Guest Post from Late for Reality – Top 5 Places to Eat in London

Top 5 places to eat in London

We are flying back to the UK today!! So I will be back to see you all soon, and I promise there will be a host of posts all about our trip! Think travel tips, foodie posts, attraction reviews plus a ton of videos over on our YouTube channel. But for now…

I have the totally awesome Jade from Late for Reality as our last guest post, and I’ve saved the tastiest for last! Jade is a lovely Facebook blogging mum of mine and I am so happy to be hosting her over here on our blog. She is going to talk to you all about her favourite places to eat in London, and I love posts like this because she hasn’t chosen your typical highstreet chain restaurants, instead she is talking about some smaller independent places that you might not know about otherwise. If your looking for different places to eat in London then your going to love this! So over to Jade…   

Jane Roe Kitchen

A tiny little restaurant on Old Street, a few doors down from the Easy hotel with the most incredible veggie burger I have ever eaten. A brioche bun filled with roasted onions, aubergine, rocket and delicious halloumi accompanied by skin on fries. I love the interior of the Jane Roe Kitchen too with its vintage rustic feel and lots of old nick nacks. Perfect for a chilled out delicious dinner with friends.

Cookhouse Joe

This family run restaurant lies just off Oxford Street and has a small but perfectly formed Lebanese inspired menu. The Halloumi or Falafel wraps are heavenly, my sister and I ordered both and swapped half! All dishes arrive in reused cans or mess tins which is very cool and I can’t wait to go back.

Percy and Founders

I discovered this restaurant on a recent blogging trip and fell in love. We had brunch and were able to try a host of dishes from the brunch menu. I highly recommend the granola and the avocado on toast. The atmosphere is great and the decor is beautiful. It is close to Tottenham Court road so perfect for a little breakfast before a day of homewares shopping.

Whitecross Street Market

I discovered Whitecross Street Market when I went to BritMums Live in 2015 and my friend Lucy and I arrived early and were feeling peckish. The food market hosts a range of different cuisines and I dare anyone to walk through without being tempted by some of the dishes. We had Falafel salad and took it off to the Barbican Centre to eat in the sunshine. I have just realised most of the dishes I have mentioned are vegetarian. I am not veggie myself but a huge fan of healthy tasty food and very often will choose a vegetarian option. That said my next restaurant features ALL THE MEAT!


With a few restaurants dotted across London you are rarely too far away from a Bodeans. This classic American BBQ joint is wonderful and really authentic. My brother is a huge foodie so after we attended Masterchef Live 5 years ago we popped to Fulham to visit Bodeans and were so impressed. The beef brisket was melt in the mouth and they had possibly the best mac’n’cheese I have ever tasted! We have American diners in Northampton but they are nothing compared to these places. Go prepared to leave with a full tummy and an empty wallet!

Hopefully when I visit London next I can put a few more favourites on my list. Where should I go next?

    Right I’ve been to Whitecross street market and Bodeans but the others I’ve not even heard of which means I’m going to have to go on a food pilgrimage over the coming weeks and try them all out!
