Mmm, back onto our favorite subject – food! Curry to be precise, as this week sees the start of the Brick Lane Curry Festival which runs until 10 October in London.
The two week long event is one of the largest curry festivals in the world with 56 restaurants participating. Brick Lane is regarded as Europe’s premier curry destination and the streets literally become paved with curry, as stalls set up along the streets selling traditional Bangladeshi, Indian and Pakistani snacks and sweets. There is also al fresco dining, entertainment and street performers during the event.
This year visitors can sample the specially created Brick Lane Green Curry which is billed as a mega healthy, low fat curry. So if you’re in the area on holiday add the festival to your itinerary! More information can be found on the official Brick Lane Curry Festival website.
