London Food Guide: Top Restaurants in the City for 10 Different Cuisines

If you’re in London on a holiday, you cannot be having simply British food for all 10 days, because you could try everything there is to try in just one day. However, London – being the melting pot of cultures that it is – has a lot more to offer than just fish & chips. Go ahead and explore the city’s vibrant and exciting restaurant scene that offers just about all your favorite cuisines.
