Looking to get a few more dining notches under your belt? From wholesome, health-conscious cafés to trendy taqueria joints, we’ve searched the streets to bring you five of London’s best new restaurants to put on this month’s must-visit list…

Breddos Tacos, Soho

Breddos Tacos – brainchild of Street Feast stalwarts Nud Dudhia and Chris Whitney – has gone from Hackney street food staple to one of the city’s trendiest taqueria hotspots. Their new location in Soho’s bustling Carnaby Street will be no less inspiring, with a mouthwatering selection of charcoal-infused meats, tacos and tostadas, bounteous sharing plates and a specially designed pizza oven used to make their own version of traditional tlayudas – moreish Mexican pizzas. Breakfast tacos, quesadillas and cinnamon churro French toast will also make an appearance during the morning, as well as confit pork memelas (fried corn cakes) with black beans and scrambled eggs. And for after-dark antics, the downstairs bar will serve their own brewed beer, as well as tasty margaritas and 30 different types of mezcals.

26 Kingly Street, Soho, London W1B 5QD

Farm Girl at Sweaty Betty, Soho

Already one of our go-to stores for luxe activewear, Sweaty Betty’s flagship store at No1 Carnaby is giving us even more reason to get our bums into gear this season, with the launch of Farm Girl’s new Australian-inspired café. Set on the first floor of the sprawling space, shoppers can go from changing room to fitness class – they offer free exercise classes at this branch – to breakfast table. In true Farm Girl style, the café comes loaded with nutritious ingredients; serving up wholesome smoothies and build-your-own-breakfast bowls, lattes, tasty salads, toast and delicious gluten-free doughnuts. There’s also a superfood cocktail bar that you can hole up in post-workout – can you think of a better incentive than an acai-infused vodka shot post lunge-fest? We can’t.

1st Floor, 1 Carnaby Street, London W1 9QF

Olle, Soho

There’s no better place to get your Asian food fix than bustling Chinatown. But if you’re not in the mood for dumplings or sizzling Szechwan noodles, Soho’s latest meaty offering is guaranteed to get your taste buds excited. Bringing a Korean twist to London’s Chinese quarter is Olle – a Korean barbecue joint specialising in chargrilled meats and seafood, each cut cooked the right side of smoky and from the comfort of your own table. Devour the very best quality meats and seafood – think Japanese and American wagyu beef, Iberico pork and fresh tiger prawns – as well as traditional plates of Korean pancakes; beef rib stew; jjgae hot pot; and an Asian twist on KFC – finger lickin’ Korean Fried Chicken.

86-88 Shaftesbury Avenue, Chinatown, London W1D 5AY

The Coal Shed

Brighton favourite, The Coal Shed, is spreading its wings from Sussex shores into the cobbled streets of London’s Tower Bridge, bringing with it a brand new menu of meaty classics. Like its flagship namesake, it serves up a succulent selection of Josper-grilled steaks, sourced from the Scottish Highlands and cooked on hot coals to guarantee that signature smoky aroma. Fresh seafood will be shipped in every day straight from the South coast – think lobsters, monkfish, smoked salmon, turbot and fresh scallops – to serve alongside meaty cuts of chateaubriand, porterhouse and bone-in prime rib. Cocktails come in the form of Florist’s Thorn – vodka, botanique wine, hibiscus and berry shrub; and Bitterella – with gin, Aperol, grapefruit, oleo saccharum and bitters. Plus, on a Monday it’s BYO, so you can sink your steak with a side of your favourite Malbec for just £5 corkage. Winning.

Unit 3, 1 One Tower Bridge, 4 Crown Square, Tower Bridge, London SE1 2SE; open from 16th October

The Frog by Adam Handling, Covent Garden

Award-winning chef Adam Handling knows a thing or two about cultivating the perfect plate – if you’ve ever tried the food at his flagship eatery, The Frog E1, you’ll be familiar with his creative, theatrical fare. Setting up sticks in Covent Garden, The Frog will be a much fancier affair, showcasing the best emerging talent on the food scene, a newly opened deli and a speakeasy-style basement bar serving up sumptuous cocktails and delicious vintages. The menu will change weekly and make use of seasonal British ingredients; think Iberico pork with cauliflower and kimchi; truffled mac and cheese with added lobster; octopus, sour cream, black garlic and dulse; and cheese and truffle doughnuts. Excited much?

34-38 Southampton Street, Covent Garden, London WC2E 7HF

Villa Mama, Chelsea

For a taste of the exotic, Villa Mama – Chelsea’s hottest new food haunt – draws on owner Roaya Saleh’s rich Bahraini heritage and her worldly travels, with seasonal, home-style dishes fusing the flavours and culinary traditions from across the Khaleej, Persia and beyond. ‘Mezzeh’ dishes include ‘Khubus’, a Tandoor-cooked flatbread, served with meyhawa, a Bahraini speciality of fermented sardine sauce; ‘Mathrooba', slow-cooked chicken, rice and cracked wheat, with larger plates such as 'Sayadieh’, turbot cooked in fragrant stock with pilaf and crisp onions. Look forward to an array of decadent desserts too, including rosewater rice pudding with almonds and pomegranate and ‘Um Ali’, an Egyptian bread and butter pudding, all served in a charming, bohemian setting with marble-topped tables and walls shrouded in bright, colourful fabrics. Utterly dreamy.

25-27 Elystan Street, Chelsea, London SW3 3NT
