London is home to some of the best cafes in the world.
The diverse city that houses people of different cultures brings about a myriad of ideas and inspirations, and this has translated into the exhaustive array of thematic cafes, coffee-making techniques and culinary impressions, and architectural wows.
Good cafes are sprawled all over the British city. From residential neighbourhoods to CBD to the bustling city centre, good cafes are everywhere.
It is an endless quest and we are constantly being awed by new joints with every visit. It took us several years to visit numerous cafes in the city and here’s our picks on London’s best cafes and coffee shops.
Borough Market is one of the largest and oldest wholesale and retail food markets in London. There are many things to see and do when you are on a holiday in London. If you are a food lover, a trip to Borough Market should be on the top of your list. Even if you are not a hard-core foodie, do not drop this off – really, you will not regret.
There are many goodies at Borough Market, but I will not be going into details as it is something that you must experience for yourself. Instead, I will share with you some of the things that you must see, do and eat at Borough Market.
Good Chinese food and restaurants are aplenty in London, but I have always found a general lack of variety in the food they serve. Whilst the food are tasty, finding the same few items on the menu in most restaurants can leave one relatively bored of Chinese cuisine after a while. So, you ask, where can one satisfy a Chinese cuisine craving and be pleasantly surprised by the meal at the same time? Well, if you are willing to splurge a little, I’d definitely recommend HKK London.
When I was planning my trip to Europe last year, I told myself that London must be included in the itinerary. Which is strange because London has never been one of the must-go cities for me. I guess it is partly because of my friends. Many of them are frequent visitors to London, and they have nothing but good things to say about the city.
London is indeed a stunning city. I don’t think I’ll ever love it like how I love Paris, or Barcelona, but I definitely want to come back again to learn more about her.
Regrettably, my stay in London was short, and I didn’t manage to try everything on my list of must-go places. I guess that’s my excuse for going back to London again! Anyway, here are some of the shots that I took, hope you like them!
