Get a taste of America this weekend with our top five spots for American-style treats in London
Apple Pie from Chicken Shop. Chicken Shop’s apple pie is often considered a slice of home for many Americans living in the city. Served in a large farmhouse dish, the pie is brought to your table for you to make the incredibly difficult choice of ordering just one slice or the entire dish. Filled with a generous helping of apple slices spiced with nutmeg and cinnamon, the deep-dish pie is served with vanilla ice cream or a jug of cream.
Brownie from Konditor & Cook. We challenge you to find a better brownie than the fudgepacker from Konditor & Cook. This decadent brownie is made with rich dark chocolate chips, smooth vanilla fudge and ripples of indulgent salted caramel. With a percentage of the profits going to The Quest, this brownie not only tastes good but does good too.
Pie from Brett & Bailey. Why choose between pumpkin and pecan pie when you can have both! The fantastic brains behind Brett & Bailey have created the perfect combination. Subtlety spiced pumpkin custard is balanced above a robust layer of gooey maple syrup covered pecans.
Milkshake from Stax Diner. While Stax is famous for their dishes from the American Deep South, we strongly recommend saving room for one of their milkshakes the next time you’re there. One of our favourites is the Graceland, a hard-shake made with peanut butter, banana, rum, vanilla and whipped cream.
Doughnut from Crosstown Doughnuts. Crosstown Doughnuts faces serious competition for London’s number one doughnut spot, however, one of their latest offerings has pushed them ahead of the others. The Peanut Butter Berry is an indulgent sourdough square decorated with rich, smooth peanut butter, tangy homemade blackberry compote and a sprinkling of toasted peanuts.
