5 Things You Need to Eat in London This WeekBy Alicia Grimshaw
Your time is precious. And so are burgers. Don’t spend your time trawling through menus, here are 5 things you need to eat in London this week. Happy munching:
What: Gordon Ramsay’s laid-back bistro, Maze Grill serves traditional comfort food, steak inspired by the grills rooms of Manhattan, and a mouth watering selection of sushi and sashimi. They’ve just rolled out their new Japanese Kozara light lunch sushi menu full of tasty Asian inspired bites.
Why: The new lunch menu includes dishes suitable for veggie, fish fans and carnivores. Dig into cucumber, cream cheese and chive maki rolls, snow crab California rolls, steak yakitori and chicken satay. If you think this lunchtime menu will leave you in an afternoon slump, think again. The dishes use the freshest fish and dry-age all steaks onsite to deliver on both exceptional taste and flavour.
Where: 79 Royal Hospital Road, London, SW3 4HN
What: Situated in the heart of East London’s hub, Shoreditch, The Jones Family Project is a restaurant and bar that has something for everyone and will please even the pickiest of eaters. The Jones Family Project is choosing to ignore January’s detox season and instead are celebrating the New Year with a boozy, meaty and carby line up of gluttonous New Year activity.
Why: Throughout January, the Burgers and Bordeaux promotion allows you to grab two burgers and a bottle of Bordeaux for just £40 at lunch or dinner. Enjoy a Chuck Burger topped with slow cooked oxtail in a glazed demi-brioche bun with oxtail stock mayonnaise, tomato, lettuce and big chips accompanied with Bordeaux’s from their extensive wine list.
Where: 78 Great Eastern Street, London EC2A 3JL
What: Channelling health and wellbeing this January, aqua kyoto’s head chef Paul Greening has developed a unique and exciting Tea-Infused Menu which will be available until 5th March. Each dish on the three course menu cleverly incorporates the subtle flavours of different teas, with each dish paired with a unique tea from the specialist tea company, JING.
Why: JING’s recommended pairings include Darjeeling First Flush, which is light, floral and refreshing, with the starter of Sencha Tea Asparagus Tempura and Wasabi Sauce. Main course options include the tender Robata Wagyu Bavette with Braised Kobe Oolong Tea Daikon and Chestnut Teriyaki which has been paired with Keemun Gong Fu – a clear and precise tea that delicately cuts through the flavours and leaves a sweet finish. If you like tea and quality food, head to aqua kyoto

What: The guys and gals down at PROPERCORN have been working hard to spread a little happiness today, also known as ‘Blue Monday’ (apparently the most depressing day of the year). They’ve been working closely with sustainable food delivery start-up, Karma Cans, and Judith Wurtman PhD to develop the ‘happiest’ lunch possible. Put down that limp salad, and order one of PROPERCORN’s new lunch boxes.
Why: In the spirit of PROPERCORN and things being done properly, the new lunch box includes roasted corn, sweet potato noodles and avocado with a toasted buckwheat dukkah. Every order from Karma Cans is delivered with a pack of PROPERCORN. We can confirm that the smooth peanut butter & almond flavour is out of this world.
Where: Order here.
