Have you ever heard of a Kosher Chinese restaurant? Well this is one. What's more, the menu points out that Jews arrived in Kaifeng as far back as the 10th century, so this is not such a strange idea as you might initially think. London's premier (and only) Kosher Chinese dining spot is not altogether cheap, but the quality is high. The cuisine is conventional, so expect ribs, egg rolls, stir fries and the like. The only difference is that everything is prepared according to Kosher guidelines.
Probably London's best Kosher restaurant; it's also Europe's largest. Solly's caters to everyone. Eating alone? Head for the counter. Intimate tête-à-tête? The ground floor dining room will do just fine. But if you want to feel Solly's size in all its glory, then go directly to the first floor, a.k.a. Solly's Exclusive. You'll think you've been transported to Disneyland's Middle-Eastern World. The style of food here is more Middle-Eastern/Mediterranean than Eastern European, with great meze (hummus, aubergines, merguez) and meat.
Nestled in the residential neighborhood of Crouch End, this eatery has been around for many years. As you enter, you'll find a bistro-like setting, complemented with ancient decor.

This charming and historic public house was originally built as a residence for the Spanish Ambassador to the court of King James I, hence the name. Dick Turpin, the Highway robber, is one of its former illustrious punters, and his famous pistol is on display. The Spaniards Inn is also steeped in literary history; Dylan Thomas was allegedly born here, and poets Byron and Keats have also downed a pint at the bar. The pubs snug, panelled rooms and open fires make it a welcome retreat, and the real ale is another crowd-pleaser. A stone's throw from Kenwood, it is an ever-popular conclusion to a weekend stroll on Hampstead Heath. The Inn's garden is well cared for and the aviary should interest children.
This is a simple, unpretentious trattoria, serving up all your old favorites without sun-dried tomatoes or fusion dishes. Simple terracotta and light washed-out colors suit the old-fashioned style of this local restaurant. The flavor is in the ingredients, and simple dishes are infinitely better than the complicated ones you see at some modern Italian places. It is also a great spot for groups.
