LONDON

London has become a traveler’s culinary highlight. Buoyed by a bevy of some of the best chefs in the world, London is reshaping the traditional concept of “British Cuisine” by replacing tired images of overcooked beef and potatoes with a global offering inspired by every corner of the world. From Peruvian to American and Indian, Thai, Sri Lankan and Chinese, London is here to satisfy your palette’s every desire. If you want it, you will find it - be it 3-star Michelin or street food. All focused on sourcing the best ingredients, you can be confident in the quality. This is the Golden Age of London’s culinary history and a food lover’s paradise.
