Food in the Hood: Kings Cross
Words by Bea Mustocea, Friday 11 August 2017

King's Cross historically ambiguous backbone has been a canvas for evolution and redevelopment, a regenerative power heavily felt on the level of its food scene. The  industrial spaces have lent their brickwork to numerous concept restaurants, harbouring some of the best in the city. With all the options it might be hard to choose and this is why we're here to help.

Cuckooz presents our top 5 picks for nosh near our Kings Cross nests...

 

1.    Dishoom

 

With design taking inspiration from the Parsi cafés of Mumbai, with 1920s memorabilia, this concept restaurant delivers both in terms of aesthetics and cuisine, both aspects accounting for its massive popularity on the London food scene. If the queues outside the restaurant don’t convince you of Dishoom’s worth, then let extraordinary Indian cuisine do.

 

 

2.    The Greek Larder

 

Theodore Kyriakou’s little Greek corner in the heart of King’s Cross revitalizes any expectations you had of Greek cuisine. Meze dishes and other sharing-friendly assortments encourage you to mix and match, experiencing both authentic rustic Greek tastes and Kyriakou’s unique vision.

 

3.    Skip Garden Kitchen

 

A Cuckooz favourite, Skip Garden Kitchen is the epitome of the local living concept. All-locally sourced from its communal garden supported by local volunteers, Skip Garden Kitchen is both an education in sustainable food and a journey into vegetarian classics. See you on Saturday brunch!

 

4.    The Driver

 

With all the new developments in the area, it might be hard to find a restaurant devoted to unpretentious food evocative of British pub traditions. This gastropub is devoted to just that, marking the intersection between pub and party space.

 

 

5.    MeatLiquor N1

 

The now-defunct MEATLiquor Bond Street lent both its aesthetics and its cult Dead Hippy burgers to the Islington venue. A booking system has been implied to make sure that all your punk dreams get satisfied without a wait and you get to enjoy this upgraded diner experience with impeccable US-Style burgers.
