This epic, “super-cheap” Jewish deli (nowadays “obviously in overseas guide books given the numbers of tourists in the line”) has been famous forever, thanks to its “delicious home-made beigels” and “incredible salt beef”, plus its 24/7 opening (and queue). Staff “can be very rude”, but “the brutal service is part of the charm”. Top Tip – “forget the beigel and have salt beef in a superb onion platzel – at £4.50 it’s one of London’s culinary bargains”.
“Salt beef and salmon – what more could you ask for?” say fans of the epic filled beigels, sold at prices seemingly unchanged from the 1980s, at this famous, if dead grungy, 24/7 East End bakery. Service is of the unsmiling, Soviet-era variety.
“Long waits, hectoring staff” and “imperious queue marshalling” do nothing to diminish the rockstar status of this epic, 24/7 Brick Lane veteran, which sells the “best beigels ever, and they’re SO cheap”.
“Hectic at weekends but great fun” – this legendary 24-hour Brick Lane takeaway is redolent of a vanished East End… as are its prices.
