Dalston may have a reputation for amazing Turkish food (which places like 19 Numara Bos Cirrik I uphold), but there's actually a huge range of outstanding restaurants in the area now. Shanghai Dalston brings Shanghai's regional dishes to east London, whilst British food is provided by A Little of What You Fancy. And for simple, seasonal fare alongside Regent's Canal, you must go down to Towpath.

The Sloane Bros Frozen Yoghurt Co
Sloane Bros' colourful frozen yoghurt joint shines brightly amongst Brick Lane's well weathered beigel bakeries and coffee shops. In the modest space you can pull up a stool to one of the bars that skirt the room to enjoy the chilly treat with traditional British and fresh fruits toppings. Fro-yo lovers can choose from one of four flavours (natural, chocolate hazelnut, dulce de leche and a changing monthly flavour) and top it off with a selection of nuts, fresh fruits and a range of confectionery that includes bourbon biscuits, Party Rings, Jammy Dodgers and more local treats. They also have a dairy-free fro-yo option made with coconut cream. Wash it down with a smoothie, or bulk it up with a hot crepe.
