little bread, lots of meat Jun 22, 2011
If you are visiting east London and if you like to try something different, you might have a quick lunch/dinner at Brick lane Beigel Bakery. It's located on the end of the brick lane which is close to Bethnal Green road. There are two of them very close to each other but you will easily be able to recognise the good one just looking at the number of people inside :)

Owight geezers!

You can't be in East London without going for a bagel. The best place is on Brick Lane. There are two right next to each other. I'm not sure of the name of either one but the bad one looks like the back of a bakery industrial and the other is warmer with wooden shelves where you can eat and is altogether more colourful, this is the goody.

The bad one is the more famous one and so gets too many people;theyare too light with their fillings, more expensive, rude serviceandall their bagels are pre packaged unless you order some weird combination like tuna and... vegemite. Personally, I would rather lick an electric fence that eat a bagel here.

So make sure you go next door to the good colourful one. The people are lovely and make each bagel fresh as you order it. They have some tasty looking deserts in the cabinets but I've never tried them. Ooh you must try the pasties! They are fantastic.

The whole of this Brick Lane area is now very much Asian with every second shop being an Indian or Bangladeshi restaurant but it used to be a very Jewish area which is how the bagel stores popped up and its great to see them still so successful (yes even the bad one).

If you wander around the area you can still see occassional hallmarks from the Jewish days with signs carved into old buildings (now occupied by other trades) advertising what the shop was once... One building I love to look at is the old Jewish Soup Kitchen. If you squint your eyes to make them blurry you can imagine that its still a soup kitchen.

For the perfect Saturday, wander through Spitalfields market with a bagel in your hand and one in your handbag for later. ;)
