London is a huge city and full of so many different cultures and a wide range of culinary treats. So choosing where to go can be tricky.
We found a few places that were inexpensive, had options for vegetarians, and didn’t require a reservation.
While we were there my daughter had a wild craving for Nachos. In London??
Well after a quick search we actually did find a lovely place where nachos are not only on the menu, but done so well that we had to go back several times that week to have them again.
Giraffe is a fun place to try. It can be loud, the tables are very close together, and it can take a bit of time to get your food. BUT, it is a lovely menu, lots of options, and the servers are fantastic. Here is what we ordered:
Nachos Nirvana – home fried tortilla chips topped with veggie chili mix, melting cheese, jalapenos, fiery chipotle salsa, guacamole & sour cream.
The veggie chili is so good that we ordered it on the side for dinner one night.
Falafel Deluxe Burger -grilled pepper, halloumi, carrot, beetroot, mixed leaves, tzatziki, red pepper & harissa hummus
A little on the dry side without the Tzatziki, the sandwich is actually very tasty though.
Miso & Lime Grilled Salmon –wasabi fried rice, teriyaki greens & fresh lime with sesame crunch
This has a zesty kick, so be prepared for the spice. But it is flavorful, filling, and enough to share.
Tofu & Squash Laksa –fragrant spiced coconut broth with snap peas, broccoli, red chilli & rice noodles
Meh, this one is a bit too mild, almost bland. But it was nice on a cold winter day. Though I wouldn’t get it again.
