Multi-Cultural Influences = Amazing International Cuisine
The Theme of our London Food tour in Soho is “International Foods”, because Soho is considered one of London’s oldest multicultural areas. From the time of its development in the late 1600s, the rich never looked upon Soho as favourably as the other luxury boroughs. Immigrants moved in, and Soho initially became known as London’s “French Quarter”. Most foreigners that came to London, found cheap housing in Soho, and brought with them their incredible cuisines. Amidst the music halls, small theatres and brothels, these immigrants opened up cheap “eating-houses” all over the neighbourhood, making it the “in” place to eat for intellectuals, writers and artists, looking for delicious international cuisine.
Your exploration of Soho will bring to life layer upon layer of Soho’s rich history, and highlight the cultures that have created so many of London’s diverse foods – often Soho being the first place to find them.
