Whether you live in the area, or you fancy a trip down the District Line, the dining out options in this pocket of East London are mouth-watering, to say the least. And they're cosmopolitan, too, with great eateries from Turkey, Italy, India, Spain and the Caribbean all vying for your attention. So forget about working all day over a hot stove, and reserve a table at a local gourmet eatery.
Italian cuisine is definitely one of the highlights of the Hornchurch restaurants scene. For starters, there are a couple of dazzling places to try on Station Road, near the heart of town. There are family-run osteria-style places, which will transport you to the Amalfi Coast with their stone-baked calzones, and warm you up with a hearty Bolognese sauce. And there are up-market ristorantes like Rienna's in the area, too, where plush decor is complemented by exquisite seafood dishes like red snapper served in a white wine and cherry sauce. If you want a new take on fish, there's no better place to go.
This part of London is also well-known as a Turkish dining nexus. In Hornchurch, restaurants serve up classic mangal-style barbecue meals, updating age-old Ottoman techniques and offering one of the biggest selections of meat dishes around. The lambs liver kebabs are something that even hardened kebab fans probably won't have tried, while the veggie moussaka mixes aubergine and cheese in a gorgeous concoction, too. Add in crumbly, honey-coated baklava cakes for dessert and a couple of Efes beers, and the Turkish restaurants in Hornchurch offer a great, relaxed dining experience.
If Turkish kebabs or sophisticated Italian gastronomy aren't exciting your imagination, Hornchurch has Indian restaurants that almost certainly will. If you feel the need for some spice in your life, places like Noor on Station Lane are just what is required. These Indian banqueting specialists know how to lay on sumptuous feasts, but they can focus their talents on meals for two as well. With specialities like ayre masala (a Bengali herb and fish dish) alongside classic jalfrezis and biryanis, these Hornchurch restaurants cater for experienced curry fans and novices alike, and they're always a great place to be.
