1. Bunnychow 74 Wardour St, Soho, W1F 0TE

Want a unique and delicious start to your day (or at any time during the day, really)? Then head to this South African spot serving up bunny chow, a dish that starts out with a cylindrical shaped mini loaf (we recommend Brioche), which is then hollowed out and crammed a variety of ingredients like sausage, house-cured bacon, button mushrooms, bobotie baked beans, tomato, fried egg and house-made black pudding.

6. Andina 1 Redchurch St, London, E2 7DJ

Andina is Martin Morales’ bright space on the corner of Redchurch and Shoreditch High serving Peruvian fare. Most of its dishes feature nutritious ingredients such as Peruvian quinoa, maca, amaranth, cape gooseberry, purple maize, and more. Plus, between the front room, chef's counter, downstairs dining space, and the hidden room in the back (hello skylight!), the staff can find somewhere to squirrel you away no matter how busy it gets (and damn does this neighborhood favorite get busy).

This spacious Dalston resto nails it when it comes to free-range fried chicken (they claim it'll be the best you've ever tasted), which you can get in dark or white meat, and with sides like hand-cut potato crisps and pickled veggies.
