Have you been to Brick Lane? Why haven't you been to Brick Lane?!!!! By day or by night,this is a place to go and have some fun! A beacon of the modern hipster culture,the streets are a wash with brilliant graffiti art,colouring the streets in the most vibrant way. By day,cafe's,restaurants,market stalls,shops (especially vintage),art galleries. Loads! By night it's a place to go and have a night out,put your glad rags on and have a boogie. Also there are loads of indian restaurants that are open all night,be it that you want a pre-evening meal to line your stomach or to soak up all the damage come silly o'clock in the morning! Another trait of Brick Lane is the Bagel Bakery at the bottom of the road. Open all day and all night,you can get the best bagels in London either to take home for the next day or jammed full of salt beef,smoked salmon,cream cheese and other classic fillings. This is a 24hr street,go give it a couple of yours and see what you get up to : )


I'm not gonna lie, I only came here to tell you people to get out to Brick Lane on a Sunday and get your ass to the Poutinerie stall near the bridge arches. It's a bit of home for me, being Canadian, but seriously. British people, listen up: cheese and chips is NOTHING compared to this. Cheese CURDS. Actual squeaky, melty, cheesy goodness. FRIES. GRAVY. And if you're feeling saucy, get the one with the ribs in it. Incredible.

I mean, yeah, Brick Lane shopping is great too. But get the poutine first, then wander about. A lovely way to spend  a Sunday, if you ask me!
