Christmas Food Porn

One of the best things about being in London at Christmas time is the sheer amount of festive food on offer. Hot, hearty and packed with big wintery flavours – the way to finding Christmas spirit is most definitely through your stomach. But London’s come a long way from the classic turkey and stuffing sandwich and, apparently, places are doing more than just adding a dollop of cranberry sauce to their dishes and calling it ‘The Merry Something-or-other’. Here’s four of the yummiest, scrummiest Christmas eats in town:

Brgr.co ‘Xms Brgr’

This year, BRGR.CO have upped their A game in the meat stakes and are offering up a venison burger of epic proportions. The juicy venison patty is teamed with stilton, caramelised onions, redcurrant jelly and roasted chestnuts, all presented in a toasted demi-brioche bun. If you really want to make a meal of it, there is the option of adding fries, a hot drink and a mince pie for £15. We also like the sound of the spiked Gingerbread Shake… ’tis the season, after all!

Melt Room ‘Christmas Melt’

You can never go wrong with a melted cheese sandwich, especially this Christmas version from Melt Room. Roast turkey, stuffing, Swiss cheese, cranberry sauce and rosemary is all gloriously packed between two slices of potato sourdough bread. Clutching this wad of hot, melty goodness between cold fingers whilst walking around Soho will be one mighty mood-lifter during Christmas shopping madness.

Pod ‘Big Christmas Lunch’

Not all festive food has to be deliciously unhealthy for you and Pod are here to prove it with their Big Christmas Lunch. With the idea of a Christmas pre-tox in mind, Pod teams turkey with winter veg and a cranberry and stuffing sprinkle over three grain rice. And if you’ve really been hitting the mulled wine a bit too heavily this season, wash it all down with a vitamin C-packed Christmas Boost Blitz, and think about all the chocolate you’ll be allowed to scoff on Christmas Day.

Top Dog ‘Christmas Dog in a Blanket’

It’s no secret – us Brits are obsessed with pigs in blankets at Christmas. Top Dog has been wise enough to jump on this obsession and create for us the mother of all pigs in blankets: the Christmas Dog in a Blanket. Oh yes – an artisanal smoked pork sausage comes wrapped in bacon and is topped with crispy shallots, pan-fried sage and cranberry sauce, accompanied by sweet potato fries. This is a hot dog with sleigh bells on.
