138 Brick Lane, London E1 6RU
In Brick Lane, this is for me one of the best Indian restaurants.
It’s not expensive at all, you can go with a lot of friends celebrating a birthday as they’ll prepare big tables downstairs.
The staff is really really nice and they will replace your food without problem if it doesn’t look like you thought.
With the note, they always give you chocolate with an orange flavour but very light that it’s just delicious and it’s like a dessert after the spicy meal.
I really like sag paneer because it’s not spicy like the rest and also they’ve got peshwary nans which are fantastic thanks to the mix of almond and coconut.
155 Brick Lane, Shoreditch, London E1 6SB
There are two Beigel shop in the same street and really closed of each other but I prefer this one.
They’ve got a lot of different food to put in their beigels.
If your combination sounds strange like prawns and cheese they will make it. (this doesn’t mean that I chose this one)
Tuna is a must but for me the simply cheese and if you are lucky with a hot beigel… Yummy! Nothing can be compared to it.
If you don’t want beigels, no worries there are also croissants, soups, cakes and some other pastries.
If you are having fun in Brick Lane area and the party seems to finish late, you can have beigels for breakfast or dinner as it opens till late.
1 Marshall Street, London W1F 9BA
Near Carnaby Street, this is the perfect place if you appreciate to use your hands. You can make your own jewelleries.
There are everything that you need : colours, sizes, prices and of course tools for those who want to start a business or simply to create your own necklaces, rings, earrings…
From findings, sequins to beads and stones you’ve got all the components for a unique piece of art.
It’s really cheap and could be cheaper when you buy more than one as it’s a wholesale but don’t worry because people like you and me are also welcomed.
It’s cheap but don’t forget that the VAT is added at the till it’s about 17% (I promess you don’t even notice it).
There are always people trying to find someone to order so be prepared to wait a little bit by looking to all their stuff.
London N16 7LR
If you are going to Dalston market, you will find fruits and vegetables but if you continue into the street, you’ll find on the left a shop named Dalston Mil Fabrics.
There you can find more than mil (thousand) fabrics, colors, printed fabrics , textiles even the fabric that you only dream of is there.
Prices are cheap and there are also a lot of buttons and zips as well as pens for drawing on clothes and also colors if you are fed up of your small pink dress turn it into black by dying it.
You can also talk with the staff if you are not sure about your choice.
It’s a shop where a lot of fashion students go.
29-53 Chatham Place, Hackney, London E9 6LP
In Hackney centre, near Mare Street and not far from the huge Tesco, there is Burberry’s stock.
Open every day, You need to leave your affaires personnelles and only keep your coat and your wallet.
Then the shopping can begin. There are a reduction about 20% to 70% sometimes.
There are 4 sections, one for women, one for men, one for babies and you’ll find one more for accessories, shoes, bags, umbrellas, and in the middle of this area there is a counter for glasses, small gifts signed Burberry.
The staff is not trying at all to make you buy so you really feel free to have a look and go.
Prices are expensive for the area but for Burberry’s addicts this is an amazing opportunity.
Good tip is to go during sales.
188 stoke newington high street, London N16 7JD
New opening on Stoke Newington High Street. If you want to share a big table with different people who can eat their breakfast or their salads or simply have a coffee, you’ll be gladly surprised.
Find delicious marmelade, bread better than the french baguette.
For those who knows the « Pain quotidien » there the same ambiance, very simple but perfect anytime of the week end.
The staff is very friendly as they really want to make you feel comfortable and be sure that you enjoyed your meal or snack.
Prices are on an average basis for the area with the pain au chocolat at £1,30 and salads at £4 /5.
39a Hoxton Square, Hoxton, London N1 6NN
Near Hoxton Square, meet there all your pals, have drinks and then go for dancing downstairs.
The ground flour is huge and there are a lot of different seats reparted all over the place.
The basement is a bit small as there is a bar also and the roof is not high but It didn’t stop me to have fun as the dancefloor is amazing with a lot of colours like a ‘Pulp’ video.
The sound is not the same between the two floors which means that you can’t resist to the music if you go downstairs for sure !
Good surprise for those like me who were scared to not breathe, I always felt air condition wherever I was on the dancefloor.
227 Old Street, London EC1V 9HE
Sameer is a wholesale of fashion jewellery. You will find jewelleries from the 50’s to the 90’s.
If you are polite, ring the doorbell and someone will open you the doors of heaven.
It’s not exaggerated, necklaces, earrings, bangles, broches made of silver, gold or simply plastic.
You can’t leave this place without purchasing a little something.
At least, you’ll meet Sheila who is really talkative and so nice giving you advices on anything not only jewellery. At the end you want to stay there and have a cup of tea.
Not expensive at all, always a good idea when you need a gift and you don’t want to buy something that everyone can have.
107 Redchurch Street, London E2 7DL
Every time I'm going there it's at the end of the night as it closes later than other bars in the area.
It's a tiny place but there's an atmopshere, something that make you feel privileged to be in this small room trying to be a social person.
Personnally, I always went on Fridays and on Saturdays and the size of the bar didn't stop people dancing at least to wiggling.
Drinks are expensive but this doesn't stop the champagne. The staff is very nice and if you're hungry ask for the menu, not a lot of choices but the food is yummy.
36 New Oxford Street, London WC1A 1EP
It is based in the centre of London so really easy to go there and it's a nice meeting point as there is a bus stop in front of the bar.
Perfect if you want a drink or/and meet new people as the bar becomes full rapidly.It is not the kind of place where you can seat and simply enjoy the moment because there are only 2 sofas for the ground floor and chairs are uncomfortable.
Personnally, I don't like the basement as it is too small to contain a band, people, DJ, bench seats and tables in the same area but again, if you want to meet cool new people even if you just want to take a look, you'll be glad because even if it's bad to judge a book by its cover, The Fly is all about fashion.
