Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

London

Sarona
Sarona's menu is a careful curation of trusty Israeli favourites alongside experimental double-takes such as sea bass sashimi and a colour-popping beetroot salad. 
40 Dean Street
A cosy Italian bistro, 40 Dean Street is a Soho stalwart serving traditional, well-executed Italian classics.
Tea Room at Bun House
If the ambiance at Tea Room at Bun House is pure Hong Kong, then so are the dishes; together, the venue offers one of London’s most wonderfully distinct brunch experiences.
Inigo
Rather than standard mixed salmon platters, the bijou Inigo slings sushi handrolls: burrito-proportioned rolls stuffed with a mix of creative fillings.
Hoppers
A Sri Lankan restaurant from the team behind Gymkhana and Bubbledogs, Hoppers is a Soho staple for its hoppers, hard drinks and must-have dishes.
Pizza East Kentish Town
Found near Hampstead Heath, Pizza East Kentish Town serves a moreish menu of ciabatta-style pizzas, as well as a great cocktail menu.
Zala Grill
A highlight of the reborn Camden Market, Zala Grill draws indoor and outdoor diners with its "Levantine pizzas" and other creative Israeli fare.
Kiln
Regional Thai cuisine is the name of the game at Kiln in Soho, a restaurant where dishes are cooked in hand-hammered woks, clay pots and a wood-fired kiln.
El Pastór
A popular but petite taqueria in London Bridge’s Borough Market, El Pastór is taco-shack chic and beloved for its fresh tortillas and meaty tacos.
The Cheese Bar
In the wrong hands, The Cheese Bar might have been a single-punchline gimmick. Instead, it's a restaurant of serious, indulgent substance.
Radio Alice
In the midst of London's artisanal pizza boom, it's Radio Alice's lovingly made, slow-fermented pizzas that make it a stand-out.
Chuck Burger
Chuck Burger stands out from London's burger crowd thanks to its untraditional patties (and hard shakes).
Chai Ki
Roti Chai founder Rohit Chugh is back with Chai Ki, a new street-food inspired culinary venture at Canary Wharf’s Crossrail Place
Beef & Brew
It’s about time restaurants paid attention to craft beer. Beef & Brew, true to its name, serves up the suds alongside its carnivorous fare.
Salon
Eating food foraged from around Brixton may sound a little alarming, but hold your nerve for a visit to Salon and you will be richly rewarded.
Ducksoup
Allied to the locavore trend, Ducksoup's seasonal menu and biodynamic wine list suggests a firm grasp of the Zeitgeist.
Bone Daddies
