The London Gin Club

Homemade English Pies & G&T
Location: GV88+56 London, United Kingdom
Price range: ££

We were lucky enough to have visited The London Gin Club with a local via a London Food Tour. It was one of the highlights of the tour! They presented us with a selection of Gins and Tonics mentioning that the Tonic is even more important than the Gin because it enhances the Gins flavours. But what we loved most was their homemade pies. Their pies disappeared for a while, but because of popular demand, they are back and we couldn’t be happier!

Tasty Tip:
The London Gin Club has 1.5 hour tasting events for £32 per person

Homemade Pie £5.50
Slow Brasied Minced Beef with Red Vermouth
St John Bread and Wine

Bakery + Wine + Meat
Location: 96 Commercial St, Spitalfields, London E1 6LZ, UK
Price Range: ££

This was another good find thanks to our Local guide on a London Food Tour. After our first bite of the simple, yet amazing pork sandwhich, we were hooked and starred it on our map straight away. This place has quite the story with starting as a bakery, then selling wine in which their guests would end up buying their delicious bread and sip on wine lending itself to become a restaurant. Go here and enjoy a 2 or 3 plates of small sweet or savory bites!

Insider Scoop: They offer corkage. This means if you have a nice bottle of wine you would like to bring, they charge £25.00 per bottle

Location: 48 Commercial St, Spitalfields, London E1 6LT, UK
Price Range: ££

Hot Box was a fantastic find by… me! I love researching new places to go and this is one place that looked absolutely amazing, and trust me, it is! Hot Box dry rubs their meat and cooks it slowly in order to get the perfect tenderness that literally melts in your mouth. They are true BBQ masterpieces. This is a place I know we will go back to every. single. visit!

Asian Wings: Fishglaze, seasameseeds, pickled red chillis (6) £7

Located on the 5th floor, this place has a stunning roof top terrace to enjoy a drink before tasting the exquisite tastes Aqua Kyoto has to offer. It has high quality food with fresh fish and hot plates. It is on the more expensive side, so I would recommend going here for a special occasion, but it is definitely a meal & ambience worth experiencing.

Dessert

Chin Chin Ice Cream

Ice Cream
