I’ve only recently started to like breakfast, and I love an Acai bowl. Raw Press do the best ones in London – ask for extra peanut butter, it’s delicious. 



I love a long lunch – as long as possible, it’s the ultimate luxury. I love the Wolseley and I always order a Bloody Mary and the Kedgeree, and then treacle tart for pud.

Dinner is my favourite meal of the day. I love Indian food and I love Gymkhana; I like to sit at the bar. You must have their version of a Margarita and the cauliflower. It’s mind-blowingly good.

For after-hours eating…

If I have a super early call time I like to order Chia seed pudding the night before so I have something delicious and light to eat for breakfast in the morning. 

For taking away…

I grew up in Brixton and they have the best Jamaican bakery called ATLANTIC Bakery. My favourite is ackee and saltfish, or callaloo and plantain – it’s comfort food at its best. 

For something local…

I have two local places that I love – I think they’re my favourite places I’ve been to in London! One is Elephant in Brixton Market: delicious Pakoka and Thalis and the most charming owner. I also love Falafel King in Notting Hill. It’s the best falafel I’ve ever had.

About This Series

Breakfast, Lunch, DinnerInspired by Smythson Traveller Sir Hardy Amies, a man who diligently recorded his breakfast, lunch and dinner engagements at London’s hottest spots in his bespoke Panama diaries, we ask some of the people whose opinion we respect the most for their top recommendations in a city where they feel at home. If they could only pick one place for each meal, where would it be? Essentially: an insider alternative to anxiously scrolling through TripAdvisor.
