London has one of the most thriving food scenes in the world. Cafes, restaurants, bistros, pubs – there’s more food on offer than anyone could sample in a lifetime. Outside of the well-known locales, however, there’s always a fresh crop of upstart eateries that are ready, willing and able to cater to your needs.
Staying at The Montcalm Royal London House, you’re surrounded by new venues offering amazing food and something new from existing Finsbury Square restaurants.
Randy’s Wing Bar
Going from strength to strength, Randy’s Wing Bar has recently opened a new branch in Aldgate and it’s just an 18-minute walk from The Montcalm Royal London House.
Whether you like your chicken spicy, coated with sticky barbeque sauce, or just well- seasoned, Randy’s Wing Bar offers amazing food and a robust cocktail menu to help it all go down. They also do great burger sliders, chicken burgers, loaded fries and even fried oysters for seafood lovers. The food on offer is made to perfection, no matter what you choose.
The style is down-home and relaxed, and Randy’s Wing Bar is quickly becoming one of the best restaurants in the area.
This Clerkenwell-based eatery is home to what is probably some of best fish and chips you’ll find in the capital – it’s that good. United Chip deals in classic fish and chips done right. It’s less than twenty-minutes on the Tube from your Montcalm Royal London House location and more than worth the short trip.
The chips are large, golden and the perfect texture and the fish is to die for. It’s perfectly cooked, crispy and fluffy all at once and United Chip has seen themselves praised in the Observer food section. They also do an amazing soft-shell crab burger with pickles and garnish, sublime calamari and perfect breaded scampi. Fish and chips doesn’t get any better than this.
As the name might suggest, Sub Cult are very serious about their sandwiches. The average supermarket sandwich is an affront to these artisans of the breaded arts, and their offerings may very well be the best sandwiches you’ve ever tried.
Initially a food market-only brand, they’ve taken up an 18-month residence in one of the pop-up containers of Broadgate. Even better, this location is less than a five-minute walk from your Montcalm Royal London House location, so the perfect sandwich is well within reach.
TimeOut, The Times and the London Evening Standard are just a few of the many publications that are enamoured with Sub Cult and they pride themselves on their secret dough recipe for the ultimate sub. A host of American classics are on the menu, as well as unique in-house creations. Get yourself down to Sub Cult and experience one of the best eateries among Finsbury Square Restaurants.
There have been calls for Sub Cult to receive a Michelin Star, which is basically unheard of for a venue delivering this kind of food. Check it out while you can.
