I scoured the Chow boards to put together 5 days worth of eating the best food. I was not disappointed with any of my choices. Here they are:

Harwood Arms- Pork belly with quails eggs, crispy pig ears. The lovely people at the Harwood have the best bread in London. It was an irish soda bread with the most divine butter. Great start to the trip.

Mooli- They specialize in Indian street food. Not sure if was authentic, but it was damn good. I had a chickpea wrap with a superfood salad. Mint lemonade. Perfect lunch

Spuntino- This was the most fun meal of the trip. We ordered way too much food for 2 people. Started off with a cup of free chili spiked popcorn. Nice touch. Ground beef and bone marrow slider, pulled pork and pickled apple slider, Mac and cheese (omg), asparagus pizzetta, calamari chickpeas and ink, and shoestring fries. The dessert was the best of the trip, ( and this includes Paris as well), Peanut butter and jelly sandwich. IT was peanut butter ice cream shaped to look like toast, with jam mixture in the middle. Soooo good!

Borough Market- Chorizo sandwich, and other yummy items. I could eat at a different place for 2 months and not repeat

Bocca di Lupo- Loved this place. Radish, pecorino, pomegranate salad, Orecchiette with salame. For dessert we walked across the street to Gelupo (owned by the same people), i had the best gelato I have ever had

Ottolenghi- Perfect lunch spot after a day of shopping. Had a mix of salads.

Barrafina- Cute diner style tapas. Jambon fritatta, garlic shrimp, tomato toast, toast with aioli, chickpeas and spinach

Dean Street Townhouse- Afternoon tea service. Sandwiches were ok, scones and cakes were amazing. Service was so great. The atmosphere was the best part. Relaxed
The Thomas Cubitt- Pimm's cocktail, chili salt squid, awesome chicken dish. Service was great
