The Foodie Edit: 5 November

This week we take a trip around the world, sampling cuisine from 12 different countries without ever leaving London

Bob Bob Ricard, Russia
The glamorous Soho restaurant that’s famous for all-booth dining and the ‘Press for Champagne’ button at every table. The off-peak 20% main menu discount at lunchtimes is particularly attractive.

Momo, Morocco
Mourad ‘Momo’ Mazouz’s stylish restaurant offers a delicious array of dishes from North Africa and the Mediterranean. Cocktails in the hip subterranean bar is a must.

Le Gavroche, France
Impeccable service and multi-award-winning food courtesy of Michel Roux Jr, this is some of the finest cooking in London.

Dirty Bones, American
The Brooklyn-inspired soundtrack is perfectly matched to the gourmet-on-the-bone meat and wicked cocktails. Now in Kensington, Soho and Shoreditch.

Andina, Peru
Colourful and well balanced dishes inspired by the Peruvian Andes with a healthy London twist. Some of the best ceviche in London. Now in Notting Hill, Piccadilly and Shoreditch.

Texture, Iceland
Healthy, light and incredibly interesting cooking courtesy of Michelin-starred Aggi Sverrisson who takes your taste buds on a Scandi-inspired adventure.

Il Pampero at The Hari, Italian
Often described as an ‘Italian gem in the heart of Belgravia’ this is Italian cooking at its best, traditional home-style dishes served in very glamorous surroundings.

Ella Canta, Mexico
Colourful and flavour-packed Mexican food thanks to chef Martha Ortiz, the cocktails are worth a visit alone. The weekend brunch, three-courses with unlimited margaritas great value at £45.

Gymkhana, Indian
Indian with a fine dining twist, this Mayfair restaurant has a Michelin-star although retains a casual atmosphere with the emphasis on sharing dishes. The cocktails in the bar downstairs draws a late night crowd.

ROKA, Japanese
Fun coupled with fabulous Japanese cooking, book a table at the counter and feel part of the action as the chefs work their magic with the robata grill. The sake selection is excellent. Now in Mayfair, Charlotte Street, Aldwych and Canary Wharf.

Andrew Wong, Chinese
Andrew Wong is the current Chef of the Year and his restaurant was awarded its first Michelin star this year. The best Chinese food in London without a doubt.

Tom Kerridge at The Corinthia, British
Tom has done it again with this latest London venture bringing a menu packed with traditional favourites given his trademark twist, many coming straight from the rotisserie.
