Las Iguanas

In Restaurants on July 8, 2010 at 5:53 pm

Looking for some Latin flavor?  Las Iguanas serves food from countries such as Mexico, Brazil, Spain, and Puerto Rico… just to name a few.  There’s ample seating indoors and outdoors so no reservations are necessary, but recommended.    They offer a lunch special with generous sized portions starting at £6.90 Monday to Friday with selections like a burrito, sweet potato fishcakes or asparagus salad.   Their kids’ menu is also excellent, moderately priced and big enough to fill their tummies.  Note that they also have organic baby food – complimentary!   Close to Waterloo station and on the South Bank, it’s a hot spot for both tourists and locals.    Highly recommended so be sure to check the location nearest to you!


Gourmet Burger Kitchen

With 51 locations throughout England, Gourmet Burger Kitchen serves one of the best burgers in town!  Typically, you would order your food, pay and have a seat while your food gets prepared and brought to your table.  Unlike most locations, GBK in Tower Bridge has table service and they’re the only location which offers two sized burgers to choose from.  Normally I’d get the regular sized burger but this time around I opted for the smaller size which was filling enough, with a side of chips of course!  Just right next door to the Clink Prison Museum (don’t fret, it’s not that creepy) and a short walk away from St. Katharine’s Dock, it’s a sure spot for lunch or dinner.   They’ve also installed a lift to the upstairs restaurant making it perfect for those with buggies.
