This week will go down in history as the week we (England) formally began the process of leaving the EU, following the Brexit referendum results last year. Wednesday 29th March will be known from this day forward as the day ‘Great‘ Britain officially triggered Article 50 – kicking off the two-year process of #Brexiting the European Union… 💔🇪🇺👋
If, like me, you are a Londoner identifying with the 59.9% majority who voted Remain, you have probably had a pretty tough time swallowing this. This dreaded day was not something you ever wanted to happen and now you find yourself submerged in misery, plunged into darkness. Consumed by fond memories of day trips to France. Melancholic about the now endangered, formerly cheap as chips Ryanair European city breaks. Waving farewell to your favourite, reasonably priced European brands…
But it doesn’t have to be like this, fear not Londoners! Rejoice in the knowledge that I, the piggiest of all piglets, have compiled a comprehensive list of The Best Comfort Food in London, to help us eat our way through this sad time. At times like this, when there is next to nothing you can do to salvage a situation, I have found you can always rely on food. Food won’t leave you. Food can provide the best kind of comfort. GLORIOUSLY DEEP FRIED, CHEEZ COVERED, SUGAR SOAKED, COMFORT. Stuffing your face to the point of no return will (with any luck) bring on a self-induced food coma. Binging to the state of near combustion is likely to make us sleepy, easing us into a state of submission, surrendering our sassiness and accepting defeat.
Now, I’d love to say I ate all of the following food for research purposes, but that would be a flat out lie. As my Instagram followers will know, I just so happen to be one of those God awful people who feel obliged to take photos of all my favourite food – so these images were conveniently on hand! The plus side of this, is I have eaten my way around London with gusto, and consider myself fairly well versed with the many, many places to eat. This makes me the ideal candidate to recommend places for you to stuff you face and embrace the #BrexitBinge.
