Christmas shopping is one of those activities that divides opinion. Whilst some savour the ritual, others see it as another thing to tick off the to-do list. But at Secret London, we’ve found the best way to enjoy this inevitable task, is to just make a day of it. So we’ve rounded up some of our fave foodie spots for a pre-Christmas meal out with friends and family at Westfield London (White City) and Westfield Stratford City – along with some banging deals to scoop up on shopping weekend between Black Friday and Cyber Monday while you’re there!
The day we discovered it was possible to eat high-quality steak regularly without breaking the bank, our lives quite literally changed forever. Flat Iron’s affordable menu offers meat lovers the chance to indulge in tender cuts, leaving enough budget to go to town on their irresistible sides too. Pair your steak with anything from beef dripping chips to crispy bone marrow garlic mash – but be sure to save some room for dessert. Their homemade soft serve is on the house!
Serving outstanding sushi, yakitori sticks, and salads, Sticks’N’Sushi treats diners to the best in Japanese cuisine in a tasteful ‘Japandi’ setting. Think Japanese minimalism meets the cool but cosy natural tones of Scandinavia! There are also a number of excellent plant-based options, as well as unique, Japanese-inspired cocktails to pair with your meal.
When it comes to pizza, the proof is really in the prove. And Pizza Pilgrims delicious, chewy, slow proved dough speaks for itself. Opt for one of their classic Neapolitan pizzas or build your own with a pesto, bianca, marinara, or margherita base and an array of toppings sourced from Italy.
Never has the saying ‘we eat with our eyes’ rang more true than with Bindas Eatery. Putting a refreshing twist on authentic Indian dishes, the vibrant melting pot menu reflects the owner’s time spent in India, Europe, North Africa and Asia. And it’s just as delightful to look at as it is to eat! Graze on street eats such as prawn tacos and chatpatta corn ribs before tucking into hearty mains like Keralan katsu, chipotle prawn tikka and lamb biryani.

Complete with an exclusive Baba lounge and shisha terrace, Lokma offers guests an authentic Turkish dining experience. The traditional menu includes luxurious cold mezze dips and stuffed vine leaves, the perfect thing to start on before getting stuck into the mains. Choose from an array of hot mezze dishes, meat and seafood from the charcoal grill and doner bar, as well as veggie and vegan options such as falafel and stuffed peppers.
‘Tis the season to celebrate, and nothing says celebration like a glass of bubbles. So naturally, Prosecco Cafe is top of the agenda when it’s time to clink glasses. But as well as the finest Italian fizz, you can also dine on delectable cicchetti, antipasti, pasta, and pizza. Saluti!
Even the most enthusiastic of meat eaters are guaranteed to be bowled over by Neat Burger’s sustainable, plant-based patties. Offering everything from fake beef and chicken to brisket, the menu delivers all the variety of a classic meat burger menu – and we haven’t even got started on the toppings yet! There are so many options to choose from, but some of our favourites are the Kimchi Crunch with gochujang sauce and crispy onions, and the Smash Daddy with double cheez, grilled onion and stack sauce.
