5 Must-Try London Food Experiences - Pies and Puddings and Everything Nice!

Whether you are a seasoned foodie or a curious traveller, the London food scene is not something you want to miss. With a rich culinary heritage and modern dining experiences, indulging in delectable dishes in London will not be disappointing even to the most sophisticated palate.


Fish and Chips

An integral component of the London food experience is fish and chips. This dish dates back to the 19th century and it emerged from London's East End where fishmongers began selling deep-fried fish alongside freshly-cut chips to locals. Now it is a classic dish served as a staple of British cuisine. You get a large portion of crispy battered fish, typically cod or haddock, with a side of fluffy golden chips seasoned with salt and vinegar. This classic dish is great comfort food that embodies the essence of the British culinary atmosphere.


Afternoon Tea

Don't let the name mislead you. Afternoon Tea is a splendid meal option you can indulge in at luxury hotels like Pan Pacific London. Any restaurant in London, even a South East Asian Restaurant London, happens to serve Afternoon Tea recognizing its traditional significance. The Afternoon Tea tradition was born in the 19th century when Duchess Anna, a close friend of Queen Victoria's invented the custom. The meal consists of a charming assortment of freshly baked scones with clotted cream and jam, finger sandwiches and soft buttery pastries served alongside a pot of tea.


Sunday Roast

Your culinary adventure in London is incomplete without this exciting meal. A Sunday Roast is a spectacular meal that is typically served on Sundays as a traditional ritual. Its main feature is roasted meat such as beef, chicken, turkey, lamb or duck with gravy. Roasted potatoes, peas, carrots, parsnips and condiments like mint sauce or redcurrant sauce accompany this dish. A Sunday Roast also consists of Yorkshire pudding, a savoury pudding made with a batter of flour, eggs and milk. This fluffy pastry is traditionally flavoured with roasted meat fat.


English Breakfast

The iconic 'English Breakfast' has transcended borders to become an international cuisine, but there's no better place to savour it than in its birthplace, London. Indulge in this hearty dish guilt-free, as it's the perfect excuse to enjoy all the carbs you desire in one satisfying meal. This singular dish comprises fried bacon, poached or scrambled eggs, black pudding, grilled tomato, baked beans and toast served with jam or marmalade. Top that up with tea, coffee or orange juice.


Sticky Toffee Pudding

A classic British dessert that you must try in London is Sticky Toffee Pudding. Do you like cake? What if your cake was a pudding? Sticky Toffee Pudding is a moist sponge cake infused with finely chopped dates and smothered in gooey toffee sauce served with a dollop of ice cream or custard. The rich flavors of caramel, dates, and milk blend harmoniously in this pudding, creating a heavenly combination that delights the senses. The dessert's appearance is equally enticing, with its dark brown sponge cake glistening under a velvety layer of toffee sauce.
