No matter how large or small your appetite, the room service menu at The Langham, London is bound to entice. Omelets, American-style pancakes, grilled kippers, French toast or one of the breakfast sets (particularly the champagne breakfast, with its half bottle of Laurent-Perrier) are all fine ways to start the day, though the best selection comes between noon and 11 p.m. The all-day dining menu at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel includes enticing bites like Oxspring air-dried ham with watermelon and arugula; Cornish crab with tomato and avocado; and sesame-crusted calamari with sweet and sour dipping sauce as starters. Light snacks include a mezze platter, a lobster BLT and a thin crust pizza with your choice of topping. An extensive caviar selection is offered, with Spanish, French and Belgian eggs available, and if you desire an additional taste of the sea, you can enjoy briny Belle Isle oysters or a selection of tuna and salmon sushi. Main courses reflect the luxury hotel’s international clientele, with options from British favorites like beer battered haddock and chips or homemade steak pie to spaghetti Bolognese and a lovely Indian-style chicken makhani. Simple grilled steaks and whole fish are also available, and served with your choice of sauce and sides like truffled coleslaw, grilled Portobello mushrooms or glazed carrots. For dessert, don’t miss the brioche and butter pudding, the artisanal ice cream pots or the salted caramel chocolate brownies.
