Tasty Dining: London

Since I consider myself a restaurant fanatic, I created a Tasty Dining series for the blog. For those seeing this series for the first time, the Tasty Dining series features 5-10 of my favourite restaurants in each city I have visited.

This time last year, I flew to London and lived in the wonderful hustling and bustling city for two months. Today, I'm reminiscing my experiences there - the shows, the shops, the museums, but more importantly, the restaurants!

If you're planning a trip to London some time soon, make sure to dine out at these fabulous restaurants below. Note: all of these recommendations actually stem from a friend of mine, Amanda, who has a much more impressive list.

Scalini

Italian - Best known for its family style options and environment, Scalini is a popular restaurant in the Chelsea borough.

Tasty Food Recommendation: Ask the chef to mix and match pastas (up to 3) so you can have a taste of many!

Bluebird 

Modern EuropeanIf you're a fan of reality tv, you likely have seen this restaurant before on Made In Chelsea. This restaurant is likely the most popular place to be on a Friday or Saturday night. I loved it so much, I went twice back to back.

Tasty Food Recommendation: Menu changes seasonally but I recommend their pasta dish of course...

The Ivy Chelsea Garden

Casual British - This restaurant is a must if looking for an impressive ambience. The outdoor patio serves as a beautiful setting for a weekend brunch, perfect for the summer. 

Tasty Food Recommendation: Eggs Benedict

Colbert

French - When I think of the best eggs benedict I ever had, I think of this place. This restaurant is the epitome of french. It's cozy and adorable, it makes you feel as though you're in France for a moment.

Fortnum & Mason

British - I couldn't make a London edition of tasty dining without including a spot for afternoon tea! This restaurant is a must if you want to experience the tradition of afternoon tea. Not only do you get finger sandwiches, scones, and tiny dessert, but towards the end of your dining experience you also get additional cakes!
