Considering that a good 60 percent of my readers are from the USA and around the world so I am always glad to share more about London’s hidden gems. Also for those from the UK visiting London. When I travel, as much as I want to see all the popular tourist places, I want to see where the locals hang out, where they eat and where they just chill out. So for this post forget about the London Eye, forget the Shard, Tower Bridge or St Pauls as it’s all about London Food Tours.
I am taking you on a tour of East London. Some time ago I shared with you a post about East London’s Street Art Tour. East London boasts the largest number of artists and art organisation living and working in any capital city in the world. So we are checking out where all the cool kids hang out. Did I also mention there is going to be food?

The tour also stopped at the UK’s number one fish and chip shop; Poppies. You have to visit this place to understand why they are number one. Then making our way to the pub for some real ale and cider after stopping by Benjamin Truman’s historical home.
Then stopping by for a tasting of London’s best curry house; Aladin and cheese shop that has me thinking twice about buying rubbery cheese from the supermarket and instead going for specialist in good quality cheese. Moving on to Pizza East on Bethnal Green Road for desert and tea, a wholesomely loft-conversion style decor that served up a tasty salted caramel tart with ice cream.
