Eats: London

Eats: London, London, England (B)

No matter how near or far you are from home, a recommendation for a good restaurant or bar is always nice to have. EATS is a collection of places that I’ve enjoyed during my travels.

I came across this place in my search for traditional fish and chips in London and was hooked (so to speak) because of The Golden Hind’s 100-year history dating back to 1914. The portions are hearty and reasonably priced, and its simple menu also includes salads for non-fish eaters like me. Although it lacked an Old World pub feel, the small cafe felt untouristy, catering to people of all ages from older couples to families with young children. The service was warm and friendly, plus you can BYOB if you want to enjoy beer or wine with your meal.

From the moment you finally find the nondescript entrance to Mr. Fogg’s (look for the dapper doorman), you’ll embark on a delightful journey back in time. The cocktail bar is inspired by the 1873 novel Around the World in Eighty Days, a theme that’s woven throughout its whimsical décor – from balloons to bicycles to birdcages – and creative cocktail menu, which reads like a novel itself with seemingly endless options that are organized by spirit. Libations are a bit pricy, but easy to justify after you see the beautiful presentation served by staff dressed in period costume. Judging by the line that wrapped around the corner (and the standing-room only inside), Mr. Fogg’s seems to be popular among locals and tourists alike. And on Friday and Saturday afternoons, the establishment’s Tipsy Tea is a fun twist on the English ritual. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
