Eat and Drink in East London

London is a city of contrasts. It’s a place where bright red buses roll past against matte grey skies, monolithic concrete council estates loom over creamy Georgian townhouses, and busy roads run straight through serene Royal Parks. This dynamic also extends to the dining scene—it’s not uncommon to find a greasy spoon café perching quietly beside a Michelin-starred restaurant, or a chic, light-filled brasserie housed in the depths of a grim industrial building.

East London is a vibrant, bustling area, full of local people buying and selling, working near the dockside and enjoying traditional East-End foods. But, more than just the home of the cockney, East London has much to offer the discerning traveller.

Also, be sure to check out Jamie Oliver's Fifteen on Westland Place. Fifteen is one of a series of the celebrity chef's restaurants, which give disadvantaged young people the chance to shine in a culinary career. It really is a food lover’s paradise and has an excellent selection of food and drink to choose from.

When it comes to food, there’s nowhere better to sample London’s unique brand of high-low culture than in the historic streets of East London. Traditionally an enclave for immigrant communities, East London has long been a destination for those craving authentic chicken Karahi or steaming bowls of pho. But now, thanks to the steady hipsterfication of Shoreditch, Dalston, and Bethnal Green, old-school stalwarts sit alongside innovative new dining destinations.
