said there are some nice bits of British fair - fish and chips (hold the vinegar) and a nice roast. Oh! A ploughman's lunch is good. But yeah I most enjoy the Caribbean places.

    I enjoyed some pretty decent Italian food when I was in London in 2011. However, I tend to enjoy Italian food wherever I go, ha ha.

    Yes, you're right--British cuisine is terrible. However, thank God for the immigrants who had some good sense to carry their cuisines along with them. Cuisine from Jamaica, where I am from, is getting very popular over there. Indian cuisine is also quite good in London as well.

    I usually eat at Indian and Italian restaurants in London. There are some very good Italian places around Piccadilly Circus. There's an Indian vegetarian restaurant at Chapel Market where you can eat all you want for 5 or 6 pounds. The food is very good and extremely filling.

    Re: Food Options, Quality And Choice in London!

    Personally I like English food, and like mjervey I am a recent convert to the English Breakfast. As far as I know, a lot of the bad reputation English food has is due to WWII, food rationing was pretty severe and parts of it lasted until the mid 1950s after which I guess things took a while to catch up.

    That said, there are indeed a million great options and you can find cuisine choices from all over the world. One of the best meals I had on my last trip to the UK was at a place called Pho Cafe in Oxford Circus. It's actually a small chain, with half a dozen or so locations, but the food was really good. I had the bún rather than the pho and highly recommend it if you like Vietnamese, or just soup in general.

    These roasts people speak of sound really good. I'm wanting to try an English breakfast as well. I've heard good things.

    My friend has told me there are several good chinese food buffets in London He told me he'd take me there if I ever decide to go there. He also told me some of those restaurants offer some curries (which is funny since he's half indian), I even asked him: ''How come they serve curry there as well?''. He said: ''Well, curry is also used by other asian cultures, like for example Thailand''. So it really looks like the chinese food restaurants over there happily embrace a very varied set of gastronomical influences

    I don't know about WWII, but having been there rather more recently... several times I can say that reputation is fairly deserved. That doesn't mean there aren't good points - there are - but generally it isn't what I'm looking to have.

    Many of the Chinese who own and run these Chinese buffets are ethnic Chinese from Malaysia, Singapore and other countries in Southeast Asia who are also familiar with the spicier cuisines of their adopted countries. Many Chinese born in Singapore, for example will happily eat Indian curry with naan and roti! It's just a sign of the incredible mix of cultures that come together in that part of the world.

    That said, I never really liked the native English cuisine as I do the much more vibrant cuisines of the various immigrant groups who have settled in London.

    I spend a lot of time in the Bloomsbury area of London, and yes, it's a challenge to find a good meal at a reasonable price. Many of the pubs serve very good, filling meals for under 10 pounds -- my favourite is the Lamb on Lamb's Conduit where they make an excellent steak and ale pie with lots of veggies on the side for about 8. Very filling. There's an excellent tapas restaurant on Charlotte St. called Navarro's where two can dine for around 30 (with wine) if you choose carefully. Also, try the Turkish place, Sofra, on Tavistock near Covent Garden -- they have a tasting menu for under 15. Wagamama is a noodle house with a fun atmosphere and reasonable prices -- they have several locations in London. And if you're looking for a quick snack, all the train stations have cornish pasty stands which are filling and good.

    colmarwatson! I can see that you have spent really nice time at London with your family. That's really a very nice thing. I believe that there are a lot of the amazing places in London to visit, As you mentioned. That just always makes me feel so great whenever i explore the city. I guess that we'll get the chance to visit that once again.
    The tours from los angeles to grand canyon are a perfect way to explore LA.

    Hand and Flower Hotel is the beautiful hotel of London. I have been there about few months ago and had a great time there. It offers best services, friendly staff, neat and clean rooms to their gussets. So I suggest you should go there once and enjoy there delicious food.

    London life may not be getting any cheaper, its appetite for great value food has never been bigger. With the cost of rent and travel taking ever-growing bites out of our salaries, knowing where to find London’s best budget restaurants is more important than ever.
