🎉 INTRODUCING OUR BRAND NEW UD VFC CHIKKEN! 🎉⁣ ⁣ Say a big hello to our new VFC chikken burger! 😍 ⁣ ⁣ Before he went vegan, our co-founder @earthlinged used to be OBSESSED with KFC and he would eat it so often that the staff at his local KFC knew him by his name and knew what his favourite order was. This burger is inspired by how things change, how society changes and how we can ALL change as individuals towards ethical options. We do not need to harm animals in order to experience the same flavours and textures that come with non-vegan products. We can use PLANTS to create incredible food. ⁣ ⁣ Our brand new burger has a crispy southern fried UD chikken patty, topped with melted cheeze, bacon, hash brown, BBQ + garlic sauce and is all stuffed in a soft brioche bun. ⁣ ⁣ VFC is for the animals, for the earth, and for you! We hope you all love the VFC burger as much as we do! (Also available as popcorn chikken bites 😉) 🎉🎉🎉⁣ ⁣ PS: Big BIG love to every single one of you on our last post, we love you all and we can’t wait to serve you at our new home 🖤🖤🖤⁣ ⁣ #vegan #unitydiner #veganfortheanimals

Arabica, Kings Cross

Rating – 4.8/5
Price – ££

Following their delicious food at Borough, Arabica have opened their second restaurant at Kings Cross. Specialising in Levantine and Middle Eastern cuisine, this is ideal for small plate lovers and their bread and hummus is an absolute must. With a great cocktail menu to match, there is also a breakfast menu for those up and out early at the weekend.


Seven Dials Market, Covent Garden

Rating – 4.4/5
Price – £

It’s been a long time coming but finally KERB have opened their first full time space after taking London street food markets by storm in the last few years. There is something here for everyone from a quick bite during weekend shopping to those out on a Friday night for drinks at their downstairs bar. There’s a fresh food market inside as well but for street food lovers, there’s everything from CLAW for seafood, Yum Bun for Asian bao buns lovers and Pick and Cheese for the cheese connoisseurs.

Seabird, Southwark

Rating – 4.5/5
Price – £££

High-rise and high-end, London has another seafood restaurant and this one isn’t to miss. With rooftop views of the river atop of the Hoxton Hotel (not actually in Hoxton), expect lots of small plates ideal for sharing with friends and seafood platters ready for those who are there for a seafood session. Also, their Octopus Roll could be the new sandwich to try in London topped with padron peppers and a spiced aioli. One to go to for those who love their seafood.

Haya, Notting Hill

Rating – 4.3/5
Price – ££

Another restaurant for small plates and another absolute winner, this time from the newly opened Haya in Notting Hill. Expect strong Mediterranean and Middle Eastern flavours inspired by Tel Aviv offering a breakfast, brunch and all day menu to suit. A simple, yet tasty all day menu consists of meat and fish options such as spiced lamb cutlets, seared Middle Eastern spiced tuna steak and aubergine with tahini and raspberry coulis. This is my ideal type of food and have no doubt will be a popular choice in London.

A taste of Tel Aviv! Here are a few of our favourite dishes: Asparagus with cashew butter and feta cheese, smoked aubergine with tahini, almonds and raspberry coulis, baba ganoush with feta cheese and toasted almonds, and flat cap mushrooms with spicy tahini 🙌 Which dish would you like to try? • • • • #haya #toplondonrestaurants #foodphotography #londonfood #londonfoodguide #londoneats #londonlifestyle #desserts #delicious #londonfoodblog #foodblogger #foodlondon #londonrestaurantguide #londonist #timeoutlondon #middleeasternfood #eeeeats #londonopenings #whatsonlondon #newlondonrestaurant #nottinghill #mediterraneanfood #photooftheday #foodphotography #nottinghilldining #nottinghillrestaurants #nottinghillmums #restaurantinterior #londoninteriors #beautifulcuisines
