So for those of you looking for a good place to eat in London, here’s a list of a few places I had the chance to visit. The list was composed with the kind help of Ofer, my local culinary guide to London.

Roof top boundary: A nice place I recommend visiting in the evening when the weather is pleasant, since you’ll sit on the roof, in the open air. For dessert you should try the excellent Pavlova. we shared it (5 of us) and it felt like an amusement park for adults.

Kopapa

- DAYS

Food

A good restaurant, very close to the theatres. You can eat a three course mill for 20£ And still catch the show, which in my case was “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert”. The Norwegian cod fish was excellent.

Vinoteca Bar & Wine Shop

- DAYS

Food

A wine bar with an impressive selection of wines and a small wine shop. Excluding one dish, who wasn’t very good, everything we ate was delicious. We especially liked the Char-grilled bavette (medium rare), cafe de Paris butter, chips & smoked ketchup (14.5£).

We opened with a wonderful fennel cream and lemon jelly with a touch of black olives.

For the first course I had the egg dish, which came in a beautiful glass bowl filled with egg mousse and wild mushroom sauce. Inside the bowl rested peacefully a small tasteful cracker. The first bite brought out a sigh of joy, a joy that hasn’t stopped till the last bite. It was a surprising delicious plate.

For the main course I had lamb stake with thyme and tempura vegetables, which was very good but not amazing like the first two plates.

For a side dish I got a wonderful leek fondue soaking in butter and parmesan cheese.

To save the indecision regarding dessert we simply took all three available option on the menu and divided them between us. And so we had a cheese plate,

and excellent coconut cake with white chocolate mousse, lime and blueberry which was served with a refreshing raspberry sorbet,

This is a coffee shop/ patisserie, which I found on a quest to find a real French chocolate. The owner is an Israeli girl. The chocolate was good, the pastry was quite surprising.

Bocca Di Lupo

A fun Italian restaurant located near the theatres. It is open till late, so you can eat after you absorb some culture. So when I skipped a meal in order to get to “Much ado about nothing”, I paid a visit after the show.
