West London

Valentina

Plates of food from the Lazio region of Italy are whisked out of the kitchen and laden with freshly made pasta, risotto and gnocchi, creamy bowlfuls rich with gorgonzola and toasted walnuts.

Kerbisher & Malt

The menu at the Ealing branch of Kerbisher offers Haddock, Cod, Plaice, Pollack and Coley, with the choice of having the fillet battered, grilled or ‘matzo mealed’.

Cabana

Try a sharing board to start at Cabana in Westfield, ‘Frango’, consists of chicken 3 ways – Coxinhas of mashed and spiced chicken, marinated wings and fried chicken.

The Meat Co

Under the duress of planning a Halal meal this is an option that is universally crowd-pleasing, and it’s no wonder as there is so little competition in London.

Hedone

Hedone is a Michelin starred blip on an ordinary suburban high street. An unmarked door does little to demystify, but we, the initiated, know better.

Bills

This chain of restaurants boasts an good back story, starting from a stand-alone grocers stall selling fresh fruit, homemade jams, olive oils and other charming condiments.
