Festive specials for foodies: Insanely good nosh you don’t want to miss

Get your tastebuds in a twist

Once upon a time, Christmas food was (albeit tasty) pretty predictable. With turkey, tatties, and the obligatory sprouts, you always knew what you were getting.

Now, you can ride the sleigh to food heaven, for a whole host of sensory delights.  

We’re talking battered pigs in blankets, mince pie ice-cream, and turkey waffles!

Thanks to our festive pals over at London On The Inside, the capital’s biggest independent lifestyle publication, they’ve collated the most playful palatepleasers this December.

So, to get your tastebuds in a twist, check out the list below.

Poppies’ Giant Battered Pigs in Blankets

Courtesy of Poppies fish and chip shop, this London eaterie is dishing up giant battered pigs in blankets to die for.

With a jumbo sausage wrapped in smoked streaky bacon and battered in Poppies’ signature batter, seriously, what’s not to love?!  

Grab one before you regret it at one of their locations in Camden, Soho, or Spitalfields.

Pizzeria Mozza’s Brussels Sprout Pizza

This reminds us of being given parsnips cut into chip shapes as kids to get veggies down us.

By sprinkling sprouts on a pizza, you’ll be eating one of your five a day while sinking your teeth into the deluxe cheese fest at Pizzeria Mozza.

Spicing up their signature dough, this delicacy will be topped with Brussels sprouts, pancetta, mozzarella, garlic and red onion.

Better yet, you can have this while dining in or as a takeout.

Hackney Gelato’s Mince Pie Ice Cream

If you’re a Ben & Jerry’s fanatic like us, take a break from the Cookie Dough and swap it for the festive flavour.

This limited-edition recipe is packed with plump raisins, chunks of shortcrust pastry, a liberal splash of Pedro Ximenez sherry, and a sprinkle of spices to whip it into a creamy gelato.

You don’t even need to leave your sofa for this one, as it’s available online via Ocado.

Chick ‘n’ Sours’ Christmas Dinner

If ever a photo made your eyes pop from your head, just look at this guy!

We’re talking next level fried chicken crammed into a succulent burger that will bring out your inner Oliver Twist, asking for more.

This belly-gratifier includes a fried thigh topped with Kewpie mayo, iceberg lettuce, redcurrant hoi sin sauce, smoky pink kraut, and pigs in blankets. Prepare to get messy!

Get noshing with a trip to Chick ‘n’ Sours in Haggerston, Covent Garden, or Whitechapel.

The Breakfast Club’s Turkey Waffle Dinner

In hot competition with the Chick ‘n’ Sours’ Christmas Dinner, this epic feast is fit for Santa.

Boasting buttermilk fried turkey, pigs in blankets, roast sprouts, pecans, and sage all atop a goose fat potato waffle, doused in gravy, this is one you won’t want to share.

To treat yourself, take a trip to The Breakfast Club pronto. We won’t tell if you buy one from each location dotted around London Bridge, Soho, Canary Wharf and Spitalfields.
