As a American living in the UK it is normal and expected to become homesick from time-to-time. While the Americans and English have many similarities in terms of lifestyle and interests, there are always going to be some differences that are likely to make any American feel slightly homesick.
Britain may well have one of the best tea selections in the work, however many Americans wake up craving nothing but an an omelet and a hot cup of filtered coffee.
Below we have put together a guide on London’s top spots for any homesick American living in the London:
The BEST BURGERS in London
There are many great spots in London for an old-school American burger. While there is the obvious Shake Shack and Five Guys, for an burger to remember visit the Burger & Lobster for a Beast Burger. A 10 oz burger served with lobster, brie and truffles. For a more traditional- but just as memorable- burger, take a trip to Honest Burgers.
The BEST STEAK in London
Like Morton’s or Smith & Wollensky back in Manhattan, The Hawksmoor offers well-aged porterhouse steaks in sizes both large and small.
The BEST BARS to meet fellow Americans in London
Irish pubs are always a safe bet if you want to spend some time with some fellow Americans. Pubs like O’Neills are dotted all around London. Check out The O’Neills just around the corner from us in Soho, for some American classics like Guns N’ Roses.
The BEST AMERICAN FILTERED COFFEE in London
Coffee to-go is perhaps most Americans biggest loves. Unfortunately for Americans in London, the Brits favor tea and the rest of Europe almost exclusively consumes expresso. Visit the Monmouth Coffee Company just around the corner from us in Covent Garden for the to-go coffee that all Americans love.
The BEST BEER PONG in London
Visit the Sink in Shoreditch for a night of American Beer-Pong, mini-burgers and fries.
The BEST PLACE FOR AN AMERICAN BREAKFAST in London
One thing that is definitely worth missing home over is your local diner, usually a ‘Sal’s’ or ‘Joe’s’, that serves all of the best on a Sunday morning. For some hearty pancakes, fried eggs, sausage, bacon and gritz to die for, visit The Breakfast Club.
