Burrito Place · Holborn and Covent Garden · 76 Chancery Ln (at High Holborn), London, Greater London
Dylan Lowe: Ah, Chilango – no shortage of accolades but best to tell it serves up the best burrito in London by tucking into one yourself. Vibrant decor unique to each store, large selection of toppings.
Cupcake Shop · 155a Wardour St, Soho, Greater London
Dylan Lowe: Bit of a no brainer this: the aviary temptress is always luring in passers-by, diners with spare stomach space and hardcore fans. Red velvet cakes, I swear on my sweet palates, some of the best.
Ramen Restaurant · 63 Dean St (btwn Old Compton St & Bourchier St), Soho, Greater London
Dylan Lowe: Probably the best bowl of ramen I've had in London – though still room for improvement. The signature tonkotsu is what it should be: creamy, subtly meaty, topped with succulent pork and oozy egg.
Ice Cream Shop · 7 Archer St, London, Greater London
Dylan Lowe: Oh gelato. Hidden unsuspectingly in 'the street behind Great Windmill' is the ice cream parlour, sister to Bocca di Lupo opposite. Delicious sweet stuff, flavoursome in generous, creamy proportions.
Mongolian Restaurant · London · 29 North St, Clapham, Greater London
Dylan Lowe: Tucked into a converted pub, scoring massive exotic points with its Mongolian-style barbecue and hotpot. Less merited for quality of food than the buffet abundance – worthy hearty neighbourhood feed.
Dylan Lowe: The undisputed best udon in town – and I can endorse that. Apart from set menu the daily specials are worth sampling. Also taste their side dishes – the braised pork in cider and tempura are divine.
Vietnamese Restaurant · 42 Dean St, Soho, Greater London
Dylan Lowe: Vietnamese food brought to the realms of finer dining – and nothing short of sublime. Beautifully executed bowls of pho, plus small sharing dishes. Oh, and best cha gio pork spring rolls in Soho.
Dylan Lowe: Leading the charge of the Peruvian cuisine revolution in London, a tad pricey but certainly worth the palate trip. Ceviche is a must, best with sea bass; offal fest if you like. Try the corn cake.
Dylan Lowe: The recently-selected best street food cart in stationary form. Go with lunch menus in more tranquil settings, order platters with BBQ and a side. Bone marrow mash is spectacular. Brew their own beer.
