Here’s a list of all the London restaurants from Somebody Feed Phil season 3. The Netflix show sees Phil Rosenthal sample some of the best foods from all over the world. Season 3, episode 3 saw Phil and friends work their way around The Big Smoke.
Phil visited a variety of restaurants during episode 3. The former Everybody Loves Raymond writer took eating out to the next level as he sampled everything London had to offer, from fish and chips to bubble and squeak, afternoon tea, and turbot. Phil’s London episode featured many familiar faces on the UK food scene including Jay Rayner, Nigella Lawson, and Tomos Parry.
Episode 3 kicked off with Phil standing outside Fortnum & Mason eating “his favorite store-bought cookies“, AKA dark chocolate coated chocolate pearl biscuits. The TV writer revealed a love for London which developed after watching Mary Poppins as a kid. He said, “I don’t know what it was about this movie. But at four years old I knew who I was going to marry. I was going to marry Julie Andrews.” Besides observing the feel of the place, from the old buildings to its history, Phil seemed to love tasting the food in England’s capital. He said he never wanted to go to London because he’d heard the food was “lousy“, but thanks to the Netflix show, his mind may have been changed.
Phil’s London food journey started in Ken’s Fish Bar. Jay Rayner took Phil to grab some fish and chips – a British delicacy. There’s no better way to kick off the culinary experience than to chow down some battered cod and chips, doused in vinegar and sprinkled with salt. Ken’s Fish Bar is located on Half Moon Lane in Dulwich, London.
Phil and his friend, Dan Patterson, headed to Yotam Ottolenghi’s Rovi next. The vegetable-focused London restaurant provided Phil with a taste of Israeli cuisine. Together, he and Dan tried cooled lemon yogurt with hot tomatoes, leek, grilled onions, and green gazpacho, as well as shakshuka. Michelin-starred Rovi is located in Fitzrovia, London.
From fine dining to eating on-the-go, Phil met Stephen and David of The Happy Pear. The trio jogged, ran, and did push-ups around Hampstead Heath, as well as trying out some foods. Artichoke was their first stop, a family-run greengrocer. Phil described it as a “jewel box of a fruit store“. Artichoke stocks fruit and veg from all over the world including mangoes from Pakistan and figs from Lebanon. Find Artichoke in London’s Hampstead Village.
Les Filles was Phil’s next stop: a bakery and coffee shop. Phil, Stephen, and David were met with a delicious-looking breakfast spread. Les Filles offers Moroccan cuisine and Phil had the pleasure of trying out rose tea porridge, beetroot hummus with pomegranate, and chia pudding with chocolate ganache. Les Filles Kitchen is owned by sisters Sonia and Hayet Zaame and can be found on Heath Street in Hampstead.
For anyone lookING for some of the best espresso in London, Happy Pear duo David and Stephen recommend heading to Ginger & White. And, if the Netflix show is anything to go by, the carrot cake looks pretty good, too. Located on Perrin’s Court, Hampstead, Ginger & White also offers breakfast, sandwiches, and salads.
Leaving Hampstead Village behind, Phil then visited Borough Market, his “favorite place in all of London“. Phil met his wife, Monica, and their friends, Tom and Cathy McGowan, to try out the market food. They enjoyed bubble and squeak breakfast baps at Maria’s Market Cafe. Phil also visited Kappacasein for a great-looking toastie which he thinks is the “world’s best” grilled cheese. Borough Market is located on Southwark Street and is open Monday to Saturday.
The Netflix show then took Phil to Rochelle Canteen. There he met actress Lady Frederick Windsor, AKA Sophie Winkleman. Rochelle Canteen is located in an 1800s school bikeshed in Shoreditch. The restaurant is run by Margo Henderson, wife of chef Fergus Henderson. Phil and Sophie enjoyed some British delights at Rochelle Canteen including scrambled eggs on toast, chicken and leek pie, and a pork and fennel dish. Find Rochelle Canteen on Playground Gardens, Shoreditch.
As well as great food, it turns out that London also has a lot to offer when it comes to drinks. Anyone looking to try out one of the world’s best martinis should get themselves down to Dukes, London. The bar can be found in Mayfair, at 35 St James’s Place. Phil, Monica, and the Great British Bake Off’s Liam Charles tasted the cocktails. Judging by their reactions, Duke’s is certainly worth a visit.
Savory donuts with anchovy and whole wild turbot were next on the menu for Phil. He and Nigella Lawson dined at seafood-focused restaurant BRAT which is run by chef Tomos Parry. BRAT is located in Shoreditch and takes its inspiration from “Basque restaurants like the ones in San Sebastian” according to The Staff Canteen. The restaurant is Michelin starred and offers oysters, cod’s roe, lemon sole, and much more.
Entrepreneur James Perkins and his wife, Sophie Taylor, welcomed Phil into their home – Aynhoe Park. After arriving at the eclectic estate, Phil enjoyed dishes cooked by Australian chef Brett Graham. For starters, they had huge 14-year-old oysters. The enormous seafood dish was followed by a rack of fellow deer. Aynhoe Park, located in the Cotswolds countryside, is available to hire for weddings, parties, and corporate retreats. Phil also mentioned that Brett’s food is served at his two Michelin starred restaurant, The Ledbury, which is located in Notting Hill.
Rounding off Phils’s trip, he ensured to finish things on a high. By this point, viewers may have been concerned that Phil was set to pop given the amount of food he had consumed. He joked during the final dinner that the theme of the Somebody Feed Phil episode was “gluttony“. Phil was joined by everyone who had been on the episode and together they dined at modern Indian restaurant Dishoom. Phil and co. tasted a breakfast naan roll filled with double bacon and egg, lamb chops, chili chicken, okra fries, and much more. Dishoom has five London restaurants; Kensington, Shoreditch, King’s Cross, Carnaby, and Covent Garden. One element of the eatery that Phil particularly liked was the fact that for every meal Dishoom sells, they give a meal to underprivileged kids in both India and the UK.
