Soho Snacks

Here are some of my favourite snacks in Soho. Some are guiltier pleasures than others!

1. The fried chicken at Sliderbar, purely because of all of the different accompaniments - coleslaw, creamed corn, gravy and cheese croquettes.

2. The smoked mackerel tostadas from Wahaca. Yeah, there are probably better Mexican restaurants in Soho but I'm a huge mackerel fan and I could eat these all day.

3. The pancakes from The Diner. I went there on pancake day and despite having to queue for twice the time we were told (we forgave them because it was Shrove Tuesday), the pancakes were good - slathered with (probably) additive-filled raspberry sauce, white chocolate and marshmallows. I dread to think how many calories.

4. Aubergine chips from Spuntino. There are never enough.

5. The goat roti from Mooli's, or any of the rotis from Mooli's. Just don't ask for a burrito.

6. A stumpy from Fernandez & Wells. Just bigger than a macchiato and smaller than a flat white. Handy if you're trying to get a coffee for Goldilocks.

7. Ham & cheese French toast with honey mustard dressing from Foxcroft & Ginger, it's very decadent (I haven't been for a while but I hope they still do it).

8. The pork and fennel meatballs at Polpo. Not exactly a guilty pleasure, but meatballs are often overlooked in favour of something prettier.

9. I don't know what it is but there's something about the ham and cheese croissant from Pret. You can say what you like, but I've had them from artisan cafes and independents and they haven't quite hit the spot - too heavy, greasy etc. The ultimate hangover cure (not a Soho thing, but something I usually get in Soho).

10. The broccoli and stilton soup from The Stockpot on Old Compton Street. You can get that with a main course for £7.95 for lunch at a restaurant that's not trying to be cool whatsoever.

  1. That Pret croissant is ever the 6am airport saviour.

    Good call - also massively agree on the F&G french toast. Inspired.

  2. I am completely with you on the ham and cheese croissant from Pret. I had to wean myself off them at one point as I was having them every day for breakfast! I actually think their plain croissants are pretty good too.
