So many new London restaurants, too little time? We know the feeling. Luckily, our tireless team of intrepid tasters are here to help, with this rundown of five of the best new joints in London right now.
We're constantly on the hunt for awesome food, so keep an eye out for what's new near you.
1. Motu Indian Kitchen, SW11 delivery
Drop everything – you're going south of the river. Motu is brought to you by the Michelin starred team behind Gymkhana, and is available exclusively on Deliveroo. We can't get enough of their feast box, which does exactly what it says on the tiffin.
2. Otherside Fried, Pop Brixton
What better way to end the week with a honey butter fried chicken. Big shout to @kerbfood for the amazing party to celebrate there 4th birthday! 🎉🎉🎉🎉 and shout out to @toms_big_eats for coming down to @popbrixton for his chicken fix! And also @ks_ate_here for loving the chicken chocolate balls. Peace and clucking. 🐔🐔🐔🐔🐔
Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the Otherside Fried, of course. Serving their take on the buttermilk-fried chicken burger out of a converted ambulance at Pop Brixton, we're obsessed with their four-hour smoked honey butter.
3. Farley Macallan, Hackney
In true Hackney portfolio career style, Farley Macallan is a pub-turned-wine-bar-cum-restaurant-slash-arts-space. Their tapas-like small plates include fennel-spiced yoghurt and aloe vera panna cotta. We're Farley excited.
Where: Farley Macallan, Hackney
4. Boondocks, Shoreditch
Sister restaurant to Soho's Stax Diner, Boondocks brings Deep South-style cooking to Old Street. But it's the sides that really steal the show – we couldn't resist the cajun spiced popcorn shrimp and battered pickles.
Where: Boondocks, Hackney
5. Butifarra, Soho
This casual eatery is named after Peru's favourite street food snack, a bread roll packed with slow-cooked meat and salsa. But with Niall Davidson of Chiltern Firehouse as consultant chef, Butifarra's signature dish is a far cry from your average sandwich.
