London World food tour

Once the brunt of many a culinary joke, London has transformed into a global dining destination. The sheer diversity is head-spinning: from Afghan to Zambian. Work it all off with our mapped- out walk.

X EUROPE Baltic EASTERNEUROPEAN £ £ (balticrestaurant.co.uk; 74 Blackfriars Rd)

In a bright and airy high-ceilinged dining room with a glass roof and wooden beams, Baltic is travel on a plate: dill and beetroot, dumplings and blini, pickle and smoke, rich stews and braised meat. From Polish to Georgian, the flavours are authentic and the dishes beautifully presented. The wine and vodka lists are equally diverse.

Canela PORUGUESE £ £ (canelacafe.com; 33 Earlham St)

This expanded cafe in the heart of Covent Garden serves tasty Portuguese dishes, such as feijoada (a bean stew with smoked meat) and bacalhau a bras (shredded salted cod, onions, thinly chopped fried potatoes and egg). There's a good selection of vegetarian dishes, as well as a strong Portuguese wine list.

Jose SPANSH £ £ (josepizarro.com; 104 Bermondsey St)

From the tiled bar to the barrel table, the leg of ham on its stand and the espresso machine behind the bar, Jose looks like it's straight out of Madrid or Valencia. The food, too, is authentic: exquisitely tender pluma iberica (grilled pork), garlic-rubbed pan con tomate (toasted bread with pureed tomatoes) and, of course, jamon (ham) and chorizo.
