Taste your way around the world with a free tour of London's food scene
Come with us and venture into London’s trendy East End and learn about its history as you try some of the delicious food it has to offer, each bite representative of one of the communities that migrated to London and ended up living ‘beyond the wall’. Enjoy a food tour like no other, in which its up to you how much you eat and how much you spend. On our Free East End Food Tour you wont have to pay a very expensive ticket and be given food that you may not want, you decide according to your hunger and your budget!
Enjoy London’s favorite chips according to Time Out magazine as you hear the stories about the Irish who had to flee their country during the potato famine and who ended up in the East End building canals and railways. Try a delicious salted beef bagel and learn about the different arrivals of Jewish people who had to escape persecution from Eastern Europe throughout the 19th century.
Have a tasty samosa in a Bangladeshi restaurant and discover how their cuisine had such an impact in British culture that, even though they only arrive in the mid 20th Century, curry has now become a national British dish! Indulge in some devilishly good West African chocolate and finish the tour with a healthy fresh juice in a hidden hipster juice bar as you make up your mind over one of the most controversial topics in the East End: gentrification.
