One of my favourite places to go is London. Now that we live up in the North West, we don't get to go very often, but when we were down in the South East, we went fairly often. There is so much to see and do in London . . .
Not to mention a virtual world of choice when it comes to eating . . . but it can be a hit and miss unless you really know where you are going. That's where a lovely book like the one I was sent just recently comes in really handy!
Eat Like A Londoner by Tania Ballantine, an insider's guide to dining out is a great resource when it comes to finding a place to eat in the big smoke!
This generous pocket-sized book is a run-down of about a hundred restaurants and eating establishments dotted around the capital of various shapes, sizes and styles. Restaurants are arranged in terms of categories, with chapters covering cult classics. late nights, ‘small & buzzy’, and so on. There are other lists that further segment places by geographical area, places that are more forgiving for the last-minute diner, as well as vegetarian-friendly destinations.
It is well written, well presented, and contains some really lovely pictures of stunningly delicious looking food and dining rooms. This is a book quite honestly written by somebody who obviously knows what she’s talking about. If you are planning on travelling to London in the near future or know someone who is, and you want to gift them (or yourself) with a truly a lovely gift that is sure to come in really handy, I highly recommend this book. With more than 100 handpicked places to cover every occasion from a quick meal to a full on special dinner, there is something in here to suit every occasion.
