2016 brought some amazing food to the London restaurant scene and if you don’t eat anything else in London ever again, here are 10 amazing meals you need to eat in 2017.
Not only is Pizza Union’s double pepperoni pizza ABSOLUTELY delicious, at just £5.95 it’s an absolute steal. It’s thin, crispy and at a pretty sizeable 12 inches, it’s definitely one the London’s best cheap eats around! Their garlic sauce is highly recommended for crust dunking too.

Think of the best sandwich and burger you’ve ever eaten … put them together … and times it by 10. That’s how good the patty melt is. Between 2 pieces of toasted, buttery, malted bread is a crushed burger, stuffed with sweet, caramelised onions and squirty, fake cheese. Big enough description for you? Oh yeah, and as with everything in Dip and Flip, it comes with its own pot of gravy for dipping. Full post here.

3. Buttermilk Blues Pancakes, Outsider Tart
Many places in London do American pancakes, but not many do them as authentic and delicious as Outsider Tart. They’re served fat, fluffy, and covered in butter and real maple syrup; not to mention they’re the size of a dinner plate. They come in stacks of 2 (short), 3 (regular) or 4 (long haul) and you’ll definitely want four once you’ve tasted one. Whether your waistband can manage them is another thing.

The London drink taking the internet by storm. Thick, hot, steaming drinking chocolate topped with a layer of toasted marshmallow fluff so thick the spoon gets stuck. Find it at Camden Market. Click to play the video below.

Egg and soldiers are taken to a whole new level at Duck and Waffle. Two runny eggs are baked in gruyere cheese, double cream, mushrooms and truffle oil. Obvs comes with bread for dipping for too! One of richest breakfasts you’ll probably ever eat, not to mention with a bloody amazing view. Judging by the amount of cheese and cream, it’s probably your daily calorie intake gone. In a good way.

Sticky toffee pudding is probably THE dessert of all desserts. Chocolate purists may disagree but until you’ve had this one from Temple and Sons don’t make a decision just yet. Soft, syrupy sponge with salted caramel ice-cream and slathered in a hot sticky toffee sauce.That was a lot of ‘s’s! It’s so sweet, warm and comforting and will put you in a sugary coma that is well worth it. Sorry chocolate pudding lovers, this one trumps all. Click to play the video below.

If you’re a fan of pulled pork than this burger in Brixton is one you need to try. The 16 hour slow cooked BBQ’d meat is piled high in a yellow bun (baked by the local prison) and topped with candied bacon, slaw, and even more BBQ sauce. It’s juicy, meaty, and melts in your mouth. If you like a beer with your burger it’s bring your own booze too! HOORAY!

A mixture of three hot, molten kinds of cheese is served with bread, meats, potatoes and truffle honey for dunking! In the centre of Spitalfields market is Androuet; a cheese filled restaurant with wooden tables, blankets to keep warm, and loads of carbs. Any cold weekend day calls for this cheesy, decadent meal! Full post on Androuet right here.

Bad Brownie’s salted caramel version is fudgy, gooey, squidgy and bursting with the golden salty stuff! Everything you want and need in a brownie, these guys know what they’re doing. If salted caramels not your thing, (doubtful) the jaffa cake one is recommended too. Can be found at most good London food markets.

The chicken at Chicken Shop is very good, but the apple pie is mind blowing. It’s brought to your table in the dish it’s been baked in, and scooped out into your bowl in one big, fat spoonful. The crust melts in your mouth and the soft apple centre is packed with cinnamon, sugar, and loads of lovely spices. If you go here for dinner, make sure you end on an apple pie high.
