Restaurants in Spitalfields – Famous Brick Lane
Arguably some of the best restaurants in Spitalfields lie along Brick Lane, which runs from Bethnal Green to Whitechapel, and is a world famous enclave of Anglo-Indian cooking. Thanks to the immigration of South Asians to the area, curry houses, many of them award-winning or at least wildly popular, have been cropping up there for decades and draw multitudes of visitors each year to sample the legendary classic dishes of these Spitalfields restaurants. Regular menu items might include lamb jeera, chicken tikka, tandoori king prawns and of course tantalizing arrays of mouth-watering curries with cool dips, smoky pickled vegetables and naan bread. These Spitalfields restaurants are not for the light-eater; always come hungry and be ready for a real feast. Teeming with industry and the daily grind of one of the world’s busiest cities, Commercial Street is an onslaught for the senses. Running parallel to Brick Lane and also containing many, many south Asian restaurants, Lebanese kebab houses and Turkish grills, Commercial Street is rife with eclectic Spitalfields restaurants that are more varied than on Brick Lane. Sprinkled among the spice and heat of the curry houses, there are more traditionally English Spitalfields restaurants and cafes for the less adventurous diner, and English pubs and bars to boot. The best restaurants in Spitalfields aren’t difficult to find with so many fantastic options!
