The original East End tour, we've been running this one since 2013. As the area has changed, we've changed too, so that we can bring you the newest, tastiest food. Plus we share a few firm favourites that we've been eating at, since the very beginning.
The idea is to give you a flavour of the street food scene, traditional British food, the old Jewish East End, Banglatown, local beer and the newest openings.
And as with all our tours, we share loads of stories about the history of the area.
£59pp (includes all the food and drink).
We keep these tour groups small so we can give you lots of love and attention (and food). We cap the groups at 5 people.
We offer these as private tours too. Just get in touch for a quote.
A taste of the tour
We change the tours pretty regularly (when we find something new/exciting/tasty), but here's what we've been doing recently.
Visit an impressive restaurant to sit under a massive Damien Hirst installation and tear and share a mega Yorkshire pudding. A staple of the great British Sunday roast, but done with a twist.
Sit down to some incredible Basque cuisine at Sagardi. Depending on the size of the group we will either try some of their delicious pintxos,blood sausage or Txuletón steak. Their restaurant also looks incredible and has a very unique installation that I hope you can spot.
Swing by the area that was London's worst slum (it's nice now) to hear how the area's changed. Here we will have a little surprise that I picked up earlier on from a special little place called Cross....
It's practically the law that you MUST visit Brick Lane's bagel shop if you're in the area. So we do. You'll try their signature salt beef bagel and try not to get up to your elbows in English mustard.
Since the 1970s the bottom of Brick Lane has been known as Banglatown, so to give you a taste of the area, we'll pop into a little deli to pick up some spinach pakora. If your sweet teeth outweigh the savory ones then we will enter into 'Dark Sugars instead. How do chocolate truffles sound ?
Finish off with a real ale, glass of wine or a local craft beer at the Grocer which is in the historic surroundings of Spitalfields Market. (It's a great spot to explore after the tour.)
