    Your East End experience begins outside of Whitechapel Art Gallery, located on Whitechapel High Street near Aldgate East tube station.

    As you stroll past the brightly colored restaurants lining Brick Lane, your guide offers insight into London’s cosmopolitan food culture and explains some of the area’s best dishes.

    In a variety of different restaurants, sample pathia, madras, and vegetarian curries, traditional Indian savories such as pakoras, sizzling Tandoori chicken, and a secret dish only revealed on the day of your tour. Receive a cold Indian beer, a glass of wine, or a soft drink, and paan, an Indian refresher made of betel leaf.

    After walking and feasting, your tour concludes on Brick Lane.

    You might want to ask the tour company as they might be able to customize. We were able to pick some items and I bet they won't mind making substitutes if you tell them in advance before you book?
