Hook offers a modern twist on an English classic with a menu full of creative variations of fish and chips, including crispy sea bass with pancakes, seaweed-salted chips and Southern-style fried sardines. With humble beginnings as a Dublin market stall, it wasn’t long before the popularity of new-school fish and chips caught on and Hook evolved into the busy restaurant it is today. Diners share long, communal tables in a stripped back space – it’s the food that takes centre stage here.

La Patagonia

Restaurant, Argentina, $$$

La Patagonia brings Argentinian flavour to Camden with a barrio-style restaurant and an exceptionally meaty menu (perhaps not a great choice for vegetarians). There’s an impressive selection of steaks on offer, from sirloin to short rib, accompanied by a long list of Argentinian wines. The restaurant also hosts regular tango music nights.

Ma Petite Jamaica is the go-to place for rum cocktails, jerk chicken and a reggae soundtrack. If you’re after a tropical fix, London’s first Caribbean diner won’t disappoint; just keep in mind that portions (including the small plates) are big. Go hungry, leave satisfied.
