Olimpiese standaard kos in Oos-Londen

Gaan binnekort na die kookkuns in die buurte en word oorweldig deur besoekers aan die Spele.

Vroeër was die East End van Londen nie bekend vir sy uitstekende kookkuns nie, wat spesialiseer in tipiese voedsel uit die werkersklas, soos jellied palings, kokkels en tert en puree. Vandag is hierdie gebied egter te midde van 'n voedselrevolusie, die tuiste van 'n paar van die mees innoverende en eerlikste lekkernye in die Britse hoofstad. Dit is goeie nuus vir besoekers aan die Olimpiese en Paralimpiese Spele, aangesien die hoofstadion naby geleë is, wat baie geleenthede bied om die beste moderne en tradisionele kos van Oos -Londen te proe.

Kafees rondom die Olimpiese terrein
'N Spiesgooi van die belangrikste Olimpiese stadion af is die Counter Café, 'n rustige koffiekamer en 'n restaurant in die Stour Space-gebou, wat ook 'n kontemporêre kunsgalery huisves. Die kafee het sagte leerbanke en groot vensters, waar u kan sit en kyk na die krommes van die buitenste muur van die Olimpiese Stadion. Die klem val op organiese produkte, of dit nou in 'n donsige roer gebring word as deel van die brunch die hele dag, of gebak word in 'n goue-gebakte tuisgemaakte tert met vulsels soos lam en eiervrug, of vark, appel en venkel. Tydens die Olimpiese en Paralimpiese Spele sal die Counter Café 'n baie gewilde opsie wees, dus besprekings vir ontbyt, middagete en aandete sal vroegtydig nodig wees.

Probeer die Hackney Pearl, 'n bekroonde restaurant en kroeg wat spesialiseer in moderne Britse geregte wat weekliks roteer, soos schol met wilde knoffelbotter en geroosterde Suffolk-lam, asook stomende koppies vir 'n goeie kafee-alternatief minder as 'n kilometer noord. van Square Mile -koffie, van die beste bone wat in Londen gebraai is.

Nie net nog 'n winkelsentrum nie
Die vooruitsig om in 'n groot winkelsentrum te eet, wek nie gereeld groot verwagtinge nie, maar Londen se tweede Westfield, wat onlangs minder as 'n kilometer van die Olimpiese stadion oopgemaak het, het een of twee verrassende uitsonderings. Die pizzarestaurant Franco Manca in die Brixton-woonbuurt is al dikwels 'die beste pizza in Londen' genoem, en die Westfield-tak sit die tradisie voort en produseer perfekte, bros-maar taai taai suurdeegpizzas. Bolaag is tradisioneel en plaaslik verkrygbaar waar moontlik - soos die romerige buffelmozzarella wat van 'n plaas in Somerset afgelewer word - en word die beste afgespoel met 'n glas organiese Ottavio Rube Italiaanse wyn.

Vars, vinnige Mexikaanse straatkos met uitsig op die Olimpiese stadion word by Westfield's Wahaca bedien, en hulle bedien ook heerlike tamarind margaritas. Vars, handgemaakte pasta kan by Pasta Remoli geniet word.

Lekker eet
Les Trois Garcons in Shoreditch is 'n entjie verder-'n taxi-rit van 15 minute-maar dit is die ekstra myl die moeite werd. Met swaaiende kristalstringe, opgestopte diere met tiara's (insluitend 'n kop van 'n kameelperd wat horisontaal uit 'n muur kom), ryk antiek in elke hoek en vintage handsakke wat aan die plafon hang, is hierdie omgeboude Victoriaanse kroeg net so opvallend vir sy weelderige dekor as vir sy kos. Die besonderse moderne Franse kombuis, insluitend geregte soos tee-gerookte salm met sesam en ingelegde venkel, gevolg deur hemelse sitroengraspannacotta met dragon-roomys, sorg vir 'n spesiale maaltyd weg van die Olimpiese skare.

Vir meer avontuurlustige moderne kombuis wat beïnvloed word deur 'n meester in molekulêre gastronomie, probeer Viajante, een van die mees eksperimentele restaurante in Londen - 'n kort metro -rit vanaf die naaste Olimpiese stadionstasie van Stratford na Bethnal Green - met ongewone kombinasies soos eendhart met appellintjies, varkstert met soet mieliebrood, en melksorbet met piekel en vars komkommer.

Tradisionele Oos -Londen -tarief
Minder as 'n kilometer wes van die Olimpiese stadion, is G Kelly's Noted Eel and Pie Shop 'n eenvoudige, slanke uitrusting met wit geteëlde mure en slim uniform personeel, waar tradisionele East End-geregte sedert 1939 bedien word. Daar kom vars gebakte gehakttertjies gesny met aartappelpuree, bedruip met 'n geheime pietersieliesous. Moedigerhartige siele kan die palings probeer, hetsy warm met mielie of koud bedien, in stukke helder aspic

jellie en geklee met asyn en peper. Sue Venning is die jongste in 'n lang gesinslyn wat die winkel bestuur het en is goed daaraan gewoond om die oningewydes te oortuig om 'n hap te proe. 'Ek vra hulle:' Eet jy sushi? '' Sê Sue met 'n helder lag. 'En as hulle erken dat hulle dit doen, sê ek:' Wel, dan kan u koue paling eet - wat is die verskil? '

Vir 'n ander Britse gunsteling, gaan na Poppies of Spitalfields, waar Pop self al meer as 50 jaar goue porsies fish and chips braai in sy ou restaurant in 'n diner-styl.

