The best ice cream in London

The best ice cream in London

So you like ice cream? You’re not special. We’re all just big children waiting for a little bit of sweet, cold milk to numb the pain of navigating adulthood. (Even if for some of us it does have to be dairy-free milk.) It’s no wonder there are often massive queues for our city’s best ices. Especially when a heatwave hits.  Want to make sure the cone you’re standing in line for is worth the 30-minute wait ahead of you? Look no further. We've asked ice cream experts from around our office for their favourite places to lick 99ers, chomp on ice cream sarnies, feast on sundaes and neck a scoop or two of premium gelato. The resulting list? Your ultimate guide to ice cream in the city. Check out our sticky-fingered guide to the best cold stuff in the capital. RECOMMENDED: The best brunches in London. 

The 50 best pubs in London

The 50 best pubs in London

London is perhaps the perfect pub city. There’s a boozer for almost every kind of person – even the non-drinkers among us – and they’re a vital part of the capital’s lifeblood. They provide community, entertainment and culture, and not only help us navigate our way around town but give us a place to stop, sit and enjoy the city.  There are roughly 3,500 pubs in London. That might be a shocking 25 percent less than there were two decades ago, but it’s still a fair amount of options when it comes to choosing a place to meet your mates, go on a date, or rock up for a solo drink and have some much-treasured alone time. We’ve tried and tested inns, taverns and pubs across the city to bring you a list of the very finest. Welcome to London’s Top 50 Pubs. Make ours a pint.    RECOMMENDED: Enjoy a cocktail or three at London's best bars.

London’s best restaurants for breakfast

London’s best restaurants for breakfast

Breakfast is truly the most important meal of the day, and luckily for London, the city caters to every possible whim. These days, London isn’t just home to the fry-up, but the ubiquitous smashed avocado on toast, the shakshuka and many more besides. In fact, London genuinely might be the best place to eat breakfast in the entire world. Whether you’re the kind of person who favours a posh restaurant over a greasy spoon, or who champions a caff over a swanky hotel, we’ve rounded up the ultimate list. From morning mezza to croissants and udon noodle bowls – it’s all here. RECOMMENDED: Breakfast’s a little too early for you? Try one of London’s best brunches instead.

There’s even the odd high-stepping special occasion spot for those out on a spree. Here’s our pick of the very best restaurants, cheap drop-ins and coffee shops around Clapham’s main drag.

Aspen & Meursault

Aspen & Meursault

If you like the idea of biodynamic and minimal-intervention wine, but don’t know where to start, then Aspen & Mersault should be your go-to. From the people behind lovely Elephant and Castle neighbourhood wine bar Diognes the Dog, this charming Battersea bar tries to demystify natural wine without any of the ponciness. Take your sip from bottles of accessible classics, vintages and funkier numbers in a super cosy environment (it has a fireplace!).

Market Hall West End

Market Hall West End

This West End sibling of Market Hall Fulham and MH Victoria, billed as the largest food hall in the UK, has a whopping 900 seats. It's got four bars and 11 street food vendors, including, at the moment, Gopal’s Corner, Super Tacos and Hotbox. Housed in part of the old BHS building, just off Oxford Street, it currently features CookDaily’s vegan bowls and BaoziInn’s dim sum, alongside Paradise Slice Pizza, pasta specialists Pastaio, and wrap-stars Fanny's Kebabs. Right now, it's also got Angela Sato's Japanese Yatai, Jian Bing specialist Pleasant Lady, and rotisserie chicken shop Good Birds. Check @markethallwestend for an up to date line-up of the traders.   

The Table Café

The Table Café

Jammed onto the side of an architectural practice in Southwark, this serene Aussie-style café-restaurant is something of a quiet classic in this part of town. Throughout the week, the standard breakfast menu (lotsa eggs and avocado, as you’d expect) is bolstered by waffles and pancakes, plus brunch favourites such as sweetcorn fritters or strawberry French toast. Lunchtime (well, 11.30am) sees the arrival of burgers, fish and chips, bavette steaks, sizeable salads and ham-hock hash with bubble ‘n’ squeak.  From 5pm Monday to Friday, The Table also has its own ‘urban garden’ where you can chill out with cocktails, prosecco, G&Ts, wines and light bites (mushroom ‘super sliders’, pork and black pudding sausage rolls etc). In short, a perfect respite from the hordes at Tate Modern.  

The Parkside Café & Terrace

The Parkside Café & Terrace

Fabulous views of Greenwich Royal Park are a given at this café and terrace spread over two floors of the National Maritime Museum. Pick your table and order at the counter from a menu that highlights dishes from ‘land and sea’: the former might include burgers, pork schnitzel and pulled chicken ‘gyros’ with  pomegranate sauce and tzatziki, while the latter could feature Meantime beer-battered cod and chips, fishcakes or pan-fried sea bass with green beans, fennel, edamame and orange sauce. Kids have their own menu, gluten-free options abound, and they serve Sunday roasts during the autumn and winter. Afternoon tea is another treat, especially if you enjoy gazing over the park’s regal vistas. Also try the Great Map Café on the first floor of the Museum.

