SquareMeal Review of
Whitechapel Road’s dirty little secret, this grungy boîte is an in-the-know alternative to the Brick Lane bar circuit & the unexceptional boozers of the City. Layers of yellowing paint &
splintering floorboards are what to expect by way of decor; but if you’re looking for colour, there’s always the bartenders’ tattoos or the loo walls’ graffiti. It comes as a surprise to find some
pretty superior thin & crispy pizzas here. Options such as La Reine topped with cured ham, black olives & mozzarella, or a Fiorentina with spinach & a runny egg can be ordered in half
sizes with a salad. Nothing tops £7. Continental beers dominate the taps, with Mort Subite, Cristal & König Ludwig Weissbier among the choices.