East End -kosreise
Om die verborge juwele in Oos -Londen te ontdek, is dit altyd die beste om 'n plaaslike inwoner te vra. Volgens Charli Matthews van kulinêre staptoere Walk Eat Talk Eat, is die voedseltoneel in Oos -Londen dinamies en verander dit altyd. 'Daar is nêrens anders soos dit nie,' het sy gesê. "Daar is soveel verskillende soorte kos, wat weerspieël al die verskillende immigrantegroepe wat deur die jare na die gebied gekom het, van die Hugenote en Nederlandse wewers tot die Joodse, Iere en Bangladesh." Vanuit die smeltkroes van Brick Lane in die binneste ooste-'n drie-stop-metro-rit of 'n taxirit van tien minute vanaf die Stratford-stasie vir die Olimpiese Spele-gaan die toere na minder bekende eetplekke soos Whitechapel, wat alles dek van Kashmiri-tee en Sweedse pasteie vir versengende warm Bangladesh -kerrie en die tradisionele Britse kos wat in hierdie deel van die stad gekoester word.

Vir meer avontuurlustige moderne kombuis wat beïnvloed word deur 'n meester in molekulêre gastronomie, probeer Viajante, een van die mees eksperimentele restaurante in Londen - 'n kort metro -rit vanaf die naaste Olimpiese stadionstasie van Stratford na Bethnal Green - met ongewone kombinasies soos eendhart met appellintjies, varkstert met soet mieliebrood, en melksorbet met piekel en vars komkommer.

Tradisionele Oos -Londen -tarief
Minder as 'n kilometer wes van die Olimpiese stadion, is G Kelly's Noted Eel and Pie Shop 'n eenvoudige, slanke uitrusting met wit geteëlde mure en slim uniform personeel, waar tradisionele East End-geregte sedert 1939 bedien word. Daar kom vars gebakte gehakttertjies gesny met aartappelpuree, bedruip met 'n geheime pietersieliesous. Moedigerhartige siele kan die palings probeer, hetsy warm met mielie of koud bedien, in stukke helder aspic

jellie en geklee met asyn en peper. Sue Venning is die jongste in 'n lang gesinslyn wat die winkel bestuur het en is goed daaraan gewoond om die oningewydes te oortuig om 'n hap te proe. 'Ek vra hulle:' Eet jy sushi? '' Sê Sue met 'n helder lag. 'En as hulle erken dat hulle dit doen, sê ek:' Wel, dan kan u koue paling eet - wat is die verskil? '

Vir 'n ander Britse gunsteling, gaan na Poppies of Spitalfields, waar Pop self al meer as 50 jaar goue porsies fish and chips braai in sy ou restaurant in 'n diner-styl.

East End kos toere
Om die verborge juwele in Oos -Londen te ontdek, is dit altyd die beste om 'n plaaslike inwoner te vra. Volgens Charli Matthews van kulinêre staptoere Walk Eat Talk Eat, is die voedseltoneel in Oos -Londen dinamies en verander dit altyd. 'Daar is nêrens anders soos dit nie,' het sy gesê. "Daar is soveel verskillende soorte kos, wat weerspieël al die verskillende immigrantegroepe wat deur die jare na die gebied gekom het, van die Hugenote en Nederlandse wewers tot die Joodse, Iere en Bangladesh." Van die smeltkroes van Brick Lane in die binneste ooste-'n drie-stop-metro-rit of 'n taxi-rit van 10 minute vanaf die Stratford-stasie vir die Olimpiese Spele-gaan die toere na minder bekende eetplekke soos Whitechapel, wat alles dek van Kashmiri-tee en Sweedse pasteie vir versengende warm Bangladesh -kerrie en die tradisionele Britse kos wat in hierdie deel van die stad gekoester word.


Olimpiese standaard kos in Oos-Londen

Gaan binnekort na die kookkuns in die buurte en word oorstroom deur besoekers aan die Spele.

Vroeër was die East End van Londen nie bekend vir sy uitstekende kookkuns nie, wat spesialiseer in tipiese voedsel uit die werkersklas, soos jellied palings, kokkels en tert en puree. Vandag is hierdie gebied egter te midde van 'n voedselrevolusie, die tuiste van 'n paar van die mees innoverende en eerlikste lekkernye in die Britse hoofstad. Dit is goeie nuus vir besoekers aan die Olimpiese en Paralimpiese Spele, aangesien die hoofstadion naby geleë is, wat baie geleenthede bied om die beste moderne en tradisionele kos van Oos -Londen te proe.

