The 100 best dishes in London

From the achingly trendy to the reliably timeless, tuck in to our top 100

By Time Out London Food & Drink

September 2019: The Thai spiced rice salad served at Kin + Deum in Bermondsey tops our latest selection of to-die-for dishes in London’s restaurants, closely followed by the sauerkraut and cheddar croquettes at Lino in Clerkenwell.

Other covetable plates include the manti dumplings with smoked aubergine at Turkish high-flyer Yeni, the prosaically titled lobster crumpets from Rovi (cousin of Nopi) and the classic curry puffs at Singaporean street-food peddler Old Chang Kee. But it isn’t all about savoury stuff. For afters, we recommend the brown bread ice cream with popped corn at Orasay in Ladbroke Grove, while the hot chocolate dispensed by Le Café Alain Ducasse on Coal Drops Yard is just fabulous.

At last! It’s Time Out’s comprehensive countdown of the capital’s most coveted plates. In a food scene as hot as London’s, decision fatigue is real, so we’ve agonised over the city’s menus for you – recording the dishes to die for at London’s best restaurants and moveable street food stalls.

Scan below and you’ll find superlative signature dishes, upmarket Michelin fare, drop-dead marvellous dude food, restorative brunch plates and indulgent sweet treats. From the achingly trendy to reliably timeless, tuck in to our top 100 below.