Heap's Sausage Café

Heap's Sausage Café

Just round the corner from the entrance to Greenwich Royal Park, chef Martin Heap’s cute little shop and café is a mecca for fans of artisan bangers. Seating is limited and it’s counter-service only, but the punters just keep coming to buy and scoff his terrific comestibles. If you can’t wait, bag a table and tuck into a plateful of bangers and mash with onion gravy, a ‘Lethal Lucifer’ hot dog or one of their hand-crafted pies. The all-day menu also touts air-dried home-cured bacon baps (great for breakfast) as well as burgers, quiches and a few veggie plates – plus a handful of desserts including chocolate brownies, Earl Grey teabread and flapjacks. Thirsty? They stock local Fourpure beers and wines from the cask too.

Camden Market (West Yard)

Camden Market (West Yard)

Camden Market’s West Yard (the cobbled bit next to the canal and behind Lock 17) was (until recently) synonymous with KERB’s brilliantly creative street-food collective, who revamped the site and helped to make the neighbourhood cool again – thanks to a hot list of global vendors selling genuinely interesting and imaginative grub. The traders are still there, but KERB is no longer involved – although you’d hardly know it given the line-up of street-food stalls, cult cafés and terrace bars peddling their wares on the site. It’s an ever-changing feast but do look out for names such as Petare, Tongue ‘n Cheek or Young Vegans. The areas leading off the West Yard have also been cleaned up and re-branded as ‘alleys’ (eg ‘Asian alley’), although they’re mostly occupied bymore mainstream traders.

Hallelujah! There are actually some new bars and restaurants in London

Hallelujah! There are actually some new bars and restaurants in London

Who the hell would open a restaurant or bar in 2020? Surely you’d have to have some serious guts to think it was an appropriate time to open the doors of a brand new venture. But, against all the odds, doors have been swinging open across the city. From favourites like Tandoor Chophouse, Swift and Club Mexicana opening new sites, to iconic venues like Barrafina giving their current venues total overhauls (its Drury Lane restaurant is reopening as a seafood spot), brave change has been happening on a major scale. But here we’re saluting the bravest of them all: the Londoners who’ve opened totally new joints this year. The modern Punjabi one   Photograph: We the Food Snobs Agency   Named after the family village of founders Ravinder and Amar Madhray, Attawa does Punjab comfort food that’s sure to cure your winter blues. Think: crisp amritsa khatta ladoo (fried lentil dumplings) and the creamiest black dal makhani in the city.

2020’s Michelin Stars – London’s winners and losers

Ah, Michelin. We don’t always agree with the Gallic gastronomes (though we do love Bibendum, their tyre-tummied mascot). But my, their awards do cause a kerfuffle. This year, there’s already an outcry about the lack of stars for the London 2020 Michelin Guide – just four new one-starrers, plus a couple of ‘upgrades’. And, as ever, there’s also a handful of restaurants that have been given the ceremonial chop. Here’s who’s in, and who’s out: NEW ONE STARSDa Terra at the Town Hall Hotel, Bethnal GreenThe Dysart Petersham, Richmond Endo, White CityMaos, Shoreditch NEW TWO STARSLa Dame de Pic at the Four Seasons Tower Hill NEW THREE STARSSketch Lecture Room and Library WHO’S OUT (excluding restaurant closures)The ArakiBenaresL’atelier du Joel RobuchonGalvin at WindowsYauatcha Bibendum giveth, and he taketh away.  Check out the full list of London’s Michelin star restaurants (including 2020 newbies) here Or how about a more Time Out-ey kind of a list (including a few Michelin-starred spots, plus lots of places that are cooler, or better value, or both)?

We've just launched a new rewards card Time Out More: here's our pick of the perks

Our new perks card has just launched. These are some of the freebies you won’t want to miss out on Everyone knows that food and drink tastes better when it’s free. That’s why we’ve launched Time Out More – a rewards card with a difference. It’s a digital card, so there’s no danger of it going the same way as all those lost Oyster cards. And it’ll get you access to dozens of amazing deals at loads of your favourite venues, including Pizza Pilgrims, Street Feast and Shoryu. Think free cocktails, complimentary sides and gratis starters as well as off-menu dishes. All the good stuff, basically. Here’s our pick of the perks, as chosen by the Time Out Food team. Wings at Shoryu This Japanese joint knows its stuff. You can even choose the firmness of your ramen here. Before tucking into your bowl, smash through a portion of deep-fried chicken wings on the house. Vegetarian or vegan? They’ve got you covered with a zingy sesame and smashed cucumber salad.           Cocktail at Jidori You’ll get a free cocktail on arrival at this Japanese joint in Dalston and Covent Garden, which should quench your thirst as you peruse the menu of izakaya-style delicacies. Don’t miss the fried chicken skewers.   Drink at Smoke & Salt Shipping container hub Pop Brixton has loads of great food offerings, but its best has to be small-plates spot Smoke & Salt. Book a table for two in advance and you’ll be greeted with a free beer or a glass of bubbly. We recommend settling in for a long, leisurely meal. 

