The Story: Aldgate kosher restaurant Bevis Marks serves up the finest Jewish delicacies in London, from matzo and latkes to their famous shredded salt beef. This is the one for a slightly more fancy kosher dinner, in the comfort of your own home.
What to Order: Depends what you’re in the mood for, they’ve got lighter options like chicken soup, lockshen and matzo ball, and chicken with mango, rocket and peanuts, as well as seriously tasty main courses. This is the place for meat lovers – they deliver kosher steaks, such as Prime Rib-Eye steak with mushroom sauce, as well as salt-beef, rosemary-coated lamb cutlets, and for fish lovers, herb-crusted salmon on wilted spinach with ratatouille. Of course, there’s pudding too – try the chocolate bread and butter pudding with custard for a chocolate taste sensation, and apricot frangipane tart for a sweet treat.

The Story: You can imagine with Pita does. Stuff in pitta – done really well. Whether it’s falafel, sabich, schnitzel, beef kebab and humous, there’s nothing they can’t put into bread and make it taste delicious.
What to Order: Well, obviously all the pitta. For an affordable dinner, you can’t go wrong with Pita – our favourite is the classic falafel in pitta, served with humous, fresh vegetable salad, pickles, fresh onion and tahini. For something different, try schnitzel in a wrap, or the beef kebab, which also comes with side salad.If you’re shying away from the carbs the humous box with minced beef or falafel has optional pita bread, so you can get as carby as you like. You can’t go wrong with fried aubergine, hard boiled egg and mango chutney for a simple supper.
Price: From £5
The Story: The tastiest pizza in town, Pizaza is the only kosher pizza parlour in London with stuffed crust, and we think that’s reason enough. They also do a delicious wide range of milkshakes and more. Nom.

And then, of course, all the kosher pizza your heart could desire – they have everything from Margherita with black olives to the Sabich Pizza with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, chargrilled aubergines, boiled egg, roasted potatoes and freshly chopped tomatoes. For something rich and delicious, try the Roquefort Pizza with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, artichoke, blue cheese, freshly chopped tomatoes and truffle oil. For a calzone, try the Sweet Potato Bianca with cream sauce, mozzarella cheese, sweet potato and caramelised onions. And for something lighter, the Pizaza Salad with halloumi cheese, strawberry, orange peppers, caramelised pecans, lettuce, freshly cut avocado and tomatoes sprinkled with crunchy croutons and a touch of olive oil, balsamic vinegar and honey.

The Story: It all began with a simple market stall in Dublin back in 2011, where the founders of Hook made a name for themselves with their unique, “new-school”, take on fish and chips. They broke down a classic dish into all of its basic ingredients, and built it back up again with big portions of extra love and care to ensure every single part of the dish was of the highest quality, and sourced from the absolute best suppliers they could lay our hands on. Everything is made on-site; from their sauces, all the way across to our their very special seaweed salt.
What to order: Classic Panko crusted cod with seaweed salted chips and homemade tartar, or lime, mint and wasabi tempura of seabream with basil chilli sauce. For sides, try the celeriac, fennel and mustard seed slaw and sea spaghetti with samphire citron salad. They’ve got amazing dips such as lemon cajun, smoked chilli ketchup, and garlic truffle.
Prices: Fish from £10
