Tapas, and speakeasies. and roof gardens, oh my!
I’m a self-proclaimed international foodie, and I definitely ate to my heart’s content during my recent visit to London. Let’s just say my food baby hasn’t gone away.
I ate (well, technically inhaled) everything from traditional Moroccan dishes, Lebanese cuisines, global pizzas, and, of course, fish and chips! I even had the chance to tour a beautiful roof top garden my last night in town. The view was spectacular.
If you’re visiting London this year, please check out the following restaurants and bars. I promise you’ll enjoy them all.

Ember Yard is foodie’s dream. Hands down, this was one of my favorite restaurants that I dined at. Tapas are small savory dishes, typically served with lots of libations. It’s a great way to taste an assortment of food all at once. If you have a chance to stop by, I personally recommend the chargrilled Iberico pork ribs, padron peppers, roasted welsh lamb, prosciutto, octopus, and smoked chorizo (featured below).
At Heathrow Airport, it’s recommended that travelers arrive three hours (yes, three) before their scheduled flights. If you have some down time before departure, check out Strada. The food is fresh and comes out quickly. Located in Terminal 3.
Sky 23 is located on the 23rd floor of the Hilton Metropole. You can try one of the specialty cocktails while looking at the amazing view of the London skyline.
