I started to list cocktail spots, but actually this is not a badly put together list!

This is why..and lots of other blogs of course. I don't have photos.

There are places in London I like far better of course, but fair is fair.

I've never seen a Chorley cake down South, so not much opportunity for it to become popular! I actually prefer shortcrust to puff ;)

St john should remain if only for the doughnuts and Eccles cakes.
I think you are referring to New World in Chinatown:

I've had good fish and chips there also. So many places to buy them it is hardly surprising. The one I linked seems to get very good reviews for the most part.
The best fish and chips I have ever eaten were in Poole, where every second shop seems to have won an award or other, but that is a bit further from London.

You could always take a day trip to Brighton and eat Fish and chips on the beach from somewhere like this:

Looking for moderate priced dinner/lunch near V&A Museum (London) for solo diner

South Kensington is very good for travel to other parts of London via the Piccadilly
line, so she has a lot to choose from, but those are nearby.

Easy, healthy eating for lunch: http://www.tombodeliandcafe.com/about...

and I like this place for breakfast, brunch or lunch even though it is a chain: http://www.lepainquotidien.co.uk/stor...

Kimchi in London

If you drive, there is a massive Korean cash and carry type shop off the A3 in New Malden which will likely have everything you want and more.

Aberdeen, Inverness, Edinburgh- 1 dinner Each; Ethnic or Other

I have mentioned it a few times here, but http://dusit.co.uk/ in Edi which is Thai really does do it with lovely seafood - monkish, scallops, jumbo prawns and king scallops - and that isn't necessarily typical. So might be good if he fancies both seafood and "ethnic". Otherwise if he has a group and is bored of more Scottish type food, Yes sushi on Princes street does fun hotpots.

Carry out/Deli choices in London

Tesco doesn't call any of their shops "fresh and easy" in the UK. It was their US attempt before they sold them.
We have Tesco and Tesco Metro, their smaller city offerings. Some of these are now not bad at all, re-branded with a market type feel. On the whole though Marks and Spencer do far better prepared and takeaway food when on the move.
Good pizza in London includes Homeslice homeslicepizza.co.uk and pizzapilgrims.co.uk/ but in general the UK less refined choices would be Tandoori Chicken, kebab or Peking duck pizza!

Beijing dumplings in London?

http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaura... might meet the brief.
It was quick, inexpensive and authentic.

Why can't we eat rare chicken?

In the UK we have Lyons eggs who vaccinate their chickens against salmonella and so in theory are safer.

Kensington Olympia Recommendations

As PhilD said, I did mean ethical. Although you will also find food from all over the globe.

For lazy lunchtimes the food court at the top of Wholefoods on the Kensingston high street is good for trendy and ethical variety. Good shop too. Huge.

Nine Days in Glasgow

Sometimes I wish there was a "like" button. However in the evolving world of (scotch) eggs there are also these..
http://www.macsween.co.uk/recipes/hag... and i've seen places both sides of the borders serve them

Sunday Dinner rec., near Canary Wharf

How about Tom's Kitchen?
http://www.tomskitchen.co.uk/canary-w... or Boisdale if you like jazzy music http://www.boisdale.co.uk/

I always think Canary wharf is great for takeaway lunch and not so great for dinner.

Visiting London from NYC. Please help critique itinerary (researched)

I quite like the themed ones. A bit more fun. Like this for example: http://www.onealdwych.com/food-drink/...

But it really does depend what floats your digestive biscuit, so to speak.

Agreed. I'd go back if they changed it for sure.

Glad you enjoyed it. I think The Fat Duck remains my favourite ever restaurant and that is saying something. More than for just the food, It really is theatre.

What to send to a girl in UK

Boots (major UK high st chain chemist) sells the Disney Cars, Princess and Mickey+friends band-aids, so don't get those.
Reeces are increasingly easy to find - lots of places, including Tescos have them. Peanut M+Ms are harder so those might be good if she eats peanuts. There is also very little here available in "grape" flavour.
American cereal is very expensive here, so fun kids cereal might be good. When they released Fruit Loops here they had to change all the colourings for EU rules :D
