how to succeed as a foodie writer in london

If you’re a foodie visiting London, you’re probably excited about all the food options available. And we can confirm: the food scene in this beautiful city is never ending!

To achieve the heights of gustatory delight and foodie success, keep these pieces of advice in mind:

1. Food Variety


London has a ton of food variety, so we recommend you do your research to go with the options that best fit your blog. Whether you’re thinking of breakfast, brunch, or dessert, there is a perfect spot for you in this city!

A couple of plates to consider include:

  • A full English breakfast. This comes with eggs, sausage, bacon, baked beans, and grilled tomato. With vegetarianism being popular among urbanites, there are many vegetarian takes on the English breakfast, too. A popular restaurant for this meal is The Ivy, which has locations all over London.


  • If you’re looking for a brunch option, consider some scones! In London, scones are not viewed as a breakfast food but an afternoon treat. You’ll often find plain scones as well as scones with raisins and nuts. For the scone of your life, go to Gail’s Bakery!
  • In London for a Sunday afternoon? If so, you need to try the Sunday Roast. This is a traditional meal you will find in most pubs. This plate consists of roast meat with a side of roasted potatoes, veggies, and Yorkshire Pudding – not to mention a lot of gravy!


The dining options in this city are endless, making it the perfect place for a foodie writer like yourself!

2. Events


Stay up to date with local events happening in each district. For example, The London Dessert Festival happens once a year in August. Every dessert you can think of will be on the menu. There is even a chocolate wall and waterfalls of sprinkles. As a foodie, you have to be at this memorable event if you’re in London. 

If you’re attending, be prepared to indulge in ice cream, donuts, milkshakes, cake, macaroons, and any other sweet food you can envision. We guarantee you will have the experience of a lifetime filled with stories to tell your followers.

We also want to add that you can take cooking classes in London. This is a fantastic and fun way to learn how to cook traditional meals and bring home an authentic taste of this city.

3. Secure Offsite Assets


Foodies are often writers who travel, so it is absolutely vital that you keep your valuables in a safe location, rather than toting them around from one glamorous hotel to another. That’s why having secure vault storage to keep valuable assets offsite is a must. The best strategy to protect your assets is to seek out storage vault services in London. These financial establishments will not only protect your valuables but also deliver them to you in a timely, secure manner while you’re traveling.

4. Social Media


This brings us to our final piece of advice. You want to stay connected with your followers and fans by continuously updating your social media. Share with others what you had for breakfast or a little bit about that little hidden gem of a restaurant in London.

Also, if you prefer, you can journal about your experiences and share them online once you arrive back home. Some travelers prefer this as opposed to sharing on the go. So, as you’re in this breath-taking city, share your experiences with others while they’re fresh in your mind or jot them down in a notebook while having your afternoon tea.

We wish you the best of luck in your travel endeavors and hope the food journey is everything you expected it to be. Happy eating!
