London Foodie Itinerary for end of April

Kalenden | Jan 9, 201912:11 PM     2

My companion and I are major foodies and enjoy active city trips with a big gastronomic part.
Commonly, we actively walk around the city the whole day and go for a nice (fine-)dining experience in the evening.

We try to find local spots and places that are harder to find back home (Belgium) or that are world-known to be superb or top the lists. We prefer 1.5-2hour+ meals that allow us to discover the restaurants style. For instance, we often go for tasting menus with beverage pairing.

In our previous visit to London in 2016, for example, we had a world famous ice-cream for lunch (don't judge ;-) ) and in the evening enjoyed a michelin-starred Indian, which we cannot find in our own neighborhood, and managed to do something similar for a couple of days straight. It was a great experience to do multiple diverse fine dining restaurants over several days and get to enjoy cuisines and styles we don't have back home. Our best experiences so far were the wild playground of Barcelona (Tickets, Disfrutar, ... ), the world-class foreign options in London (Gymkhana, HKK, ...) or the exquisite local cuisine of Rome (La Pergola, offal cuisine in Checchino Dal 1887)

So, we enjoy unique/known/fun/exotic/special/renowned/authentic places and fine-dining restaurants with tasting menu's. We enjoy every type of cuisine (Asian, ethnic, vegetarian, nordic, ... ), nothing is out-of-bounds, and generally go for those more unique experiences.
Budget isn't an issue since this is our passion, so we are willing to splurge for the best experiences

Given this profile, what would you recommend for us?
