During your past month
of meals your tastebuds will probably already have experienced
china, India, Italy and possibly something English.
But if you’re looking for something a little out
of the ordinary, then try eating out in east London.
Most people will find that when they think of trying something
different, food from the former Soviet Union is not top
of the list. However, discovering east London eatery Little
Georgia [map] may change that. Located in a former pub by Broadway Market,
this restaurant serves Georgia/Russian style meals which
are brighter and lighter than you may initially expect.

if nothing else. This Egyptian themed restaurant has French
cuisine on the menu, but it’s all just part of the
eccentric charm of this east London eatery. Most people
will find that they either love or hate the Sphinx fireplaces,
Greek masks and embellished alcoves, but you should find
that the food inspires a positive response.
