Bar Boulud | £££££ | ★★★★★ | Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, 66 Knightsbridge, Knightsbridge, SW1X 7LA
Hands down the best cocktail in London. Imagine the perfect mix between a Tiramisu and an Espresso Martini and you have the Mochatini.

The wine menu here is incredible. The cocktail menu is even better.The rosemary fizz mixed rosemary infused vodka very nicely.

Chinwag | £££££ | ★★★★☆ | 21 Lewisham Way, New Cross, SE14 6PP
When they said the burger is literally the size of your face. They no lie. Nice homemade, honest burger (only £6.99!) that will no doubt hit the spot. The lovely little upcycled interior is the perfect setting too.
Definitely didn’t need to order the chips as a side.

Finally got to come back to my favourite Spanish joint in London. The salmorejo and arroz negro did not disappoint. Need to remind myself every time I order that these are London prices. Although it may feel like it on the inside, I’m not in Spain…
