Less is often more, and the restaurant industry has taken this by heart. The sudden rise in the number of single-dish restaurants stands as proof. These are nifty ways to make sure you eat the best without wasting time choosing from an exhaustive menu.
London is the single dish restaurant capital of the world. You can find one from every cuisine as you walk down the culinary capital. These are not your off-the-beaten-track “best restaurants near me” search results. These restaurants are the one dish wonders who serve just ONE dish to the patrons.
Egg Break, 30 Uxbridge Street, W8 7TA
This Notting Hill newcomer serves brunch, lunch and dinner. It sports an egg-cellent menu. From fried eggs and poached eggs, to egg Florentine and folded egg bun, the Egg Break has taken egg-crafting finesse to another level in the world of single-dish restaurants.
Balls & Company, 58 Greek Street, W1D 3DY
Balls & Company is known for its gourmet meatballs. This Soho restaurant makes the fanciest and tastiest meatballs possible in the history of dining. They are infused with quinoa, beetroot and feta. We were not kidding when we said these meatballs are a classy affair! The restaurant has a basement cocktail bar and a concise snacks menu with a variety of balls to choose from.
The Potato Project, 27 Noel Street, W1F 8GZ
This restaurant takes potato very seriously. Almost as severe as the French. This mediocre vegetable gets a serious upgrade and makeover at the new Soho fine dining destination. The gourmet kitchen serves everything from jacket potatoes to all-day breakfast platters with roasted artichoke, smoked ham hock, cheddar and piccalilli. Try their sweet potato cheesecake and granola crumb to finish your meal on a sweet note.
Top Dog, 48 Frith Street, W1D 4SF
Top Dog only uses the freshest produce from local farms to make it; you guessed it right, hot dogs. People simply love these preservative free, healthy hot dogs. They are simple, fun and super cheesy! You can also don the chef’s hat and start building your hot dog from scratch. Top Dog has made a gourmet hot dog experience possible in the heart of the city.
Bubbledogs, 70 Charlotte Street, W1T 4QG
If you are not done with hot dogs yet, try Bubbledogs. This one has 16 different kinds of hotdogs and an exhaustive list of champagnes. This London affair offers champagnes at £6-£9 per glass and hotdogs at £6-£8. This is a must visit for every food lover who has been looking for the simpler pleasures of life on a budget.
These five restaurants negate the idea of “bigger is better” when it comes to the menu. They specialise in one kind of dish, and they do it well. So if you are having a bad day, busy day and an incredible day, just head on to any of these for an excellent yet simple meal.
