London: What’s Hot!

London: What’s Hot!

Our World | On 04, Jul 2013

“I get a funny feeling inside of me, just walking up and down….” Yes London town, remains my favourite city on the planet so satisfy that funny feeling inside and impress friends and colleagues with these new must-try places to eat!

There are lots of restaurants opening up in London, but there’s something special about the ones coming in the Shard. Maybe it’s because eating there will be a way of enjoying the view without having to come over all tourist-like on the viewing platform and you can proudly say (or lie!) that “I can see my house from here!”.

I’ve put together a quick guide to what’s new and exciting so take a look and, if you get to try them out, let us know firsthand whether they are worth the visit (and the money!).

Where to eat

Aqua Shard
In a nutshell:
Aqua gets an even clearer view of London.
Where is it? The Shard, London Bridge Quarter.
Why should you care? This is Aqua’s brand new concept for London, with a focus on contemporary British cuisine from exec chef Anthony Garlando combining British ingredients with “Garlando’s innovative international cooking techniques”. Expect the cocktails to reflect the British focus too.
When can you try it for yourself? July 1.

Hutong at the Shard
In a nutshell: Diverse Chinese cuisine on the 33rd floor.
Where is it? The Shard, London Bridge Quarter.
Why should you care? Aqua already has some enviable terraces at its Oxford Circus location, but this new venture at the Shard will definitely rival the very impressive views from its Hong Kong sister, particularly the bar which will be against the glass wall of the three storey Atrium. This is the first European branch of Hutong – Yeo’s Hong-Kong based high-end Chinese restaurant which is known for serving up fiery Northern Chinese food and magnificent views.
When can you try it for yourself? June 26.

Shangri La at the Shard
In a nutshell: Highest rise dining and drinking.
Where is it? The Shard, London Bridge Quarter.
Why should you care? The Shangri La hotel is taking up 18 of the upper storeys of what is fast becoming London’s most famed skyscraper – and is adding a gourmet deli, a cake shop, a destination and a cocktail bar right near the top on the 52nd floor.
When can you try it for yourself? September 2013.

Nanban London
In a nutshell: MasterChef winner goes Japanese.
Where is it? Shoreditch.
Why should you care? Another MasterChef winner Tim Anderson is looking to open a 60 seat restaurant in Shoreditch. He’ll be opening a restaurant focused on southern Japanese food, with plenty of noodles and dessert will include Japanese cakes and soft serve ice cream in traditional Japanese flavours.
When can you try it for yourself? August 2013.

Ceviche Shoreditch
In a nutshell: Peruvian goes east.
Where is it? Shoreditch.
Why should you care? The original was a big hit in Soho and soon Martin Morales will be opening a second branch in Shoreditch. The new place will feature both a bigger Ceviche Bar and Pisco Bar and a dedicated BBQ for sizzling anticucho skewers.
When can you try it for yourself? Autumn 2013.

London has an amazing selection of restaurants to suit every palate and pocket and these new openings will just add to its worldwide reputation for dining. Bon Appetite!
