Eating Our Way Through London

I'm slowly getting through my holiday posts .. bare with me ... 

The only Saturday we had in London we headed over to Spitalfields Markets. For lunch we met up with another of my former colleague from CFS M and her husband D. They suggested meeting at a restaurant called Pizza East.

This place has a lively ambiance and could probably seat about 150 people, it was a vary big restaurant. Apparently this place also gets very busy and bookings are recommended to avoid disappointment.

Obviously the menu predominately had pizzas however they did have other options for those who want something else. Actually our friends didn’t order any pizza opting for a few sides instead. We had the pepperoni, mozzarella and chilli. It was wood fire baked so the dough was light none of that Pizza Hut crusts. The servings are generous definitely could share one pizza between two.

They also had a large selection of wines. M choose a bottle of red for us to share and it was so nice to drink that we had finished the bottle (and quite tipsy) before we knew it.

For dessert the waiter suggested we try their salted caramel tart. The restaurant has been recently reviewed positively for their tart on Timeout London so of course we had to try it and it did not disappoint.

After lunch Ian and I walked around the area some more. Unfortunately half the market was closed already or maybe wasn’t opened that day? Only a section seemed to be trading by the time we got there.

That evening we met up with E & S for dinner at Dishoom. This indian eatery also very popular with the locals and international guests, doesn’t take bookings so expect to wait in a queue if you get arrive during peak periods and surprisingly it is s a vegetarian restaurant. 

The restaurant served famous local Bombay indian street food so it was like a tapas style concept where you ordered several plates to share. I strongly recommend the fried okra … I love okra so having it an a form different to what I’m use to …. amazing!!

After dinner we headed over to a local pub for a few more beverages. I got to taste strawberry flavoured cider. Very sweet and refreshing perfect for a hot summer’s day. They really need to bring all the various cider flavours in Australia cause we have the weather and appetite for these kinds of beverages.

Where's your favourite place to eat in London?
