Westfield London's Best Jubileeats

 Jubilee Hero

There is no better way to celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s 70-year reign than filling our stomachs with food that would make the collective heads of those who were around to see her coronation spin.

We’re (thankfully) a far cry from chicken doused in curry powder-laden mayo being considered a culinary delicacy, and our food and beverage retailers have been hard at work concocting a fantastic range of jubilee-themed dishes fit for a queen!


Spaghetti & Lobster - Spaghetti House

The nation’s history with seafaring and seafood is well-documented, so why not try some of the best the ocean has to offer on your next visit?

Catch Me is reimagining a British classic with their “Lobster & Crayfish Coronation” – a spin on their hugely-popular lobster roll featuring coronation sauce. And it that doesn’t float your boat, their Oyster Po’ Boy is the culinary representation of the Entente Cordiale – fresh British oysters in buttery French brioche. Delicieux!

Spaghetti House is also taking inspiration from the oceans, with their sumptuous Spaghetti and Lobster being the perfect way to enjoy a crustacean coronation celebration, washed down with a complimentary glass of pink prosecco.


Ole & Queen - Ole & Steen

While the official “Platinum Pudding” has been named, there are no shortage of alternate sweet treats available.

From one nation with a long-reigning monarch (though Queen Margrethe II has only been on the throne for 50 years) to another, Ole & Steen’s Ole & Queen is a delightful combination of white chocolate and lemon sponge topped with fresh berries and a Meringue Girls meringue kiss.

Soho Coffee has put a spin on the royal dessert – Victoria Sponge - with their Eliza-berry Cream Muffin: a vanilla cake, topped with Cotswold summer berry jam, cream and a fresh berry crown.

Not quite a dessert - but certainly a sweet treat – the Eton Mess shake from Byron captures the spirit of the iconic dessert with none of the mess – so to speak. A fruity combination of vanilla ice cream and strawberry coulis awaits if you can break through the crispy meringue shell.


Elizabeefan Burger - Byron

 Though it sounds like it’s been ripped from a documentary about Shakespeare narrated by Danny Dyer, the Elizabeefan Burger, from Byron, is a right royal feast. Put your taste buds in a tizzy with an Aberdeen Angus patty topped with roast beef brisket, Red Leicester, watercress, pickled onions, and finished with a horseradish mayo. It’s as British as David Attenborough singing Jerusalem wearing Geri Halliwell’s dress.
