Kerb Camden Market, Camden
Quite possibly the OG Mexican taco truck in London, Luardos has been going strong since 2007, perfecting the art of the fresh taco, burrito, and now, torta, at their permanent spot at Kerb Camden Market. They are close to undefeated when it comes to authentic flavor, adding in new menu options only once they're absolutely bulletproof. With two trucks and one stand, these guys get around—they're available for catering, too.

Part of a massive rehaul of the formerly mediocre Camden Lock food market is Killa Dilla, Willy Leigh and Josh Whiting's cheesy, fatty, delicious take on the American version of the Mexican quesadilla. These 'dillas come with a sizeable dousing of melted cheese and meat. Needless to say, this is one of the very best, most indulgent snacks, whether you go for the smoked beef short-rib or the succulent chicken thigh version.
People all around London flock to Primrose Hill for the breathtaking 360 degree view. On summer days the hill is covered in picnickers taking in the sun. On winter days, there's always a dog walker or two, and when it snows, this is a prime sledding park.

We were sad to see Triyoga's beautiful, Primrose Hill location go but are more than satisfied with its new airy, Camden replacement. Beyond the well-known yoga and Pilates classes—by far, some of the best the city has to offer—it's also worth checking out the infrared sauna sessions, craniosacral massage, intuitive readings, and nutritional, EFT, and CBT therapy (depending on what you're after). Additional services are offered at Triyoga locations in Covent Garden, Soho, and Chelsea.
