Eating out in London gives you the opportunity to enjoy an impressive blend of flavours from all over the world.

Whether it be Italian, Greek, Spanish, British of course, Indian, American, African...it is all here waiting to be sampled.
When it comes to typical English food, despite popular opinion, there is a great range of savoury dishes and deserts to choose from. One of the characteristics of English cooking is the addition of ingredients from all over the world, thanks to the county´s long colonial and seafaring history.
If you don´t know it already, one thing you will learn in London is the importance of a hearty English breakfast. Bacon, sausages, eggs, beans, black pudding, mushrooms and toast, washed down with a nice cup of tea or coffee.
At lunchtime most Londoners grab a quick sandwich, and it is in the evening that the locals have their main meal. Vegetables and meat predominate, especially beef, and on a Sunday lunchtime the best thing you can do is have a Sunday roast- either beef, pork, turkey, lamb or chicken with its corresponding sauce (horseradish for beef, apple for pork, cranberry for turkey, mint for lamb and bread sauce for chicken)with roast potatoes, veg and Yorkshire pudding. Other highlights of English cooking are shepherd´s pie, meat pie, toad in the hole, fish and chips, and bubble and squeak..
In London you will be spoilt for choice for restaurants offering food from almost everywhere in the world you can think of, as well as fast food outlets, and the famous "gastro-pubs"- typical English style pubs offering modern, high quality food.
