Bonnie Stern: Tasty bits by clever Brits

As a culinary destination, London has it all. There’s the modern British food at the stylish Berners Tavern; the Ottolenghi food shops that introduced the Western world to Middle Eastern flavours; the Clove Club’s delicious multi-course tasting menus; Wagamama, the Asian noodle chain that’s a welcome relief from the city’s high prices; Hoi Polloi, in the hip new Ace Hotel; afternoon tea at the 100-year-old Stafford Hotel; healthy fast food at Leon’s; over-the-top Israeli food at The Palomar; and, finally, the Borough Market, where there’s gooey grilled cheese sandwiches at Kappacasein, the silkiest mascarpone and fig gelato at 3BIS Gelateria, curly whirly cakes at Konditor and Cook, and the best flat white coffee at Monmouth Coffee. 1,961 more words
