Dominique Ansel's Blooming Hot Chocolate How do you improve one of London's most decadent hot chocolates? With a bit of a spectacle, of course. Located at Dominique Ansel Bakery, each piping hot cup is topped off with a perfect marshmallow bud coated in white chocolate which blooms as it melts. The bakery's milk and cookies shots and cronuts are also fellow culinary celebrities - and it all tastes delicious to boot.

Beigel Bake's Salted Beef Bagel After Action Bronson hailed Beigel Bake's seemingly nondescript salted beef bagels absolutely delicious (in much more colourful language), it's become a must visit for any culinary tourist. Despite the incredibly confusing presence of a competitor bagel store next door, the popularity of these savoury treats and mouthwatering thick slices of cured beef have made them a recurring sight on Instagram.

Padella's Cacio e Pepe Although this dish may not look like much, Borough Market neighbour Padella has been winning over hearts with their Cacio e Pepe (cheese and pepper) pasta. Their thick, freshly made pasta combined with a creamy yet fiery sauce is one of their signature dishes and it helps that it's priced under £10. Sometimes the simpler things in life are the most rewarding.

Barge House Breakfast in Bread Everybody loves a bread bowl, but Barge House takes presentation to the next level with their Breakfast in Bread dishes. Featuring a hollowed out sourdough loaf stuffed with bacon, sausage, tomatoes, leeks, mushrooms, spinach and finished with cheese and a ready-to-trickle egg, variations include their smoked salmon and chorizo offerings. Brunch, anybody?

Behold, the Crone (ice cream in a doughnut cone) 😋 #dumdumdoughnuts

Dum Dum Donutterie The doughnuts at Dum Dum Donutterie were made to be photographed with bold icing colours, powdered sugar and quirky details abounding. They're masters of the croissant doughnut hybrid and their new croissant ice cream cones - understandably named 'crones' - have been sweeping social media left and right.

Braised Pork Bao Seen the lines curling around Bao in Soho? They're all waiting for a chance to dive into Bao, a Taiwanese restaurant that serves up piping hot buns. The photographic standout is without a doubt the braised pork bao with juicy strips of pork sandwiched in a light bun, dusted with peanut powder. With new branches in Fitzrovia and Netil Market open, it's worth braving the queue if you're patient.

Gunpowder's Spicy Venison and Vermicelli Doughnut Another doughnut on the list, but this one's got a savoury twist. Indian restaurant Gunpowder has created this spiky little fellow, which consists of a tasty venison centre wrapped in a crunchy vermicelli. Served with a side of spicy tomato sauce for dipping, it's a dish with a lot of kick and a favourite amongst the London culinary crowd.
