St John, Spitalfields
One of my highlights over the last week was embarking on my food tour of London’s East End. It was a leaving present from my crew back in Melbourne and was the perfect way to occupy about four hours of my day, with eight stops featured. Up first was St John where we had a warm welcome to the morning with a bacon sandwich. The venue is a bit of an institution around these parts, famous for its top-to-tail philosophy with some wild concoctions such as the brain burger. Fortunately, our products were much more familiar and the group were pleased with the buttery bread, grilled char and tasty, glorious bacon. A perfect execution of a firm favourite. So far so good.
