GO Different in North West London

Alternative Eateries in North West London

Challenging your tastebuds to the culinary charms of other nations will almost always be an interesting experience if nothing else.

If you’ve never had the pleasure of sampling Bitochki (meat balls), Soljanki (Fish soup) or any other food from the Soviet Union but would like to give it a try, head to Primrose Hill. Here you will find Trojka [map], one of the few restaurants in the capital to successfully serve a menu of Russian, Polish and Ukrainian cuisine. Fridays and Saturdays, when the Russian music plays as you eat, is when this eatery really comes to life.

With the multitude of cooking programmes on the television, people have begun to get an insight into how chefs achieve their mouth-watering culinary creations. At Benihana [map] in Swiss Cottage you can experience this wizardry first hand as each table is assigned their own chef to cook your meal choices right in front of your very eyes. As the Japanese cuisine sizzles on the Hibachi Grill you can chat to the chef or simply sit in awe of the skills on show while you soak up this alternative restaurant experience.

If you are looking for something a little different in terms of dining, then you should try the bright colours and Caribbean cuisine that is Freshh [map]. With this combination of décor and delicacies, this Camden haunt can’t help but have an upbeat atmosphere, but it will also be an interesting experience for all your senses to revel in.

An alternative to Freshh for typically Caribbean cuisine is the Mango Room [map] on Kentish Town Road. Here you can sample part of Jamaica’s national dish, ackee as well as curried goat and crab.

Camden is a great place if you want to experiment with flavours from around the world. Lemongrass [map] on Royal College Street, is where you’ll find Thai food with a Cambodian slant served amid the colourful contemporary décor. While close by there’s food of a Vietnamese flavour at Thanh Binh on Chalk Farm Road.

And for those who want to sample the traditional tastes of the East End without having to commute across the capital, there’s Castle’s, an old-fashioned pie and mash shop, with jellied eels available for the particularly adventurous.
