Canalside at Here East
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This buzzing area at Stratford's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is home to all manner of companies and institutions (think BT Sport, UCL and Big Data tech firms) but it's becoming best known for its food and drink output thanks to a very decent bunch of restaurants and street food spots.
Hungry Here East visitors can get stuck into wings, chicken burgers and sides at Randy's Wing Bar, rustic Italian trattoria fare at Gotto, from the same people behind Mele e Pere, a British menu with plenty of foraged bits and bobs at Shanes on Canalside and breakfasts from a Canalside outpost from reliable chain The Breakfast Club.
And to drink? Cocktails and retro arcade games from Four Quarter East and cold-pressed juices from Mother.