Kafees rondom die Olimpiese terrein
'N Spiesgooi van die belangrikste Olimpiese stadion af is die Counter Café, 'n rustige koffiekamer en 'n restaurant in die Stour Space-gebou, wat ook 'n kontemporêre kunsgalery huisves. The cafe has soft leather couches and large windows, where you can sit and look out at the curves of the outer Olympic Stadium wall. The emphasis is on organic produce, whether it is whisked into a fluffy scramble as part of the all-day brunch or baked into a golden-crusted homemade pie with fillings like lamb and aubergine, or pork, apple and fennel. During the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Counter Café will be a very popular option, so reservations for breakfast, lunch and dinner will be necessary well ahead of time.

For a good café alternative less than a mile to the north, try the Hackney Pearl , an award-winning restaurant and bar that specialises in weekly-rotating modern British dishes such as plaice with wild garlic butter and roasted Suffolk lamb as well as steaming cups of Square Mile coffee, some of the best beans roasted in London.

Not just another mall meal
The prospect of dining in a large shopping mall does not often inspire great expectations, but London’s second Westfield, which opened recently less than a mile from the Olympic Stadium, has one or two surprising exceptions. The Franco Manca pizza restaurant in the Brixton neighbourhood has often been dubbed “the best pizza in London”, and its Westfield branch continues the tradition, producing perfect, brick-oven, crisp-yet-chewy sourdough pizzas. Toppings are traditional and locally sourced where possible — such as the creamy buffalo mozzarella delivered from a farm in Somerset — and are best washed down with a glass of organic Ottavio Rube Italian wine.

Fresh, fast Mexican street food with a view of the Olympic Stadium is served at Westfield’s Wahaca and they serve delectable tamarind margaritas as well. Fresh, handmade pasta can be enjoyed at Pasta Remoli.

Fine dining
Les Trois Garcons in Shoreditch is a little farther afield — a 15-minute taxi ride — but it is well worth the extra miles. With swaying strings of crystals, stuffed animals wearing tiaras (including a giraffe’s head emerging horizontally from a wall), rich antiques in every corner and vintage handbags hanging from the ceiling, this converted Victorian pub is as notable for its lavish décor as it is for its food. The exceptional modern French cuisine, including dishes such as tea-smoked salmon with sesame and pickled fennel, followed by heavenly lemongrass pannacotta with tarragon ice cream, makes for a special meal away from the Olympic crowds.

For more adventurous modern cuisine influenced by a master of molecular gastronomy, try Viajante, one of London’s most experimental restaurants — a short Tube trip from the nearest Olympic Stadium station of Stratford to Bethnal Green — featuring unusual combinations such as duck heart with apple ribbons, pig’s tail with sweet cornbread, and milk sorbet with pickle and fresh cucumber.

Traditional East London fare
Less than a mile west of the Olympic Stadium, G Kelly’s Noted Eel and Pie Shop is a simple, sleek outfit of white-tiled walls and smartly uniformed staff, where traditional East End dishes have been served since 1939. Freshly baked minced beef pies come with lashings of mashed potato, all drizzled with a secret-recipe parsley sauce. Braver-hearted souls can try the eels, either served piping hot with mash, or cold, set in gobs of clear aspic

jelly and dressed with vinegar and pepper. Sue Venning is the latest in a long family line to run the shop and is well accustomed to convincing the uninitiated to sample a bite. “I ask them, ‘Do you eat sushi?’” Sue said with a bright laugh. “And when they admit that they do, I say, ‘Well then you can eat cold eels – what’s the difference?’”

For another British favourite, head to Poppies of Spitalfields, where Pop himself has been frying golden portions of fish and chips for more than 50 years in his vintage, diner-style restaurant.

East End food tours
To discover East London’s hidden gems, it is always best to ask a local. According to Charli Matthews of culinary walking tours Walk Eat Talk Eat, the food scene in East London is dynamic and always changing. “There’s nowhere else quite like it,” she said. “There are so many different types of food, reflecting all of the different immigrant groups that have come to the area throughout the years, from the Huguenots and Dutch weavers to the Jewish, Irish and Bangladeshi.” From the melting pot of Brick Lane in the inner east — a three-stop Tube trip or a 10-minute taxi ride from Olympics transport hub Stratford station — the tours head to lesser-known foodie areas such as Whitechapel, covering everything from Kashmiri teas and Swedish pies to scorchingly hot Bangladeshi curries and the traditional British foods treasured in this part of the city.


Olympic-standard food in East London

Go for the culinary gold in neighbourhoods soon to be swamped with visitors to the Games.

In times past, London’s East End was not known for its culinary excellence, specialising in typical working-class foods such as jellied eels, cockles, and pie and mash. Today, however, this area is in the midst of a food revolution, home to some of the most innovative and downright delicious offerings in the British capital. This is good news for visitors to the Olympic and Paralympic Games, as the main stadium is within close proximity, allowing plenty of opportunities to sample East London’s best modern and traditional fare.

Cafés around the Olympic site
A javelin’s throw from the main Olympic Stadium is the Counter Café, a laid-back coffee den and restaurant located within the Stour Space building, which also houses a contemporary art gallery. The cafe has soft leather couches and large windows, where you can sit and look out at the curves of the outer Olympic Stadium wall.
