You're in London, it's late and your belly is rumbling. Never fear, there are lots of options for midnight snacks in the capital.
Tucked away in the heart of busy China Town, Tokyo Diner is open until midnight 365 days a year, and although it's often packed, you'll rarely have to wait more a few minutes to be seated. The simple menu comprises sushi, sashimi, curries and other hearty rice dishes. Prices are very reasonable and there's no tipping allowed.
The Troubadour in Earl's Court has been an institution on London's dining and culture scene since it opened in the 1950s. The downstairs venue has hosted acts including Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and Paul Simon and is still going strong today. At the restaurant – which is open until midnight seven days a week – you'll find a wide range of European and British dishes.
Beigel Bake – Brick Lane Bakery
Beigel Bake (159 Brick Lane, 020 7729 0616) has been delighting hungry East London revellers for over 35 years now. Open 24 hours a day, its specialty is hot salt beef bagels with gherkin and English mustard. Classic smoked salmon and cream cheese bagels are another favourite. It's takeout only, but no one will judge you for tucking in to your late-night treat as soon as you get out the door.
