When you’re on the go in a city, especially if you’re visiting for the first time, you’re usually on the run but in need of good food, fast. When I was in London there was an Apostrophe right next to the hotel, and this became my go to while we were in town for a few days.
Although a chain of restaurants, the food here was hearty and full flavored, with a spin towards the artisanal and the unexpected. The food was beautifully presented, and it was inexpensive — perfect towards the tail end of my two week trip.
My favorite sandwich was the agecy spicy chorizo with arugula (rocket) and oven-roasted red onion & tomato, served on a rustic multigrain baguette. Delicious, and exactly what I needed first thing after arriving from Paris on an early morning flight (that I almost missed).
The juices were also quite tasty, as was the coffee. The pastries looked beautiful but I didn’t sample too many, so give those a visit and let me know.
Check out Apostrophe’s web site to find their locations, which are scattered throughout London. I visited the St Paul’s location, and thought it was bright, cheerful, and beautifully positioned as a kicking off point for my days in London.
