Andrew Phillips

Where do Hackney and surrounding areas locals go?

BIRD

The only place in London to do a bacon doughnut... They also have amazing chicken and lunchtime deals in the week!

Broadway Market

Broadway Market is the exact place to go to experience the best of what east London has to offer, with its fantastic range of food stalls, restaurants, shops and pubs! If you go in the summer, be sure to grab a beer and head over to London Fields, where the standard BBQ doesn't exist.

Tramshed

A Mark Hix restaurant with a huge Damien Hurst cow and chicken on display, created specifically for Tramshed! The menu is simple but very tasty!

E. Pellicci

A local family run institution where you always feel welcome! This greasy spoon café is a proper traditional place with a buzzing atmosphere.

Cereal Killer Café

Much talked about, this place epitomises all that is trendy in the Shoreditch area!

Bread and Butter

Serving the best breakfasts in Dalston, lovely fresh organic food, amazing juice and great coffee. The tortilla with loads of cheese is a great hangover cure!

Trapeze

Quirky interiors and crazy cocktails, this restaurant-cum-club is great for a number of different occasions.

Urban Food Fest

This food festival off Shoreditch High Street is there every Saturday throughout the day and late into the night. There's loads of delicious food stalls with cuisines from all over the world and bars serving tasty cocktails.

Bishopsgate Kitchen

Great food in a glass-walled Benugo restaurant that has a varied menu made using local produce. It is just a short walk from London Liverpool Street and Spitalfields Market.

69 Colebrooke Row

One of London's best kept secrets. The size of a small living room, but serving the best experimental cocktails around. The bar uses spirits and drinks that it infuses itself in a drinks laboratory and the staff wear lab coats.

The Canonbury Tavern

A public house since the early 1700's, The Canonbury Tavern was refurbished in 2009 giving the residents of Islington one of the best pub gardens in the city and a superb roast lunch on a Sunday. Moreover, the beautiful garden offers an escape from chaotic city life.

Clutch

An incredible restaurant in east London. Bright yellow and tiny in size, it serves the best fried chicken with American-style sides, including the dill and pomegranate slaw, which is unreal! Booking is recommended...

Pho House

After trying nearly all of the Vietnamese restaurants on Kingsland Road, this is by far the best. The setting is cool with graffiti style art on the walls and the service is excellent compared to other places on the same road. Complimentary tea and watermelon at the end is exactly what is needed after trying the extensive menu of pho, noodles, summer rolls and fresh fish.

Salvation in Noodles

Super tasty Vietnamese noodle salads and pho on the borders of Dalston.

York Hall Leisure Centre

Famous gym, spa and boxing venue!
