London Food Tour With Eating Europe


In December of last year, I got the opportunity to take an East End London food tour with Eating Europe.  Food tours are always my absolute favourite thing to do when visiting a city, as you can really find out a lot about a place through food.

East London is my favourite part of the city.  Its so culturally diverse which means you get an abundance of different food, style and people.  It didn’t always be the trendiest part of London though.  East London was considered the worst and roughest part.  It wasn’t even featured on the map of London at one point in history!  Nowadays though you will find the most unique and trendiest markets here along with an abundance of diverse and delicious food!

My London food tour of in the east of the capital started by meeting in the Old Spitalfields Market where I met my guide for the day.  Here are all the delicious food we tasted along the way on this amazing London food tour!

  1. A bacon sandwich at St John Bread and Wine

After our introductions, we started the tour in full force by trying an English favourite – The bacon sarnie.  What I loved about this restaurant is every part of the sandwich is made by them (except the bacon).  They bake their own bread and even make their own tomato sauce that goes in the sandwich!  Absolutely delicious.

  1. Bread and butter pudding at the English Restaurant

Next was something sweet and another English classic, bread and butter pudding. The perfect way to start the day in my eyes!  This classic English pub was built in the 17th century so this place was a great introduction to the character that goes into a pub.

  1. English cheese at The House of Androuet

What many people don’t realise is that England has some amazing cheeses.  We tried the classic Cheddar and my personal favourite, Blue Stilton.  This busy little establishment sells the very best cheeses.

  1. Fish and chips (+mushy peas!) at Poppies

Poppies is a famous restaurant in East London which sells THE very best fish and chips.  This great restaurant have won multiple awards for the English classic.  They even wrap their fish and chips in newspaper, but not to worry – Poppies created their own newspaper that uses edible ink, so you don’t have to worry about ink poisoning.  The restaurant recreates a classic seaside fish and chip shop with its décor, decoration and even work uniforms!

  1. Beer and cider at Pride of Spitalfields

Next was a quick stop at the Pride of Spitalfields for a refreshment.  We tried a classic English ale and an English cider soon after.  This pub is no thrills and another great insight into a classic English pub.  You will find yourself drinking with the locals at this place!

  1. Curry at Aladin

Brick Lane is famous for its curry houses, the streets are lined with them!  In the late 20th century Bangladeshis moved into East London and made Brick lane what its famous for today, its abundance of good curry’s!  We tried 3 different curries at Aladin’s, they were all very delicious and the service was great.  Aladin has even been praised by Prince Charles!

  1. Salt beef bagel at Beigel Bake

This was my personal favourite, salted beef bagel with English mustard and a gherkin!   This Jewish Bakery even runs 24/7, which is quite impressive as it’s ALWAYS busy!  The beef just melts in your mouth and with the fresh bagel, it’s a match made in heaven.


  1. Salted caramel tart at Pizza East

We finished the tour at Pizza East where we had a salted caramel tart.  This was a fantastic way to end the tour. The tart just melted in my mouth, it’s the perfect option for someone with a sweet tooth.  I have to say the tart was probably my second favourite food of the tour.

Learning the history along the way

What I really loved about this tour was not only the food of course, but how the guide also told us about the history of the place.  We stopped along the way to some historic parts of East London, so it was like a historic tour and a food tour all wrapped into one.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time on the tour and was happy that I got to check out some places I had never even heard of before, yet they are so famous in the local area!

    I love food and what caught my attention was the bread and butter pudding being my favourite! I love fish and chips, I have to admit I haven’t seen many fish and chip places in London, to me it feels more fitting having fish and chips at the seaside. What did you think of eating mushy peas with your fish and chips? I was first introduced to mushy peas from my Nan when I was younger, she would eat it with her fish and chips, I personally don’t like it, it tastes different and the texture is strange. However mushy peas is commonly found up north which is where my Nan was born, yet I am a southerner and I suppose I am just not use to it.

    I am yet to take a food tour which is a pity because I am such a foodie! That bread and butter pudding looks amazing by the way. Also like the idea of learning about the history while on the tour.

    I love food tours! They’re great to get to know the place you’re visiting and at the same time get the feeling about the food and local history and customs.
    The places you visited look really nice and that bread and butter pudding… wow!

    I love such food tours combining history too. Helps us get more knowledgeable about the place.
    Fish and chips sounded so perfect to me. Being an Asian Curry at Aladin too would suit me fine.

    ah my mouth is watering looking at all you photos in this post! East London is indeed foodie heaven, but I sadly have not enjoyed the curries like you recommended (I know, blasphemy!). it gives me a great reason to go back and eat them all up though… great post on where to eat!

    Oh my gosh, my stomach just growled in a major way! I’m spending three weeks in London this spring and I’m now dying to take this tour! I just pinned it for my trip. I want that bread and butter pudding and that bagel in my belly right now. Thanks for sharing!

    What a nice food tour. I am hungry again!. It is nice to see some of the restaurant owners going out of the way to preserve the tradition at the same making it safe for the consumers. Yes, I am talking about using edible ink for newspaper to wrap the food. Salted caramel tart sounds gret too.

    I’ll take a Blue Stilton any day! I love the sound of all of these places. I’d never heard of edible ink but now it’s the only way I want to eat my fish and chips. What a fun tour.

    Food tours are my favorite way to tour a city. I’ve actually done this Eating London tour and agree it’s great. The history of the area with Jack the Ripper is really interesting. My favorite was also the salt beef bagel sandwich. So yummy!
