Eye-Opening Map Shows The Dirtiest Places To Eat In London (The Results Are Quite Surprising)

You know that black soot that suddenly appears in your nose when you first move to London, despite you definitely not walking past a coal mine?

Well, you’re in the big smoke now and that should have been your first clue as to the filth you were about to embrace.

Not experienced it? You’re probably a London native, which means you were born with bronchi made of steel.

Your stomach however, is not immune to the fact that there are 358 restaurants in the capital with a zero star hygiene rating.

And it’s not something that’s reserved for last ditch kebab options at 4am. ITV has revealed that Westminster has one of the highest numbers of zero rated restaurants in a borough, with 25 sub-par servers. Perhaps it’s a dirty attack on politicians, but we doubt it and it’s gross.

Camden doesn’t fair well either if you don’t want to spend tomorrow on the toilet whereas your guts are totally safe in Havering.

Starting to doubt your local takeaway? Check their rating at the FSA’s website and choose where next to chow down carefully.
