London

East end eats in London. Cockney tucker and high class grub.

East End eats

Brittany of The Sweet Wanderlust got my attention when she began talking about a food tour. Then again, she always gets my attention; her whole delicious blog is about food and travel!

She describes a food tour of London’s East End, and I have some experience there. I once had dinner with BookCrossing friends at St Johns “Nose to Tail” restaurant. It was a fun night, with some very interesting food. “You want to live to a ripe old age,” my doctor wife advised, “don’t try that dish.”

In 2005, during my Monopoly tour of London, I used Tim Moore’s “Do Not Pass Go” as my guide, and after reading his hilarious encounter with Tubby Isaacs and jellied eels, I sought out the food van and ordered some for myself. Let it be known that in the thirteen years since that moment, I have never felt the urge to eat that particular delicacy again.
