Top 10 food and drink trends for 2018

Pasta

London’s love affair with Italy is showing no sign of simmering down, with queues still a regular fixture at pasta palace Padella next to Borough Market as foodies patiently await steaming plates of decadent Dexter beef shin ragu pappardelle and silky mounds of pici cacio e pepe.

Keeping its prices deliberately low proved a winning formula for Padella, which has turned the capital into a city of fresh pasta obsessives. We predict London’s newfound love of carbs will grow this year, as restaurateurs open pasta bars with reckless abandon in the hope of emulating the success of Padella, Pastaio in Soho, and Palatino in Clerkenwell.

While choosing a name beginning with ‘P’ may be wise, the likes of Luca in Clerkenwell from the boys behind The Clove Club, Trullo in Highbury and Bermondsey newbie Flour & Grape are also leading the pasta charge.
