Eating out in London Bridge is all about knowing where to look. Magdalen, which is easy to miss on the busy Tooley Street, serves outstanding British food that shows a real attention to detail. Champor-Champor provides Asian fusion cuisine that resists most labels, aside from ‘great’. At café and gallery Caphe House, you can pick up a Vietnamese baguette, called bánh mì, along with a painting, if you want.

Champor-Champor has been on Time Out’s radar long before the South Bank became trendy. With the Shard springing up nearby, it’s no longer off the beaten path, yet still feels like a hidden find.Read more
Tito's Peruvian Restaurant
This family-run London Bridge restaurant aims to showcase Peruvian cooking and hospitality. It's been around since 2003, so can consider itself well ahead of the recent culinary love-in for all things Peruvian. There's plenty of authenticity to the menu. It ranges from homemade Andean-style plantain chips, a house quinoa salad, mixed ceviche platters and shallow-fried Peruvian pork ribs to Peruvian stir-fried rice with chicken breast, soya sauce, spring onion, fried egg and plantain, and pato en aji con frijoles y arroz - a signature dish of whole duck leg served in aji panca chilli sauce with steamed white rice and Peruvian white beans. Desserts include Peruvian rice pudding infused with cinnamon and cloves, homemade lucuma ice cream and mazamora morada - an authentic Peruvian dessert made with the purple corn native to Peru.
