August has seen my first ever Bleeker Burger, the best sticky toffee pudding and vegan Japanese food. Here are five London food finds from August.
Ask most Londoners and they will say Bleeker Burger is in their top three burgers that they’ve ever eaten in the capital. Shockingly it’s taken 6 years for me to eat one and I’ve no idea why. Sesame bun, medium rare meat and loadsa cheese. Really there’s nothing else to it. In a good way that is. It’s super rich, super messy, and super simple. Won’t be waiting for the next one.

Hawksmoor is one of those places that lives up to the hype and does one of the BEST set value menus ever had in London. 3 substantial, brilliant, delicious courses including their signature sticky toffee pudding to finish. Not forgetting the big blob of clotted cream on top. A MUST visit when in the capital, especially on a Sunday for their roast.

Brixton has so much good food to offer and that extends right out to Pop Brixton just a short walk from the station. An outdoor food hub made up of little stalls, a few bars and a load of benches where people sit, eat and enjoy. Koi Ramen is just one of a few places to choose from who specialise in Japanese ramen and THE most delicious gyros. They even do a vegan version if that’s your thing too. Next time? Truffle pizza from Made of Dough.

The best places are always off the beaten track and that’s right for the Jaz and Juls chocolate shop in Angel, North London. Two friends and former flatmates (Yes Jaz and Juls) sell their own flavoured hot chocolates, as well as a full weekend brunch in their little shop. This grilled banana bread is part of the menu and one to try.

5. Tiramisu, Fiddies Italian Kitchen
Don’t expect Michelin star dining at Fiddies Italian Kitchen but good, solid, home cooking. That’s meant in the best of ways. This tiramisu is amazing but the real star of the show is Fiddie himself. If you’re lucky enough to have him serve you on your visit tell him I said hello.
