There are a lot of great places to eat around the London Fields and Haggerston area, and quite a few good ones are beneath the railway arches that criss-cross the neighbourhood. One of our favourites is Berber & Q, a North African and Middle Eastern inspired restaurant with a great crowd, fantastic food, and often, a line. The whole roasted cauliflower is a cult dish, and both the meat and veg dishes from the grill will make you happy. The location’s a little off the beaten path unless you’re staying out east, but it’s worth it. You’ll feel like you’ve stumbled onto a hidden, locals-only spot. Because you have.

Hill & Szrok
Hill & Szrok on Broadway Market is a butchers by day, but at night they fire up the grill to cook some pretty good steaks and chops.
Sager + Wilde
Sager and Wilde is a kind of serious but still fun wine bar on Hackney Road serving wine from a huge list, and cheese toasties.
Towpath Café is a seasonal café on the Regent’s Canal that has a strong case for being one of London’s most dopamine-inducing spots.

Berber & Q Shawarma Bar
Not to be confused with the original Berber & Q, this casual shawarma spot in Clerkenwell is a laid-back, solid bet for middle-eastern eats.
The Dock Kitchen
There are restaurants on the canal, and then there’s Dock Kitchen in Kensal. Great Mediterranean food, and a terrace to sit outside when it’s warm.
Suggested by our writers
The restaurant group that bought London Roka, Coya, and Zuma (for better or worse) have opened a Greek restaurant in Fitzrovia. And it’s fantastic.
