Here are five of the top new restaurants which came to London in August 2019 ranging from brunch to pasta to street food to Iranian!
Eggslut, Notting Hill
Rating – 4/5
Price – £
Finally, Eggslut has arrived in London. The very popular egg speciality from the US has come to London to offer a variety of egg buns and sandwiches which are perfect for breakfast but tasty for all day eating. Watch out for the classic Bacon, Egg and Cheese combo or if feeling adventurous, the Gaucho with seared steak, egg and chimichurri in a brioche bun. One to add to the list when next over in West London.

Officina 00, Old Street
Rating – 4.7/5
Price – ££
London can’t have enough decent pasta restaurants and luckily, August saw another come to London in the shape of Officina 00 by Old Street. Offering both a menu for dining and workshops to try, the menu is packed with regional Italian dishes with fresh pasta, breads and wines to match. There is also a bar menu with wines to match and cocktails for after work specials. As those autumn nights draw in, these warming dishes are the perfect mid-week dinner fix you need.
Rating – 4.5/5
Price – £
We all know that London and in particular, Soho is not short of coffee shops but Bafarat offers middle eastern specialities with Saudi Arabian influence with coffee and desserts to suit. This is the second branch, and first international, after opening the first store in 1952 so they’ve had plenty of time to perfect their recipes! Additionally, they’ll have a five-course dessert tasting menu so for those with a sweet tooth, look no further than Bafarat!
Three Uncles, Liverpool Street
Rating – 4.1/5
Price – £
Office workers (and travelling foodies) around Liverpool Street, take note, as Three Uncles has come to solve your lunchtime treat to brighten those autumn days which are coming. Expect a section of Chinese roasted meats, noodles and dim sum with a meat combo meal of two meats and rice for £8.95 or an extra meat to make it £10.50. Get yourself down to try and take an early lunch to avoid the queues.
Nutshell, Covent Garden
Rating – 4.3/5
Price – £
In a nutshell, Nutshell is worth the visit for those who enjoy Iranian and Middle Eastern cuisine. Originally a Brick Lane pop-up, Nutshell is perfect for sharing plates and a meal with friends to enjoy a mix of meat, veggie and seafood dishes such as Jojeh kebabs, octopus from the grill and Joosh Pareh which are oxtail dumplings. Have been looking forward to this opening for a while and pleased to see them finally come to Covent Garden.
