My August Restaurant Picks

I am always trying to explore new and exciting restaurants in London and the list seems to never end. Here are my favourite restaurants I have tried in the last month:

Hispania: Spanish Tapas

I absolutely adore tapas, and London is bursting with great Spanish tapas restaurants! I came across Hispania through an old work colleague of mine, who I was meeting for dinner one evening. Directly beside Exit 6 at Bank Station, the building alone is spectacular! With beautiful, high ceilings and fantastic service, Hispania ticks all the boxes before you have even tried the food! The menu is a mix of tapas and main dishes, ranging from traditional tapas, to tapas with a more exotic twist. The menu is fairly standard in terms of pricing – it isn’t cheap, but it isn’t extortionate either. It also takes bookings!

Flour & Grape: Cheap and cheerful homemade, Italian pasta

Bermondsey Street strikes again! It seems, when it comes to food, that Bermondsey Street can do no wrong! Flour and Grape is located about an 8-10 minute walk from London Bridge station, and is every pasta lover’s heaven! All their pasta is made from scratch and has a range of dishes from prawn linguine, to tomato and aubergine rigatoni. The food is amazing value and they take reservations for lunch, but dinner is walk-in only.

Cinnamon Bazaar: Twist on Indian Food

I actually came across Cinnamon Bazaar by chance, while in Covent Garden one evening and I will definitely be returning! An Indian based menu, the food was absolutely fantastic and ranged from both small to large dishes. The food is very reasonable and not too heavy, like traditional Indian food. I would definitely recommend getting a few of the small plates and trying different dishes from the menu!

German Gymnasium:

I am not going to lie, when I heard I was going to a German restaurant recently I wasn’t entirely convinced, as I am not the biggest fan of German food. However, having been to this restaurant, my opinions have completely changed. A converted Gymnasium beside Kings Cross station, the building is simply stunning. The food is quite unusual but absolutely delicious! Prices are on the higher end of the scale, but if you are making an evening out of it, it is definitely worth it! You can enjoy this Mittel-European inspired menu for breakfast lunch or dinner, and late night glamour at the chic Meister Bar.
