Bite Brick Lane


There is culinarily more to Brick Lane than south-east Asian grub. I enjoy treating my tummy to some adventures from the various market stalls in and around the Sunday UpMarket and though I don't often get to do this these days, here are some of my favourite recent bites:


Jamaican salt fish fritters. 



I am mad about these spicy savouries. These were jazzed up a bit with sweetcorn but I still enjoyed them.

Venezuelan Arepas:




Arepas are cornflour savoury cakes that a usually stuffed with a variety of seriously yum fillings. We opted for some slow-cooked pulled pork. Amazingly yum street food! 

Trying new food from different cultures is a hobby of ours and the various food markets in London have great selections for tummy adventures.
