Tell us more: Taste of London takes place in the open air at Regent's Park. Chefs from over 40 of London's best restaurants each cook three dishes for guests to try, with each restaurant boasting one star dish that's made exclusively for the festival, as well as signature dishes from the restaurant.
Restaurants returning to Taste of London this year include Borough Market’s stylish Portuguese joint Bar Douro and delectable Basque spot Sagardi. Meanwhile, smoky, meaty goodness comes by way of Berber & Q, and Lina Stores is sure to delight with its sumptuous pasta dishes.
Pop Brixton hot-spot Smoke & Salt and James Cochran’s Islington newbie 12:51 are bringing their exquisite seasonal small plates to the festival, while Chinese fine dining is covered in the hands of Michelin-starred chef Andrew Wong and his latest venture Kym’s.
Sibling-run restaurant group JKS are bringing three of their world-class Asian-fusion restaurants – Taiwanese spot Bao, modern Sri Lankan joint Hoppers, and new curry spot Brigadiers – to Taste of London. And food-for-a-good-cause comes by way of the Action Against Hunger stand. Excitingly, LA mini chain Eggslut – which is opening its first European outpost on Notting Hill's Portobello Road this August – is previewing its yolky wares at Taste of London this year.
Around the site there's the chance to buy exclusive produce while soaking up all the atmosphere of a summer festival. Live music stands can be found dotted throughout the grounds, while experience-led bars provide the chance to enjoy champagne and craft beer tasting, or cocktail making.
