Meat & Shake Tooting

27 user reviews 4

Struggling to find a decent casual dining spot in South London. Fear not, the team at Meat & Shake are here to help. The venue has made a name for itself by serving fine cuts of seasoned halal meat. Whether you chewing your way through a huge, sauce slather steak, chomping into succulent brisket or tucking into a hearty burger, this venue is sure to leave a positive mark on you. The venue's sister restaurant of the same name is based in Ealing and offers the same great experience for West London's foodies to enjoy.

If you're craving some seriously good BBQ food, you don't need to book a flight to Memphis. Hop on the train to Camden, where Porky's offers deliciously deep-fried, juicy southern-fried chicken, whisky by the glass and a rock 'n' roll playlist to boot. 

Seek out your nearest Dirty Bones because these NYC-inspired bars and restaurants have got you covered for all your favourite American eats. From indulgent chicken & waffles, to burnt onion and ale short ribs and spicy chicken burgers, they're all about tasty food, unqiue cocktails and great music.

Wahlburgers

Owned by the one and only Mark Wahlberg and his brothers Paul and Donnie, this American-style burger restaurant is serving up some of the most serious patties in Covent Garden. From triple decker monsters and adult frappes, to quirky cocktails and thick cut fries, it's one of the best diners in London.

Sweet Chick

Everything about Sweet Chicks screams USA. Part-owned by popular American rapper Nas, the restaurant originated in New York and specialises in dishing up succulent fried chicken and waffles alongside other native classics such as shrimps and grits as well as mac n' cheese.
