London is a diverse city with a diverse food culture. Although 'traditional British' is standard heavy pub fare; with shepherds pie, fish and chips and beer high on the menu, genuine Londoners are just as likely to be found downing Indian curries and East Asian noodle soups. London is a great place for all tastes and budgets to eat out.
Very few Kosher items are sold in central London. Waitrose, one of the larger chains, has a very small section for cold cuts and refrigerated/frozen foods, but is very limited. The best area to go is to Golder’s Green in zone 3.
You pay a different tax if you sit down to eat at a restaurant than if you order take-out.
