Andina is an all day restaurant serving healthy food and drinks inspired by modern Peruvian recipes. Located in the heart of Shoreditch, Andina is perfect for gluten free eaters as well as most of their dishes are made from quinoa. I recommend the Quinoa burger! Soo good! Come here with a group of friends to start your night off right with fresh food and creative cocktails. I also recommend coming for breakfast and trying one of their fresh cold-pressed juices and smoothies.
Borough Market **
If you are a food lover, go here! It will be heaven! One of the largest and oldest food markets in London selling a large variety of gourmet foods from all over the world. It is split into 2 parts selling savory breads, cheeses, meats, sauces & spreads, produce, juices and desserts. Definitely come here hungry because you will sample a variety of amazing homemade food. Then venture to the lunch stands to buy an ethnically delicious meal. The lunch stands cover all cuisines- Italian, Indian, Caribbean, Asian, Mediterranean, to much much more. My favorite lunch spots are Soul Food (Carribean), La Tua Pasta (Itallian), Kappacasein (gourmet grilled cheese). Also sample the pesto spread at Borough Olives, soo good. Open Wednesday through Saturday, but beware it does get pretty busy.
A two-story Pop-up mall that has an eclectic mix of trendy shops, bars, and restaurants varying in unique cuisines. Offers outside and inside seating overlooking the young, hip city of Shoreditch. My favorite restaurants are: Falafelicious, Chop'd, La Catrina, and Thai & Lao Street Food.
Ceviche is the sister restaurant of Andina. It has a young, trendy vibe and functions as a tapas restaurant, so it's a great place for sharing with a big group of people. The menu offers a wide range of seafood, skewers, salads, side dishes, and pisco cocktails. I recommend the sea bass ceviche and diver caught king scallops.
Coya is a modern, upscale Peruvian restaurant and bar that includes a ceviche bar, open charcoal grill, and central kitchen. The authentic and savory Latin-American ingredients will make you wanting more. I recommend the Sea bass ceviche, tuna ceviche, Josper Octopus, and Josper corn (basically everything is delicious, get a lot to try!).
The Port House
Traditional Spanish tapas served in a wine cellar atmosphere. The Port House serves a tasty and eclectic selection of foods and wines.
Soul Food- Borough Market
My favorite lunch spot at Borough Market. Soul food offers savory, simple Caribbean food that is full of spices and flavor. I always get the Jerk chicken with the aromatic rice and peas. Made right in front of you so it's as fresh as you can get.
Sushi Samba *
Located on the 38th floor of the Heron Tower in the financial district of London, Sushi Samba offers spectacular views of the entire city of London. The cuisine is a combination of Japanese, Brazilian, and Peruvian making for a unique and flavorful meal. It's a bit pricy but this is definitely a dinning experience.
Wahaca is a trendy and vibrant restaurant specializing in locally sourced and healthier Mexican street food. The restaurant is downstairs with a hip bar upstairs. I recommend getting lots of their smaller sized dishes to share. If you plan to get a drink, definitely get a margarita.
