Berwick Street Market - review — Soho's Berwick Street Market is, helpfully, not actually on Berwick Street these days. Well, half of it is, but the real action - where three street-food traders take it in turns to holler for business in a temporary home - takes place halfway up and around the corner on Broadwick Street.

The London restaurants that grow their own produce — If you've eaten out recently in London, did you ask whether the rocket on your plate came from the roof, or how many metres away the urban meadow was? If you're in a restaurant worth knowing about in London, you may well have eaten food from the urban kitchen garden out the back.

London's best noodle bars — What: The first to make ramen headlines in London, and lovely for pre- or post-theatre trips. Any other time you'll have to queue. Stick to the simple porky tonkotsu for £11 and you can't go wrong.

Are you ready for Ramengeddon? Where to eat Japanese noodle soup in London — Two years ago it was discovered that several giant, steaming bowls of Japanese-style noodle broth were to crash onto Earth at any moment. While some of these were stopped mid-flight, others swerved into central London and yet more sloshed into the trendy, eastern parts of the city.

London's best noodle joints — What: A Londonised version, right, of the real thing, with rich broths and the option to pimp up your bowls with pipettes of extra fat. T22 is good - soy ramen, chicken, cock scratchings, chicken bone broth.

10 new London restaurants opening in autumn 2014 — What: Marcus Wareing, the Michelin-starred chef patron of Marcus restaurant at the Berkeley Hotel and the Gilbert Scott at the Renaissance Hotel in St. Pancras opens his first casual dining concept in Covent Garden, set over three floors.

Plus or ampersand? The branding battle on London's restaurant scene — In the first category, we have the plus sign, which is increasingly creeping into signage for bars and restaurants including Peg + Patriot, Sager + Wilde, Jackson + Rye and the new Yorkshire wraps business Hereford + York. A Danish café, Snaps + Rye, and a Soho yakitori venture, Blood + Wasabi, arrive soon.

Where to eat great cornbread in London — Tearable, served warm in its skillet, and has a lovely golden hue; eating it is like the food equivalent of hibernating under a duvet on a rainy day. 24 Seymour Place, W1; Caravan The melt-in-the-mouth jalapeno cornbread here is served with chipotle butter. Two words: completely addictive. Worth £3.50.

Take me to brinner: why #BreakfastForDinner is sweeping London — Brinner (breakfast for dinner) is the evening meal of choice. In London, 44 per cent of us have had it, with one in 10 revealing that they do this regularly, according to a recent survey. This isn't just about reaching for a bowl of granola as a guilty kitchen supper.

The evolution of London's food pop-ups — The 2014 London food pop-up is an unusual creature. In its early years it was a simple dinner in a disused space. Now it can take any form, it is ambitious, ageless, it has no particular fondness for season, and anyone - within reason - can manage it.
