There are two desperate points in any given day: first thing in the morning, and last thing at night. In the AM, most of us don’t fully shake off our slumber until our first cup of coffee. Come PM, if any alcohol has passed our lips, our body weeps for fried chicken.
Nay, even without alcohol.
London as a city is beyond Starbucks. It’s probably the only place you don’t have to queue for your cuppa. So intense are our hankerings for the black stuff that Sam Floy created a map for Medium that shows you the biggest concentration of coffee shops in the city.
You’ll be hard pressed to find a decent flat white in Forest Hill, but Belsize Park, Westminster and Hampstead is where it’s at for the coffee connoisseur in you.
And because fried chicken has well and truly caught up to the burger and bao foodie trend, he also did one for crispy, meaty joy for when Chicken Cottage just won’t cut it. You’ll want to make your way to Holloway, Stratford and Tottenham.
