The Famous Brick Lane!
After my refreshing bubble drink, we continued making our way to the famous ‘Brick Lane’!!! It was not how I expected as I have heard that this road is famous for its ‘Curry Houses’!! We only saw a few Indian restaurants on the main road but I think there are mainly located on the side roads which we didn’t venture to. There were lots of pubs, shops and of course street food stalls!!! 🙂
As we were walking along the main road, we stumbled across a place like a Hawker Centre in Singapore where there are lots of food stalls of different cuisines, all at a cheap price!!! Unfortunately, I can’t tell you exactly where it is because I don’t remember seeing a sign outside for it!!! We decided to find our lunch at this venue, the place was buzzing with people and they had an outdoor area where you can eat and enjoy a beer! 🙂
Dan and Heath tried the Venezuelien cuisine and their meal cost £6 each, a bargain as their plates were huge!!! I had a Thai chicken curry with rice (£4) and I also brought some dumplings to share. The food was delicious! 🙂
Yummy Lunch!!! 🙂
Lovely cakes and desserts!
We were stuffed but I couldn’t resist buying a summer fruit tart from this lovely cute stall – Morena decorated with lots of sweet cakes and desserts!! 🙂
After our lunch, we continued walking and came across a little market place, it really reminds me of the Camden markets. I ended up buying a 3 x tops and Dan kindly brought me a lovely bag!!! 🙂 Before leaving Brick Lane, we went into Monty’s Bar for a quick drink and to catch up on our day so far. I will be visiting Brick Lane again as there is so much to see and do!!! 🙂
We walked back towards Hoxton Square to find a place for another drink but it was very busy. Then, Heath recommend we go to The Red Lion Pub which is just off the square, inside it was decorated with old fashion arm chairs & wooden benches. They also have a roof garden which is nice to sit on a sunny day!!! 🙂
Summer Rolls with prawns and veg!
It was approaching evening time now, so we decided we might as well grab dinner on Kingsland Road where it is famous for its Vietnamese restaurants. As you walk along the road, you can see that all the restaurants were packed with people, we finally found our place for dinner in at the Cu Tu restaurant. The place was buzzing with friends catching up and it had a great atmosphere!!! I find that Vietnamese food are always very fresh and they like to have different textures to their dishes and serving with fresh herbs. The food was very yummy, I really enjoyed our dinner, the noodles were so silky and tasty!!! 🙂
Our lovely yummy dinner!!! 🙂
I had such a wonderful day in Hackney with all the food experiences, markets and shopping!!! I just wanted to say thanks to Heath for being such a great tour guide for showing us around!!! 🙂 I will definitely be visiting again! 🙂
