Forget Yorkshire pudding, Shepherd’s pie, and hold your bangers and mash. London has redeemed itself from its doldrum days of dull food and has transformed into a mecca of epicurean variety. Down a flat white and snag a baked good at Fleet River Bakery before heading to A.Gold for a scrumptious roast chicken sandwich with the works. A weekend pilgrimage to Borough Market is a must, as is a trip to Tayyabs for a taste of traditional Pakistani cuisine. For a weekend splurge, make reservations at the Kensington Wine Rooms (or really go for it at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal) for mouth-watering meals that almost eclipse their carefully crafted wine lists.