A new Korean café has just opened in Soho

A new Korean café has just opened in Soho

Jeonhwaleul jabda! – that’s Korean for ‘Hold the phone!’ – a multi-level Korean café just opened smack-bang in the middle of Soho. Meet Mee Market. Over two minimally designed floors (white accents, exposed brick, you know the drill), there's a hot counter dishing out traditional noodle soups, stews and hotpots, plus a grocer selling Asian-inspired dry foods. Downstairs, expect homeware, accessories, stationery and an 18-seat dining hall where you can warm up with a cup of Korean burdock root tea. Linda Lee (of Koba and On the Bab) is the brains behind the operation. She says she’s on a mission to bring authentic Korean food to London, so Mee Market is based on the country’s traditional ‘table and market’ concept. Let her know it’s your birthday, engagement or any special day, and she’s promised to honour Korean tradition and give you a free bowl of hot noodle soup. Mee Market opens on Mon Dec 4 at 9a Archer St, W1D 7AX. Need more Korean food? Here are the best places to get it in London. Sign up to Time Out to hear about new openings first.

A north London chippie is doing deep-fried Christmas pudding

’Tis the season for delicious Christmas gimmicks. Running off the success of last year’s battered sprouts (deep-fried brussels that are back for another round), fish-and-chip shop Sutton & Sons is now serving deep-fried Christmas puddings at its Stoke Newington, Islington and Hackney branches. Hot, crispy, battery puds? Ho ho ho-ly hell! They actually sound quite delicious. They’re going for £4.50, come with a serving of brandy cream and will be available from Monday December 11 until December 30 – what else do you need to know?  Get into the festive spirit with our guide to Christmas in London.

You can now get a full Christmas dinner made entirely of crisps

You can now get a full Christmas dinner made entirely of crisps

Last year, we discovered that a restaurant entirely dedicated to crisps was opening in Soho. That spot – dubbed Hipchips – is still going. Apparently Londoners really love crisps.  Time will tell whether this love extends to replacing our traditional Christmas dinner with them. But that’s exactly what Hipchips is offering: a five-course Christmas ‘dinner’ of handcrafted crisps (for a mere £6.75). Four flavours of crisps will be paired with five festive dips. A ‘starter’ of smoked salmon and pickled cucumber-flavoured crisps will appear, alongside a traditional turkey dinner flavour and a sweet Christmas pudding flavour for dessert. Dinner will be matched with a selection of craft beers, wine and cocktails, and they’ll be available on UberEats if you don’t feel like leaving the house. Jesus died for this.

The meatiest festival ever is coming back to London

The meatiest festival ever is coming back to London

Not for the faint hearted – or vegetarian – the three-day meat festival Meatopia has announced its return to London. Headed up by Richard H Turner (of Hawksmoor fame), the extravaganza is in its sixth year, serving up a delicious, fully curated menu from some of the world’s best chefs at east London’s Tobacco Dock.  If you’re free of commitment issues and you know you’ll be in London at the end of August 2018 (tickets go on sale nine months in advance), head to the Meatopia website at midday this Friday. Earlybird tickets will give you access to the festival for a solid half-hour before anyone else is allowed in, which means you might not have to queue for 45 minutes for a bit of brisket like the other mugs. Last year’s line-up featured Yotam Ottolenghi, Nathan Outlaw and Nud Dudhia (of Breddos Tacos) cooking over many, many fires, so we’ve high hopes for this year. There’ll also be live music, craft beer and informal workshops on the horrifying-sounding ‘Cutting Room’ stage.  It’ll all go down between August 31 and September 2. Tickets are on sale from midday on Friday December 1 from the Meatopia website. Can’t wait for your pound of flesh? Then check our our list of London’s best steak restaurants.

Teen cuisine: the four best places to eat if you're 13 to 19

Teen cuisine: the four best places to eat if you're 13 to 19

When it comes to spending our money, us kidults are either wearing it or eating it. For those of you who strongly relate to the ‘eating it’ part, here are four of the best spots to chow down around town. Meatliquor   A photo posted by MEATliquor Restaurants (@meatgram) on Sep 20, 2016 at 9:26am PDT   If the world’s juiciest burgers, having your favourite song being played and the chance of your photobooth selfie being bought by the owners doesn’t tick every teen box, then I don’t know what will. We also love the names of their drinks (Kammel Toe, anyone?), the fact that they give you a free meal if you complete the chilli challenge (ten minutes to eat three chilli-covered dishes) and the ‘rabbit style’ burgers, which switch out the buns for lettuce! Dishoom   A photo posted by Reem Kanj-Kemal (@reemkanj) on Oct 23, 2016 at 9:17am PDT   Dishoom is a bucket-list-for-teens kind of a place, thanks to its good-quality, Indian-with-a-twist food and fair prices. They have vegetarian, dairy- and gluten-free options so no one has to miss out, and the decor is really fun and colourful, too. The trouble with being so good is that there’s usually a queue, so book ahead (they only take dinner bookings for groups so grab some mates) or go at an off-peak time. On the Bab   A photo posted by On The Bab (@onthebab) on Apr 9, 2015 at 6:12am PDT   Korean street food is the best if you’re young and on a budget: it’s super-cool and super-cheap. The food is super-satisfying, t
