The Best World Cuisine in London

The Best World Cuisine in London

The UK’s capital is recognised around the world for its cultural diversity, and its vibrant gastronomic offering is just one consequence of the populations' combined heritage. With something from everywhere and something for everyone, few cities can compete with London when it comes to world food.

Whether you’re craving a nostalgic taste of Asia or you’re interested in trying new dishes from Russia, Europe, or Africa, you’re sure to find the flavour you’re looking for among London’s bustling streets. 

Read on for world cuisine hotspots in London:

1. Cigalon – for a taste of Provence

For authentic Provençal cuisine, head to Cigalon on Chancery Lane. The food is classic French – think côte de veau, pieds et paquets, and salade Niçoise. We love this spot a little more for what’s downstairs – descend to Baranis, an elegant cocktail bar serving traditional French drinks and a paired-back food menu.

2. Stein’s – for a taste of Bavaria

With the unique atmosphere of a German beer garden, Stein’s serves authentic Munich beer and wine alongside a menu of classical Bavarian food. Try a traditional Bratwurst, Currywurst, or Rindswurst, or venture further into the menu and sample something a little more unusual. Each dish is executed perfectly, so you’re sure to find something that suits your taste.

3. Texture – for a taste of Iceland

Fronted by Icelandic head chef Aggi Sverrisson, Michelin-starred Texture offers a Scandinavian-inspired menu of light dishes, made using the finest ingredients available. Menu-regulars include lamb, cod, and langoustines. For a real flavour of Iceland, choose a dish with skyr, the increasingly popular fermented yoghurt.

4. Z.O.I.L.O – for a taste of Argentina

Head to Z.O.I.L.O on Bond Street for Argentinian small-plate dining. Think empanadas, sweetbreads, and grilled octopus. Settle in, order a carafe of Argentinian wine (it’s all they serve), and prepare for an influx of traditional flavour with every bite.

5. Andina – for a taste of Peru

Michelin-Guide-listed Andina Shoreditch celebrates the ancient culture of Peruvian Andes communities. Peruvian-inspired dishes include a selection of surprising ceviche, a Peruvian seafood dish traditionally made using raw fresh fish cured in citrus and spiced with chilli or other seasonings. The offering at Andina boasts something for everyone, including vegetarian and vegan ceviche!
