The theme of this tour in Soho is “international foods”, because Soho is considered one of London’s oldest multicultural areas. 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, to find 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.
The generic British word for dessert is "pudding."
In the 19th century, the "g" was sometimes pronounced as a harder "k." Sometimes, the "n" got dropped. Sometimes that was shortened by slicing off the "pud."
In other words, small, incremental changes resulted in pudding->puddink->puddik->dick.
It's not meant to be dirty; it's just a Victorian synonym for "dessert."
Pepper a cake with currants or raisins, and you get "spots" in your pudding, hence: spotted dick.
